    Sponsorship Information

    These are the current sponsorship options:
    Banner:The content of this ad must be 3000GT/Stealth/GTO related Ads that do not target/support our platform will not be accepted. This banner will go in the spot below the main COTM banner. It will be 468x60 and get a even balance of rotations with all other banners in the queue. The software does not support giving banners weight over other banners. $350 per year. Level 3 sponsors can add a banner for $250 per year.

    Level 3: This is the least expensive option. It allows you to sell on the site but you must limit your advertisements to posts in the classifieds forum. Level 3 sponsorships are $150, payable annually.

    Level 2: This is the mid-level option. Just like the level 3 sponsorship, you can post sales in the classifieds forums. In addition to posting in the classifieds forums, your Level 2 sponsorship includes your own forum in the silver sponsors section. When used properly this can bring considerable visibility to your company, A Level 2 sponsorship is $100 if paid quarterly or $300 if paid annually.

    Level 1: This sponsorship is your best value. A Level 1 sponsorship includes all the benefits of Level 2, but additionally provides a banner ad in the top-of-page rotation, your own forum (the only banners in your forum will be 3S event banners or yours), and the ability to display a banner in your signature. The Level 1 sponsorship is $150 paid quarterly or $500 paid annually.

    In this economy, we all need to stretch our advertising dollars as much as possible. When compared to rates offered by competitive sites, the prices shown above are a steal for a one-year sponsorship. However, we've come up with ways to make your advertising go further.

    Level 1 sponsors that choose pay annually can pay up to $150 of the sponsorship fee with $50 gift certificates. The gift certificates will be used as gifts and prizes. Some may go to 3SGTO car-of-the-month winners, while others will go to 3S events around the country. I'm sure you can see how this could extend the reach of your advertising.

    Level 1 sponsors that choose to pay annually and are also 3/S National Gathering Gold or Event sponsors will receive $100 off their sponsorship fee.

    All sponsor packages come with all the paid member perks and more PM space.

    Now one of the biggest issue I had on 3SI was these tiers are great for businesses but the small vendors, the guys that make 1-2 parts in their back yard are left out in the cold. $150 to sell could be more profit than they make in a year. IMO that just does not work. I've thought about this a lot, read other forum, talked to people and created 4th level.

    : $30 / $10 per year paid annually (Sales in classifieds Only)
    Its up to me to determine if you qualify. PM me and we will then discuss what you do and see if you fit. Put anything you think may be pertinent in the PM. (basically you just need to keep your site supporter status active. )

    Do you have a business or advertising interest that just does not fit? Just PM me and we'll work something out.

    Group Buys
    Group buys are a touchy subject. On one hand they are good for the members but we can't let non-sponsoring companies come in here and potentially undercut our sponsors. After some thought and discussion we have come up with the following for group buys.
    If you are a sponsor - Have a party make all of the group buys you want.

    If the person/company that is collecting the funds is not a sponsor they will need to pay a $50 group by fee. Gauging interest threads can be made without paying. The $50 needs to be paid prior to any sale funds being collected. If they do not pay the feel the person organizing the buy will be responsible for the payment. If you have a good reason why you think $50 for the sale is too much PM me the details of the sale and we'll see what we can work out.
