Rates & Data

Magazine & Website Advertising Rates

 

There are various sizes of adverts available in the digital magazine and/or website, see below. These sizes are based on our original printed A4 magazine, and website adverts are displayed similar in size to magazine adverts (based on a typical sized PC screen).

 

Magazine adverts are displayed randomly (or 'run of paper') unless special positions are booked. See details of Special Positions below. The digital magazine can be searched by keywords to pick out the content of your advert, and you can embed flash files and video to bring your advert to life!

 

Website adverts are displayed under Market Sector categories. The website offers advertisers the ability to list their advert under the Market Sector category(s) that most closely matches their target customer types. (You can list under several categories if required). This enables agents to quickly focus in on the opportunities of relevance to them. And again you can add flash and video, just like in the magazine.

 

There are additional website advertising options available to companies who have a very broad target market, and to those that want an enhanced presence. See below: Website Special Positions.

 

 

 

Magazine Special Positions

 

As most agents browse through the magazine looking at all the opportunities, it is possible that there will be interruptions and distractions. Naturally most agents will read from the front to the back, and so the nearer your advert is to the front page - the better.

 

We offer the following special positions:

  • Front Page: 30% extra
  • Pages 2 to 5: 20% extra
  • Any other specified position: 10% extra

Please note these rates only apply to the costs of magazine advertising (not website).

 

 

Website Special Positions

 

Give your agency opportunity maximum visibility and impact using a Website Special Position advert. 'Web Banners' and 'Web Box' adverts occupy premium positions within the agency opportunities area of our busy website which is used by THOUSANDS of sales agents every month! Both will link to a main advert and give you the opportunity to stand out.

Adverts will be displayed at approximately these sizes when viewed on a 15inch screen.

 

 

If supplying your own artwork


Please note that we provide a FREE graphic design service. All you need to provide is the 'raw material' of the advert (eg. text, logos, pictures, videos*, flash files).

However, if supplying your own finished artwork please note the following:


Adverts must be supplied in editable pdf format with fonts embedded. They must also be supplied at the correct size (see above) with no bleed or crop marks.

 


If you are supplying video or flash files

 

Video and Flash files can be incorporated into your advert free of charge, and will of course enhance the impact of your advert, so please feel free to utilise this feature.

 

Video:

  • We can work with most files, but ideally we would like FLV or F4V files. Any other file type will be converted. (We will let you know if we experience problems with your file.)
  • YouTube videos can be streamed direct into editions, but the URL needs to point directly at the video.
  • There is no maximum length for videos, but we recommend that each video is less than 50 MB.


Flash:

  • We accept Flash files in AS 3.0. We will need .swf and .fla files supplied.
  • Please design your files so that a single .swf file is needed to play the animation, and not multiple .swfs and/or .as files
  • We do not support animations created using SWiSH
  • Please make sure there is no white space around the edge of the Flash animation
  • Please note that your animation will be sitting inside another Flash application and, as such, the background colour defined in the property inspector will turn transparent, showing the PDF content underneath your Flash files. To avoid this, put a single-colour object on the lowest layer of your Flash file to form a canvas.
  • Please set your Flash files to a frame rate of 24fps
  • Avoid any ActionScript that can affect the host application, such as _level0, _root, and _parent references, or global functions like setTimeinterval
  • There should be no links in the animation we are given, unless this is necessary, as these links will not be picked up in the statistics package. We will normally create the links overlaying the Flash content, so that they can be tracked
  • There is no file size limit on animations. However, for loading purposes, the files should be as small as possible
  • Images should be set to lossless compression instead of photo compression
  • Filenames for Flash animation files (SWFs) should not include special characters such as brackets, question marks, commas and spaces. Underscore characters are OK to use
    In case we need to edit your FLA file, please use one of the following options when dealing with fonts:
    • Add the font in the FLA library and then use the reference of the font in the scene and not the font directly
    • Provide the fonts along with the FLA file
    • Convert the fonts to vector shapes, so that there are no non-system fonts within the Flash file


A proof will be emailed to you for approval or amendment prior to publication. If advertising in the digital magazine a voucher copy will be sent to you in due course.
