Banner Advertising
TenLinks.com offers advertisers two banner advertising options: fixed or run of site. Fixed banners target a specific audience on select TenLinks.com pages. Your banner will be visible to every person every time that page is viewed. By contrast, a run of site campaign can display over a whole site. Several rotating banners can share the same space on a page.

Banners can be either GIF, JPEG formats or Flash. If sending flash, please follow these instructions. We accept animated images in the GIF 89a format, but limited to 3 loops and we accommodate 3rd party ad serving.

We do not accept ads that incorporate Java, Shockwave, Future Splash, video or any other multimedia format. We do not accept MAP files. GIF files must be transparent, and must contain no more than 256 colors.

Newsletter banners do not accept flash of any kind. Material must be either .gif or jpeg.  We also recommend that it be a static banner with no animation as Outlook 2007 only shows the last frame of an animated gif.

Advertisers are encouraged to provide up to three versions of each banner to rotate during the campaign.

We require three business days to post banners once received, providing materials are created in accordance to the above specifications.

All TenLinks.com banner sizes conform to the IAB/Casie standard.
