Advertising Opportunities

Please note that graphic design for any ads placed on TBW is available at a nominal fee. Contact Crystal for more information.

Spotlight on… Homepage
This one-week spotlight includes a picture and brief blurb on the homepage, with a link to a full article about the business. During the week the vendor is featured, registered TBW members can ask questions and the vendor may respond to them in as much detail as they like without the restrictions on hyping products that apply in other forums. Vendors will also be promoted via TBW Facebook and Twitter pages.

After the one-week run the forum thread will be closed, but will be remain accessible in an archive. We will accept bookings up to three months in advance with payment due before the vendor interview commences.

Cost: $100 for the one-week run and permanent archive.

Creative Details: Up to four images no greater in height or width than 200 pixels; vendors may provide as much text as will fit into a single post. TBW may edit the piece to fit if necessary.
