‘An Englishman In San Diego’ will do what it can to provide the best coverage and insight into San Diego Comic-Con, UK Cons and pop culture news, as well as posting blogs from some of the best and brightest voices on t’nets… but, to encourage these writers to contribute, some times you have to bribe them. With cash.
In a perfect world, we would love all of our income to be advertising-based. We do want to hear from comic publishers/pop culture companies/comic convention organisations that want to share their efforts and products with our readers and, for a modest cost, we can share those efforts in an attractive and appealing manner, across the AEISD brand – from site skinning and banner ads, to on-screen inserts on the Cup O’ Tea Hangouts, to branded content sharing on our social media feeds. We can custom-build an seemless advertising strategy around your brand, in-house: to find out more, fill in the Contact Form and we will be in touch ASAP to discuss your needs.
If you’re a reader of the site or a viewer of the hangouts, and if can spare it, you can help us financially so we can do what we do, more often and better. We have a Patreon page so you can support the hangouts directly, week-to-week, donating exactly what you feel we’re worth to each Hangout, which, not going to lie, is my ideal scenario because such donations tell me exactly what you’re feeling about the show we’re trying to put on – it makes you an active producer of the show! Please, do check out our Patreon page, here.
That’s the ‘crowdfunding’ option we’ve got set up at the moment. We’re not overly keen on putting together a GoFundMe because, to be honest, it seems overly convoluted for what is basically a begging bowl – we’d prefer that you give something and we give something definite back. Likewise, it’s the same reason we didn’t set up a Kickstarter, that’s even worse: that’s an endless road of us asking for more and more money as the site progresses and (fingers crossed) grows.
Still, we appreciate that some might not be interested in a long-term commitment of a subscribed donation and you’d much prefer to make one simple contribution, no muss no foul – to you we say, make a one-off PayPal donation into the pot which we will then put towards attending conventions to cover, equipment so we can cover them better, or even getting to the point where we can pay contributors which is absolutely the end goal. You can donate here:
We’d love to hear from you if you want to help us make the site a better place to come visit, with more exciting content and insightful writing. You can either pay for advertising spots, featured on the Homepage and throughout the posts, or spots on the vlogs and audio uploads available from this site.
You can even PayPal us a contribution, out of the goodness of your heart – anything that can allow us to grow and propser will be gratefully accepted!
This site is, and will always be, a non-profit site: the administration costs are handled by the site and all monies raised from sponsorship will go directly to the contributors on the site. The distribution of these monies will be calculated by post views but the calculations will be always made transparent to all contributors and sponsors, on request.
