Consider your deskto a miniature billboard - and billboards charge money.

So can we.

So, I typically bill $300 per add. I make a copy of the add. And I state that I expect payment in 30 days. And I state that I charge $100 per day late fees. Just for fun, I charge $5 for removal of the add.

Either way, I've got them.

What a load of bullshit...
