The Chipguide network of bulletin boards are provided for your use free of
The substantial cost of keeping these forums free of charge is paid for by
banner advertising and donations. If you wish to advertise then read
below, your business or website could benefit greatly and it is cheap. If
you wish to contribute but don't have a website or anything to advertise then
there are two ways you can do this.
Firstly you could sponsor a banner advert linking to either the Museum of
Gaming History or the CC>CC websites, on the same basis as the paid
advertising described below. Alternatively, you can make an anonymous (to
me) donation via paypal, using this button:
Why Advertise Here?
There is no better way on the internet to reach casino chip & token
collectors then by advertising on the ChipGuide network of web sites. With
more than 15 MILLION advertisement displays per year, no other chip
collecting network can provide anywhere near the number of displays for your
banner advertising. In most instances these sites are the first place found by
new collectors when they start to look on the net for chip & token collecting
information. Even if it isn't the first place they find, it soon becomes the
site they visit most often.
Advertising rates for paid sponsors are only $5 per month per unit of advertising,
or $50 for a year if paid in advance. As if that wasn't inexpensive
enough, we also offer a banner exchange service that lets you
place advertisements on our network for free!
How Does It Work?
Units are displayed on a continual rotating basis. You can
have as many units as you like. Each unit is flexible. They can all display the same advertisement or different units
can display different advertisements. In fact, a single unit can even be made to display one of several different
advertisements on a random basis. You will be provided with a password protected method to access all the statistics
related to your advertisements. You have complete 24 hour access so you can see how often your advertisement is being
displayed and how often a potential customer actually clicks on your ad. With that information you can easily track which
ads pull better for you. Keep in mind, we provide you with a large audience for your advertising message but it is your
message and the manner with which you present it that provides you with actual click-thrus.
How To Get Started
You need one or more banner advertisements. The standard dimensions for an advertising banner are 468 x 60 pixels
and around 15K in size. Banners can be easily designed with just a little practice by using the graphics programs provided
with your computer, or, there are several places on the internet that allow you to design your own banner ad for free. One that
we like is addesigner.com. When you are ready, just send me an
email and I'll get you started!
