Promotional tools for Members
Over the years, our members and ad posters have testified the benefits of using the promotional tools available on ikman. These provide the ad poster an advantage over regular ads on our listings. And these tools are:
The most recent feature on our list of promotional tools – Spotlight. This gives the ad a prominent spot among other ad listings. And in return demands immediate attention from viewers. Moreover, it allows the ad poster to upload up to 5 images. Thus, this tool is ideal for high-value products that deserve nothing less than premium treatment.
The Spotlight promotion is available for 3, 7 or 15 days at a price of Rs. 2,500, Rs. 3,500 and Rs. 5,000 respectively. We design our rates to help you plan your marketing tactics within affordable budgets. Tip: Post striking images for the carousel to get the best out of this tool.
2. Top Ads
Top Ads have been a timeless favourite among our advertisers. These ads appear in yellow, carry a “Top Ad” badge and are larger than the rest of the promotional tools. Moreover, these appear right below the Spotlight ad. Furthermore, this is pocket-friendly as it is available for 3, 7 or 15 days, priced at Rs. 600, Rs. 900 and Rs. 1,400 respectively. A random selection determines which ad among the total pool of TopAds we receive makes it to the top of the ad listing.
As the name implies, this promotional tool suits the needs of an ad poster who wants to make a quick sale. It’s easy to identify with its bright red marker, bearing the term “Urgent” on it. Furthermore, when viewers see this they immediately know the buyer is looking for a customer who doesn’t want to waste time. This way, be sure to receive more inquiries from serious customers. This too, is available in three options to choose from. You only have to pay Rs. 300, Rs. 500 and Rs. 700 for 3, 7 or 15 days respectively.
4. Daily Bump Up
An interesting promotional tool to nudge your way up the ad listings! A Daily Bump Up is an automatic method to raise your ad to the top of the list every day, for any number of days you choose. This promotion is available for 3, 7 or 15 days at a price of Rs. 800, Rs. 1,200 and Rs. 1,800 respectively. The time you purchase or decide to apply the promotion matters for this tool. It will decide which Bump Up ad will appear at the top of the listings.
An authorized dealer receives the benefits of all the above promotional tools for an unimaginable price. It covers a reach of 3.3 million. Isn’t that a massive cost saving?
