are some of the typical questions we are asked...
Q) What exactly do I get when I
buy sponsorship space on the Million Pixel March website?
You are actually buying a lot. For one, you are helping to support
great veteran causes. Here is what else you get:
- You will become part
of our Sponsors directory where potential customers
can easily find you.
- A link on our US Map or
Wall of Heroes to your website. It will be live
for at least 5 years.
- A listing on our Million Pixel March Facebook
Q) How much do the
sponsorships (pixels) cost?
Each pixel is $1 and you must buy a minimum
of a 10 pixel by 10 pixel (100 pixels) ad for $100. Click
here to see the different ad configurations.
Remember they will be up for 5 years so a $100 sponsorship averages
out to just $20 a year.
Q) Who makes the ads on the Map?
We will make them unless you want to supply your own. If you
choose to submit your own ad to us, it must be made to the exact
size in pixels. The ads are fairly small and cant be overly detailed.
Q) How much sponsorship can I buy?
There is no maximum size but the area has to be able to form
a rectangle. Sponsorships must be in increments of 100 px. Click
here to see the different configurations. If
you want to be creative with your ad shape, just tell us and if
we have the space, we'll accomodate you.
Q) Can I buy just one pixel?
Unfortunately no. It would be too hard to create a
linkable spot. If you don't have enough money but still want to
be a part of the March, team up with some friends until you get
enough to buy the minimum square size and pick a website or blog
you want to be linked to.
Q) Will this site work on my SmartPhone?
Yes it will but if you want to see the map the clearest,
you should view it on a computer with an average or bigger than
average monitor. We are working to have a smartphone version of
the site minus the map which we will be launching soon.
Q) What is the difference between the
U.S. Map and the Wall of Heroes?
The Wall of Heroes recognizes an individual Veteran by
name. You will still be mentioned on our Sponsors page so both technically
work the same way.
Q) How long will the sponsorships appear
on the page?
The page will stay online for a minimum of 5 years (2019) so
your information will be up for at least that long.
Q) Who is benefiting from this site?
After the administration and operating costs are taken care,
we are supporting many Veteran causes. Most commercial sites offer
to support their causes by donating 5% of what is made. We will
be giving at least 30% of what we make to the U.S. Veteran groups.
The beneficiaries will be mentioned on our Facebook and Blog updates.
Q) Why the Million Pixel March head towards
U.S. citizens have been marching to Washington DC for every
cause known to man. This is our symbolic way of building awareness
for the many causes that we are supporting.
Q) What if I have a question that is not
You can send it to us from our Contact
Us page and we'll answer you back personally.
Q) This seems like a different type of
sponsorship. Has this ever been done before?
The inspiration goes back in to 2005, when a young man from England
named Alex Tew built a simple grid box and sold advertising to raise
money for his college education.
Q) How will I know if people are seeing
We run tracking software and keep a running tally of exactly
how many people see the sponsorships on a daily basis. This information
is updated on our Facebook page.
Q) How can I tell people about the site so they can
come see my sponsorship?
We have all the social media share buttons clearly showing on
our homepage. Simply go to the homepage and click on the social
media outlet you would like to utilize and share our site with your
contacts or copy this link and send it to them: http://www.millionpixelmarch.us
Q) Can I select space on a particular geographical
portion of the map that covers my business' area?
No. We are starting on the West Coast and the left edge of our
Wall of Heroes and working our way toward Washington DC.
It would be just too hard to individually accommodate every request
and would possibly leave unused areas. We can place you either on
the U.S. Map and/or the Wall of Heroes just by asking but both will
be filled from left to right.
