Splice Deals was designed with the goal of being able to facilitate the promotion of various products, services, places & jobs collectively “Ads” to very specific demography. As a result a considerable amount of attention have been placed on directing high intent visitors to very specific search and filter pages where they can act on an intended goal, which may vary depending on the Ad type in question.
With this approach subscriber need to understand our listing strategy in order to leverage the platform to its full potential. On search and filter pages Ads are sorted primarily in a chronological order, in addition we’ve made it possible to manually sort Ads by proximity, reviews, priority & so on.
Each user is permitted to list 4 free Ads, one business/place, one service and two other Ad types.
This feature is only accessible to users that have a paid subscription. Each featured Ad is automatically published with a higher priority above free Ads.
Say advertiser “A” lists a car for free and advertiser “B” list a car under a paid package, the featured Ad will be closer to the top of the page with respect to the free listing. However if advertiser “A” decides to promote their Ad then that particular Ad would have a priority greater than the featured Ad hence closer to the top of the page.
Please note, all Ads are chronologically ordered within their respective levels.
When can I promote my Ad?
Whenever you like! Once you’ve submitted your ad you can navigate to your Ads from your User Dashboard or from the user menu. Select the Promote option from the list of options on the Ad you would like to promote, follow the checkout process to make your payment. Once your payment is confirmed your Ad will automatically be moved to the top of search and filter pages.
What else should I know?
Once you’ve promoted your Ad, You won’t be able to transfer the promotion to another. If you’ve deleted a listing after promoting it you won’t be able to get a refund either, Promote transactions are final.
At any given time there are multiple Ads being promoted, since we’re unable put all the Promoted Ads on the Home Page or on Search & Filter Pages they are listed in chronological order on the search pages and are randomized on the Home Page to give an even distribution of views.
