    Banner ads

    Banner advertising can bring prospective customers directly to your business, products or services in just one click. The assumption that your clients will automatically find your site - just because it's there - is dangerous thinking.

    A prominent and compelling banner ad is a very cost-effective method of driving customers to your website. It also builds brand awareness through repeated exposure, particularly when accompanied by regular posts on the forum. As a promotional and branding tool, banner ads are priceless.

    • There are four positions on the forum that you can purchase to display banners to promote your business or venture (Positions 1 thru 4). These banners show throughout the entire forum, including the private messaging pages.

    • Each banner submitted is set in rotation. Should one of our existing 'affiliate banners' compete with what you wish to advertise we will gladly remove it while you advertise with us - just ask!

    • You are welcome to purchase advertising in just one position - or as many as you wish.

    • Banners are not exclusive to forum Members - you can book them regardless. You can also change the artwork at any time, subject to a minimum of two working days notice. However, changes can normally be made the same day.

    • Image types accepted are; .jpeg, .gif, .png and Flash. Please be aware that 'Flash' ads are not recommended as they may not display on Apple devices and on certain equipment that is not Flash enabled; this is out of our control. It is politely requested that all animated banners are kept to the smallest file size possible and that consideration is given to members who may have photo-sensitive epilepsy.

    • Administrative staff reserve the right to refuse advertising that competes with UK Business Labs or is otherwise objectionable. We also reserve the right to refuse images - please keep it tasteful!

    Positions refer to the red areas in the image below. Dimensions required are also shown. :)

    Position - Cost - Period.

    1 - £60 - 30 days
    2 - £45 - 30 days
    3 - £30 - 30 days
    4 - £25 - 30 days


    Exclusive slots:

    Subject to existing/scheduled bookings you may reserve a slot for your banner exclusively. Please contact for exclusive rates and availability.

    Minimum Booking:

    Minimum booking is 30 days which will secure the extant rates at the time of booking. The Admin reserves the right to change pricing at any time but rates are formally reviewed every quarter (End Mar, Jun, Sep, Dec).

    Unlike other sites there is no 'cost per thousand' (CPM) impressions, pay-per-click (PPC) or delivery limits; all of which can cost you several hundred pounds or more per month. At UK Business Labs, once your banner is up, it's up - which could amount to hundreds of thousands of impressions; all at one flat-rate cost!


    File sizes for banners should be kept to a minimum and ideally no larger than 150Kb. Don't have a banner? For a small outlay, we can fix that. There are also a fair few graphic designers who are members here and they would appreciate your custom.

    How to book:

    If you wish to take advantage of the exposure UKBL can bring you, please enquire on admin@ukbusinesslabs.co.uk with your requirements.

    Please state:

    • Position required.
    • Number of days required (30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180, 360 etc).
    • How you wish to pay (PayPal*, BACS, Debit or Credit Card).
    • Please attach your artwork (Flash files must be set to open in a new browser window).
    • Web address/URL for the link.

    Website stats are available on enquiry.
