We offer both FREE and Commercial advertising and marketing space on this site
We work hard to drive relevant traffic to our site, and we strive to be informative, interesting and entertaining for our visitors. Hence, promotions and adverts on our site are much more likely to be read – and clicked! – than on more-passive sites. We promote our site and its content using Social Media, Paid Advertising, Email Marketing, SEO and Partnership Marketing.
And, we think our commercial options are very affordable. Why not try us?
There are a number of ways to use our site for marketing, and we are flexible and happy to consider suggestions.
1. Directory “Featured Cafe” Advertising
Cafes and Coffee Shops in our Cafe Directory are able to buy advertising impressions on the Cafe Directory Page. We usually sell these in blocks of 50 impressions.
2. Priority Listing
If your cafe or coffee shop is listed in our Cafe Directory you may prefer that your cafe appears toward the top of the listing for your County. We offer Priority Listing for a small annual charge.
With your input, we write an article for our main blog page (e.g. a Cafe Review), and this is promoted on the site. The advertorial links to your own web page. So, if you have a cafe on the edge of cliff, if you sell special coffee, have regional speciality food, or perhaps your location has some historical importance, we are happy to let our readership know. All articles are included in our Monthly Newsletter that is mailed to subscribers. Note that we seek to validate all information so that our site remains honest, open and truthful.
4. Banner Advertising
Our main adverts types are placed at the top of most pages. We can accommodate adverts up to 1000px wide, or multiple smaller adverts.
5. Sidebar Advertising
These are adverts positioned towards the top of the right sidebar and are usually 400x100px. This is the premium ad position. We also offer 400x50px options.
6. In-article Advertising
We are able to place adverts within the content of articles. These are usually between 100 to 150px wide (and height) and will be clearly marked as adverts, so as not to run the danger of misleading anyone.
Important Note to Advertisers
All paid links from this site are marked up as “nofollow”, so that we do not pass PageRank to the linked sites. This is best practice, and necessary so as to not violate Google’s search policies. To be clear, we will not accept advertising that may artificially influence Page Ranking of other sites.
How do I proceed?
We don’t list our marketing prices here as they are scaled depending upon requirements, duration, and other factor. But we always want to give great value, so get in touch for a friendly conversation about what you are looking for.
