Help NoFilmSchool Grow!

08.27.10 @ 4:26PM Tags :

Since re-launching in January of this year, NoFilmSchool has received over 500,000 pageviews from 200,000 visits. With an average time on the site of 5 minutes, that accounts for one million minutes collectively spent on this site in 2010! Compared to the largest web sites out there, this is nothing in terms of traffic. But for a one-man operation — there is no marketing department, no ad sales team, no dedicated designers or developers — it’s been eye-opening and very pleasantly surprising. However, sometimes it feels like I’ve spent one million minutes working on the site myself. My eventual goal is to bring in other writers in order to A) take the content here to the next level, and B) keep the site going when I’m off shooting and can’t post something every day. But that’s still a ways off, so in the meantime, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know about a page I’ve added. The Support NoFilmSchool! page includes B&H and Amazon search boxes — if you use them to buy anything, NoFilmSchool gets a small percentage of each sale (the percentage comes out of the store’s margin; it won’t cost you a penny more). There are a couple of kinks to work out — why is the B&H search box messed up? — but by all means, please think of this page anytime you’re planning on buying anything from B&H Photo or — it’s a great way of supporting NoFilmSchool at no additional cost to you. Thanks as always for reading!

  • Do I have to search for each item through the search box — what if I’m buying more than one thing?

    • No, just one search will do! They use a cookie to track where you came from; it doesn’t matter how many searches or what items, as long as you came from my site in the last 24 hours.
