Three Ways To Advertise On GayCityUSA.com
1. FREE Banner/Link Exchange: LGBT oriented sites only, please!! - Here's how it works: you place one of my banners and/or our text link on your site in exchange for me placing one of your banners and/or your text link on GayCityUSA.com
Banner size: The banner size and placement should be similar for each of us for a win-win situation. Send me your banners and I will pick the one I like first. Then I will send you ours in a similar size for you to place. Once you've placed it, you'll notify me to let me know the url address. I will then place your banner ad on my site in an appropriate and/or similar placement and/or page within the site and email you with the url.
Text Links: Text link submissions should include site name, url, description and category. Placement will be depend upon category, popularity, and reciprocal placement.
Here is our text link: www.GayCityUSA.com - Search the 'gay way' with this LGBT search engine and link directory! (Category: directories, search engines, internet, resources, organizations, information, portals, online communities)
Note: If your site is more of a regional site than a category site, then send the location such as city, state or country that your site serves.
Summary: If you place my ad in a very noticeable spot such as your homepage or on or near the top of your links page, then your ad has a greater chance of being placed in a more noticeable spot also.
2. Affiliate Program: If your company has an affiliate program, you may send me an invitation to join your affiliate program along with the proper url so that I may sign up to it and receive commissions from the sales and/or referrals. Send invites to: MisterMayor@GayCityUSA.com
3. Pay to Advertise: If your site or your ad is not LGBT related/oriented and/or you do not want to do a banner/text exchange and you don't have an affiliate program, you may opt to pay for advertising, if your ad is acceptable.*(see below.)
