A study by Red Crow Marketing in 2015 uncovered that Americans are exposed to between 4,000 and 10,000 advertisements each day. Billboards. Radio commercials. TV spots. Browsers. Social media. The more media channels, they say, the more opportunity for advertisements. And one thing the world has an abundance of is media channels.
Well, we’re not interested in advertisements. Not at all. And we’re determined to never assume the role of host for advertisements at Orson’s Publishing. The downside of that is that Orson’s Publishing will continue to miss out on what could be a lucrative stream of revenue.
It’s a loss we’re very happy to work toward mitigating. But it’s a loss nonetheless, considering $1,000s have already been put forth by Orson’s Publishing staff in order to fund a lean production.
Another loss we're willing to take: we don't charge writers a reading fee in order to submit to our literary journal, Orson's Review, or for submitting their book-length works for consideration. We're determined to never do so.
If you feel the same way as we do, and you’d like to help us remain ad and reading charge free — or if you just like what Orson’s Publishing does and want to help ensure it continues — please consider adding to our tip jar.
