Web Advertising

Are you an APS Member with a web page offering philatelic products or services? Why not advertise it! APS provides ad links to web pages established by our members and subscription to this service places your ad on many APS web pages.

We now provide more exposure for the ads - they appear on more than 150 pages within the APS web site as well as on the full listing of Web Advertisers which is linked with all the ads (see the ad on this page in the right-hand column).

How Web Ads Display on STAMPS.ORG:

Web ads placed on the American Philatelic Society website (STAMPS.ORG) are managed by our proprietary advertising engine. This means that advertisements are displayed in a rotating, random order on the various pages of the web site. The site is comprised of more than 1500 pages and advertising is dispersed throughout many of these pages to maximize visibility to site visitors.

This does mean that, if you are an advertiser, you may not be able to see your ad immediately. If you visit a page of the website with advertising displayed, you may be able to refresh that page often enough for your ad to display. However, if your ad is displaying on another page to another user, the ad may not immediately display for you. Our ad engine is designed to equitably distribute impressions (the presentation of any given ad on the website) across the site and to maximize the exposure of ads based on the website’s traffic patterns.

 

Web Advertising Guidelines:

You must be an APS Member. (All members of the APS do subscribe to, and are governed by the APS Code of Ethics.)

On-line advertisements are subject to APS approval; we will review the content of the web page that is being advertised.

Links to member sites do not imply endorsement by the APS of any of the information or products offered on those pages or via subsequent links to other pages.

Advertisements measure 200 x 120 pixels and offer an opportunity for two images per ad to be rotating in and out on one advertisement! That means you can receive 2 blocks measuring 200 x 120 to place your advertisement.

All web ads are housed in an "Official Web Sponsor" frame.

APS will create the ad for you (we will contact you in regards to specific text, graphics, etc.) or you may create your own advertisement in .jpg or .gif format. If you submit an ad graphic, it will then be placed in the web sponsor frame like all other ads.

If you create your own ads please note it will be set inside the "APS Web Sponsor" frame. The entire image itself is 200 pixels wide by 120 pixels high (the inside ad area is 198 pixels wide by 103 pixels high).

 

Ad Tracking:

We now provide tracking so you know how many times your ad has been viewed and clicked through our site.

 

Costs:

Stamps.org offers Pay Per Year advertising with a discounted rate for all APS Dealer Members. This service level offers unlimited impressions through year-long exposure and quarterly reporting on both impressions and clicks received through your ads. Web Sponsor advertisers are positioned on numerous pages throughout the website and have the option of up to two different ad designs.

Per Year Rates:

Unlimited number of clicks

$240 per year for Dealer Members
$300 per year for regular APS member
