Boardseeker Magazine offers ONE advertising package which
includes a Banner Advertisement including a Reader Interaction
Menu and smaller Scatter Adverts throughout the site. The
price of advertising is based upon the placement of your
Banner Advertisement within the magazine. Full details
are given below:
Boardseeker Magazine accepts adverts of one size.
Your advert may be a full animation FLASH banner,
an animated GIF or a static JPG. You can either supply
us with an advert of the required size (250x250 pixels
with maximum file size of 50Kb) or, for £95
(GBP), our designers will produce one for you.
Interaction Menu (below advert)
Before insertion within the magazine, your banner
advert will be equipped with an interactive menu
that will allow readers to:
- Download your product brochure
- Locate their nearest dealer/stockist
- View a movie commercial of your product
- Link to your website
The Interaction Menu is a standard feature of the advertising
package and will not incur any additional charge.
To ensure that you get a level of publicity on
every page of the magazine, we will include a version
of your banner to randomly appear within the pale
blue margin on the right hand side of the magazine.
These are known as ‘scatter adverts’.
Scatter Adverts are a standard feature of the advertising
package and will not incur any additional charge.
Instead of the traditional method of pricing by size,
the price of your advert is based upon placement within
the magazine. Positioning within the most popular pages
of the magazine commands the highest rates.
Your decision of which page/s to advertise within the
magazine will depend upon your budget and your product.
For example, a company selling coaching services may decide
that their advertising will be most effectively placed
within the technique section of the magazine.
Pricing of your advert is based upon placement within
the magazine and the number of insertions that you commit
to. There are a limited number of advertising spaces within
the magazine (to maximise the impact of advertising) and
therefore we cannot guarantee to be able to offer advertising
on all of the pages listed below. Advertising is sold on
a first come, first served basis.
* Please note that there is a MAXIMUM of two advert spaces
available on each of the pages listed above. All prices
