Advertise on It's Better Handmade
« on: January 09, 2014, 04:24:42 PM »
I know a lot of our members advertised with us in the past on It's Better Handmade through Project Wonderful. We'll we closed our adbox with Project Wonderful and are handling the advertising direct on IBH.
You can read more here http://itsbetterhandmade.com/advertise/
Anyway, we decided that we wanted to offer some very affordable advertising for our Handmade Artists' friends, so we created a coupon of 50% off. So if you're interested in purchasing advertising on IBH, just click the link above and follow it to the payment page. You can set up a monthly ad or a recurring ad, that will continue until you cancel. All payments are handled through paypal.
The retail price on there now is $10.00 a month, which is about a 3rd of the going rate for a site like this for advertising. We've been doing some research on this and there are sites out there that have less traffic than us and get $30 a month. So, for now, we are going to keep the price low, but I do see the price going up in the future.
Anyway if you jump in now you can get an ad for 50% off of the $10 or $5 a month, which is really a great deal.
Once you set up your ad and go to checkout you'll see a place for a coupon code, enter handmadeartists, one word no spaces as the code. If you set it up as a subscription, you can lock in the $5.00 a month price forever.
Anyway IBH is able to stay free to our members through our sponsors, and we look forward to all of your support.
Thanks!!!

It will not accept https - you have to delete the "s" in your url. I just did it and it worked (after resizing my image and deleting the "s" ) and the numbers you see you have to add and enter the sum into the box :)


ETA: Mine is up and running!

It looks like you can go in at any time and edit your ad, so if you don't like it you can change it

Hmm....that's good, however the other 2 were 125x125 and it would not take them....maybe I have to work on a totally new one...the one that's up now is the one I really did not wish to have on there....go figure..... ;D ;D
