Since creating this site in December of 2004, Food Retail World has accumulated what I feel are impressive statistics :
More than 164,000 unique visitors, over 232,400 visits from more than 200 countries, 475,275 page views and well over 10,870,000 hits.
For that reason I have had to change my policy on not having advertising on the site in order to be able to keep it as up to date as possible and be able to provide visitors here with the free information that is hard to obtain elsewhere.
With the amount of traffic the site receives and requests from visitors for what they would like to see, I do not have the amount of space available to me on the servers that I would like to have to be able to offer even more free material to visitors here.
The high volume of traffic has also pushed the bandwith of the site to the limits at times to where at the month ends, there is a possibility of disruptions to service and accessibility of Food Retail World as a result.
In order to expand and improve the free offerings on this website, I am considering several options of having advertising on this site. One option is to allow advertisers space on the website in the areas you have seen that show "Ad Space Available" and has brought you here.
Where this site is not for profit, my intention is to only ask for what is needed to fund the site itself. With that, the rates and advertsing opportunity I have in mind are simple:
~ A one time charge of $25-$50 per ad, per page for 12 months from the date of advertising. Any changes, additions or replacements of any ad requiring editing beyond the initial placement of the ad on the site will be considered a new ad for which new payment will be required.
~ For larger ads or possible special request locations the rate would be higher but negotiable. I am willing to consider reasonable offers for ads to be put on multiple or all pages.
~ Ads must be relevant to the content of this website.
~ I reserve all of the rights to the content of the website and advertisements that would be included are a courtesy and no advertiser will have any right to content beyond the agreed to placement of their ad on a specific page(s).
~ In lieu of payments, advertisers may offer reports or other information that can be included on this website to be available free to visitors here. Links to external websites are not acceptable where I would have no control over its availability to Food Retail World visitors. Any and all information would be subject to my review and approval.
~ Given the international scope of this website, payment for the ads must be made to me via Paypal and are non-refundable. Though there has never been any problems or issues with website downtime, I do not have control over the services the site uses, the amount of bandwith the site requires from month to month and I cannot guarantee site uptime of the site.
Food Retail World is hosted by HOSTING INSIDERS and has been from the start and it is in my opinion the best and most affordable service to work with.
