    Flat Fee Graphical Advertising

    Arizona Edventures offers a combination of simple, convenient advertising options to suit even the most limited budget. (We know what itís like to be a start-up home business!) From single ads to multi-page advertising campaigns Ė the choice is yours, all for one low flat fee.

    The following advertising opportunities are currently available, for the introductory prices shown below:

    468x60 Top-of-Page Premium Banner: $120.00 per year
    This is our most prominent ad. Its "above the fold" location increases greatly the value of this banner. Even better, itís the very first image our visitors see as the page loads. Limited availability, so get yours now while you can! Itís a great deal! (Available on Knowledge House pages but NOT on Arizona Edventures pages. Our Christian-Net affiliate is the default banner used, but any of them can be replaced with your own ad.)

    120x600 Vertical Skyscraper: $108.00 per year
    Running along the right-hand column, its impressive size spans a large area making it visible to users who are scrolling up and down through information-packed pages. (See sample in right-hand column.)

    468x60 Top-of-Page Classic Banner: $96.00 per year
    This is the most popular sized banner for general advertising purposes, placed in a highly noticeable position just below the Leaderboard and centered above an article or other page text. (See sample at top of page.) A 234x60 half banner in this location would be half price at $48.00/year.

    120x240 Vertical Tower: $84.00 per year
    Cost-effective alternative to the skyscraper. (See sample in right-hand column.)

    120x200 Vertical Tower: $72.00 per year
    Less expensive version of the vertical banner. (See sample in right-hand column.)

    468x60 Bottom-of-Page Classic Banner: $60.00 per year
    Effective brand name promotion and click-through rates for less cost than a top-of-the-page banner of the same size, conveniently placed at the end of an article or other text for readers to click on when they are done reading the page. (See sample at bottom of page.) A 234x60 half banner in this location would be half price at $30.00/year.

    125x125 Square Banner: $48.00 per year
    This square banner is the perfect size, not too big and not too small. Itís not too expensive either! (See sample in right-hand column.)

    120x90 Large Button: $36.00 per year
    Yes, thatís one full year of advertising for only $36! A well-designed button can deliver an effective message at an affordable price. (See sample in right-hand column.)

    120x60 Small Button: $24.00 per year
    An extremely economical way of getting on-line exposure. At this low price even the smallest business can afford to advertise on one or more pages! (See sample in right-hand column.)

    Special Introductory Offer: Sign up now and your low introductory ad price is good for a whole year regardless of how much our page hits increase!

    Demographics and Statistics

    Flat Fee Textual Ads

    If you don't have a graphical ad, a text ad of an equivalent size and shape may be substituted for the same price. (See examples at right.) Simple text ads can be quite effective. If you're not sure how to do it, we can help make one for you. Please send us your text, tell us what size ad you want, the desired font and background colors, and we will try to match your specifications as closely as possible.

    Perhaps you qualify for a FREE text link! Scroll all the way down for details.

    Graphic Requirements

    All of the above ad sizes are given in pixel width and height. For example, the Large Button has a width of 120 pixels and a height of 90 pixels. The Banner Ad is 468 pixels wide by 60 pixels high. Size comparisons are shown on this page.

    We accept ads with a file extension of gif, jpg, or png. Please e-mail your graphic as a file attachment with your request for advertising, or provide the URL where we can obtain the image, so we can verify that your ad is of the correct size and type.

    All images will be copied to our server for the life of the ad.

    Ads are a maximum 30K in size unless you host the image.

    A minimal amount of animation is acceptable as long as it does not exceed the size limit. Audio ads are not allowed.

    Graphics need to be clearly visible at 40 x 40 pixel or 60 x 60 pixel resolution. Simple graphics show up best, and if you have a logo on your website, that would be a good choice.

    Your ad will be linked to the web page of your choice in a new browser window, or to your email address (specially coded to hide it from spam bots).

    We reserve the right to alter and amend those advertisements not accurately meeting the Graphic Requirements.

    Multiple Ads

    Interested in advertising on more than one page at the same time? At these low prices, you can!

    Multiple ads may be all the same image or different images in any combination of sizes. This is good for businesses who offer more than one product or service related to various subject areas.

    Be creative! You can display the same ad on several pages, up to three separate images on a single page, or a completely different ad on each page. Remember, your ads will be more effective if each is matched to appropriate content. For larger companies that cover diverse subject areas, page targeting can greatly improve click-through rates.

    Why buy multiple ads? Imagine the impact of having your ad on several pages of a magazine. It's the same with websites. Consumers need to get used to seeing your ad before they will act on it. In fact, marketing experts say people need to hear or see the same message at least six times before it motivates them to action.

    Ad Placement

    Paid ads are strategically positioned on the TOP, BOTTOM, and RIGHT of the web site.

    You may select the pages on which you want your ad(s) to run.

    Your ad will be in a fixed position, meaning that it will always appear in the same spot and will not be rotated among other ads.

    Right-column paid ads will be placed on a first-come, first-served basis from the top down, above any Google or Amazon affiliate ads that may already be there. So donít delay if you want to get a prominent position toward the top of a particular page.

