We've implemented ads on the site

Read about our decision to implement ads on Hitmarker, what this means for us as a business moving forward and how you can give feedback on them in this handy blog post.

We’re all about transparency here at Hitmarker. That’s why we’ve written this blog post to explain our decision to implement display ads on our site, and to open the floor to any feedback or questions you may have.

Those of you who’ve been using our service for long enough might remember an early version of the site having ads. You might also recall that we made the decision to remove them altogether in order to give you the best user experience possible.

18 months have passed since then, believe it or not, and a lot of things have changed for us as a company. Ultimately, we’re now at a point where we need to generate revenue, as Hitmarker has been run at a loss since it was launched in May 2017. Sadly this can’t continue forever!

We already have five full-time members of staff and our ambition is to grow significantly over the coming years so that we can keep providing you with the best job hunting resource in esports. There’s so much we want to build, and the only way we can do so is by getting serious.

We’re pursuing multiple revenue streams, but display ads are a no brainer for a free-to-use website with consistent traffic in this day and age. The ads have been integrated in a way that should impact your browsing as little as possible, and you can rest assured that there won’t be any pop-ups or takeovers coming!

Still, we’d love to hear your feedback on them, whether good or bad. As always, you can send us an email to info@hitmarkerjobs.com or drop us a DM on Twitter. We promise to take everyone’s thoughts on board, and to make alterations wherever we can.

Finally, we want to stress that this doesn’t mean that we’re struggling as a company. In fact, the opposite is true! We hope to be able to share some really exciting news with you soon, and we should be hiring for a number of positions at the company in the near future too…

Thanks for your time, and your continued support of our platform!
