Janice,

Could there be a *_Groups.io with ads option _*to eliminate or reduce
the cost for those needing that consideration?
What Donald and others have said.

Yahoo Groups did have discrete two-line text ads in the footers of email messages at one time. They gave up on that really early on because the few advertisers who they could convince to try them gave up on it. The problem with ads in email is that the advertiser can't track if you've seen the ad. Without knowing that, the ad isn't worth paying for.

The later failure of Yahoo Groups likely has many parts, but most assuredly one of them was that advertisers lost faith that their money spent would be effective. I agree with Mark about staying away from that treadmill / arms race.
