Well-Vetted. Designed Well.

We’re picky about the advertising we accept. We only accept ad content that is relevant and appropriate for our readers. And we limit banner ad design to a black background, white text and a graphic. No spinning, flashing, obnoxious blinking things. We expect your ads to look good, communicate and integrate with the Salon website. Why? Research shows people avoid looking at ads or more importantly, items they perceive as ads. People ignore ads that look different than the rest of the site, are over polished, are animated, and appear unnecessary. The will look at ads that display items a user many want to buy, are related to the page content, match the style of the site they’re on. So, don’t feel bad if your ad does not get approved right away or we ask you to modify it. And if you need help crafting an ad, we can do so for an additional $50 per single banner creative concept. Modifications and changes to the first concept will be billed at $50/hr. Contact Drawing on the Promises LLC at frank{at} if you need help with design. Advertising
