Wye Valley & Forest of Dean Tourism has various different opportunities to advertise to visitors on our main website. Type A adverts are on the Home Page. Types C and D will appear on all interior category pages. Members are invited to take any of these advert spaces, details listed below. Non-members may also advertise although the rates are higher. In addition, we welcome applications from tourism-related businesses within our area to become a member of the Association where they can advertise their business and services on the member website (business to business).
Type A – Near the top right side of the Home Page, a maximum of 20 vertically scrolling adverts, randomly selected to show and scroll in pairs, being visible for about 8 seconds. If an advert is clicked the user is taken to a URL defined by the advertiser. This is usually the advertiser’s own website, rather than their page on our site.
Type C – These adverts appear at the top of Category (eg Accommodation) and Sub-Category Pages (eg Bed & Breakfast). In general these adverts are reserved for gold listings as part of their membership benefits and adverts appear in the relevant category, thus adverts for self-catering accommodation will only appear on the self-catering page. We have a advert design service available if needed, for small charge – see below.
It is also possible members with gold listings to buy an advert to be placed in any category. As an example a cycle or canoe activity might wish to place an advert that appears on the camping page.
Type D – There will be a maximum of 30 adverts, displayed at the foot of each Category and Sub-Category Page throughout the site in 2 slots, randomly rotating.
All adverts are bookable for 12 month periods (not a calendar year) and may be scheduled to start on a specific date. We may be able to accept an advert for part of the year – discuss your requirements with us.
- Type A – £150
- Type C – Only available for members with Gold listings. An advert placed in the member’s relevant category is free. An advert may be placed in any category for £100
- Type D – £75
Adverts placed by non-members are subject to an additional fee of £100.
All fees are subject to VAT at the standard rate.
We will only accept adverts that are compatible with the ethos and design of our website. There is a small design charge of £30 + VAT for new adverts. Alternatively, advertisers may supply their own artwork to our specification. Advertisers may change their advert design up to 4 times in the 12 month period to accommodate seasonal changes but there will be additional fee of £30 + VAT if we re-design the advert.
