Featured offer or competition FAQs
What's the difference between a featured ad and a free basic listing?
Free basic listings are brief listings in submission order. Featured ads appear near the top of the page in a tinted box. They can include an image so you can add your logo or a photo to draw attention and help illustrate your offer or competition. They have more room for extended text allowing you to fully explain your offer or competition. Featured ads can also include a punchy headline and additional web addresses (e.g. for your Facebook/Twitter/blog). Featured ads also appear on Kidsguide's Facebook timeline and Twitter feed. Featured offers or competitions also appear in one issue of Kidsguide's e-newsletter.
In other words featured ads have a much higher profile to generate you more enquiries.
