How to advertise
If you’re not too late, the best option is our Early Bird Offer. Other options are available below (Options 1, 2 & 3).
Early Bird Offer – Create your account, it’s really easy!
Be one of the first 100 business to create an account and you will qualify for our ‘Early Bird Discount’
It’s so easy that all we need is your email address! Click here to see the full details and click here to set up an account and click here if you’ve already got an account but not taken up our offer. As soon as you register you can immediately start listing your business and stock/services etc.
Month 1. – FREE
From the minute you create your account, you can list as much as you like, completely free. No strings attached. All listings will remain online for 30 days from the day they go live on our site. You will receive a confirmation email every time your listing(s) goes live.
Also, on day 1, your first listing will go live for 30 days. On day 30, you last listing will go live for 30 days, so you’re effectively getting 60 days of FREE advertising!
Month 2. – 50% Discount
31 days after your first listing goes live, any more listings added by your business will be discounted by 50%. So our standard listing fee of £10 per listing is discounted to £5 per listing. No limit on the number of listings you can submit.
Month 3. – 25% Discount
31 days after the start of month 2, any more listings added by your business will be discounted by 25%. So our standard listing fee of £10 per listing is discounted to £7.50. No limit on the number of listings you can submit.
Month 4. – Standard Rate
31 days after the start of month 3, any more listings added by your business will be at our standard listing fee of £10 per listing. No limit on the number of listings you can submit.
However, once your Early Bird Offer expires, if you see yourself submitting more than 8 listings during any 30 day period, it could be more economical for you to look at these options:
For a fixed rate of £85 per month, you can submit up to 10 listings per month, that’s 15% discount
For a fixed rate of £160 per month, you can submit up to 20 listings per month, that’s 20% discount
Unlimited listings. For a fixed rate of £185 per month, you can submit an unlimited number of listings per month. PLUS, if you select this option, all your listings will be flagged up as a ‘Featured Dealer’which distinguishes your listings from others. We may, if and when appropriate ask you for comments etc for our editorial team and we will feature any press releases you send us, if the content is appropriate to the site.
For example, option 2 at £160 per month for 20 listings works out at £8 per listing. By choosing this option, if you submit 24 listing per month, that works out at £7.70 per listing and it gets cheaper per listing if you add more than 24 per month.
So, why pay £200 for an advert the size of a matchbox in a monthly magazine, when you can have an unlimited number of full page adverts on out site for £185? CREATE YOU ACCOUNT NOW AND STOP GETTING LOST IN THE CROWD, WE’LL MAKE SURE YOU STAND OUT.
A ‘listing’ is the same as a display advert in a magazine. The top of the screen displays any images you’ve uploaded. It looks like this (click on images below to see full size).
Above is an image of the top part of a screen showing a listing and below is the rest of the screen.
So you’re getting way more ‘real estate’ per £ than in a magazine.
