What is a Banner Exchange?
A banner exchange is a network of web sites that exchange advertisment banners with each other.

Each member web site displays another member's banner.

By displaying these ads on their site, banner exchange members generate free advertising for their own sites.

How does a Banner Exchange work?
When you display member's banners on your site, you earn credits. These credits are redeemed to display your banner on other member's sites.

How long does it take to set up an account?
Accounts can be set up in seconds! Click the Sign Up link to the left and sign up for an account. Once you have signed up, you begin earning credits immediately, but the Exchange Administrators must first validate your account before you can begin redeeming credits.
[Top]

How do I earn credits?
Credits are earned by diplaying member banners on your own site. Once you have created an account and logged into your Control Panel, you will have an option to Get HTML. Use this option to get the code you need to put in your web page in order to start earning credits.

What is an exchange ratio?
An exchange ratio describes how many banner impressions you need to have in order to get your banner displayed on the network.

Our exchange normally runs a 3:2 ratio.

This means that for every three (3) banners you display on your site, your banner will be displayed twice (2) on the network.

Click rewards and credits that are purchased will increase this ratio on your account.
[Top]

What is a Click-through ratio?
This ratio is the number of times visitors click on your banner in relation to the number of times the banner is displayed. If visitors click your banner once for every 100 impressions, it has a 1% click through ratio.
[Top]

How do categories work?
Categories are a great way to insure visitors on your site get banners that are appropriate for the content. Each account can define one category that best describes the site's content.

You can also select which category to display on your own site.
[Top]

Why do I have to wait for my banner to be approved?
We manually review each site that gets submitted to the network. This guarantees that all sites in the exchange comply with our terms.

I lost my password, what can I do?
Use the Lost Password? link to recover your password.
[Top]

How do I maximise my credits?
You should add the HTML code to every page on your site. This way, no matter how your visitors enter or navigate your site, banners will always be shown and you will always get your credit.
[Top]

What size banners do you support?
We support standard 468 X 60 banner images. The images should be jpg (jpeg) orgif, and must ideally be smaller than 20Kbytes.
[Top]

How do I create a banner?
A banner is simply an image. You may use any art or graphics program to create your banner. Save your banner as jpg or gif onto your own server, and type in the web address (URL) for the banner when you sign up. Remember to make your banner 468 pixels wide and 60 pixels high.
[Top]

How do I prevent displaying my competitors on my site?
You may display certain categories only by following the instructions on the page that provides your HTML code. This will prevent all the categories from being displayed on your site. If you are a programmer or advanced webmaster, you may choose to rotate categories by using your own javascript or server script to rotate the category numbers.
[Top]

How do I add a banner that is not jpg or gif?
If you would like to add a banner but our system is refusing to accept it, such as when you track your own banner performance using your own URL directs, then you will have a problem adding the banner. Please type in your banner URL and end it with the extension .gif Next you can email us so that we may correct the URL by removing the .gif extension. This is an anti-spam precaution.
[Top]

How do I improve my click through rate (CTR)?
The idea with banner advertising is to create enough interest by means of curiosity, incentives or good old fashion discounts, so that visitors click on it.

From our experience, the banners that receive the most clicks are those that directly offer products or services on the banner itself, not just a company name.

Do not display contact details - such as your phone number or email address - on the banner. This prevents our system logging the correct number of leads because users will tend to contact you directly rather than visit your site.

Your account allows for up to 5 different banners. We recommend that you add different banners to your account. Track which banner performs the best and remove the banners which are not performing.
[Top]

Can I buy credits?
You can top up your account with credits. Please log into your account and select the purchase credits option. If the option is disabled, please contact us at sales@advertiseforfree.co.za for more information.
[Top]

Can I add affiliate banners under my account?
You may add affiliate banners to your account as long as they fall within our terms.

Your accounts needs to be able to accumulate credits and this would mean that you have to add the HTML code to your site in order for the affiliate banners to display on the network.
[Top]

What are click rewards?
Click rewards are issued for the number of unique clicks that your site generates. These rewards are then moved to your credit account - and these credits are redeemed for banner impressions. Click rewards are not automatically used but filter through to the credit account.
[Top]

Can I request a list of the sites I advertise on?
No. We cannot determine which sites your banner will appear on. The banners are displayed across the entire network at random. You can limit the category of sites your advert appears in by specifying this within your control panel. You may also limit the type of adverts your site displays by selecting the category you appear in. You may request to remove any undesirable site by emailing us.
