Advertising at The Van Expert

The Van Expert is pleased to welcome advertising opportunities to the website.  We have several options available for advertising, but are happy to consider alternatives if you have any suggestions.

The Van Expert is the brand new sister site to The Car Expert, and is devoted to providing news and advice on buying, financing, insuring and maintaining a new or used commercial vehicle.

Advertising with an independent site like The Van Expert represents an excellent opportunity to present your message to an audience looking for immediate answers and encouragement.

We accept PayPal or electronic transfer payments, and do not charge a surcharge for paying by PayPal if paying in GBP.  Please also note that payment terms are strictly 7 days.

For all advertising enquiries, please contact [email protected].

Sponsored posts and infographics

The Van Expert welcomes sponsored posts and infographics from advertisers.  However, these will be clearly identified at the top of the page with the line “This article is brought to you by [advertiser’s name]”.  This is not negotiable, and we will not attempt to pass off paid content as unpaid content, so please don’t ask.

Sponsored posts are priced at £75 if the client is providing all copy and images, and £125 if we are providing content and images.  Discounts for multiple posts are available if the entire amount is paid upfront.  We strictly limit the number of sponsored posts that are published each month.

The Van Expert will not place links in any articles for advertisers unless they are submitted as sponsored posts and clearly identified as such.  We get regular requests for paid links in our independently-produced content, and will not accept such proposals.  Links in sponsored posts will be nofollow unless otherwise requested; this is subject to change in line with Google policy on sponsored content.

Please include all content and pictures/graphics when submitting your article for priority processing.  Article submissions which do not include pictures or graphics will inevitably take longer to post.  Images should be high-resolution and in as large a size as you have available, to allow the website editor to crop and resize accordingly.

Please clearly state who you are working for and which client(s) you are representing in your post request.

If you would like to replace the default banner advertisements (see below) or remove them altogether, this is available at additional cost (price depends on number of advertisements involved).

Banner advertisements

All posts and pages on The Van Expert have at least three advertisement banners – some will have more, if they are long articles.  These are usually populated by Google AdSense and Yahoo Bing Media.Net.

Any of these banners are available for exclusive purchase.   Advertisers are welcome to update the banner content as often as they like during the term of their agreement.  For information on banner pricing, please contact [email protected].

Product or service reviews

Products/services are welcomed for review.  Please contact [email protected] if you have a product or service you would like us to review.

Bespoke advertising opportunities

The Van Expert welcomes ideas for bespoke advertising opportunities, such as particular features or projects.  Please present a detailed proposal to [email protected] so we can discuss it.

If you have any questions or would like to place an advertisement on The Van Expert, please do not hesitate to contact [email protected].  Please also state clearly who you are working for (ie – no fake names from anonymous gmail addresses, please)
