On top of page banners only, I guarantee a click-through ratio of at least 1%. So for each thousand impressions, if you don't get 10 clickthroughs, I'll give you extra impressions until you do. I reserve the right to cancel a campaign (and refund any unused money) at any time. I only accept campaigns that I think will do well.

Sponsor banners are interspersed with other banners (such as FlyCast banners) in such a way as to avoid banner overload. In addition, they are currently only shown to people who have logged into accounts on the site. This increases the quality of the clickthroughs. A typical sponsor banner will currently get about 300-500 impressions per day; thus, the monthly cost of running a sponsor banner will be about $270-$450. Banners can be set up to run more or less frequently than the standard.

Top of page banners get an additional text link that identifies that the banner is a sponsor as opposed to a traded banner. In addition, every time "Tooter" completes a promotion for a user, the completion notification email contains short ads for the sponsors, including a URL that they can click on. Such clickthroughs are counted as equivalent to clicks on the banners themselves.

Banners can also be targeted to particular demographics (at extra cost), and may be in any industry standard size. As you might imagine, visitors are very interested in building websites and making money on the net!

Terms are 50% in advance, 50% due 10 days after completion. Alternatively, if paid in advance, a 10% discount may be taken.

Sponsorship prices are firm and not negotiable. The fact is, I can trade unsponsored banners and generate traffic that will result in contributions, so it is pointless for me to accept a sponsorship that will generate less income. I have set my prices with that in mind.

You may also wish to buy impressions on this site via the FlyCast Network. Flycast will let you buy impressions on this and other related sites.
