Advertising

Swip Alot maintains websites, apps, and social media groups across Florida for residents to advertise. Our network is broken down into county, city, or regional sites, all targeted towards a specific area of the state. Everyone has the ability to use our Classified Advertising or our Facebook groups for free. Sell an item, promote your business, announce a show, and more.

We also offer paid advertising opportunities across our network. You can purchase different types of add-ons for your classifieds, or you can place your graphics in high visibility areas of our websites. Please read the options below to find the perfect solution for your advertising needs.

Please note, the advertising options listed below require graphics provided by you. We will resize them to fit the spaces we have if need be, but we will not create them from scratch. If you are in need of graphics, we recommend using Fiverr. You can find a digital artist there to create your logos and other graphics, starting at just $5.

Facebook Advertising

Advertising in our Facebook Groups is a free service. You may place your own ad at any time just by visiting the group page, clicking the Join button, and then by making a normal post. The rules for our Facebook Groups follow the Facebook Commerce Policy. Group rules are posted in each group, and can be found on our website.

For a listing of our local Facebook groups, please visit the Facebook Groups page on each of our websites or apps. To see our complete listing of Facebook Groups, visit our Group Links page.

Classified Advertising

Classified Advertising on the Swip Alot websites and apps is also a free service. For a fee, we offer add-on services to enhance your classified advertising.

A ‘Featured Ad’ will run in multiple places throughout the website and apps. You will see them on the main page, the listings page, most static pages, and the category page to match your listing. These ads run for 5 days. The ‘Bump-Up’ feature allows you to bring up your post to the top of the ‘Newest Listings’ and ‘Category’ pages. This is useful when your ad has been pushed off the main page by newer ads. Bumps are good for one use only.

All classified options are 100% automated. There are 3 packages available, and you can purchase them through the Swip Alot Shop. After purchase, you may activate the features from your account dashboard.

Local Advertising

Local Advertising runs your banner ad across our site in a 125×125 banner. You’ll find the Locals Ads space on almost every page of our website, and in specific places in our apps. They run in a slot with 3 other Local Ads, which gives a nice splash to every page. Local Ads are limited to businesses operating within one county away from the city in the website title.

Locals Ads are $20 per month. They run 30 days, and are in rotation with any other local ads that have been submitted. There are 16 spaces available per website, which gives you a one-in-four pages impression.

Please contact us for more information regarding Local Advertising. You can reach us via the Contact Page on our website, by phone at 904-834-9799, by e-mail at advertising@swipalot.com, or on our Advertising Facebook Page.

Google Advertising

Google Advertising plays a big role in our site and our apps. We utilize Google Admob and Google Ads, by means of a Google AdSense account. Our website displays ads from the Google AdWords site, and our Android and iPhone app show ads from Google Admob.

Advertising with this method on our network requires you to have your own Google Ads account, which you can get by visiting this site. Google offers various means of help getting the account set-up and functioning if you need it. Once you’re going, you’ll be able to target your ads to match our site visitors. You’ll also be able to advertise on our apps using the AdMob functionality of Google Ads.

Placement sizes on our apps and websites vary. We do use both Responsive and Fixed Size ads. The primary Fixed sizes we use are 300×250, 200×200, and 720×90. We do recommend using Fiverr for help in getting your graphics and advertisements professionally built.
