ADVERTISING & PROMOTIONAL GUIDELINES (As of September 28, 2019)

Urban Reviews - Advertising Guidelines -
(As of September 28, 2019) -

Thank you for your interest in advertising on UrbanReviewsOnline.com. Here are our basic guidelines for paid advertising. 

1. We  offer banner advertising, sidebar book cover advertising and social media advertising including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The graphic for the banner ad must be 600 pixels wide by 150 pixels high and also must be provided at the time of emailing your ad request. The graphic for the book cover ad will be scaled to 150 pixels by 219 pixels and must be provided at the time of emailing your advertising request.  


2. You must email your request to adspace@urban-reviews.com. We will review your request and email you back on whether your ad will be accepted for display on our website. Do NOT send money before your ad is approved. We will email you with the total cost (including Paypal processing fees) and acknowledge the specific start and end dates that we can accommodate for your ad campaign. 


Please include the following information with your advertisement request:


- Your Name
- Desired Form of Payment: Paypal (Note: Credit/Debit cards can be used for sending Paypal payment. You don't need to sign up for Paypal in order to pay for the ad.)

- Requested Start and End Dates of when you would like the ad(s) to run if accepted
- Name of the book(s) or website that you would like to feature
- Link to the page that the ad will be directed to (if unknown, we will link to product on Amazon)
- The actual banner or book cover graphic attached to your email request or a link to a site.
- The Email address that we should send the Paypal money request to.

4. The advertising rates are as follows:


- Banner Advertising: $50 per month, $135 for 3 months ($15 savings).


- Book Cover Advertising : $30 per month, $75 for 3 months ($15 savings)


5. Placement for a book cover ad will be on the far right side, while banner advertising will be just above the featured content for that particular page (always near the top). The ads will be featured on every single page of the site.  There is no guarantee of where your book cover ad will be placed within the sidebar advertising area.

Note:  All Paypal payments will incur an additional $1-$10 transaction fee depending on the ad selected.

More about Banner Advertising:
- A customized single sentence byline link will be allowed to be placed under the banner ad.
- If no sentence byline is supplied to us, a basic sentence byline will be placed under the graphic.
- The ad can link to any reasonable website URL.  If no link is specified, it will be linked to the Amazon.com page for the book (or the Amazon.com landing page for the author's multiple books).
- Absolutely no ANIMATED graphics will be allowed for banner advertising.
- Only 3 banner ads will be displayed per month, but this could change at any time in the future.  
- Pricing above is based on the Banner ad graphic being supplied by the author/publisher.  

6. Monthly ad campaigns will run for one calendar month (i.e. April 1st-30th or April 15th-May 14th). Space is limited.

7. Only Paypal payments will be accepted. A Paypal money request will be sent to the email address provided. Absolutely no checks, cash, money order or any other form of payment will be accepted.
