What are Text Adverts?

Not everyone is aware of what are text adverts? Text Adverts are a form of low cost advertising used by website owners to promote their website and services to a quality targeted audience.

Online advertising offers an outstanding opportunity to efficiently and effectively target your desired audience. Even a single impression allows for increased awareness and corporate image. Couple this impact with cost effective exposure rates, and there is a natural equation for success.

Text Adverts are a simple, polite, and inexpensive alternative to banners and other online advertising.

Text Adverts are inserted into the main pages of a website. Visitors will see a small text box with your link and text within. When a visitor clicks on your text advert link they will be taken directly to your specified web page.

Text Adverts provide all of the benefits of other forms of online advertising without the annoying downsides.

There has been a considerable amount of backlash by users as many online advertisers have resorted to more and more desperate attempts to capture user's attention. Pop-up ads, Pop-under ads, full-page ads. These are just a few examples of advertising that many users find to be intrusive. So much so that several companies have begun distributing software that lets users block all traditional forms of advertising.

Text Adverts, by comparison, are small, effective, and most importantly, respectful of users.

Text Adverts are very cost effective means of advertising. You can pay for a text advert by number of impressions, views or simply by a monthly fee. Paying by monthly fee can work out to be the most cost effective as you will only pay a small set fee irrespective of how many visitors you receive. The monthly fee remains the same whether you receive one hundred or one million visitors!

Paying for the text adverts can be done by cheque, bank transfer or most commonly by electronic transfer.

The one drawback to text adverts is that in order to avoid page clutter only a limited number of adverts will normally be made available per web page and there will only be a limited number of available web pages to advertise on. Text adverts are allowed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
