Banner Ad Information and Advertising Order:

This is not a pay per click site. Once you pay for your ad for the year, you can receive an unlimited number of clicks for that year. Banner ads are placed by size and seniority, starting from left to right. You can us a JPG, PNG or animated GIF for your banner ad. We do not rotate any banner ads between companies. The "Text Ads" (the ads with the border), are placed by alphabetical order.

We know that many people don't like to click on banner ads such as a newspaper website; however, since Helicopter Links does not use random ads (such as Google Ads) from outside the helicopter industry, we are seeing a nice click-through rate on companies which advertise with banner ads on Helicopter Links. Banner ads on Helicopter Links typically get, almost, the same amount of clicks as the "Text Ad" ads. Sometimes, banner ads get more clicks than their corresponding "Text Ad" ads. This is a good thing because it shows us that people are willing to click the banner ads.

Our Leaderboard Ad Spaces:

Our leaderboard banner ad space for branding purposes. The leaderboard ad is seen at the top of every web page on Helicopter Links regardless of which page the visitors enters Helicopter Links site and has the greatest viability. It is also the most premium ad space we offer. The most important part of leaderboard advertising is it's ability to brand your company, the number of clicks is not as important.

Some more information about directories and their benefits:

Somethings to consider.

  • At the moment a person uses the printed yellow pages, was it useful and important?
  • Was it useful and important at the moment of using a search engine? (Search engines are directories, yes search engines are an online yellow pages!)
  • Most users of directories don't think about how difficult it would be to find a supplier or service without directories.
  • People simply accept directories as being there for their use, find the information they need and move on.

This is the key to directory advertising. Directories are where sellers can advertise directly to buyers. A directory is where the buyer is doing the work to find your company.

Helicopter Link Is Available To Anyone And Is Free From Distractions

Another advantage of Helicopter Links website is there no logon and no membership to use our website. There are no advertising pop-ups, no "join our email list" pop-ups, no pop-up surveys, no Google ads and no news, Facebook or Twitter scrolling feeds—our website is free of distractions.

Banner Ad Click-Through Rate

We have found that people are very willing to click on banner ads listed on our website because we only publish helicopter related industry ads. Our visitors click on banner ads (on average) about the same amount of times they click on the corresponding text link for the same company. This is a fantastic statistic.

Imagine if Helicopter Links had random Google ads which were trying to sell cosmetics or the services of a plumber? The click-through rate on this type of ad would go down considerably and our visitors would be disappointed being barraged with ads which have nothing to do about the helicopter industry.

Social Media Benefits With Helicopter Links

We have other benefits for our advertising clients. When advertising with us, we are now including social media posts about your company. We are willing to post your press releases, share your Facebook posts, post promotional pieces from your website or blog (or we can post promotional pieces directly on our Facebook page). We then repost our Facebook posts on our Twitter feed.

We have incoming (Google Analytics) and outgoing (Analytics Engine) web statistics for each web page and company listed on Helicopter Links. We have lots of data which we can share with you.

Our Website Translates

We recognize that people visit Helicopter Links from around the world and do not necessarily speak English as their first language. We have a Google Translate button on the upper-right hand corner of every web page which translates our entire website into about 80 different languages. This opens up our web page to the entire world helping you reach your maximum customer potential.

To Put Helicopter Links' Incoming Visitor Numbers In Perspective

Trade shows usually last several days at best and are a very expensive proposition; however, the goal of most companies is to be easily found when buyers are ready to buy or by those researching before buying. The question is, how can a company connect with people, from anywhere in the world, in the helicopter industry, and at the moment they want to be sold? Answer: Helicopter Links

Creative Advertising

Creative Advertising is where the seller is searching for buyers.

  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Trade Shows
  • Flyers
  • Business cards
  • Direct mail
  • Websites
  • Social Media
  • TV
  • Radio
  • Billboards

Creative advertising works quite well when there is a large enough audience.

Directory Advertising

Directory Advertising is where the buyer is searching for the seller.

  • Helicopter Links
  • Search engines
  • Printed yellow pages
  • Printed company directories

A complete marketing mix uses both creative and directory advertising. A quick example of this: A buyer might see your magazine advertisement, visit your trade show booth, or have one of your flyers, business cards or trade show give-away (all creative advertising). Then six months later, the buyer is searching for your company on Helicopter Links (directional advertising), they recognize your logo in your banner ad and contact your company.

We connect buyers to sellers—online.
