The main purpose of the NCSA web site is to supply quality channels of communication to its members and on behalf of its members – advertising and advertorial plays a necessary part in this communication. There are number of advertising options available when a business becomes a financial member of the NCSA. These options are:
- NCSA Business Directory Listing
- Banner Advertising on selected NCSA web site pages
- Advertorial-style articles that appear under the “Featured” section
NCSA Business Directory
A financial member of the NCSA automatically receives a free listing in the NCSA Directory. The directory, at a minimum, provides contact details and external link options, a business description, product description, and a dynamic Google Map entry. A financial NCSA member inserts and maintains their own directory listing online by logging in and adding/editing their own listing.
In addition to the free online directory for all financial NCSA Members, there is also opportunity for a member to have a paid online presence. Currently, there are two ways in which an NCSA member may utilise paid advertising:
Rotating banner advertising on selected pages of the web site which may be directed towards internal NCSA website pages or your own organisation's web site. These will be of varying sizes – please see Advertisement Sizes for more information.
Advertorial Pages in “Featured” section
A single page advertorial style article to appear under the Featured Distributors or Product Showcase navigation links which works best with an additional small display banner advertisement (at additional cost);
Important to Note!
It is important to note that when we talk about “advertising” or “advertorial” on this site, there are two cost centres involved. The first being the actual web site space and facilities of the NCSA priced as per the NCSA Schedule of Fees and are standard to all members; the second is potential design and production costs chargeable for content if you elect to use the NCSA's agent to design/create content files for you. However, if you wish to have your own marketing division create and supply advertising content then in most cases there is no additional production cost charges (see NCSA advertising specs) .
