Advertising Policy

Recently the Beading Times had 22,217  unique visitors a month.  Our audience is very targeted, consisting of beaders and jewelry designers. 

Because our audience is very focused, all advertised products or services must be targeted to beaders, bead makers or jewelry makers.  If we receive numerous complaints from several readers about an advertiser, an anonymous member of our staff will conduct a transaction with that vendor.  If the complaints appear to be well founded, we will quit running that company's advertisement.  Monies paid in advance will not be refunded to those advertisers that do not meet our standards of quality products and customer service.

Advertising Rates:

Design your own ad or let our experienced layout people design it for you.  Design layout free.

The Beading Times offer three different types of advertising:- all priced at less than .01 per reader!

Links and Resources Page
In September 2010, which is a slow month, we had 22,217 unique visitors a month.  If even a small percentage of that number sent us 5.00 a year we would be fine.  But I am not asking for money for nothing.  I am selling advertising on the Links&Resources page for 5.00 a line for a whole year.  You can get return from your bucks by just putting your website link on the page.  Add as many lines as you want, but each line will cost you 5.00 a year.  This is a great return on your investment as it would turn into .000225 cents for each unique visitor.  Some of you without websites may just wish to send us 5.00 to be listed as a sponsor.  The listings will be in the following categories:  beads, beading supplies, instructions, jewelry, religious articles, and accessories.  To sign up, just email me your requested advertising at .   Tell me how you want to pay and I'll send an invoice once your ad is approved.  Thanks in advance for your support.
