Well this is quite the coincidence. I just today, canceled a monthly donation to a certain org. I am not one to give credit to every detail to that certain higher power we are all here because of, but this is one of those situations where I have to wonder???!!!

A couple things to note. Since this is a monthly pledge it comes out whatever day he has it set up. Also, the default amount when you select custom amount, is $5 which you can change to whatever you want.

Robert, I think you can set that up to include one time donations, if someone wanted to donate, well it's self descriptive. I'm glad you posted this, some time ago when I first found your info I started reading your book and listening to it, and I sent you an email asking for your Patreon because I didn't want to buy it on Amazon I know they get part of it.:cool:

Some months back I started up a new pay-per-click campaign on Google. I had used it about 12-13 years ago after my site started slipping down the search results. Both campaigns were very effective in driving traffic to my website at e-watchman. I only bid on keywords that Jehovah's Witnesses might use in a search. But a few months ago Google initiated a new policy requiring verification. I was okay with that but from what I found it was impossible for an individual to meet their requirements. To avoid the hassle I switched over to Bing, Microsoft's search engine, and just started a new campaign. I set a daily budget of $50. If I max out every day I will not be able to sustain that level of expenditure for very many months. I have a Patreon account and receive several hundred dollars per month from you, which I really appreciate. This covers my expenses for website hosting and other things with some leftover, which, as I say, had been being used to promote my site on Google.

Anyway, if you are inclined to help out you can pledge as little as $1 per month. That would buy probably one click, maybe two depending on the cost of their keywords. I set up this forum anticipating an inflow of JWs who are disturbed over the Watchtower's vaccine mandate. Just a few minutes ago I was informed that two elders in a congregation in Europe were removed from serving as overseers because they did not accept the Governing Body's vaccination policy. It can only get worse. With your support, I can potentially reach 10s of thousands of JW's and interested persons as they browse the Internet looking for information.

If you can help click here for my Patreon page. Or, as an alternative if you have a PayPal account you can make a one-time donation to watchmanspost@gmail.com

Thanks in advance for your support.

By the way, Bing already disallowed one of my keyword search terms. Jehovah's Witnesses vaccines ain't allowed. Surprise, surprise!
You’ve probably already heard about Rumble and GAB. I thought I‘d mention them because they do have advertising on those sites and those are the social media and video sites I use. I try not to use YouTube and I don’t have Facebook or Twitter accounts. Probably silly of me but I just don’t like the thought of them tracking my interests.

Robert it said it wouldn’t be charged until Feb 1st 2022. you can charge mine now if u want. excuse me if you already mentioned this. my eyesight isnt the best and i miss stuff sometimes
That is how Patreon works. All donations are charged at the end of every month. Thanks for your support. By the way, my ads are starting to take off on Bing. I have been charged $75 for two days worth of clicks. 😜🥳

Thanks again everyone for your PayPal gifts and Patreon. I upped the budget limit yesterday and the most clicks are coming from people searching for jw.org. Looks like it is costing nearly 2 bucks a click. Still, I feel so absolutely diabolic lol :ninja:

Thanks again everyone for your patronage, which this month topped out at just $1,000. (A run $ 270-month website hosting expenses and other expenses like podcast hosting.)

Below is a screenshot of my Microsoft Bing dashboard. At one point to test the interest I set the limit to $100 per day, which it maxed out every day. So, I set the limit down to $40 per day so as not to break the bank. So, in the last month my account has been charged $1,525, which has bought over 1,000 clicks

Working part time I can only afford coins of small value but this month I'll be able to set aside a little more than last month. Hopefully as the community grows there'll be more with the awareness and means to support you.

I just cancel each month before the next charge then join again early the next month when I know what I can budget that month

¿alguien puede darme alguna orientación sobre cómo hacer un pago único con paypal?
en mi cuenta del PP
voy a enviar dinero
ingrese el enlace que Robert dio en el cuadro de busqueda y luego tengo que seleccionar una opcion
por ejemplo, cuenta bancaria
retiro de efectivo
donar
y algunos otros no relevantes
que selecciono la pestaña de donaciones parece ser específica para organizaciones benéficas registradas
?
¿Es más fácil convertirse en mecenas y es posible hacer un pago único con mecenas?
Gracias por cualquier ayuda

Gracias de antemano por su apoyo.

Por cierto, Bing ya rechazó uno de mis términos de búsqueda de palabras clave. Las vacunas de los testigos de Jehová no están permitidas. ¡Sorpresa sorpresa!
