Polka Dot Creations sees roughly 10,000 unique visitors per month and 25,000 page views. The ads can be seen on the right-hand side of each page, many of them above the fold, in prime viewing real-estate.
You have two options for advertising:
#1: Sponsorships through Polka Dot Creations
These spots are available on a weekly or monthly basis, and are visible to all of the shop's worldwide visitors.
Upon receipt of payment, we will email you and ask for the following information (you can go ahead and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance, if you prefer):
- the name of your business
- the link to which you would like the ad to point
- your 125 x 125 pixel ad (.jpg or .png - no animated .gifs please), or a link to it - if you don't have an ad, and would like us to make you one, we'd be happy to do so for an extra $5
#2: Sponsorships through Project Wonderful
We've teamed up with Project Wonderful to offer the remaining spots.
Project Wonderful uses an auction model as well as geo-targeting. This means you can name your own price, as well as the regions of the world to which you would like to advertise. the current rate in your region for these two ad boxes is / day.
This price will fluctuate as more or less people become interested in the ad space.
Which Polka Dot Creations sponsorship option to choose?
Our direct ads can be more expensive, and your ad may rotate with others, if there is a demand for the space. The benefit, though, is that your ad is locked in and is guaranteed to run for the entire period you wish.
The Project Wonderful ads are not a sure thing, since you may be outbid at any time. However, you have the potential to get some really affordable advertising or to choose a very short term. Project Wonderful also offers you the ability to check your ad's performance statistics, which can be a valuable tool.
Whichever advertising option you choose, we sincerely thank you for sharing some of your budget with Polka Dot Creations.
Please be aware, we reserve the right to refuse any ad for any reason! However, if your ad is attractive, your product is of interest to polymer clay enthusiasts, and you are not in direct competition with Polka Dot Creations (i.e. you are not advertising products we also sell here) then we will most likely be happy to host your ad!
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
