Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
The aim of the Whisky-distilleries.info site is just to share the single malt whisky passion and to promote this very special drink. As a consequence, this site is only informative, and even if it is rather complete and documented, it will never be possible for a visitor to buy any bottle directly from this site. And yet, according to the site statistics and the e-mails I get, lots of people are looking for bottles, and would like to know where they can find them.
On the other hand, lots of commercial sites who can fulfil their needs exist, but in most cases the information about distilleries, and even about the bottlings is rather poor. Yet the current trend for consumers is to know more about the items they buy.
Opening this informational pages to selected advertisements can help this visitors to find what they are looking for: information, and the way to buy whisky.
Advertisement banners on predefined areas on the pages is the way
to advertise through whisky-distilleries.info
The site contains two kinds of pages: general
information pages and pages directly dedicated to specific distilleries
and their bottlings. All the pages exist in two languages: English
Banners can be placed on top of pages (there is room for 3 concurrent banners, 200x75) or on the right or left margin (room for 1 banner, 150x75)
The program displays the banners randomly, according to some criteria to define (like relative weight -(importance of the campaign)- , and so on)
The banners can be pictures, text or flash
animations. A click on the banner brings the visitor directly on
the advertisers web site.
The possibility to check in real time the effect of a campaign is provided. A user id and password is given, and logging in on a special page on the site shows the number of banner displays, the number of clicks, and even the IP addresses of people who have clicked.
Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
This site does not collect any private data from it's visitors. Is is purely static.
