If you are reading this from your web browser, you can’t help but notice the ads on this page.
However, if you subscribe to my RSS feed, you can read the latest articles without the ads, except maybe for 1 embedded ad here and there.
Why So Many Ads?
The mission statement of Speedendurance.com is to provide athletes of all levels the information required to better themselves, legally and drug free. Ordinary folks trying to get in shape or lose a few pounds can also benefit from this site.
Like a true Buddhist, we never turn anyone away from a lack of funds. There must never be a restriction to access information, for example, having to pay $60 for a lifetime membership at other similar forums (** cough cough Mike Boyle cough cough **)
All the information on this site is free of charge.
In return, ads are in place to raise money.
Where Does the Money Go?
If you read my about page, I am a coach of the Metro AC track club in Greater Vancouver, BC. So far, we have produced 1 Olympian (Steve Larsen, Bobsled, 2006 Olympics in Torino) and 1 Bronze medal from the Commonwealth Games (Nathan Taylor, 2006 4×100 meter Relay. See photo on left).
And with the 2008 Summer Olympics approaching, we need to get ready for the Canadian Trials. Either go hard or go home!
Travel expenses account for 90% of our budget. That means warm weather camps and competitions in April, May and June.
As a 100m sprinter, you need to race at least 5-7 times before you get into the zone. A lot of things happen in the 100m; it’s not a simple 10 second race as one may think. One of the reasons why Asafa Powell lost in Osaka 2007 was the lack of races leading up to the championships.
So at this point, if you’ve read this far, please feel free to leave a donation!
Need to Raise Money for Your Club?
If you have a web site, and think scattering a few Amazon ads will create those massive sales commissions, think again. Monetizing a Blog changes like the weather.
This blog uses Shareasale for Affiliate Marketing, because they offer many products related to this blog. I was purchasing items such as Affordable Supplements and Executive Book Summaries years before this Blog was started. So I know they sell quality products.
If you are new to Affiliate marketing, one of the best places to learn and mingle is the Affiliate Summit. Local Vancouver mogul John Chow is having a contest on attending this show.
I will do my very best to attend this conference and learn a few tips. You can never stop learning, which is the corollary to my mission statement.
