How to advertise on OffShoreCorpTalk
There are two ways to advertise on our forums and each of them comes with specific and crystal clear rules, terms and conditions.
You can visit our direct advertising page in the menu and go through all the packages to figure out which one is more suitable for your product, service or business. We will review your advertising request in order to determine whether your business follows our rules. You can use the same page to buy the optimal advertising package – your campaign will begin as soon as it is approved.
It is important to know that you do not require a Mentor Group Gold subscription to advertise on the OffShoreCorpTalk forums. However, you must be registered on the forum in order to buy advertising slots because they usually go in the form of sticky threads. Therefore, you need an account in order to post the respective threads.
How advertising threads work
There are two types of advertising threads. The classic one involves starting a thread that will go sticky. It will show above non sticky threads and it will always be on the first page in the forums of your choice. There is a fixed fee and it is payable on a weekly basis. You will also require the Service Provider subscription to benefit from advertising threads.
While classic advertising threads will go sticky on forums, the so called sticky thread package is slightly different and allows users to choose the forums or categories they want their forums in too. Fees depend on the forums you choose – seek a free quote by getting in touch with the OffShoreCorpTalk administration.
