Football in Bracknell is a ‘not for profit’ endeavour aimed at promoting football in Bracknell and the surrounding areas of East Berkshire. You can read more about us here.
However it still costs money to run the site with server, domain name and other costs which we estimate to total between £300 and £400 a season.
With that in mind, we have decided to run some small non intrusive Google ads on the site which generate a little bit of money, while we also have the option to allow local business to feature in highly prominent ad slots.
Last season we were sponsored by EasyBranding, TeamStats, The White Horse Wokingham, Suarez Auto Spa and Calibra Tree Surgeons with all four companies ads generating 547,303 page views between them over the 12 months.
FootballinBracknell currently generates an average of 8,000 users visiting the site and 30,000 pages viewed a month according to Google Analytics.
Ad price and duration
We are asking for £50 per MPU (300 pixels wide by 250 pixels high) for the season – June 2018 to May 19. The ad will run in rotation with the others for 12 months.
Post an article
We regularly get asked to post articles for commercial ventures, leagues, training courses – that sort of thing. While anyone is welcome to post such things on our noticeboard for free we will post articles on our website for a fee of £20. The article will be subject to Football in Bracknell advertorial terms and conditions. Alternatively if you’d just like to write for us on a one off or regular basis you are welcome to submit ideas for consideration here.
How to pay
If you want to purchase an ad or an article, we’ve setup a form that uses PayPal (you can also pay this way with debit/credit card details)
Can’t see the form? It’s also here.
Some notes on what we do:
- Tom & Duds pay their entry fees for any games they go to. This money goes directly to the clubs that need it and we do not use money earned from the site to pay for this
- Any ‘extra’ money earned will be distributed to our local clubs in a way that is constructive for both FiB and the clubs in question
- All paid for ads on the site will run from 1st June 2017 until 31st May 2018 – there is only one payment required
