Ready to market your products and services on Explorer1.com? Just review and select one of the following options.

1) Basic Business Listing –  $5 to $15 per month based on listing options

Similar to a white page listing in a phonebook, we can add your business name, address, phone number and Web address to the appropriate category on Explorer1.com.   Please note that a Basic Business Listing must meet the following conditions:

a) A business must be listed in its designated category and location.  For greater visibility, consider purchasing premium advertising so your ad can be displayed on any page throughout Explorer1.com –  above the fold.

b)  A business must be an appropriate fit for Explorer1.com.   At our sole discretion, we will determine if a business meets our mission and does not conflict with our current partners or directly compete Explorer1.com.  Please note that we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.

c)  A business must agree to pay a nominal fee for a basic business listing. 
Fees range from $5 to $15 per month (paid annually) are based on the following three listing options:

        1) Business name with Web link, address and phone number = $5 per month
       2) Include a 25 word description with your listing = add $5 per month
       3) Include a 120 x 90 image with your listing = add $5 per month

Please note that a 12 month subscription is required.  Fees are billed on an annual basis.  As a bonus, a business listing that includes all three elements (business information, 25 word description, and image) will float toward the top of the alphabetic list of businesses.

According to Yahoo! research, Premium or Featured Advertising get more impressions and receive four times the "click throughs" compared to a basic, alphabetized text listings.  In addition to the increased visibility, you will also get:

a) Quick placement – If your featured listing is an appropriate fit for Expolorer1.com, it will be added to our site within 24 hours of payment.
