In the midst of a sweaty fervor chanting Krishna while dancing in circles barefoot feeling the holy spirit fill me with bliss to one of my favorite Mahamantra songs, I will embed at the end of this article, I heard a bell come from my computer with a new private message I received from an old friend and subscriber of my old YouTube channel. A few years ago he had sent me an email asking if I had any way for him to make a donation in appreciation of my work. At the time I didn’t have anything set up for it and told him if he wanted to make a donation to someone, donate to Santos Bonnacci instead. Anyhow this same friend, now three years later sent me a private message and asked me to visit a website called ko-fi to open an account and after checking it out I decided to.
I would never use Patreon or any of the other Silicon Valley authoritarians trying to shut down people speaking truth but these guys look ok so I figured, why not? I wrote this article because I figured I might as well talk about this topic among numerous others that have synchronistically occurred tying together supporting alternative platforms.
There are many platforms springing up to replace the establishment dinosaurs and I want to give them a shout out to tell people about them if they don’t already know. In the chart below I will show alternatives for the currently oppressive platforms.
I know the comparison between PayPal and ko-fi isn’t perfect but PayPal has a history of shutting down people’s accounts for wrong think and though ko-fi uses PayPal as a form of payment it isn’t a direct PayPal donation link and they can always change if they need to.
I want to give a very special thank you to Ryan at Fomo for being so helpful and generous in the creation of this website for providing a way to keep the lights on through the ads he provides here. A man not afraid to take on the machine always earns my highest respect, thank you Ryan and the advertisers who you provide here.
That being said Ryan sent me an email the other day about a promotion at Fomo that is pretty awesome on how to advertise on Fomo sites with some free credits! This is a great way for creators/seekers to support each other, something I always try to promote any way I can. I often publish articles by other writers here and link back to the original website it was published on to connect these networks of good sources for the readers here. This is an added bonus and one more step in the direction of severing our dependence on the gatekeepers holding all the keys trying to tell us what is and is not acceptable to talk about through the use of economic terrorism and censorship. I would love to see people advertising their efforts to defy these tyrants here using these free credits! I will get a real kick out of seeing the ads. I will post the email below he sent me in its entirety.
For publishers who write about niche topics, it’s likely a handful of your readers would benefit from advertising on your website.
While some may reach out on their own via email, we believe that automating the ability to advertise on your website drives more sales and less overhead.
For this reason, Fomo is offering a closed BETA program that helps publishers refer advertisers to run campaigns directly on their website, email-free.
This experimental program includes $25 in free credits for your advertiser, which is automatically assigned to your website.
We consider this a win-win: the advertiser gets to run a campaign on your website, and you get guaranteed payouts without manual back and forth.
Suppose you write about kid’s toys. Sometimes you take photos and write critical reviews in exchange for a cash fee or complimentary sample product.
A brand that wants to work with you might visit your “work with me” page, reach out via email, and a few days later you agree to a deal.
Now, using Fomo’s campaign referral link, that same advertiser can create a Fomo account in a few clicks, launch a campaign, and be live on your website in minutes without any manual back and forth.
Tips to Get Started
If you don’t already have an “Advertise with Us” page on your website or blog, we highly recommend creating one. This could be linked in your head navigation or your footer.
On this page, include a contact form for possible business collaborations as well as something like this:
“Want to advertise your products or services on my blog for as little as 20 cents per click? Go here (insert link) to build your own campaign and you can be live on my site in under 30 minutes.”
“To inquire about a business collaboration, email me here. Or, advertise on my website TODAY by creating a campaign at Fomo (insert link) and choosing your targeting options from the campaign builder. Your first $25 is free!“
Embed your “fomo.com/advertise-with-fomo” referral link into this text. If you don’t have this URL, email email@example.com to gain access. Note: this is NOT the same as your publisher referral link inside Account settings.
We look forward to helping publishers increase ad revenues by making it easier to convert existing demand already browsing your website.
Here is my specific link if you want to do some free advertising here at Esoteric Awakening.
I suppose that’s all for now, I just wanted to write a quick article on this topic to promote these alternative platforms and encourage people to use them and to support the people going to bat for humanity and truth any way they can. YouTube just lost 51 billion dollars in revenue due to their censorship practices and attempts to brainwash people through gaming their algorithm to promote biased content. Every minute thing you do to ween yourself off of big brother makes a monumental difference. Changing your habits is key to changing your life, new habits = new reality.
Try to be mindful of how you personally are contributing to this system of oppression and deceit and how you can contribute to dismantling it with just some small changes in habits especially by supporting those spearheading the defiance I am often mentioning here at Esoteric Awakening. They invest a lot of time and energy into what they do often times at a sizable personal risk for very little gain. As Plato once said:
No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth
If you want to donate to Esoteric Awakening the new button is on the right above the Recent Posts menu. If you want to donate to others, I mention many people more than worthy of it in nearly every article I publish.
My next article is going to be on the science of giants by request from a number of people. I will get to work on it as soon as I can, hopefully within a few days. Until then dance and chant in love and defiance raising your vibration and activating your dormant chakras! Krishna Krishna, Hare Krishna, Hare Rama!
