Advertise on Musquet.com

 
​In the following article we describe the different aspects of advertising on Musquet.com.
First we take a look at the different kind of advertisements.
Then we create a new advertisement step by step.
And finally we look at the aspects of managing your advertisements.

Different kind of advertisements
On Musquet.com we have three kinds of advertisements.
  1. Regular advertisement
  2. TOP advertisement
  3. Web advertisement
The Regular advertisement is an advertisement which can be made for free.
And everyone who has an account on Musquet.com can add such an advertisement.
The main difference between Regular and TOP advertisement is that a Regular advertisement will move downwards in the listings.
So after a while your advertisement will be no longer on top of the listings and potential buyers see other advertisements first.
We made a special option so you can get your advertisement on top again.
For € 1,00 we put your advertisement on top of the listings again, without erasing any data.

If you want your advertisement on top of the listings constantly we have created a special kind of advertisement namely the TOP advertisement.
The TOP advertisement stays on top of the listings without extra proceedings.
So potential buyers will see your advertisement first which increases the chance of a successful sale.
For this option we charge a fee of € 10,00.

We also offer the option of placing a link to your website in the advertisement.
This kind of advertisement is called the Web advertisement.
So potential buyers can visit your website by clicking on your weblink.
For this option we charge a fee of € 10,00.

The TOP advertisement and the Web advertisement can also be combined.
So you get a TOP Web advertisement.
This advertisement will be on top of the listings and has a link to your website.
For this option we charge a fee of € 20,00.
