We're open to the idea of placing natural-sounding text links on any of the pages on our website. A great way to get your name out there to our fans, and a massive potential SEO boost for your own website too. We're happy to add text links to any page which is related to your brand, service or target market.
The most prominent form of advertising, guaranteed to get maximum exposure your brand, these adverts are impossible for a user to miss and come in two forms:
Pop-over advertisements dim the actual website to focus the whole page on your company's message. Users will stay focused on your message for a minimum of 5 seconds before the ad disappears.
Pop-under ads are a little more subtle, opening a background window on the user's computer that isn't immediately visible. Curious users will see your message when a browser tab is closed or when they notice the new window has appeared on their taskbar.
Each team and ground on our website has a dedicated page with information about it. These pages are incredibly useful and include statistics, photos, reviews, directions and facts. They are some of the most popular pages on the site and are a great way to advertise your product to interested fans.
Supporters will generally use the pages to research about a stadium which they are planning to visit. As a result, it's a great place to advertise for companies who cater for away supporters, for example:
An example of a team page: Sheffield United
An example of a ground page: Bramall Lane
