Help Make Wise Bread Better (and Win a Free Wise Bread Book)
I’m sure many of you remember Andrea’s recent Facebook ad debacle (the one where she was continually fed irrelevant, and sometimes insulting, ads while browsing.) Here at Wise Bread, on the other hand, we strive to keep things fresh, applicable, and on-target for our readers.
That's why we've teamed up with Federate Media to develop partnerships, giveaways, and advertising that will be helpful and interesting to our readers.
Fill Out the Survey Win a Free Book!
We're giving away 15 free copies to randomly-selected readers who help us out with the survey. Fill out this survey by May 10th and you'll automatically be entered to win! Giveaway is open to U.S. residents, age 18+ at the time of entry. Entries will be accepted until May 10 th, 2009 at 11:59 pm EST. Winners will be announced here on
May 11th the first week of June.
[editors note: Sorry guys, we found out that we couldn't access any of the user data until AFTER the survey ends at the end of the month. We'll have to wait until the first week of June to pick and announce the winners. The entry deadline remains unchanged. ]
The survey is completely confidential and anonymous. Your contact information will NOT be shared with any advertisers.
Why We Need Your Help
Wise Bread has been affected by the economy like everyone else. It's no secret that advertising dollars have dried up across the board. While bigger websites like MSN Money can afford to hire a dedicated sales team, we prefer to stick to writing and sharing tips.
That's why we're teaming up with Federated Media, a super cool company that represents other great sites like The Simple Dollar, Boing Boing, Craft Zine, Digg and Dooce. Federated Media will take care of all the advertising work, so we can focus on providing you with great posts.
With this new partnership comes a fantastic opportunity to keep the ads you see on Wise Bread tasteful, relevant, and open to serving you. The best way to do this is for you to give us your unfettered feedback on who you are and why you read Wise Bread.
While there will be no options for choosing cheeseburgers, glow sticks, or unicorns on this survey (all things that I know I want in a fantastic website), we’re pretty confident you’ll find it to be quick, painless, and completely on target. Remember, by being honest and thorough, you equip us to give you what you really want (sans the horned ponies, of course.)
