Benefits of Advertising

MartialTalk is a great place to promote your products and services. We are heavily indexed by search sites such as Google. We are a great place to get the message out quickly when you have important news to share with your customers, and faster and easier than updating your own web site.
Advertisers on MartialTalk get:

  • Forum banner advertisement with link to web site
  • Ability to start unlimited threads in the ad forums.
  • Permission to promote their business with new product announcements and press releases on the forum
  • Complimentary 1 year Supporting Member status.

Rates are per month. Minimum commitment is 3 months.
Discounts are available for 6, 9 and 12 month commitments.
Placements are usually exclusive, so that only your ads will be shown in that position during your contracted time.
