Buy Banner or Text Ads
Show your support for and promote your scuba business by purchasing banner or text ads. Banner ads can be displayed on a CPM basis (cost per 1000 impressions), which means your ad is displayed 1000's of times for a very low cost. Text ads can be displayed on a pay-per-click basis, which means you only pay when a unique user clicks on your ad to visit your website.
"GeoTargeting" is also available and very popular if you own a local business such as a dive shop. Specify the states, cities or zip codes that you want your ad displayed in. Our ad manager checks the location of each visitor and only shows ads for that area. Banner ads are displayed 10 times per visitor per day, which increases the ads longevity and number of total unique viewers. At your request, additional display restrictions can be applied, such as overall total impressions per user, or a day/time schedule to follow. (For example: Banner will be shown a total of 100 times (no more than 10 per day) to each visitor from Houston, TX between the hours of 8am and 5pm on Thursday's and Friday's only. Now that's a targeted ad!)
