    Project Wonderful ad, reading weregeek. I was bored and in a fantasy mood.

    Apparently those things actually work. I'm as surprised as your are.

    I really wish I could do NaNoWriMo, but November is always exam/thesis time.

    I'm glad to hear that the Project Wonderful ads are working. A friend of mine recommended them, as a lot of geeks visit sites in that ad network. We just started running the banner ads a few days ago, and have noticed a steady influx of new members.

    Starconstant's thread on NaNo had a real impact.

    Do any of you NaNo regulars know if it's possible to advertise on that forum? If we could purchase some ad space there, we would be reaching our target demographic.

    Unfortunately no, NaNo doesn't have ads :( They have links to other writing challenges like their own, but not really writing forums... I think just making posts in the new season (the board is wiped each October and archived) and/or having a link to here in signatures would be all we could do, and would probably be pretty effective.

    I'm not sure, but I think it was a FB or Twitter link/mention.

    Time travel.

    (Actually, it was a banner ad on Writing Forums.)

    I came across a banner ad somewhere, clicked on it. Then saved as a favorite to check out later. Did and joined.

    I found it through Facebook.
     
  17. I literally google searched "Writing Forums" to help spread the word about my own works while helping, discussing, and sharing with others. My publisher also told me to get my but on forums and just start talking as part of marketing. It's working...slowly, as I'm still selling, but I also just want to have some fun talking with like-minded people. When I clicked the first link in the google response, I saw a banner for this site and thought I would belong. Thus, I'm here.

    You should give us an Amazon link...
     
  19. Not sure I can just tell Amazon to put up a link. If I end up liking here and feel like I'm actually part of the community, I wouldn't mind linking a banner on my website...nothing too amazing in terms of traffic yet, but I got around 2000 hits last month.
     
  20. Saw a banner on another writers forum then did a Google search (yes, capitalize Google)
