- Banner Ads
- Please keep in mind that the position of ads on Web pages is approximate and will vary. The layout of a Web page is always subject to change, because it is determined by page design, dynamic page content, the user's screen size, and the user's browser version and settings.
- A standard ad is in the form of GIF animation, displayed via standard "IMG" tag and linked via standard "A" tag. A non-standard ad typically requires special coding by Publisher, and possibly requires that users have specific plug-in viewer.
- Advertiser assumes responsibility for whether users have required viewer installed.
- If Flash is used, the .SWF file must be accompanied by all necessary HTML code to display and link from the ad.
- Respected Content
The collection of Cool Solutions managed properties includes the most respected (and fun) sources of real-world business and technology guidance in the industry. They offer hands-on techniques for executives, managers, developers and other professionals who must choose and use appropriate information and business technology, products and services.
- Primed Buyers
Customers come to Cool Solutions managed properties for help (and the occasional slap on the side of the head). They are seeking solutions. Place your advertising on any of these properties and you'll reach the right people in the right mood -- when they need a solution and are ready to buy.
- Targeted Advertising
Advertising in a Cool Solutions managed property puts you in direct contact with highly-qualified business and IT executives, managers and professionals (not to mention a bevy of sandal-clad brainiacs). You can choose to reach your perfect prospect through a specific campaign strategy or through a broad program of reach and frequency.
- Loaded Toolbelt
Cool Solutions Solutions properties include a variety of powerful, unique marketing platforms. Advertising opportunities include banner ads and newsletter sponsorships.
Our current banner CTR (Click Through Ratio) is averaging 0.43%. Some of our advertisers are getting twice that rate of return. We back up these stats with a report (emailed to you weekly). Advertisers also get an account on our ad management system so you can log in and check the performance of your ads whenever you like. Our newsletter lists are updated daily. Bad addresses, duplicates, and requests for removal are addressed daily by our support staff.
