All the content on this site is free and will remain so. That said, there are a few reasons you might want to contribute to the cost of running the site:
1. You value the site and want it to improve. Even a modest income from the site helps to free up time to write new articles.
2. You got some help from the site and would like to say thank you.
3. You would like to browse the site without ads – and it is substantially faster that way. Even if you use an ad blocker, becoming a gold sponsor improves performance more since the ad scripts are not generated at all when you view the page.
4. Platinum sponsors can choose to have their name listed on the Sponsors page together with a link to their site.
How to sponsor ITWriting.com
There is no minimum amount for a donation. However, there are benefits in donating a little more.
- If you donate £10 or more you will become a gold sponsor and get ad-free browsing for 1 year.
- If you donate £100 or more you will become a platinum sponsor and have, in addition to ad-free browsing, the option of being listed on the Sponsors page with the further option of a link back to your site, for 1 year. The only proviso is that links are subject to approval and links to inappropriate sites – for example, pornography, gambling or pharmaceutical sites – will not be accepted. The idea is to sponsor the site, not to purchase a link.
To become a sponsor, click the link below which will take you to PayPal.
Note: gold and platinum sponsors will receive an email advising the log-in details for ad-free browsing. Platinum sponsors who wish to be listed on the Sponsors page should indicate the name or company name they would like to appear there, and the URL if required, in the Special Instructions section of the PayPal checkout.
