Let's talk about...Banner Advertising

  • We'll try to detail a bit how banner advertising on Jasmine Directory works.
How banner advertising works on Jasmine Directory:

  1. What's the size of the banners you accept?
  2. We accept 125x125 banners. In exceptional cases, we can accept a 300x250 banner, too, but it's price will be double compared to a 125x125 banner.

  3. Where will my banners be displayed?
  4. We don't sell site-wide banners. Instead, we sell category based banners.

    For example, if you have a shopping related website, it is best for everybody to have your ad displayed on the Shopping and E-commerce category.

  5. Banner Place
  6. The banners will be placed after the first or second paragraph, of the left side category description. Here is an example.

  7. How many banners will you sell/category?
  8. In order to don't make our web directory look like a Christmas tree, we've decided to sell only 2 banner spots/category.

  9. Payment
  10. All payment will work on a PayPal subscription basis. You can cancel your subscription at any time.

  11. How do I order a banner spot?
  12. Just choose the banner spot you want, subscribe via PayPal, and follow the instructions after the subscription was created.

  13. How do I cancel my subscription?
  14. You can e-mail us, or go to your PayPal's pre-approved payments section and cancel the subscription. Simple as that.

Why are we doing this?

Keeping a high quality directory, with quite reasonable review prices, needs money, as any other business.

Since 90% of our listings are hand-picked by a team of hired editors we need financial resources to move on with what we're aiming for.

So, improvement involves money. We don't want Jasmine Directory to be just another spam directory, accepting each and every website. But sometimes, like in real life, too - quality has a price.

This is the only reason we decided to start selling banner ads.
