    Advertising is always wasted space.  I want actionable intelligence.  I literally can't remember the last ad that told me something I didn't already know.

    Information quality is key.

      reluctant to put ads in the magazine. And especially with this type of thing, there is going to be SO MUCH information from all over the country. So many states and localities with interesting stuff that we need to know. It seems I might piss off readers with ads to organizations they already know about or causes they're already aware of.

        and I am certainly no marketing pro, but I know from years of doing h.s. yearbooks that something as simple as a page that says "THIS PAGE MADE POSSIBLE BY MOTHER JONES MAGAZINE" with a direct link can make a difference. I am that person who will then click on the link and follow. Would I do it for "BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT"? No, but if I am already reading your content, chances are I want to read MORE content of a similar nature.

        Best of luck. When I figure out where I put my debit card, I plan on subscribing...and when school is out, I might send you some articles about the disaster that is Tennessee politics.

          thanks for your input. I'm going to keep all the options open for sure. The primary goal is for the magazine to inform and to provide us with the revenues necessary to keep service costs to candidates ridiculously low so they can run STONG CREDIBLE COMPETITIVE campaigns against our well-oiiled opponents.

          We'll do what we must.

            I would definitely prefer an ad-free read, no doubt :-)

              to get your primary revenue from 10,000 or 100,000 subscribers than relying on a few big organizations to fuel the effort. Much more stable. And my strong preference.
