How Does This Work?

There are three ways to put your ad on Myrtle Beach Golf Talk:

  1. Cost Per Impression (CPI) - This is the simplest model and is based on the number of times that the ad is displayed on the website.  Typically this is determined by Cost per Thousand (or Mille) impressions (CPM)
  2. Page Sponsorship - Should you wish to sponsor a specific page (sorry the forum is excluded from this arrangement), your ad(s) can be the only ones that are displayed on that page.
  3. Monthly - Myrtle Beach Golf Talk also provides a monthly advertising model where your advertisment is shown for a period of one month with a minimum number of impressions.  If the minimum number of impressions is not met for some reason, the campaign will continue until the minimum number of impressions has been reached.
