We have included below for your interest a sample from the unsolicited testimonials by sponsors to the value we provide in Web advertising. Not everyone who trys advertising on the Web finds it valuable. Some do and advertise with us again and again. While not everyone is happy with their Web advertising experience, we have never had a sponsor feel that we misrepresented our service or that we didn't provide good value for our prices. We are a small business and well understand the realities of small business. We are able to provide individual attention to each sponsor (somewhat less for the free trials - sorry). We always provide click logs after advertising runs and can provide view logs (or samples from them, they are quite large) upon request.
We have been providing solid advertising value on the Web since the summer of 1995 (a long time on the Web ;-). Here are some of the things our sponsors have had to say:
Nov 2000: ====================================================================== This message is from Zsolt Kerekes at ACSL (founded 1991) ACSL publishes the SPARC Product Directory(sm) & STORAGEsearch.com over 93,000 readers / month use these web directories email:- Zsolt@STORAGEsearch.com tel:- +44 1189 820 880 ====================================================================== Dear James Happy Holiday Now that I'm back from vacation, I just wanted to give you an update of how we're doing. It looks like our revenue will be at least 50% more than 1999. That's less growth than I expected at the start of the year, but profitability has also increased, and I see no reason why that should not continue next year. The cost per reader coming from your site is substantially lower than we pay for search-engines like GoTo (where I spend over six times as much.) I believe that as the web advertising industry matures, the kind of relationship in which narrowly focused sites buy in a percentage of new readers from complementary wider focused sites will continue to be sustainable, and I look forward to continuing this relationship with your site for a long time. Best Regards Zsolt Kerekes - Publisher Jul 99 and Aug 96: The banner has already generated over $500.00 in orders and tons of e-mail. The ad has already paid off. Thank you for your suggestions. Your advice is worth just as much as the banner ads. Thank you so much for your assistance and support. <and> Your banner creates plenty of delayed orders with friend to friend gossip. As soon as I complete my catalog, I will contact you for another run. I am very pleased with the service you provide and your location. Abbie Stancato - Incite Technologies http://www.my-secret.com/ Dec 96: I can't tell you how much I love advertising on your site. First and foremost, it produces results akin to our extremely targeted advertising on other sites. The log files are invaluable for me as I review what type of response we've had. Doing business with you is a real pleasure. Let's continue on with our original game plan for the next two months... Chuck Burke - Author of: HOW TO BUILD AN INTERNET SERVICE COMPANY (ISP or online business) http://www.index.mis.net/kanti/ Oct 95: I am very pleased with the results we are getting with the sponsorship. In fact I would like to run another graphic next week or as soon thereafter as possible. <and later> I would like to book the sponsorship for the entire month of December <95> if its possible. <and> Thanks for the stats, I sent them on to the client. They are very happy with the results. Dennis Caughran - Taren Systems http://www.taren.com/ Oct 1995: I have been very happy with your service. It has been great. We had about 100 additional people visit our page again yesterday, mainly due to the ad. We also received some orders! I would bet that this won't be the last time that I advertise with your service. I will probably be back in January. Feel free to use me as a recommendation to any potential advertisers. My phone number is 905-845-2570 or they can reach me at this E-mail address. Thanks again for all your suggestions and your help. You really went beyond your call and I could not have been more satisfied with this. Best Wishes to you and your continued success! Sonny Jelinek - The Nerve Internet http://www.thenerve.com/Thank You for your interest in advertising with Webstart Communications!
