Sponsorship

If you sponsor a page at vCalc, you will have exclusive rights to place ads in the two standard advertisement boxes, and vCalc's staff will work with you to customize the page to show your products (where appropriate) in the calculator examples.  Furthermore, vCalc's staff will include hyper-links to your company's product sites wherever appropriate within the calculator page. The standard ads are 160x600 pixels and 300x250 pixels.

As a sponsor, you will also receive detailed monthly reports on the user traffic on the pages you've sponsored.  This is the full suite of Google Analytic reports that will help you measure the effect of your advertising and see information on the people viewing your advertisements.

In short sponsorship buys:

  1. Two exclusive ad spaces (160x600 and 300x250).
  2. Use of your product images within the calculator instructions and information sections.
  3. Links to your product pages where appropriate.  This promotes search engine optimization to your site.
