We need help. I’ve been maintaining WWR out of pocket for years and have tried to steer away from heavy advertising. But things are changing and I could use some help. I tried this for Hourtime and it worked so I’m going to try it here. Basically I’ve created a Patreon page that allows you to pledge to WWR on a monthly basis. Think of it as a tip jar. I want to pay Patrick and Matt what they’re worth but, as you can see, the site doesn’t make much in advertising and I’ve never gone out of my way to suck up to watch companies for ad dollars. Hence, I pay these guys and for the server fees out of my pocket.
If I can’t get $500 a month in pledges I have to shut the site down.
We see about 40,000 visitors a month. That means we have some dedicated fans. I’m not asking for much: $1 is enough to add a little gas to the tank. My mission has long been to focus on affordable watches and, sadly, it seems like WWR is no longer affordable for me to run.
Please pop over here and pledge what you can. If you pledge $2.50 or more I’ll make a Wall of Heroes on which you and/or your banner will appear and for $5 a month I’ll give you a signed copy of Marie Antoinette’s watch.
Regardless of the pledge, I want to thank you for being a loyal reader. It’s been fun.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
