We have developed this new sponsor section in the Cichlid Room Companion. With it we are looking for sponsors for the forum, specifically. What we offer our sponsors in return is a section here where they can have post their offers, sale lists, prices, polices, just about whatever they want to promote their business. The section in the forum can have sub forums, so they can have a sub forum for price lists, one for sales policies, one for special offers, etc. Nobody but sponsors (unless they require it otherwise) can post in those sections.
In addition to this, we offer the printing of banners in the forum pages, starting in with 36,000 banners a year for a small cost, those banners can be one or several, provided by the sponsor or one designed by the CRC for them. More banners can be added at any time. Banners behave like those in the Cichlid Room Companion pages, they each have a URL they direct to (this could be a post in a section in their own forum), they are geographically targeted (e.g. seeing just in the USA), they can have a day cap (e.g. a person just sees a certain number every day). More banners can be obtained in packages of 9,000.
I hope this new form of advertising can suit our sponsor’s needs and so we can work together on helping improve their sales. We are also open to suggestions on how to improve this section, if you are interested in being a forum sponsor, please send me a personal message and I will be back to you as soon as possible.
