ADP Donated Ad Program
We need to continue providing our members’ products and services to augment their business while attracting prospective members with strong incentives to join our association. Industry research, sales collateral, an expanded Convention and other valuable products and services, all new offerings that are not included in the current operating budget. For us to provide tools that our members need, the Board Reserve (sometimes referred to as the “war chest”) needs to be replenished, and that requires assistance from every publisher member.
What we are doing is proposing a “win-win” solution by recommending that all publishers participate in the Donated Ad Program which requires each participating publisher member to agree to donate ad space in each of its directories. The victory for your company includes the opportunity to possibly expand several underdeveloped headings while ADP wins by building non-dues revenue. This in turn enables us to create new products and offer additional services to you as members.
Background of the Donated Ad Program
ADP entered into an agreement with Alarm Advisors, Senior Life Insurance and FTD. The program specifies that with a publisher’s donated ad space, ADP will receive revenue from every contact generated by a unique toll-free number.
