We are a business aimed at raising money for charity, offering people a chance to publicise events, projects, motivational stories including business and personal start up ideas plus a chance to win a weekly cash prize. Our target audience is mainly students and our membership database is growing each week. We currently have over 2000 members. Our views and click rates are good. Our business model is that the prizes should be covered by the advertisements on our site. We are currently using GoogleAdsense and the revenue from this has dropped dramatically. We also have no say in the adverts posted and want to start choosing companies that fit with our positive ethos and also into the giving people a hand onto the first step of their ladder whilst helping us to raise money for charity. We wanted to offer new companies a chance to a advertise with us but are finding it really hard to get companies to sign up as they think the site is too good to be true. How can we convince people that our site really is genuine and find the right type of companies to advertise with us. Advertising doesn't have to cost a fortune and we are looking for smaller companies to place adverts or for a sponsor. What would be your advice please? We are called Banana Crumble but don't google that as you just get cooking recipes so use the www and our name and co.uk or search on Banana Crumble good news and you should find us. Many thanks for your help and hopefully we can help some new start up companies if their target audience are students.
