This post talks about the process of advertising on If there is a topic not covered here, please feel free to send us a note from the Contact Form.

Advertising with FAND can be done a number of ways beyond the creation of the Ad itself. here is where we explain some of the details on that process.

Types of Promotion/Advertising
You have several ways to extend the impact and exposure of the ads you place on FANB, including:

    - Featuring Ads
    - Boosting Ads
    - Category Banner Ads
    - Sponsoring a Category
    - Branded Categories

Featuring Ads
Ads can be featured (Shown on the home page and right column) for a number of days equal to the period you choose. This adds additional exposure for the ad across the site and drives more traffic to your ad itself.

Featuring an ad is done from within the ad itself, open any given ad and choose the length of time you would like to have the ad Featured. You will then be taken to Paypal to complete your purchase. Once completed, the software will automatically place the ad into feature rotation. In the event there are more featured ad requests than spaces available, the software will randomly select the featured ad to display each time the page is loaded.

Once a period has expired for an ad to be featured, you may choose to feature it again. If an ad expires before that end of it's featured period time, that remaining time is lost. If you re-list the ad, you will need to repurchased a Feature for the new listing.

Boosting Ads
Ads within categories are usually listed based on when they are created, with the most recent ads being displayed first. Boosting an ad in essence resets the ad to be listed as the most recent ad. This is best for categories with a larger number of ads to avoid your ad being lost in a large catalog of offerings. You may Boost your ad as many times as you would like during the ad's run (each boost is a separate charge). a Boost does not guarantee a top of category listing as following the boost, new ads will come in above the boosted ad.

Boosting an ad is a one time $5 fee (as of 12/4/2020).
