    So, I am starting to get more advertisers for DM, and wanted to fill you guys in on what this means for you.

    Unlike other sites, I don’t just run random banners off google or anything like that. I also won’t advertise for companies that I don’t trust to provide a quality product. No sketchy bike companies, no random banner ads for automotive parts or CCM bikes, and no completely unconnected ads (buy a log home cheap today!)

    What I am going to do is work hard with advertisers to bring you guys exclusive access to deals that others don’t get. This will be for DM members, as a way of thanking you for being part of this community.

    Starting in the near future, Sweet Petes, CORE and Cycle Solutions will begin offering DM members deals on stuff that aren’t promoted anywhere else. As well, they will be sponsoring give aways, contents, and events as well.

    I will also be adding on some new outside industry advertisers, the first being Downtown Camera. I have been getting my photo gear from them, and they are keen on helping other photographers get the right gear to meet their needs. Good guys all around, with no bullshit sales tactics.

    Anyways, check out the home page for Sweet Pete banners, and the forum for Cycle Solutions/ core. I have some new guys coming for the media section and the features section too that will make you guys pretty happy.

    Glad to hear. I can’t even begin to tell you how glad I am there aren’t any talking smiley ads.

    Don’t think I’ve ever clicked on a Google ad on purpose before, whereas I tend to click around on Sweet Pete’s and Cycle slut’s sites.

    No kidding. Related ads are sick compared to PB’s “DIXIE CHOPPER” ads after every video…

    Nice work! 😀

    Excellent Jeff. Since I’m rarely ever in Toronto, could we get information by chance to let us out of towners know of any killer deals going down at shops in the GTA? I hope it’s not too much to ask 8)

    Sound’s great. One suggestion, and feel free to agree or disagree with me, but I think some seasonal ad’s would be cool. Like in the winter one or two snowboard and ski ads from some shops thats are reputable.

    Just because here most people put away the bikes for any serious use and switch to some type of winter sport. Just a thought, it may be dumb, but I figure I’d put it out there.

    But I’m really glad you decided not to have all those damn ads that no one clicks anyway. There just flat out annoying. Great job on the site!

    Love the idea of reaching beyond bike shops, Dwntwn camera is great… what others? apparel? food stores? Would be banging to gets some direct from manufacturer deals, but it would be hard to do so without stepping on other advertisers.

    If you get me a deal on photoshop suite I’d have your children with Dan!

    great idea jeff!

    few questions.
    do you design the ads urself?
    if you do, ever thought of making flash ads? they can seem to draw the eye in better.

    if you cant make them urself, id be more than happy to help you out

    Flash ads suck, because they take too damn long, and they are difficult to measure for clicks and feedback. Gifs work well because thye are to the point, and load fast.

    I will have a few updates for this in a few days. In the meantime, new banners for CS going up tonight. 😉
