Advertising in Quarks

****UPDATE JULY 14TH 2008****

Every 12-18 months Quarks updates its active desktop - the first thing that all customers see as they begin their session - and that time is now! This represents a unique advertising opportunity, especially to advertisers looking to drive targetted web traffic. To maximise impact, and to keep the desktop simple, fresh and easy to use, there are an absolute maximum of four sponsored ads available. These could be a banner ad or creative link complete with rollover text. Your ad will then be seen by ALL vistors at ALL stores at the beginning of ALL sessions as well as having pride of place on the new internal portal page launching shortly. This is obviously done on a first come first served basis and each advertiser will be guaranteed exclusivity in their catergory. Contact Jason Deane on 0118 9782229 or via email on jasondeane@msn.com if you would like to discuss this opportunity in more detail
