You may have noticed that the ‘Latest Updates’ page on this site is more a Bull Terrier Blog that I update as and when I have something new to announce or release. However, while I am the one who updates it, I don’t want to be the only one who contributes to it – and hence I’d like to stress it is open for you and anyone else to use for their own needs if required.
What I mean is that if there is anything at all (Bull Terrier related obviously) you’d like to give news of as a blog post, then all you need do is send me the relevant information and I’ll add it for you. That could be absolutely anything, – news of a new litter, a missing or found Bull Terrier, Club news or Show news, PDF entry forms for download, help, advice, articles, even videos … the list is endless. If you want to get the message out there, I’m the very man for the job! By the way, I mentioned videos just there – I have set up a BTM video channel on Youtube so that anyone at all can have their Bull Terrier videos featured on there WITHOUT having to go to the trouble of creating their own Youtube account/channel etc.
But That’s Not All…
On this site you can download many of the featured parts that used to make up the previous magazine (Judging Critiques, Monthly Winners etc) – only in a different format. I naturally felt that I should aim to incorporate an advertising section as well, seeing as though that used to be a very popular part of Bull Terrier Monthly as was.
The way I’ve gone with all the other previous features is to make them single one-off downloadable files, so I felt the easiest and most straightforward option would be to offer advertisements in exactly the same way. However, taking the advertisements out of a magazine allows me a lot more options as to what I can offer – and as such opens up a lot more possibilities for you! I’ll give you an idea…
Previously, with the advertisements appearing in a printed magazine meant that they had to be A4 sized (297mm x 210mm). That is not now the case – I can now offer to produce advertisements from small bulletin sizes up to, well – whatever size you like, quality and size of photograph/s permitting.
Now this doesn’t really matter when viewing advertisements on screen, as all advertisements will simply be determined by the size of your monitor. But when I do you an advertisement, you will also receive a high quality ‘print-ready’ PDF file that you will be able to take to any Digital Printing company to print out a hard copy of it … and most printers can deal with anything up to A2 size (594mm x 420mm). Let’s just say that if you had a poster that size, framed it and stuck it on your wall – it would be very noticeable!
Here’s one I did for myself a while ago just to give you a bit of an idea, right-click here and ‘Save Target As’ (or browser alternative) to download it. Incidentally, this one prints out at A3 size (420mm x 297mm).
The cost for this type of advertisement is a standard £35 per advertisement, regardless of the size you require.
For that you get an advertisement/poster designed from scratch at any size you like up to A2 size (594mm x 420mm). The final approved work will be placed on this site and available to download permanently free of charge to anyone (PDF File). I’ll announce it via a new post on the main page, and I’ll also announce it to my e-mail list, BTM Facebook page and BTM Twitter page. This should ensure that it gets seen by a lot of people both quickly and over time. As I said previously, you will also receive a high quality ‘print-ready’ version yourself for the purpose of having a hard copy printed out.
Taking the advertisements out of a magazine also opens up the possibility of video advertising – basically an advertisement in video format, or promotional video as they’re usually called.
Supplied with any combination of photographs, text and video footage – I can produce a High Definition video alternative to the PDF advertisements – or indeed in addition to them should you wish? Again, for an example, look at the video on the ‘Magazine’ page, this was done entirely by me and should give you a bit of an idea of what I could produce for you.
The work involved in producing a video is more difficult and time consuming than that of a standard PDF advertisement, and hence they do cost more. The fee is £70 for a video of up to 3 minutes in length, with an additional £30 per minute thereafter – but 3 minutes really should be enough for most.
For your money you get a High Definition video produced from scratch. The final approved video will be placed on the BTM Youtube channel where anyone can view it. I will also make it available to download from this site, as well as supplying you with your own copy. As with the standard advertisements I’ll announce it via a new post and also notify those who follow BTM on Facebook and Twitter, as well as my own e-mail list.
If you’d like to take advantage of these services and would like me to add a blog post, a video to Youtube or produce either a PDF or video advertisement, all you need to do is contact me, give me an idea of what you require and we’ll take it from there. You can use the usual Bull Terrier Monthly e-mail address, or click on the ‘Contact’ link.
