Information for Advertisers: (updated 3 November 2007)
Visitors to Joe and Jack's GPS Information Website are often
interested in purchasing GPS equipment and accessories. We
plan to continue the "no advertising" policy on our main website but
now have prominent icons opposite our site index offering viewers to
Clickthrough to our advertising pages. Visitors to our website
are often "new or aspiring GPS users" and so often are interested in
the purchase of new equipment.
Available Banner types and sizes and advertising
- 468x60 pixel banners, 12 kb max size, any animated
ads must be in good taste and with frame rotation no faster than one
frame per 2 seconds. SIZE
CONSTRAINTS MUST BE OBSERVED.
- Price 11 cents per click through to your website.
- We now have a NORTH AMERICAN, EUROPEAN, and SOUTH PACIFIC advertising pages
for these interest groups. This approach limits
the number of nonproductive visitors from other geographic areas.
Should advertisers from other areas (such as ASIA) advertise with
us, we will start a separate page for these areas.
- Vendors sponsoring a banner will also get a standard 136 character text line
listing in alphabetical order.
- Banner artwork files and text for the "classified type
advertisement listings" are furnished by advertiser.
- Placement of new banners on the USA page will be in random
rotation. Any conflicts decided solely at the discretion of Joe
- There is no difference in pricing if you prefer a Banner Only
or a Text Only listing since we charge only on a "per clickthrough basis".
- Above banner and text example placement are not cast in
concrete and are subject to change for artistic uniformity. We
reserve the right to adjust the format of our advertising page(s)
from time to time as necessary as the number of advertisers may dictate.
- Text Coloration in the text only listings will be
uniform but may change from time to time.
- We require that all banners and verbiage be in "good taste"
and banners not have garish colors. In case of conflict our
decision on what is "in good taste" is final. Text listings are
limited to two lines (136 character max) at 600x800 resolution.
- We reserve the right to refuse or to terminate any
advertisement for any reason at our sole discretion.
- Some customers have complained of difficulty in reaching a few
of our advertisers. You must have at minimum a non 800 telephone
number, official company name and postal address (No Post Office Boxes) along with a REAL
eMail address posted on your website so that customers with problems can
contact you without difficulty.
- We have "double column" advertising page format for 1024x768
(or higher) resolution browsers. This page will be automatically
selected for viewing by browsers with the proper attributes. (see new page
HERE, Requires 1024x768 resolution for proper viewing).
Browsers with 800x600 or less resolution will view the page HERE.
- Rotating Position of Banners is Standard.
ONE banner advertisment for a corporate entity is allowable in each
regional banner page. You may have a banner in more than one
regional banner page. For example: If you have a USA store
but also export to Europe, you could have a banner ad placed on the USA
and on the European advertiser's page as well. But if your
company has two websites selling similar GPS equipment, then only ONE
of them can have a banner on our site. This makes the playing
field fair for everyone.
- We employ individual clickthrough counting. We will
invoice based on the total monthly count as generated by clickthroughs
to your website plus any special services as you may request.
- In case of any discrepancy between our "click through" count
and yours, we will accept YOUR count. You must notify us in
writing within 15 days of receipt of any discrepancy or accept our count.
- If our liberal policy above is abused, we reserve
the right to discontinue your advertising service on our website.
- You can cancel your account at any time and pay for services
up to the date we receive your cancellation in writing.
- You can change your artwork at any time by payment of a $25
service charge. No charge for initial insertion.
- Monthly billing is via VISA or MasterCard. We will send
you a detailed invoice monthly by eMail to your address of record unless
you request an invoice by US mail. The monthly invoice amount will
be charged to your Visa or MasterCard approximately 5 days after invoice
is sent. VISA/MC billing will be via our affiliate: Intellitech
Industries/Lookout Portable Security Division who handle our
In the first months of 2004, our website "home page visit
rate" has run at an average rate of about 185,000 per
month. Christmas season visit rates were a bit higher. One source
indicates we are number three in GPS related website traffic
after the Garmin and Trimble websites and our site is on the first page
of most search engine returns when searches for GPS or GPS
Receivers and such are made. We have no way of predicting future
usage of our website or how many of our users may elect to click on our
"Need a new GPS or accessories?, CLICK HERE" icon to go to our
advertising page(s). In any case, our "pay per
clickthrough to your website" pricing insures you will only pay for
traffic actually delivered.
We cannot guarantee continuous service as server and WebSite Host outages
can happen and are beyond our control.
We will try and keep our rules and regulations simple and
workable and our costs low. As we develop this
service, it may be necessary to change the rules and
charges above from time to time. In such case, you
will receive written notice by Email to your address of
record. At -any- time you can opt out of your agreement by
FAXING or EMAILing us and paying only for services rendered to
the time of cancellation. Please contact JOE MEHAFFEY with
