Local Business

If you’re a business local to the Thornhams then you might like to consider advertising with us. It’s very inexpensive, can be very effective and extends the traditional and much favoured "word of mouth" approach to promoting yourselves. We aim to promote local business and we’re not trying to make money – our goal is simply to cover our hosting and registration costs so you’re unlikely to find a cheaper way of advertising. This is how it works…

At the bottom of each page on our site is an advertising banner. Banners are simply static images of a fixed size that are displayed at the foot of every page. Every time one of our pages is requested from our website, a banner is randomly selected from the available selection and displayed. This is called an impression. Local businesses buy blocks of impressions – let’s say 1000 – and then every time their banner is displayed their block of remaining impressions is reduced by 1. If a user clicks on your banner they are redirected to your website. If you don’t have a website, we can create you a static page on our site displaying the key features / services / contacts related to your business. It’s as simple as that. We’ll also list you in our business directory as part of the deal. If you provide a good service, you’ll likely find yourself getting free recommendations from our community members (in our forums and other areas too) so it works to everybody’s advantage.

It’s a very simple and very effective solution to promoting your business so why not get in touch  and give it a try.
