Trade Me Targets Small Businesses

Trade Me Targets Small Businesses

Trade Me (www.trademe.co.nz) – New Zealand’s largest person-to-person auction site – now allows small business to buy advertising online. The new functionality allows smaller businesses to “get their feet wet” by buying smaller chunks of banner advertising online within the Trade Me site.

Advertisers can logon and buy between 2,000 and 10,000 banner impressions, upload their banner, and pay online by credit card. The process allows the purchaser to specify the targeting criteria, specifying which Trade Me categories to show the banners within and how many times each user should see the banner.

“We generate over 3 million page views per month – so we have plenty of space to accommodate the smaller advertisers, as well as larger campaigns.” Managing Director Sam Morgan says. “We think that by lowering the barriers to entry, and allowing advertisers to define their own targeting criteria we will be able to increase our ad revenues.” Morgan says.

“We have a highly targeted offering – advertisers can buy 2000 banners that will only show to users within the DVD category a maximum of 3 times – only during business hours. We expect this level of targeting to provide good click-through rates for advertisers.”
