advertise your business with us

Benefits of advertising on the Cromhall Media websites:

  • Focus: our websites are centred on specific towns, areas and villages, so you can target the right audience, whether that's one village, or most of South Gloucestershire.
  • A receptive audience: our users are active, “up for it” people, committed to their communities, and full of enthusiasm. Doesn't that sound like the sort of customers you'd like to reach?
  • It's cost-effective: with no paper, print or distribution overheads, we keep our prices low.
  • Flexibility: the sites are available 24/7 so we can start and stop your advertising when it suits you.
  • A tailored fit: Not ready for a paid ad? – have a free listing, and upgrade when you're ready. Want something bigger than standard? - let's talk!
  • Ongoing support: a consistent presence builds awareness and confidence, so we run offers and competitions for our advertisers to raise their profile

    free listing

    Example of free listing

    We offer a free listing to businesses in the area, so even if you're not ready to advertise in earnest, you still won't miss out. A free listing includes your business name, web link and contact details.

    As we want to keep our directories as relevant as possible to each local area, we normally limit free listings to one website.

    text ad

    Example of text ad

    An enhanced text ad is a cost-effective way to promote your business and let people know what you offer.

    Stand out from the free ads by including a paragraph of information about what you offer, plus text ads appear above the free listings.

    display ad

    Example of display ad

    Display ads are graphic panels that allow you to include images and more information. Not only will your ad appear on its directory page, but it will take turns in appearing in strategic positions all over the site. Your ad can be a clickable link, taking visitors to a feature page, event detail page, or your own website.

    We can design and create your ad for you from a brief, logo or any artwork you use.

    Display ads are 240x120 pixels, and we aim for a pleasing, simple style. We won't carry garish or animated ads.

    A text ad is included when you buy a display ad.

    sidebar ad

    Example of sidebar ad

    Sidebar ads are smaller than regular display ads (125x125 pixels), but they more than make up for this by appearing on just about every page on the website, giving you a much greater number of impacts per visitor. There are only a limited number of spaces for sidebar ads available.

    As with display ads, your sidebar ad can be linked - when a visitor clicks on an ad, they will be taken to your website or feature page.

    A text ad is included when you buy a sidebar ad.


    Example of banner

    Banners (824x120 pixels) appear at the top of key pages for maximum impact, and can be used to sponsor a section of the website of your choice. Banners can appear in rotation, but there are only a limited number of spaces available. They cost from £124 per month, per site, with discounts available for multiple sites and longer periods of time.

    As with other graphic ads, your banner can be linked - when a visitor clicks on it, they will be taken to your website or feature page.

    A text ad is included when you buy a banner ad.

    job vacancies

    Looking to recruit? We offer text adverts consisting of around 50 words and contact details for £20/month.

    Need a bigger splash? Add a display advert graphic for an extra £20/month or a sidebar graphic at an extra £40/month.

    To post an advert, simply email us the information at .

    We'll send you a draft to approve along with an invoice, and the advert goes live on receipt of payment.

    feature page

    If you've more information to get across than will fit in a simple ad, we also offer feature pages - effectively a one-page website for you - as an additional option that can be added to (and linked from) display and sidebar ad packages.

    Your feature page can include photos, logos and maps, and we can also provide a shortcut web address in the format that you can publicise via your own stationery and promotional material.
