Banner Display Advertising



Our Dealer Banner Adverts can be targeted to visitors who live in your state, or who are seeking firearms being sold in your state. There is little point in serving up advertising to customers who live in New South Wales when your gun shop in located in Western Australia. It is far better to focus your advertising on your target audience, which is what we endeavour to do at Used Guns Mart.  Naturally, if you are seeking an Australia wide audience, we can accommodate this preference also.


Banner Advertisers are given a statistics email report each month. The report will show how many times your banner was display to your targeted audience, and more importantly, how many clicks resulted from your banner ads. This can be most helpful in deciding where to spend your advertising dollars.
