What will my advert look like?

Who can advertise?

We are happy to advertise any type of business, whether you are a sole trader or large corporate entity. We generally like to advertise businesses that are in or around Bourne itself, but are not averse to advertising businesses elsewhere in the country too. We are also happy to advertise clubs and organisations.

Why do you charge for advertising?

It costs money to keep this website running. We must pay for hosting the website, along with domain registration and paying for certain services on the site. Advertising revenue helps to pay for all this and without this we wouldn't be able to afford to keep the site running. We have tried to keep the cost of advertising low and as a result we feel this represents excellent value for money, especially when you consider that magazines can charge hundreds of pounds for advertising space.
