Advertising Options

Affordable advertising for proofreaders, editors, copywriters and moreLooking for proofreading work? This page discusses our advertising options for freelance proofreaders. As a niche business directory established in 2012, aimed at providing freelance proofreading jobs in the UK, Find a Proofreader is a wise investment for proofreaders and copy editors.

The site features very highly in Google, Yahoo! and Bing search results for many relevant keywords. A business listing on a niche site will raise your online profile and, in turn, increase your own website’s rankings.

Members of the site also receive additional benefits, as outlined below – some of which you will not find on any other directories of this kind. Yet, and here’s the best bit, our advertising rates are still much lower than many of our competitors, and we never charge our members commission fees for work gained via the site.

We have the following advertising options for you:

1. Standard Listing For Proofreaders/Editors – £40/year

For just £40 a year you can have a standard listing under our main category of Proofreaders / Editors. You can add your email, phone number, photo and website link, as well as a description of your business. You will receive proofreading leads every time a visitor uses our Get a Quote page. You can enhance your profile by getting positive reviews from customers – think of it as a mini-webpage. Additionally, people can search the directory using keywords and contact you directly. Tip! Make sure to add relevant keyword tags to your listing to appear for relevant searches.

Your profile helps people find you in Google, plus you get a powerful backlink to boost your website’s SEO. Not bad for just £40 a year! (All you need is one job to make your money back…and it costs less than the price of a coffee a month.) Many people have launched full-time proofreading businesses based off the contacts they gained by listing on our website.

2. Featured Listing For Proofreaders/Editors  – £70/year

For £70 a year you can have a category featured listing. You’ll receive all the same as the standard listing above but with the added bonus of being featured above all other advertisers in the proofreaders/editors category when users search the site by category or keyword – and your listing will be highlighted in purple so that it stands out from the crowd. See an example below:

3. Standard Listing For Other Categories – £15/year

As the overwhelming majority of leads we receive are proofreading/editing jobs, our other categories (indexers, virtual assistants,) cost just £15 per year for a standard listing. Please note that businesses listed in these categories do not receive leads via Get a Quote.

4. Sidebar Banner Ad – contact us

If you have a product or service that is relevant to our website but does not fit in one of the listing categories – such as software for proofreaders or accounting services for freelancers – you can buy premium advertising space in the form of a banner ad.  You can have a 260 px (width) x 160 px (height) ad listed in the sidebar. Your advert will appear on all the main pages of the site, including the homepage.

5. Talk to us!

If there are other advertising options you’re interested in discussing, talk to us – we are always open to new suggestions. Perhaps you’d like to sponsor the site or have a larger banner ad. Whatever it is, drop us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