    Advertising space per page is subject to availability, of course. Some popular pages may have no more ad space available on them. We will let you know by return e-mail if that is the case before we run your ad. If one page is full, there are hundreds of others to choose from.

    You can advertise graphically on any page of the site except the home page, our own exclusive product pages, site management and ďAbout UsĒ pages.

    Ad placement is not available in the left navigation column of any page.

    All ad requests will be reviewed and are subject to approval before placement on site.

    Ad Policy and Guidelines

    Total cost of a twelve-month ad run must be pre-paid in full and is non-refundable.

    Ads can be updated and changed if needed at no additional charge. If you want to move your ad to a different page, you may do that, too.

    All URLs must be active at the time the ad is submitted. Your site content will be checked to be sure it is appropriate.

    Ads must be family-friendly and should be of interest to our site's visitors. We reserve the right to exclude any ad or advertiser that we feel is inappropriate.

    Annual fees are non-refundable. However, in the rare circumstance that an ad may need to be terminated by us for some reason that is not the fault of the advertiser, we will credit the buyer proportionately.

    There is NO guarantee of any number of clicks your ad might get. This means that you will receive no refund if the ad campaign does not create enough sales for you. Please check your own logs to see how much traffic you get from

    All Advertisers assume the responsibility of abiding by the terms and conditions of our Ad Policy.


    Arizona Edventures strives to maintain a high-quality, family-oriented, child-safe site which is reflected in the integrity of its sponsors and advertisers. If we feel that your product or service is inappropriate, we will not add your listing or ad to our page and will return your payment if one was made.

    No adult entertainment, matchmaking, gambling, illegal or offensive stuff. No ads that are totally irrelevant to our site's content, like cars or dieting. (An ad for luxury cruise vacations would probably not be accepted, while an educational field trip destination would be.)

    While the owner/webmaster operates from a conservative Christian worldview, secular companies are welcome to advertise as long as they are not anti-Christian.

    Ads cannot resemble any Windows dialog boxes, error messages, or otherwise mislead the user.

    Ads cannot contain graphics that simulate interactivity (e.g. drop down menus, search boxes, etc.) without the functionality actually existing.

    Please note that we reserve the right to refuse any advertisement for any reason.

    Our pricing and advertisement rules may change at any time.

    How to Order

    Itís quick and easy! To order your advertisement by e-mail, simply select the ad style and quantity you want. E-mail with your selection and preferred page (first-come first-served).

    Please include:

  • Company Name and Address
  • Contact Name and E-mail Address
  • Ad size(s)
  • Quantity
  • URL(s) of the Arizona Edventures page(s) where you would like your ad to appear.
  • Alternate page choice(s) if your first choice is filled.
  • If you do not give a specific page link, we will place your ad where we think it will fit best.
  • URL for the ad. We will copy your ad onto our server from this URL, or you may e-mail a copy of your ad to us.
  • URL to send visitors. When people click your ad, they will go to this URL. It may be either your home page, or a specific page on your site. If you don't have a website, it will link to your e-mail address (specially coded to hide it from spam bots).

    After receiving this information we will verify availability, acceptability, and then upload the ad for your approval. We will e-mail an invoice to you for the total amount due. If for some reason we are unable to place your ad, you will be notified at the email address you supply.

    Thank you for considering Arizona Edventures as an advertising partner!


    You can feel secure knowing that we use the trusted name of PayPal for all transactions. However, you do not need to have a PayPal account. PayPal takes checks and major credit cards without having an account.

    As soon as your ad is accepted, we will respond via e-mail with our PayPal link. Your ad will be inserted upon completion of payment.

    Itís easy to pay for your ad securely via PayPal, using any major credit card. But if you prefer, you can pay by snail mail using certified check, money order, business check, or personal check. Payment can be made out and sent to the address shown in the e-mail that you receive.

    All rate information and payment is in U.S. funds.



    If you have a print ad, photograph or other image in the correct format (height/width ratio) that you would like to use we can scan the ad for you. We will scan the ad, convert it to JPG format and upload it to a special test page where you can view it before it is posted to our site. This is for a straight scan only, and does not include any manipulation other than converting the scan to JPG. There is no charge for this service. Sorry, we do not currently have the resources to prepare ads other than the scanning described above.

    Custom Ads

    Do you have an ad in a different shape, size, or format? Feel free to contact us at for accommodating your special advertising needs.


    Text Links

    As always, text links (company/site name and description of 30 words or less) are FREE on our Homeschool Resources and Arizona Resources pages, IF your services or publications relate to the page content, and IF the page is currently open to free text links. In the future, only merchants with affiliate programs or merchants who pay for graphical advertising may be able to get a text link. Note that text link descriptions may be edited for space. If you are accepted for a free text link, we would appreciate a reciprocal link but it's not required.

    Link Exchange

    E-mail your text link to and let's swap!

    Banner Ad Swap

    A nice way to help each other. You advertise with us and we advertise with you!


    Want to trade curriculum, educational products, subscriptions or memberships for advertisements? We like to think outside the box and are always open to unique advertising alternatives. For example, we will post a review of your book along with a link to your site if you also review one of our books and post it with our link on your site. E-mail with your proposal for our consideration.
