What is it?
The goal of this project is to facilitate cross-promotion of initiatives, products, projects and events between aligned partners on a barter basis. Each organization promotes its partners’ campaigns by displaying automatically selected banner images on its website.
Below is an example of a horizontal banner — it shows randomly selected campaigns from randomly selected partners each time this page is displayed (refresh this page to see it in action):
How does it work?
Each participating organization creates campaigns that promote its initiatives. A campaign consists of a vertical and a horizontal banner, and a URL, to which visitors are directed. This allows you to promote your projects, events, products and initiatives.
Each participating organization displays a vertical or a horizontal banner on its homepage to promote others. Every time your page loads, the banner dynamically displays one of the Aligned partners' campaigns: first, an organization is selected at random, then one of its campaigns is selected at random, and displayed in the banner. Here's an example of a vertical (sidebar) banner:
