How hard have you tried to entice companies to sponsor Newgrounds? If I were a 30+ year old running an ad campaign for my company here's a few reasons why I wouldn't choose Newgrounds.
1. I couldn't find info about advertising on Newgrounds, such as how many unique visitors you get and the amount of time they spend on here. You need to create a seperate "corporate" page that shows Newgrounds is a serious business and it's not just about killing celebrities.
2. Newgrounds looks too dark and offensive, something that a teenager created and not a real "business" run by professionals. Granted, Newgrounds isn't suppose to be all happy and positive, but you've got to admit it doesn't look professionally done, polished if you will. You've got to protect their image.
Basically Newgounds has to look more like a business than one guys hobby. Just imagine a marketing director coming to Newgrounds and seeing on the front page a post about Dead Babies and how the creator destroyed a little kids sand castle and then broke her arm. Gee, sounds like a site I want to sponsor.
I'm not saying Newgrounds has to become more family like, but in order to entice big money you've got to appear that way. Perhaps the homepage could be toned down a bit and include a page containing info regarding how successful Newgrounds is, how the money for one commerical could be spent here for a whole month, etc. There isn't one bit of information on Newgrounds that makes me want to sponsor it. If there is it isn't easy to locate.
By the way, I'm still waiting for the updated Pico pics.
