Forum Advertising Information

What is it all about?
Companies in the optical sector now have the option to advertise on and by doing so can display a tab link leading to their website. Text and destination link can be changed monthly promoting different products/offers/etc.
Advertisers are also more free to respond to forum member's posts about their products/services where relevant.

What is the point?
Well, it is advertising with a twist. A minimum of 50% of the revenue generated will go to a vision charity which will be chosen by forum members in a yearly poll.

What happens to the remaining revenue?
The rest will go towards site costs, e.g. hosting, maintenance, development, promotion etc.

Will anything change?
Apart from a few extra coloured tab links, no. Advertisers have no say in matters related to the forum other than their advert. Advertisers will however have more freedom to post about their products/services on the forum, responding to forum member's posts where relevant etc. As it currently stands such promotion is only allowed if it is a small minority of a member's total posts.

Stats: per month average gets over 7000 unique visitors, over 22 000 visits, over 280 000 page views (ad logo would appear on every page).

Are you interested in advertising on the UK's no.1 forum for optometry professionals?

Alternatively, we send an email to all members once or twice per year - if you would like your company website/product to be included in this mailshot this is also possible for a small fee. Forum advertisers automatically get included in these with a link to their website.
We can also offer space for a rectangular picture banner ad that sits at the top of all pages, for 30 days (example of possible banner locations).

Please send an email to for further information.
