In addition, any additional information that is available to potential customers about your products can include a phone number and address where you can be reached.

No. If you have an ad on this site there is the potential for that many people to see your ad, similar to advertising in a print magazine.

How many people receive TheBlackMailer newsletter each month?

As of January 2000, over 1,600 people around the world have subscribed to TheBlackMailer.

How many people visit monthly?

This is a hard number to get, since it is very difficult to distinguish between new visitors and those who click around to various pages of the site. We can say that, on average, pages on this site are viewed about 100,000 times per month (as of 3/99).

Can I promote more than one product in the same ad?

Yes, using animated .gif files (which we can create for you) your ad can include a graphic that changes every few seconds.

Can all contact information be included in the ad, not just my email and homepage?

Yes, to cover all bases, we try to include email and homepage addresses, as well as a phone number, fax number and a mailing address.

Which ads get on homepage featured sponsor section?

Every few weeks (2-4) we rotate a different product from those in TheBlackMarketPlace to the Featured Sponsor Section on the home page to increase exposure of that product. Eventually, all products and services in TheBlackMarketPlace will be featured.

Will you allow any product or service to advertise here?

We reserve the right to determine, on a case by case basis, which products we will accept advertisements for.
