Online Advertising Placement and Pricing
Quirks.com is the premier site for the market research industry, averaging more than 85,000 visitors per month and more than 250,000 page impressions. The extensive and high-quality resources attract users who conduct, coordinate and purchase marketing research. Banner and button advertising give you the opportunity to capitalize on that traffic and increase the frequency of messaging. By integrating Web advertising into your marketing or lead-generation campaign, you extend your brand exposure to a highly targeted audience of marketing research professionals.
Ad Types and Positions
Quirks.com offers several ad formats and numerous targeted page locations. Consult your regional Quirk’s sales representative for a complete list of online opportunities and specific audience counts and targeting.
Top/Bottom Banner Ad: This placement is available as a shared space on any Quirks. com Web page. Up to five advertisers rotate randomly between the top and bottom position on a page, displaying each banner ad to 40% of the viewing traffic (20% in the top position and 20% in the bottom position). Advertisers also have the option of buying additional views, if available.
Side Box Ad: Want a large, prominent ad but also want it to appear to 100% of all page visitors? A side box ad is the perfect option. Side ads randomly change position with each visit (or page refresh) but are always visible to every viewer of the page. Most pages have no more than four side ads, meaning you are in the top position 25% of the time.
Run-of-Site Top Button: Reach every visitor to Quirks.com with our run-of-site top button ad. This ad is located at the top-right of every page of quirks.com in order to give you complete site exposure. The ad position is available on a monthly basis. It is especially ideal for events, Webinars and other time-sensitive advertising.
Unique Page Placement
Home Page: With more than 25,000 views per month the Quirks.com home page is the most popular page on the site. In addition to top, bottom and side ads, the home page has middle advertising positions available.
Run of Directory or Run of Section: Advertising in Quirk’s different resource and directory sections is not limited to just a single page in the section. Ads now appear on all the main pages within the section - giving your message far more exposure. For example, an advertiser who purchases the panel directory will have their ad appear on the panel directory search page, the general directory search results page and even on the company details pages (including on competitor pages). The same is true for our other directories, articles, events, discussion forums, blogs and other sections of our site.
Niche Topic Pages: Let potential customers know you are a leader in a given niche by advertising in one of our new micro niche pages. When you run an ad in a given niche your ad will appear when a user searches our SourceBook directory of research companies for suppliers specializing in that specific topic. In addition, it will appear whenever a user conducts the same search in our article section. As an added bonus, your ad will appear on the related subtopic micro pages.
City, State and Country Directory Results Pages: In addition to the niche topic advertising positions, you now also have the option of advertising whenever a user searches our directories for a specific city, state or country. By geo-targeting your ad you reach a highly specified audience that is ready to purchase, at a fraction of broader advertising placements.
Additional Page placements are also available.
