Premium Exposure Button Advertising
Be Seen Online by Thousands of People Each Month
- Button Advertisements enable your business to achieve additional high profile exposure on BlueMountainsAustralia.com.
- Button Advertising places your business in front of visitors to the website keeping your business top-of-mind.
- When opting for a Button Advertisement your new advertisement is assigned to either a ‘Specific Page’ or a ‘Featured Section’ of the BlueMountainsAustralia.com website.
- There is a maximum of 5 Button Advertisers assigned to any nominated ‘Specific Page’ or ‘Featured Section’.
‘Featured Section’ Examples
- News (entire section)
- What’s On (entire section)
‘Specific Page’ Examples
- Home Page
- General Information Pages (e.g. The Three Sisters page)
- Directory Menu Page (e.g. Accommodation directory menu page)
- Directory Listing Page (e.g. Restaurants or Plumbers)
When visitors browse the website on a PC or tablet your Button Advertisement appears at the top of the ‘Specific Page’ or ‘Featured Section’. When a visitor to the website scrolls down the page, your Button Advertisement becomes permanently fixed to the top of the page in a Menu Bar which is always visible.
Bonus Random Exposure
- The majority of pages throughout the site include Button Advertisements.
- All Button Advertisers receive additional Random Exposure on pages throughout BlueMountainsAustralia.com which have less than 5 assigned advertisers, thus ensuring 5 Button Advertisers are always displayed.
‘Have You Visited’
At the footer of all pages throughout the site, on both the full website and mobile website, all Button Advertisers randomly appear within the “Have You Visited” section. This displays more like information features rather than advertisements. In most instances businesses with Button Advertisements attract the largest number of views and direct click-throughs from the random exposure of their advertisement appearing in the “Have You Visited” section.
On the mobile website, (which is limited in space), you have a 1 in 5 chance of appearing at the top of the ‘Specific Page’ or ‘Featured Section’.
If your advertisement is not randomly selected to appear at the top of the page, of the four remaining advertisers assigned you have a 3 in 4 chance of appearing at the bottom of the mobile ‘Specific Page’ or ‘Featured Section’.
As such, each time your assigned ‘Specific Page’ or ‘Featured Section’ is viewed by a visitor you have a 4 in 5 chance of your Button Advertisement appearing.
In addition to your assigned position, your business also has a random chance of appearing at the top (or within the footer) of all other pages throughout the mobile website which do not have any assigned Button Advertisements.
Button Advertisements Content
- Button Advertisements can either be a single image or consist of two separate frames presenting a single image per frame. Frames fade from one frame to the other at an interval of approximately 3 seconds.
- Text appears below the image frames promoting your choice of either your business name, or the product or service you wish to promote.
- There is also a short catch phrase associated with your Button Advertisement. This text is displayed:
- when a visitor hovers over your Button Advertisement
- next to your Button Advertisement image within ‘Have You Visited’ in the footer.
