Banner & Button Advertising Options

We have now implemented banner and button advertising on all pages of Gofarmer.com. The money raised from this advertising will be put back into further promotion for Gofarmer. 

We have researched the prices other companies are charging and have kept our prices very low in comparison. Other companies charge between £25 and £50 a week for the 'bottom' banner position and your banner rotates with unlimited other banners. Some charge up to £20 per 1000 impressions. Often no stats are provided so you can not really judge how effective the advertising is. We have been quoted over £700 a month for banners similar to the large vertical banner for sites with similar traffic. We wanted to keep prices reasonable and allow advertisers to test out the options and see what works without spending a fortune. All our banner advertising packages come with full stats and each advertiser gets their own admin area. On top that every advertising package also includes newsletter advertising to all our members and advertising on our Blog and on our Forum under the sponsors section.

On average the Gofarmer site receives over 200,000 hits a month, with around 5,000 to 10,000 unique visitors each month so your banner or button will be seen by a lot of people. On average the button ads and vertical banner are receiving at least 5000 impressions a week and bottom banner ads around 1,500. 

There are 3 options for this advertising and we can design simple banners for you to use (you will own the copyright to these) or you can supply your own:

Vertical Banner On Left Hand Side

This is the large banner on the left under the categories. It is 125 pixels wide and 400 pixels long. If you order this, your banner will be displayed permanently on every page in the Gofarmer website for however long you choose to advertise with us. This banner is NOT on rotation with any others. You will be provided with access to your own advertiser's admin area where you can see how many impressions and click-throughs your banner has received. 

In addition to this, you will receive:

  •  A 468 x 60 banner or a text ad at the top of the monthly newsletter to all Gofarmer members (currently around 700) for each month you buy the vertical banner. 

  • A 468 x 60 banner in the footer of the Forum and a link and long description (20 lines plus picture) of your business or product in the Forum under the Sponsors Section. This will be made an 'announcement' for the period of your advertising and so be at the top of the section. If you decide to stop advertising, this will become a normal post in the Sponsor's section and move down the page as new advertiser's are posted. But your description will always remain on the forum. 

  • Your vertical banner will also be on the Blog and you will be able to provide a full feature on your business or product for publication on the Blog (which will be archived and so remain accessible always). Blog features are syndicated to the members area of the main site and also on the front page.
