Select which placement you would like from the list of banners available below:

  • 468 x 60 Banner Top (468 pixels wide by 60 pixels high): with placement at the TOP of each page it typically gets a high response rate.
  • 728 x 90 Banner Eye level (maximum 728 pixels wide by 90 pixels high): This is the format we've found to be the most effective as it is placed above the fold, front and center in the viewer's screen and can't be ignored.
  • 120 x 60 Banner Top Corner (120 pixels wide, by 60 pixels high): with placement at the TOP right corner of each page it is a great value for a prime location advert.
  • 728 x 90 Banner Bottom: despite popular belief, the bottom spots on forums get great performance since visitors routinely scroll down the page to read the entire conversation thread; great value for performance.
  • 160 x 600 Skyscraper (right side of the page, max 160 pixels wide by 600 pixels high): This vertical position is excellent for strong graphical presence on the page. Its performance is extremely strong.

Don't have a banner ad? A banner creation service is available starting at $100 USD for a 120x60 banner, $150 USD for a 468x60 banner and $200 USD for a 728x90 or 160x600 banner. Please mention this in your inquiry.

Now is the best time to advertise on PPRuNe!
  With PPRuNe, now is the best time to advertise. No matter what time of year or season, PPRuNe has a constant stream of users and viewers, not to mention an incredible amount of growth per month. There is no down time or best/worse time to advertise.

PPRuNe just like any other advertising medium, has a limited number of advertisers we can handle at any given time, therefore, "sooner rather than later" is the best time to start a campaign with PPRuNe. We look forward to working with you. Please contact us for more information on customized targeted campaigns and current availability.
