Advertising Policy

Last Updated: October 14, 2018

Our Advertising Policy provides guidance on what types of Advertisement content we allow. When Advertisers place an order, each Ad is reviewed against these policies.

On our website we display Advertisement (further called “Ad” or “Ads”) as images/pictures with or without text-lines. If text-lines accompany an Ad image, the text-lines typically appear directly below the image. Note that images may contain integrated text themselves.

Our type of Ads are divided into Featured Items and Featured Articles.

Featured Items are Reference Ads (with a picture [depending on the location], title, and subtext) visible on all our website’s pages and posts, which may link out directly to any relevant Internet Address (URL), might it be your website’s homepage, any other page of your Website, or Social Media pages, and so on.

Featured Articles are Reference Ads (with a picture [depending on the location], title, and subtext) visible on all our website’s pages and posts. In contrast to a Featured Item, these Reference Ads link to a (unique content) article written and edited together with you, optimized for Search Engines (like Google, Bing, and so on), and posted on our website. Articles remain in our article archive and are visible for visitors and on Search Engines after the advertising period, but can be removed at any moment on your request (free of charge).

The Review Process

Before Ads appear on TraditionalBodywork.com, they’re reviewed to make sure that they meet our Advertising Policy. Typically, most Advertisement orders are reviewed within 48 hours.

During the Ad review process, we’ll check your Ad’s images, text, targeting and positioning, in addition to the content on your Ad’s landing page. Your Ad may not be approved if the landing page content isn’t fully functional, doesn’t match the product/service promoted in your Ad or doesn’t fully comply with our Advertising Policy.

After your Ad has been reviewed, you’ll receive a notification letting you know whether your Ad has been approved. If it’s approved, we’ll start running your Ad, and you will be able to see the results on our website for you to verify its correct implementation.

If your Ad hasn’t been approved due to not fully complying with our policies, we will let you know the reasons, and you can edit it and resubmit it for review. If you can’t edit your Ad or feel that it not being approved was a mistake, please let us know.

Advertisement Content

We accept Ads that contain promotion for courses, workshops, events, retreats, products, providers, suppliers, services & supplies related to Thai Traditional Bodywork or Thai Traditional Medicine.
