New Featured Ads
Today we are launching the ability to promote your ads on UK Audio Mart
. The first is called Featured Ads
. A Featured ad is shown as a graphical ad at the top of the main homepage, at the top of the Browse All page, and at the top of the category (eg Speakers). Here's how Featured Ads look:
Featured ads will stay on the homepage for 5 days, and remain at the top of the category for 30 days. They will also be listed in our weekly newsletter that is sent out to 10,000 audiophile buyers and collectors. This is a powerful way to ensure that tens of thousands of buyers see your prioritized ad.
This is one of a series of Paid
features we'll be introducing to UKAM over the course of the year as we expand our tools to help users get the most out of the site and continue to connect qualified buyers with sellers.New Highlighted Ads
The second feature is called Highlighted Ads. This feature will highlight your ads in all pages where they are listed including:
- Highlighting in the homepage
- Highlighting in the search results
- Highlighting in the browse all page
- Highlighting in Grid and list modes
Here's how Highlighting looks:
And in grid mode on a mobile device:How to Upgrade Your Ads
You can upgrade your ad as you are posting it. At the bottom of the posting screen look for the upgrade box right above the Place Ad button.Upgrading Existing ads
You can also upgrade your existing ads. To do so, go to your ads list page
and look for the large button beside "Place Ad". This will let you upgrade multiple ads at once. From that page, you can also find the ad you want on your list, and click the down arrow for the upgrade option.
Finally, if you visit an ad directly, you can see a button to upgrade the ad right from within the ad.
We hope you enjoy these new features which will give you more leads and buyers while also helping to support UKAM in our continued efforts to improve the site and community.
