As the credit-crunch continues to bite us all, why not consider the merits of some perfectly-placed text advertising this New Year?
For that's what www.addiply.com offers you, the potential advertiser… the chance to place your product and brand in front of up to 60,000 Norwich City and Ipswich Town football supporters.
Because we know that in these hard economic times, every last penny that you spend on advertising needs to be accounted for – just what am I getting for my ad spend?
And this is what we deliver. Certainty in these uncertain times.
Place the ad for your business or service YOURSELF and cut out the cost of the middle man.
See for yourself where your text ad is going… and all in the knowledge that you will only ever pay for that ad when it is viewed by your target audience.
And because times are getting increasingly hard, we're keeping our prices as low as possible. So for just 25 pence you can get 1,000 text ad views here on MyFootballWriter.com/norwichcity.
And all in the busiest month of the football year, too. Transfer window month when everyone is popping in to see whether or not the Canaries have snapped up another player. Or, indeed, missed out on another player.
Addiply is the red box, two-thirds of the way down the home page. Says 'Advertise here…
The concept is very simple. All it does is allow you, the advertiser, to place a text ad yourself.
Just as you would place a postcard in the window of your local Post Office; or leave a business card in your local chip shop.
You know that's where your potential local customers are, so you place the advert yourself.
You don't need anyone else's help; no black box and magical, mathematical algorithm to throw your advert out across the worldwide web. This way you place you ad yourself.
That is all that Addiply does… allows you, the advertiser, to make a decision for yourself. You know exactly where it is going and who is seeing it… because you placed it yourself. And you can see it yourself. On Addiply.
And because we believe strongly that transparency and trust are going to be one of the keys to the future of the Internet, you can also see exactly what you are getting for your money – down to the nearest penny.
No tricks. No smokes and mirrors. In this current climate, you want to know exactly where your money is going. We give you that. That's part of the deal. See the numbers; view the traffic; get value for your money.
So, you run a small firm selling Norwich City T-shirts… simply place your ad where you know Norwich City fans can see it. Because as a Norwich City fan yourself, that's where you go for your Norwich City news and views. And that's where your customers are.
A Norwich taxi firm, a small Norfolk B&B, anyone and everyone with a Norfolk-based website… same logic applies. These are your customers. Spending up to seven minutes a visit reading about their favourite football club.
So to kick off 2009 and the January transfer window in style, we're offering 1,000-views for 25 pence. Sticking to our half-price sale. Pop the minimum of ?10 into our PayPal 'meter' and that will then guarantee your text ad 40,000 views.
And remember, because you're paying per view, you're only ever paying when your ad is actually seen.
And if anyone runs their own local – or niche – website and wants to try and attract niche or local advertising themselves with the help of Addiply – your very own, DIY advertising 'department' – simply drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
