Prior to the second quarter of 2018, Jodel relied entirely on investors who covered our expenses out of belief in our mission.
In January of 2019 we launched a second feature that is aimed at supporting Jodel financially. Our ultimate goal is to be self-sufficient and ensure the survival of Jodel for years to come!
Much like the Picture Feed feature, the Digital Ad Column is a non invasive advertising format in the feed made for our users. It’s simple and quick to use. With a few clicks you can have wider reach. This feature is designed mainly for our community for small scale advertisement. Your cat ran away? You give guitar lessons? You organize events for your student association? Or you are just looking for a great after-party with Jodelers from your area? The digital ad column is there to help you!
The feature allow you to rent the 5th post in the feed for a specific period. This post will then stay for the booked time at that specific position. The price is dependent on your engagement in the Jodel community.
Each post is a regular Jodel, so jodelers can vote and comment on it (commenting can be optionally disabled). Only difference: if you downvote it, the Jodel will disappear for you and will not become visible again.
If a promoted Jodel is against our Community Guidelines, we will block the post without reimbursement.
Please note: although we now have new channels for revenue that we DO NOT sell any personal user data of any kind!
