Details of advertising rates on this website.



Advertise on
Gerry Keane, proprietor of The Anchor in Birmingham, was the first person to advertise on this website - hence his colour advert [185 x 255 pixels] is featured to the far right of this page so that you can see the sort of advertisements on offer. This attractive advert conveys a simple but effective message, has combined photographs of Gerry's business and is linked directly to his website which opens in a new window. And that is essentially what is on offer to businesses - attractive colour adverts linked to other websites in order to drive traffic, improve visitor numbers and, hopefully, generate publicity and/or sales. If you have a pub, brewery or offer any services to the licensed trade this site is a great place to be seen.

Why advertise on
The unique selling point is traffic. This website got over 1.7 million hits in October 2009. Similar figures are achieved every single month and are continuing to increase. So, that's the hard sell over with - after all, the figures speak for themselves. Unlike many other websites nothing is hidden and visitor figures are displayed for statistical proof. These reports are generated by the site's ISP. Figure 1 [right] shows the Daily Usage for this website in October 2009.

How much does it cost to advertise on
The rates are realistic and therefore very reasonable. A standard wide banner [728 x 90 pixels], excluding the homepage, will cost £2 per month on a single page. For multiple pages - add 25p per month per page. For example 10 pages would be a total of £4.25 per month. An advert like the one to right [185 x 255 pixels], excluding the homepage, will cost £1 per month on a single page. For multiple pages - add 15p per month per page. For example 10 pages would be a total of £2.35 per month. So you see - it's very reasonable. The only caveat being that these rates are for advertisements that will appear for at least one calendar year and fees must be paid in advance.

Can I increase my presence on
You can take your advertising on the website much further. For example, it is possible to sponsor the website and have ads on every page. With this option your business can be featured and be visible on page entry for each and every page OR just particular sections of the site e.g. Worcestershire pages or Brewery pages. This is very high profile and a package can be tailored to your needs for a very reasonable tariff.
