Sponsorship & Advertising Information
TheFanatics.co.za ADVERTISING SUBSCRIPTION OPTIONS (as of 01 March 2015)
eMail firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
Here are the two (currently available) advertising options on TheFanatics.co.za for potential advertisers in addition to our Google adsense advertising. We are continuously striving to offer additional advertising options for the different groups of advertisers and to keep advertising costs affordable:
OPTION 1: YOUR OWN FORUM CATEGORY AND ADVERTISING:
A. This is a great option if you intend to participate regularly on the forum to respond to questions on the forum or make posts about your products and services - you will receive a much better response from the forum members if you participate regularly.
B. Your company banner will be displayed in the sponsor forum, clicking on this banner will take you to your company sub-forum page, where your company description will be available, as well as a link back to your own company's website (if you have one).
C. With this package, you will also have your own company sub forum, where members can interact with you and your company, you will be given access to three company usernames, which will be in a different colour to the normal usernames, and also state that you are a forum advertiser.
D. You will be allowed one mass PM (Private Message) to all the forum members per month, alerting them of new products, specials or services with regards your business.
E. As a value added item, advertisers will receive a Google analytics report (on request) detailing TheFanatics.co.za visitor trends. Requests can be made to email@example.com. These can be used to better tailor your posts and information toward a higher hit rate on Google searches and also give you a good idea of how much exposure you are getting on the web via TheFanatics.co.za
F. Your company logo and company description with contact details will also be added to the TheFanatics.co.za Facebook page for added exposure.
G. Your company banner and logo have to be supplied by yourself according to the specifications provided by TheFanatics.co.za
H. Full payment must be made on signature of a contract with TheFanatics.co.za for a 12 month subscription.
I. You will have to sign a formal contract with TheFanatics.co.za
OPTION 2: SPAZA SHOP: SIMPLE ADVERTISING WITH NO FORUM CATEGORY OR BANNER DISPLAY:
A. A special sub-forum has been created called the 'Spaza Shop'. This sub-forum can be found under the (Market place) forum.
B. Please note: The Spaza Shop is for the small-scale, informal vendor, which sells one or a couple of products. The Spaza Shop is not ideal if you have multiple items that you want to sell on a regular and consistent basis.
C. An advertiser that wants to advertise in the 'Spaza Shop' will be issued with a new username which contains a special ID for that sub-forum. But you also require a minimum of 20 posts if you wish to apply to advertise in the Spaza Shop.
D. No company details, information, banners, logos, websites, products will be displayed in your username, signature or avatar. Your products and services may only be promoted in the thread/post that you created and in the Spaza Shop.
E. You are only allowed to create threads, posts, pix, videos in the Spaza Shop sub-forum if you wish to advertise your products or services. If you create a business thread outside of the Spaza Shop it will be moved to the Spaza Shop by the moderators without consultation. However, you may participate in all forums and create any threads and posts elsewhere on TheFanatics.co.za if it does not have a commercial or sales intent.
F. As a value added to Spaza Shop advertisers: Threads/posts, posted in the Spaza Shop will also show up in the 'Todays Post' and 'New Posts' of the bigger forum and can be seen by all members. This will create more exposure for Spaza Shop advertisers.
G. Full payment must be made on signature of a contract with TheFanatics.co.za for a 12 month subscription.
H. You will have to sign a formal contract with TheFanatics.co.za
A formal contract will be entered into with the advertiser once the application has been approved by TheFanatics.co.za
The contract will entail the terms and conditions for advertising.
Please note that the price offering for the different advertising options above may differ from advertiser to advertiser and TheFanatics.co.za reserves the right to alter such pricing structures or advertising offering at its sole discretion.
TheFanatics.co.za will only consider an advertising application after the following information has been provided:
1. Your full name and surname as representative of the company.
2. The company full name.
3. Company physical address (domicilium citandi et executandi).
4. Company email address.
5. Company website.
6. Your contact number as representative of the company.
7. Your chosen username on the forum to represent your company (eg: peter@BMWgarage, where "Peter" is your name and "BMWgarage is the company name).
This will display in red and bold format as your username on the forum.
8. A full description of the business’s trade focus (eg: tyres, exhausts, alignment etc).

The decision of the Forum site administrator in approving advertising requests/applications will be final and the applicant will be informed of the outcome via email. The more information you provide, the sooner an advertising application can be finalised.
