3. Where Are The Ads Located?
- On the main network site - you see it now on that very page
- On card composition pages like this one
- On dynamically generated postcard pages. There are 4 types of them.
- In My Postcards News - a popular weekly email newsletter (78469 subscribers). Text ads there are typically very effective because of 1-2 weeks turnaround (sometimes it's being read later, more than once, forwarded to other people, etc.).
We can embed any types of ad material into those pages - banners of any size, interstitial, order forms, buttons, plain text links, etc.
Many network sites use Java applets on postcards - we can target Java-enabled banners for visitors who choose Java applets (type 1-3) (see an example of a Java-enabled card).
NOTICE: cards often are stored for future viewing (together with ads). Sometimes it brings visitors long after the ad campaign it finished (no we cannot bill you for that-:)
