Advertising Rates & Payment for Basic Entries and Special Positions on this website

Visiting Cornwall Advertising Standards

Basic New Entries are simple entries on the relevant page on Visiting Cornwall (more details below). An existing free entry from the early days of Visiting Cornwall (before 2004) can be enhanced to the same standard for the same one-off payment of 10.00.
This is our most popular and most cost effective form of advertising for your business but it is limited to the types of businesses that are featured on this site (i.e. Cornish-based tourism-orientated businesses).

Primary Positions are for small images of your logo or the property (approx. 120px X 120px) linked to your business website. These are positioned at the top of the Home page and are available for any advertiser as long as it complies with the Visiting Cornwall Advertising Standards.

Primary Sponsored Links are text links to your business website with up to 50 words to describe it. These are also positioned on the Home page.

Secondary Positions are at the tops of any of the remaining pages (i.e. any page except the Home page) and the bottom of the Home page (scroll down to the end).

Secondary Sponsored Links are text links to your business website with up to 50 words to describe it. These are positioned at the tops of the relevant main listing page for the business type - Hotels, Restaurants, Theme Parks, Art Galleries, Gift Shops etc.

Level 3 Links are image or text links at the bottom of the secondary site pages.

Multiple placings can attract significant discounts - please contact us with your intentions and we will supply you with a quotation.

Initial payments cover a period of 12 months commencing from the day on which the advertisment is added to the Visiting Cornwall website.
Renewal rates apply for the next 12 month period from the anniversary of the advertisement first appearing .
Notification of renewal will be issued to it becoming due and payment must be received by the renewal date.
Failure to renew on time will result in the advertisement being removed. (10 days grace will be allowed.)
Reinstatement may be made following payment but we can not guarantee that the same position will still be available. Primary and Secondary positions may no longer be available following late payment as they may have been allocated to an advertiser from our waiting list (see below).

Changes to any of these Special Position advertisements (including the logo or destination website address) will also attract a small charge (usually not exceeding 10).

As there is limited space available on the Primary and Secondary positions, these will be allocated on a first come - first served basis. Once full, a waiting list will be maintained pending failure to renew by existing occupants.

ADVERT TYPE INITIAL PAYMENT RENEWAL CHARGE PER CHANGE
Primary Position or Primary Sponsored Link 50.00 25.00 1.75
 
Secondary Position 40.00 20.00 1.75

Rates for New Entries and for Enhancing Existing Free Entries

All new entries comprise the (optional) inclusion of a company logo or small (approx 120px X 120px) photograph (as supplied by you) and your descriptive text, telephone number, fax number and email address up to a maximum of 150 words. This will cost you a one-off payment of just 10.00 with no annual fees. For entries exceeding 150 words, please contact us for a quotation.

Enhancing an existing free entry to the same level as a paid new entry will also attract the same one-off payment of 10.00 and will be to the same standard.

Examples of enhanced and basic paid entries:
B & B - Parc-An-Grouse Guest House, Penallick Hotel, The Rathgowry, Tarny Bed and Breakfast
Self-Catering - Gull Rock Holiday Apartments, The Olde House at Chapel Amble, Barn Conversions at Parc-An-Grouse, Tide House, Wayside Holiday Cottage, Woodmill Farm, Cornish Cottages, Cornish Retreats, West Cornwall Cottage Holidays
Hotels - Nebula Hotel

Rates for Making Regular Updates to Entries

Regular periodic updates to your basic line entry, enhanced line entry or Special Position Entry are possible at a charge of 1.75 a time.

Regular payments on a weekly or monthly basis would attract the discounted rates of 15.00 per annum (monthly changes) and 60.00 per annum (weekly changes). These annual payments will apply whether or not changes are required in a particular week or month. Regular changes can be a useful way of publicising special events or end-of-season discounts. For restaurants it can be used to refer to the different Chef's Special each week.

Free Listings

There are two pages on Visiting Cornwall where we display free listings.

One is Useful sites in Cornwall or with Cornish connections, where we show the website address which links to that website. This is for websites directly related to Cornwall and/or the Cornish people.

The other is Non-Cornish Reciprocal Links where the site name is shown as the link to the website. This is for websites not related to Cornwall or the Cornish.

The prerequisites for getting your link added to either of these pages are:
  1. A reciprocal link is in place on the referenced website on a page that has a link from the Home or Index page.
  2. The referenced website does not include adult content, illegal content, content related to any form of gambling or any content related to guns, knives or other weaponry.
  3. The website address is sent to Visiting Cornwall by email to:


Visiting Cornwall will endeavour to add your link within 7 working days subject to us having found the reciprocal link on the referenced website.

Note: If we find that the link to Visiting Cornwall has been removed, the page containing that reciprocal link is no longer linked from the Home or Index page, the content of your site is no longer suitable or the website ceases to exist, your link will be removed from our page without notice.

From our web stats we are aware that these pages are not amongst our popular pages with none of them receiving more that 50 views per month.

Website and Web Page Creation - reduced rates for businesses in Cornwall

Amdow Web Design, the creators of this website, offer a reduced rate for basic websites for businesses based in Cornwall which feature in this website (or are eligible to be added).

For businesses without any website we offer a single page site linked through this Visiting Cornwall for just 30.00. This will allow you to use a web address of www.visiting-cornwall.co.uk/your business name.

See the Amdow Web Design website for further details.
