NEW – INDIVIDUALIZED PROMOTER PAGES

Promoters, we now offer to set up an individualized page for $25.00 a month with an annual agreement.

The page and coupon is designed with your logo and you can even have your show banners added if you choose, at no extra cost.

You do not have to purchase banners for your listings to qualify for this promotion.
If you only advertise with free listings and decide to go with an individualized promoter page, a link to your page will be added to your free listings.

Individualized Promoter Pages can only be accessed in three ways, a link in the free listings, a link on the banners, and the Promoters & Vendors pages. You will also be able to access it by googling it.

Promoters and vendors are listed per state, that is, per state they serve. The link to the Promoters & Vendors page is located in the Right-Hand column of every state page.

This agreement can be paid in full in advance, or half in advance and the other half on the first business day of the 7th month of the agreement, or you can pay monthly. Billing will be via PayPal invoicing until further notice so if you choose this promotion, please be sure to include a well-maintained email address to the person in charge of paying the bills. All billing is from Kurburski Web Development, LLC – the parent company of GunShows-USA.

Promoters with 4 or less venues and who purchase a minimum of 15 banners per year will receive a complementary individualized promoter page. Banner size does not matter. The page link will also be added to both the show listing area and complimentary listing; it will also be added to the banner unless another specified link is provided. 

Individualized promoter pages are only available on an annual agreement basis or as a complementary page for those who purchase or list 15 or more banners per year. Special Offers and discounts do not apply with this promotion.

SPECIALTY BANNER SPACES

HOME PAGE BANNER SPACE

Above the show listings – $120.00 per month, large show banner only.

NEW! – STATE PAGE ROTATING BANNER SPACES

Above the show listings – $100.00 per month, 1200 pixels wide by 100 pixels high. Limited spaces available.
This new offer is not a new concept, but rather, a revamped one. It includes a complimentary side listing and is linked to an individualized promoter page with all shows and their information, all contact information, embedded maps for venues, and a downloadable coupon designed specifically for your shows –  if you choose. Due to the space this banner is placed in, it does not include the usual free listing above the banner – all of  that information, and more, will be added to the complimentary, individualized promoter page.
See Special Offers for agreements and discounts. 


GunShows-USA does not sell weapons, ammunition, or armor.

All charges,  listing spaces, and regulations are subject to change at any given moment.


ANIMATION OR STATIC?


Animations are entertaining and that is what multitudes of viewers like to see.  A static advertisement can get the message across just as easily as an animated advertisement, but animations are just plain fun to watch.  Whether you choose a static ad or an animated ad is totally up to you, but remember, it is the viewer who you are trying to reach.

With attractive and/or entertaining advertisements promoters generally get a better viewer statistic.  Animation does take time (and effort) to design and set in motion, but the cost is worth it if that animation generates more viewers and brings more people to your shows.

Animation is $50 per advertisement regardless of the size of the ad because, as mentioned before, they take time and effort to design and set in motion.
