Advert Placement Options


Who supplies the advertisement graphics?
We expect you to supply these to us in the appropriate size (either 468x60px or 280x250px).

How long with the adverts display for?
Initially, we ask you to commit to a 3 month time period for display of your adverts. We believe 3 months is a good amount of time to gauge the response to your advert.

Can I check my stats and click-throughs?
No, unfortunately we are unable to offer this feature currently. However, we recommend you design your adverts with a unique reference code to for customers to quote when they contact you as a result of seeing your advert on this website. For example, “Quote Ref PSHAMP” or something similar. This will help you determine the effectiveness of your advert.

How can i increase click-throughs from my advert?
Make your advert as applicable to your target audience as possible. Make it about them, rather than about you. Show how you can help them or solve a problem for them. Maybe intrigue them by asking a question, or offering a unique deal that has a time limit or that they can only get through this site (i.e. with a ref code).

How do i pay to have my advert displayed?
Once you’ve been in contact with us and we’re approved your advert, we will invoice you via PayPal. Even if you don’t have a PayPal account, you will still be able to pay with your credit or debit card.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at if you have any further questions.
