Advertise on PLANET-GROOVE
Why advertise on Planet-Groove?
We attract anywhere between 10 and 15 thousand visitors per month. Each visitor who sees your banner is a potential customer.
Our business plan and vision encompasses an almost exponential growth pattern. So as we grow, so does your business.
How much does all this cost?
Current rates for advertising are as follows:
- $1.00 per 1000 displays of your banner
- Minimum purchase: 50,000 banner displays (displays per day averages anywhere between 500 and 1000 per day -- more during events, releases, and shows)
Why use the "Cost per thousand" model of advertising?
Using the "Cost per thousand" model of advertising has several distinct advantages for companies, such as a lower investment rate (lower amounts out of pocket),
and more flexibility with your advertising dollar.
For the same price it would cost you to run one advertisement at a flat-rate, we can offer you multiple banners running concurrently.
What do I get for my money?
For every $1.00 (USD) you spend, you get:
Serving banners takes up bandwidth. A 15k banner, shown 1500 times per day could eat up over 600k in bandwidth per month. By allowing us to place your banner on our server, you gain don't have to pay for that bandwidth.
- One 468 pixel by 60 pixel banner rotating throughout the site, on every page(*)
- The ability to change out your banner periodically to promote specific sales and events you might be promoting
- Free banner hosting
Alternatively, if bandwidth isn't a problem for you, you can host it on your own server which would give you more flexibility with changing the banner out whenever you need to.
(*) Additional banners can be placed in concurrent rotation for the sum of $.50 per thousand displays. This is useful for our retailer customers who might have multiple products they would like to sell at the same time.
What format does my banner need to be?
- dimensions 468 pixels wide x 60 pixels high
- size no larger than 30k
- format .GIF, .JPG
- animation? GIF animation is fine as long as it doesn't exceed the 30k size limit
