I’ve been rushing to find a solution to this mess for days now, and I might be close to a solution.
Ads are no longer a option it seems. I’ve already heard back from 9 of the ad networks that I’ve applied to, and I’ve gotten 8 rejection letters. The only one to accept me was pretty shady. I briefly tried them out, and it turns out they had terrible ads that paid horribly. There are still some ad networks I haven’t heard back from yet, but at this rate it seems like a long shot any of those will pan out.
At this point, a paid subscription service seems like the only option to keep SapphireFoxx alive. Handling payments will be the tricky part, so I’ve asked four different merchant services to review my site to see if it is acceptable to their standards. I’ve heard back from all four of them (including PayPal), and they all think my site is acceptable to use their services. It seems they all have different standards than the ad companies.
I am worried that they could turn on me at some point like Google did, but if I could use 4 of them, then one backing out wouldn’t be a disaster as long as I got subscribers to switch to one of the other carriers.
So this is where you come in. I need to maintain a certain number of subscribers to make the site sustainable. Here is how things would work:
– A subscription would only cost $5 per month.
– Any new content I make from this point on will be exclusive to subscribers.
– Any old content that is already made will be in the free section of the site.
– There will be no contract, you can drop out whenever you want.
– There will be no more mature content.
I know many of you will not be pleased with that last statement, but I don’t want my site to become a porn site. To clarify, I define mature content as anything with nudity (or beyond). There will still be sexy material, such as sexy outfits, kissing, and such, but no porn. Not only am I feed up with the trouble it causes, but I also want to see TG become more respected someday. I want to make good stories that people will love to see and respect.
I know money is tight for a lot of people, so I’m trying to make this as affordable as I can. In each month I’ll put out at least two or three animations with a new comic page EVERYDAY. I’m offering an entire month of the content you love for the price of a sandwich.
So, if you want to see my working continued, like Stealing From Sis, Crossplay, Shifting Roommates, and any new series I have planned, then the only way this all will continue is with the subscription service. Like I said, I need to find out if there are enough people out there willing to do it. I’ve made a poll to find this out. Please be honest when answering because lying will not help me figure out what is best to do next.
The poll can be found on the left side of any page on the site.
