What Are Your Advertising Options?

There are two main ways to advertise on the site:

1. Banner Ads

Banner ads are an excellent option because they ensure maximum coverage and brand exposure on the site. They appear on every page (except a few admin pages such as this one) ensuring that visitors will see your advert at least once if not multiple times.

You can find examples on this page of grey banner boxes showing ad sizes and their positions. The options are as follows:

  • 468 x 60 at the top of the page.
  • 160 x 600 in the right hand column.
  • 160 x 120 in the right hand column.
  • 160 x 240 in the right hand column.
  • 468 x 60 at the bottom of the page.

Banners are charged on a rolling monthly basis with payment collected via PayPal. A discount is available when purchasing six months in advance. Please contact us using the form below for a list of our current rates.

To proceed, all you'll need to do is provide us with your banner code, make payment and your banner will go live. We can also help you out if you need assistance producing a banner.

2. Guest Posts

Another great way to get exposure for your business and to engage with our visitors is by posting an original and informative article on the site.

By providing some specialist and useful information you can connect with readers and by including your business details and a link, they can get straight in touch if they like what they read.

Posts are reveiwed to maintain standards and if your submission is accepted it will receive the additional benefit of appearing on our RSS feed, facebook posts and twitter feed.

We charge a small fee for a 12 month post. Please contact us for details.

These are the two main advertising options available but if you have any other ideas, we are always happy to discuss them.
