Hey guys I would like to officially announce a sponsor for my content.  So if you want to help me out, this will only take a "tad" bit of your time ;)

I will continue to make more content for NG and  YouTube, so don't worry about that. The next episode of Four Swords Misadventures should be ready sometime this month.  I'll keep you guys informed. 

In the mean time, help me out by supporting me on Tad: click here for more details.

Tad is the easiest way to support creators you love. Support them by watching a few, high quality ads.
-All ads on Tad are curated by actual humans, no crappy ads
-You pick the type of ads you want to see (movies vs. food)
-You can give feedback on the good ads, skip the bad ones
-This ad experience means you’ll watch way fewer ads and creators will get way more $, starting at $0.03 a view

Note: The current version of the app is available in most countries, but obviously, not all. Tad is currently working on expanding its services in other countries.

 

Here's a quick FAQ to help clear things up

What is Tad?

Tad is a new way to support content creators on Youtube. Instead of donating cash, Tad allows your fans to donate time (something they likely have more of than cash!).Tad is an app that lets your fans choose to watch a few high quality, high value, video ads on your behalf.


What am I asking my viewers to do?
If you become a Tad creator, you'll ask your fans to support you by watching one or two video ads in a new mobile app called Tad (iOS and Android). Fans will watch video ads within the mobile app on your behalf. This current version of Tad is just a prototype app to get a feel of the flow - the fully redesigned version is in development.
 

Wait, did you say I'm asking my viewers to watch ads?
Yes. Based on what we've seen, viewers want to support the creators they care about. Some viewers are willing to donate cash (Patreon, tip jars), but many more are willing to watch ads on a creator's behalf.
The way we've structured ads in Tad - easy to use, viewer chooses ad category, gives feedback on ads - is more valuable to advertisers, which means we can send more money to creators and viewers need to watch far fewer ads overall. It's definitely a new approach to ads, which is why having the right creators partnering with Tad is so important to us.


What do I need to do to promote Tad and receive payments?
First of all, you don't need to do much to get started with Tad. We'll give you a Tad URL that will allow your viewers to download Tad and begin watching ads your behalf. You can stick the Tad URL in the description of videos just to get a sense of how many people begin using it. We'll let you know how many people are watching ads for you. We'll also send you weekly ad payments via PayPal or another method you'd like.

That's all for now and be on the lookout for more!

Tad sounds int resting. Are you earning?

(Updated ) HadoukenDude responds:

I've only just begun with it so it will take some time to earn cash therefore I need to promote it more of course. which is why I chose to plug it here to see if it sparks any interest.

Feel free to contact them if you have any questions.

Update 23/03: yes, it works! if you are able to convince more viewers to watch ads, you earn more money.

Bah.. I wished I could just download the app without entering a cell number.

(Updated ) HadoukenDude responds:

That link will simply send you a text message to your smartphone with a link to the app. alternatively, you can search for it through the play store or app store, depending on what kind of phone you have.

Note: The service is currently for mobile devices. (iOS and Android)

After Episode 10 will you work on Harvest Mooned Volume 2?

HadoukenDude responds:

if there's more interest in it, we'll see. there are some sketches that have been discussed but we haven't gotten around to making them.

Have you heard how Nintendo took down Mark Haynes's (a.k.a. Alvin Earthworm) Super Mario Bros. Z Patreon site with a DMCA request? One can only wonder if or when this will have an effect on your work or how it gets funded…

(Updated ) HadoukenDude responds:

I am concerned about it too, though I'm offering other content on my patreon page and not just Four swords. To be fair, SMBZ is much more popular than my work, so it became an easier target.

Nothing against it. I like SMBZ too.
