Effective October 1, 2009, Shadowville.com will no longer be accepting new advertisers who offer competing products and services against Shadowville such as beat selling websites.
You could advertise your link or product to these listeners as an affordable and effective way to promote your album, an artist or group, label, music site, graphic or web design service, and much more while gaining maximum exposure for a low price (click here for larger budgets).
Our sponsorship and advertisement program is like no other. We offer the opportunity to embed your message or announcement directly into our listing of beats. This guarantees that visitors will read your message as they browse and listen to music on our website. The impact rate is extremely high.
Why should I get a Sponsored Spot?
A Sponsored Spot looks very similar to a beat listing on our site, which guarantees that visitors will read your message or advertisement. It is inexpensive, effective, and has an extremely high impact rate. Because the Sponsored Spot must look like a beat listing, we only allow a maximum limit of 200 characters and 4 lines of text.
Where do Sponsored Spots appear?
They appear on the front page along with beats that get added to the website (see screenshot above). As beats get added, your Sponsored Spot will be shuffled down. We update our beats at a pace where your Sponsored Spot will always retain maximum exposure and at least for three days on the front page.
Why don’t Sponsored Spots remain at the top of the listing at all times?
Visitors often become “ad-blind” after seeing that advertisements appear at the same place every time. Sponsored Spots are shuffled down as new beats are added in order to keep visitors constantly viewing your message. We guarantee that your Sponsored Spot will remain on the first page for a minimum of three days before being shuffled to the second page.
How long does it take for a Sponsored Spot to appear?
Once a request is sent and payment is made, we will review your content for a Sponsored Spot within 24 hours. However it may take a bit longer (up to 30 days) if there is an already existing Sponsored Spot from another advertiser as we don’t allow two Sponsored Spot ads to appear on the same page in order to maximize efficiency. Sponsored Spot ads are approved for live display on a first-come, first-serve basis, and there can only be one Sponsored Spot ad on one page at the same time. Some basic editing for grammatical or typographical errors may be performed. Once approved, your content will immediately appear on our sites as a Sponsored Spot. If a request is rejected, you will be informed and your payment will be refunded within 2-3 business days. Erotic, adult, sexual, racist, and illegal advertisements will be rejected without refund.
How long do Sponsored Spots last for?
A Sponsored Spot is active for 7 days and then automatically deleted. They are not automatically renewed. You must resubmit a new request each time you want to have a Sponsored Spot.
What if the site goes down?
In the unforseeable or uncontrollable event in which the website goes down or is being updated for maintenance, we will reimburse the duration of your Sponsored Spot for the time the site was unavailable to public visitors.
What kind of payments do you accept?
We accept payments via Paypal, including credit card and eCheck. Payment must be cleared in order for us to review your submitted content.
What kind of content am I allowed to submit?
You are strongly encouraged to submit content related to music or hip hop in order to target the type of audience that visits the Shadowville Productions site. Adult or sexual advertisements will not be accepted and no refund will be issued.
How much does it cost?
A Sponsored Spot costs $49.99 for 7 days.
