For over a decade LongeCity has presented a bustling platform for discussion and information exchange on advanced life extension. As a non-profit org with the mission to conquer the blight of involuntary death we have consistently promoted grassroots science and advocacy projects by the international life extension community. Funding for these initiatives is raised in large part through donations, but also to some degree from advertisers.
Those choosing to advertise at LongeCity gain unique access and exposure to a dynamic, growing and committed community of life extension enthusiasts, and the goodwill of well-educated thought leaders in life extension science and advocacy. It is also a great way of 'giving back' something to the bigger cause of healthy life extension that many of our advertiser support.
There are different ways of placing an advertisement at LongeCity:
Ĝ Banner ads on top of a sub-forum -- the 'traditional' location and the most convenient place to associate with a theme discussed on the forums.
Ĝ Banner on the bottom of every page -- an easy way to show support for LongeCity across the board
Ĝ Banner between forum sections on the forum index -- the index is the common 'landing page' and central point of the LongeCity forums and the page receiving the most 'hits'
Ĝ Banner on right-hand column on forum index -- another way to feature on the index
Ĝ Rolling ad in the carousel on left-hand of forum -- this feature is not always in use, the equivalent would be another 'carousel' place where topical items are displayed at a common location
Ĝ Text ad on left-hand of forum -- A short piece of text/link that is visible prominently from any place anywhere on the page
Ĝ Individual thread -- A 'sponsored' thread ideal for discussing an advertiser's product range
Ĝ Individual subforum -- For a much boarder variant of 'individual thread'
Ĝ Featured article -- An article on the portal. To be effective and useful, his should be more than a simple advert and also contain some useful information about a topic relevant to LongeCity
Ĝ Associate link -- A 'featured' entry in our database of interesting links
Ĝ Discount for members -- A free form of advertising that generates significant exposure. Member discount codes can be shared at the restricted members forum or more sophisticated discount schemes can be devised.
Ĝ Sponsored item in 'thank you 'store' -- LongeCity has a unique system of rewarding volunteers with 'Thank You' points. These points can be exchanged for small gifts: a book voucher, a DVD... or perhaps a product from a valued sponsor.
Ĝ Mention in newsletter -- The LongeCity newsletter is send monthly to over 10.000 users with a live email address. Some of the above options may a free mention in the newsletter
Option exist on a monthly or longer basis. Discounts may be available for planning security.
Other opportunities for advertising exist. Please contact our Treasurer J. Shepard to discuss.
NB: There are a few things that advertising money cannot buy at LongeCity (please don't ask). Among these are 'privileged' status that exempts you from the forum user agreement (including the prohibition against 'viral' marketing), any right in how the site is run (you can become a Member and vote in referenda instead) and any content that appears as if it was coming from LongeCity without making it clear that such content was 'sponsored by'.
