Front Page Display Advertisement
However, if you want to bring your business, product or service into prominent display to our 10000+ registered members we have just the right solutions for you. Take a look at our advertisement sections on the home page. It is divided into four sections: Header ad, Slide show box ad, Mid-page widget ad, and Article placement.
If you would like to advertise your business or service, these are the current rates for a 6-month and 12-month commitment.
1. Header ad section
Prominently located between Expats In Italy web site logo and its beautiful photographic design elements, this is one of the most eye-catching spots on the web site. Due to consideration for the overall design asthetics, we can only offer a very limited space. All designs must be approved and fit in with the overall web site design.
|Block size||Price (USD) per
|1/8 Block 150 x 50 pixels||20||15|
|1/4 Block 150 x 100 pixels||38||28|
|1/2 Block 150 x 200 pixels||70||60|
|Full Block 300 x 200 pixels||150||135|
2. Front page slide show box - the most prominent display ad space we offer, placed in the area with maximum visual attention for most visitors. This rotational display gives your business enough space to show both graphic and text and can link directly to your web page. The ads are randomized in order of appearance so every time a visitor loads the web page the order will be different (there are total of 12 randomized ads, and each has 1/4 (25%) chance to be displayed as top three and 1/12 (8.33%) chance to be the first one. However, we offer an option to make your ad top three placement in fixed position.
To get the guaranteed top three placement, you must submit your bid during the opening period. Two weeks prior to the expiration of the previous top three placement holder's contract, the spot will open up for bidding. No one, including the current place holder is guaranteed a spot unless their bid is the highest for its categroy. If you are the only bid at the end of the bidding period, you will be given that spot at the starting bid price.
For example, if there are three bids for the 3rd place placement, one for the starting price $80, the second $95, the third $100. The highest bidder will win the spot. If there are two bidders who have the same bid, then the starting bid shall increase by $2.50, until one bidder will offer a higher price than the others. In the rare event of continued parity (all bidders submitted the same amount, even after several automatic increase across the board), the first bidder will win the spot after the fourth increase.
|Appearance placement order||Price (USD) per
|Guaranteed 3rd place||80 (starting bid)||75|
|Guaranteed 2nd place||100 (starting bid)||90|
|Guaranteed 1st place||120 (starting bid)||110|
