Target Precisely Who You Want!

Phantis allows you to target users selectively, based on the country of origin. For example, if you wish to target only users from Greece, or Australia, or USA, now you have that option! Or you can combine selectively; target only users from Greece and Cyprus; target only users from North America, etc. It's a dream come true for your marketing department!

Phantis helps you zero in on your target market by offering other targeting options such as:

  • Target by particular days (i.e. banner appears only every Monday, Tuesday.)
  • Target by hour (i.e. banner appears from 12:00-5:00PM)
  • Target by browser (i.e. banners appears only to Netscape users)
  • Target by operating system (i.e. banner appears only to Windows 95 users)
  • Target by section of interest (i.e. banner appears in Computers and Internet category of Phantis)

We are currently working on developing higher targeted advertising programs (demographic targeting, 'cookies,' etc.), and different other sponsorship programs.

The clickover rate (the number of times somebody clicks on an advertising banner over the number of impressions for that banner) is currently higher than the average industry standard!

The advertisers are given real time access to monitor the performance of their ads. At any point during any day, you can see how many impressions your banner has received, and how many times people have clicked on it. That way your are flexible to adjust at any point the parameters that determine the exposure that your banner receives.

Even if you need a customized advertising campaign, we will work closely together with you. From conception to implementation our experienced advertising staff will help you establish an advertising campaign that, as we say, 'will knock their socks off!'

Advertising banners should be scheduled 1-2 weeks in advance, prior to the date for which you wish your campaign to begin.
