Advertising on HypnoThoughts.com
HypnoThoughts.com currently has over 9,000 members worldwide on every populated continent (sorry Antarctica, thirteen scientists don’t count). Around 1,700 people visit the site every day and spend an average of over 5 minutes on the site per visit. Every month we get about 30,000 unique visitors to HypnoThoughts.com.
This is a great opportunity to market products, services, seminars, websites, or any hypnosis related information to this group. It’s also very different from a yahoo group or PRweb type advertisement because ads on HypnoThoughts will remain visible for a full month’s time. Additionally, advertisements will be submitted in the form of a JPG (picture) file, which means you can really flex your creative muscles to get people’s attention.
In keeping with the idea of community, I want to open up this opportunity to the members to market to each other in an organized way. I have spent a lot of time thinking about how to make use of this while maintaining site integrity. I want people to understand who is advertising to them, and what they have to offer. It’s for that reason that I am restricting advertising to active members only. That way when they see an ad, they can visit your HypnoThoughts page and read your contributions to the site.
- Ads are 160 pixels wide and 260 pixels high.
- JPG files are preferred. No animated Gif files allowed.
- Ads are displayed 3 at a time on the right side of every page.
- The ads are rotated at random by a computer program. We don't control which ad shows up at any given time or on any page.
- Rates for each ad is $100 per ad per month and must be paid in advance.
- Any individual can have up to 2 different ads running at a time.
- You must be an active member of the site who actually contributes content to advertise on the site.
- If you can't design your own ad, we will make you one for $75
- Payment can be made by clicking on the "donate" button at the bottom of every page on the site.
- Contact Scott Sandland to set things up or ask any questions.
Below are the formal rules for advertisers that you must be aware of and comply with. I have spent a considerable amount of time on this and feel these are fair and logical.
1. Advertising on HypnoThoughts.com will be for hypnosis related content only.
2. Advertising may only be done by active members who have contributed at least two items of intellectual value in the last month.
3. The charge for this advertising may change based on feedback and web traffic.
4. Scott Sandland reserves the right to refuse advertising to anyone for any reason.
5. Advertising privileges may be taken away or suspended for any reason and at any time, even during the course of an advertising cycle.
6. All material and their advertisements must demonstrate respect to the audience and be safe for work. No offensive material will be tolerated.
7. There will be no more than three (3) advertisements visible on the site at any given time.
8. Advertising must be approved of and paid for in advance.
9. After any month of advertising you purchase, the next person in line will automatically take your place (Exceptions can be made in advance for events, contact me for details).
