What makes advertising on The Whistle Post better than elsewhere?
When you advertise on our site, you are not limited to only a single advertisement for your business.
You are buying a spot in the rotation of ads. This is an important difference than just having one banner ad on the site!
Let's say you want to advertise 3 different products, a diesel on sale, a DCC system on sale, and some scenery products on sale.
Send us 3 different banners, one for each! The first time we will display the diesel banner, the second time we'll display the
DCC banner, and the third time we'll display the Scenery banner!
With a magazine, you get ONE advertisement and you hope it works out. Not here! You get a spot in the ad rotation and if the first banner
doesn't make the customer visit your site, maybe your 2nd, 3rd, 4th banner will!
While it is tempting to put your hobby shop or web address on each and every banner, people viewing your ad may actually click it more often if you just mention a product and a sales price. Contact us for more marketing ideas for your banners.
How is my ad doing?
We send out weekly reports that show you how many times your ads were shown and how many clicks your ads have received so that you can fine tune your marketing efforts. We can also provide you with a username and password so that you can log in and change your banner ads anytime 24/7. We will also gladly help you make changes to your advertising plan on TWP at anytime. Just ask!
Reach thousands of unique visitors each month!!
We currently offer flat rate advertising. A lot of advertisers find this method to be effective because your banner can be shown in a specific forum, on the main index, or wherever you wish. We also offer static text link advertising on our main forum index and our home page.
Here are the current Monthly flat-rates for Banners, Static Text Links, and Buttons, as well as value packs.
