Openness and transparency is in all our interests, and Ausdroid is no different.
Not many people understand how media businesses like ours make money, and the saying “if you’re not paying for a product, you are the product” is generally thought to be the case across the board. However, at least here, Ausdroid doesn’t sell your information or anything about you to make money. We make our money from advertising, sponsorship and commercial partnerships.
Further, the biggest events, announcements and conferences that affect mobile technology don’t happen in Australia; they happen in the US, in Asia, throughout Europe, and basically everywhere else. Ausdroid is regularly invited to attend these events, or to travel interstate or overseas for “media famils” (in other words, trips so we can become more familiar with a company, its products, or something its working on).
Sponsorship and Commercial Arrangements
Ausdroid has commercial agreements with the following organisations:
- Google Asia Pacific, advertising solutions.
- Ezoic, advertising solutions.
Ausdroid and its staff have produced content for Telstra and Finder in the past, but no current content arrangements are in place.
All sponsored posts are labelled as such. If there’s nothing labelling a story as a sponsored story, then it isn’t one, and we have no vested interests in the subject thereof.
