I rarely get the gist of what the ads are about.. I'm too busy thinking "Who the fuck decided this pitchman had a voice for radio?!"

I am ok with whatever advertising you choose that keeps it going. I do not see the advertisers having any effect on your ability to make your own choices. This isn't the Department of FTL, it's simply FTL staying on the air. The pitches you make to earn their money is what has to be done when funds are strained. As you said Mark, if we don't like it then we can pay to not have it. :) Thanks guys!

Neither Ian nor I suggest that there is anything wrong with accepting government benefits. The government steals from you, there is nothing wrong with getting some of it back. I am not fond of the tone of the ad, but the advertiser says we are the best source of leads for them. They also offered the highest rate we have ever received. Advertising is kinda tough in this market, we make our pay checks from advertising. You know what happens if we don't get advertisers, right?

If you want the advertiser to go away, I will do so for $2000/month on a 6 month contract.
That is a horrible position to hold.  It is one thing to use government roads, schools etc. because they hold a monopoly on those services but to collect stolen money, is a completely different situation and absolutely indefensible.  This obviously does not include tax rebates etc. as that is YOUR money to begin with.

Can't we have a thread about how several people have tried a particular advertiser and the product and service have been great? You know one of the primary complaints about libertarians is that they are cynical and hate everything. Everyone take a deep breathe, and think about the gratitude that you have for the advertisers that bring you Free Talk Live and its corresponding BBS. I don't you folks understand that I am not making what I was making when I quit my job in Sarasota 3 years ago. I didn't expect it to take this long.


  You pissed about not making much money? Do something about it then, why whine to us? Just taking the piss I am. Problem is that it's hard to get a lot of what one might call mainstream ads from companies people know and trust, honestly a lot of the stuff your advertisors sell can be total shit. The ones I have used are Liberty stickers - very good service, Amazon Canada and Newegg Canada, all good shit. You might have better luck making money through the types of partnerships you have with Amazon and Newegg. I have seen the new water filter thingy in some businesses but the health food/diet stuff, no thanks. Sometimes it feels like everything supporting you guys is either looney tunes Alex Jones type shit or so expensive that I would need to become a federal politician in order to afford it.

Try these guys yet?

Try festivals as well, not a regular source but they can be desperate to get the word out. Isn't Jason O running a brew company as well? They gonna enter festivals? They can tell other beer makers they use you to advertise and lie through their teeth, network. I buy beer and whiskey from across the globe, if I don't drink it then it's a good investment to hold onto.

Advertising is serious business.  I think Mark's getting hosed for a hundred bucks a show to cover that much territory, when a product relating to military service hits a 1:10 listenership in thirty markets.  Thats a ridiculously hot number.  Thats like counting cigarette lighters during Freebird. 


Theres a difference between being an active participant in certain gov-related programs, and a passive participant.
