Since the launch of our New Landlord Services Business Directory (last week) many of our sponsors that have paid up for a year of advertising with us have been, on average, receiving upto 100 hits on their advert A DAY.

So why is online advertising so popular?

Principally; the birth of the internet has given us ALL the opportunity to immediately publish information and content, without the limitations of location or time.
AND with the mainstream media phone hacking scandal being revealed last year we believe that the future of factual news will stem from the general public via internet blogs & forums.

Therefore online advertising grants the customer the freedom of customizing and editing their advertisement themselves; from the comfort of their own home.

Along with the evidential cash savings, online advertising means you can target even the most specific niche of clientele; opening up the world of business enterprise to everyone.

  2. I think the reason why on-line advertising is growing is due to Google Adwords and Facebook whom allow such direct targeting of marketing.

    In the days were Billboards, TV and Radio was the only advertisements, a lot of the advertisers message was wasted. Such as advertising Mortgages to unemployed, the only targeting was “time of day” and stereotyping who would be watching a program.

    With targeted marketing, its much more direct. In addition its track able, traditional advertising could not tell you how they knew about your product or service. But with online adverts, you can see where/when/how they came from.
