How to advertise here?
About this web site:
This web site has been online since early 1998, it attracted over 170,000 unique visitors since then. Until November 2005 this site was hosted on a free server (very slow and plagued with unwanted banners). In November 2005 it has been move to this excellent server. We now have to pay to keep the site online but it worth the money. As the site was moving to a better server, it underwent a complete transformation, we got rid of the amateur look for a more serious looking website design. Updates became more frequent and more sections have been added. Despite the move, the traffic did not go down. Most people who link to us updated their site and the old site is still online to redirect the lost souls here. Search engines are also starting to notice the move, we already come up in the top-10 on MSN search for some popular queries. We used to be in the top 10 in Google.com for "Guns N' Roses"; Google is a little bit slow to follow our recent move but it is our intention to get up there again! We expect our traffic to keep growing in the future.
We spend a lot of time and effort trying to increase our already important traffic, we try to get people to link to us and pay some sites to advertise the website. The latest statistics for December 2005 show that we have between 50 and 120 visitors per day, the average visitor visits at least 3 pages of the site and many stay on the site for more than 30 minutes and 1 hour. December numbers are above November stats. Always progressing is our goal! We had much higher traffic for a while before the move and we want to get back to these numbers and even beat them. I also want to mention that the Guns N' Roses world is pretty quiet right now. Anytime there is a big Guns N' Roses news, our traffic can be multiplied by 10 easily! But GNR will always remain a classic band so steady traffic is assured.
Who should advertise here?
This site is about a rock band (Guns N' Roses) so anything related to music is relevant, we also have some similar sites about blues artists such as Tracy Conover and Roy Buchanan, all these sites are linked to each other. We already have advertisers selling concert tickets for some time now. In addition to concert tickets, we think that we would be a great place to advertise music shirts/posters. Importantly, even if it's not related to the site, anything of general interest might interest our visitors (cheap hotels/flights, online games, etc.).
How much to advertise here?
The price will depend upon various things, but we can work out a deal with anyone! Of course a gigantic picture ad on the home page will be expensive but a smaller one will be cheaper. If you want to go away from the main page, it will be even cheaper, but less people will see it. We are confident to be able to help anyone. If you require us to modify your advertisment several times a year, it could make it a little more expensive. So as you can see, it really depends. Simply email me and tell me what you have in mind and I will give you a price. 1 year contracts are prefered but other arrangements are possible. Also if you advertise here, you deal directly with me, its easy to modify your ad at any time, you're not dealing with a huge company, we're flexible!
Is it worth it advertising on your website?
Nobody ever advertised here and left. All the companies currently advertising on the website, are new or returning advertisers, there's no others, so assume they are satisfied. I also want to mention that advertising is not only about how many people click on your ad, exposure is important as well, especially for google. Many sites liking to your website = a higher google ranking. So you don't only get customers, you also get exposure and higher ranking in google search results.
