Advertising and Support
Advertisers are key to the success of BulaTree since they support the site financially.
BulaTree has three main user types:
Each charity can raise money on the site, free of charge, either through auction sales or from direct donations. The only fees that they would incur during the process are from third-party payment gateways, such as PayPal.
Businesses sponsor the site through advertising, which is available across three different areas. This facility is only available to advertiser users.
1, The first area is located near the bottom of the “homepage.” Each advert is placed within a group of ten adverts, auto-scrolling from right to left and then in reverse across the page. The maximum allowed advert size is 400px x 400px. Images must be in a jpg format. The advertising rates are located on the “MyAccount Admin” page. To advertise here, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any inquiries.
2, The second advertising region is located on the “item search” page. These adverts are also displayed near the bottom of the page in the same format as the homepage adverts. The maximum allowed advert size is 400px x 400px, with images being in a jpg format. The advertising rates are located on the “MyAccount Admin” page. To advertise here, please contact us at email@example.com for questions or queries.
3, The third option is alongside each item a charity has up for auction, either on the right-hand side or below the listing. The advertising space is indicated available by the BulaTree logo. While options 1 and 2 are managed by the admin, with this option, the advertiser/business can directly upload their advertising directly onto the site by simply clicking the BulaTree Logo, then going to their “MyAccount Admin” page, uploading their advert, and purchasing. The advert will automatically be placed in position next to the item, and a larger version is placed on the item’s auction page. The maximum allowed advert size is 1200px x 400px 125kB, and images must be jpg. The advertising rates are located on the “MyAccount Admin” page.
