How to Advertise

Events

Events advertising is free of charge and you can advertise as many events as you like.
Each county has it's own events ad server which is accessed from any of the town pages.
Just click on the "Add Your Event" link in the bottom right hand corner under Useful Links.
Events adverts are automatically added to our county blog pages as well.

You must provide contact details to verify your ad and the end time and date of your event.

Food & Drink

There are a limited number of advertising spaces under each town page.
Any restaurant, public house, cafe, take away, tea shop or similar can advertise here.

All Other Advertising

Picture and text adverts are shown in many different sections on the Bookmark-Local website.
All of these adverts are pay-per-click meaning you only pay when you get a visitor to your website.
You decide how much each visitor is worth to you and set that amount as the maximum you will pay.
You also set the maximum amount you are willing to spend each day on advertising.
You can select which sections of the Bookmark-Local website you wish to appear in.
You have the choice of supplying key words to appear more in relevant searches.
You can have a plain text advert or have a picture & text advert at no extra cost.
Pictures must be 112 pixels wide x 84 pixels high.
