Ad dimensions & asthetics.
Advertisements must be no larger than 200 pixels wide by 80 pixels high, and
must have either a white background or fade-to-white edges. These
requirements are necessary to maintain the asthetics of the website.
ImporterHelp.com reserves the right to reject any proposed advertisement if that
ImporterHelp.com determines, in its sole discretion, is not in harmony with the
asthetics of the ImporterHelp.com website.
There are only two ad areas per page (see above). You may request placement on any specific page or pages
within ImporterHelp.com, and those spaces may be reserved prior to payment for a
period of 7 calendar days (during which time payment must be made).
However, we reserve the right to place your ads on pages that we determine, in
our sole discretion, to be the most similar pages available if ad space on the
requested page has already been reserved and paid for, or has been reserved
within the past 7 calendar days. Advertisement space may only be
purchased for as many as six months at any one time.
prices. The price for advertising on
non-premium pages is $25.00 per month. Non-premium pages include any FAQ

product pages, or specific investigation pages. The price for
advertising on premium pages is $50.00 per month. Premium
pages include the ImporterHelp.com home page, the News home page, the
Investigations home page, the Pages of New Investigations in the months prior to
the Department of Commerce Preliminary Determination, the Orders by Product home page, and the Orders by
Country home page. There is no advertisement space on the Who we are,
Advertise, Contact, or Links pages. Further, the Law Firms page is
dedicated solely to law firm and lawyer listings (the Links page will not
contain links to lawyers or law firms).
Lawyer and Law Firm listings.
Listings on the Law
Firms page may be requested by any lawyer or law firm that practice in areas of
the law that concern importers -- primarily, antidumping and countervailing duty
law and customs law. Any lawyer or law firm satisfying this criterion may
secure a standard listing at a price of $25.00 per quarter per listing. (Each
listing may only list one lawyer or the law firm, thus a law firm that wants to
list itself and three attorneys would have to pay 4 x $25.00 = $100.00 for the
four listings per quarter. This price includes any partial quarter prior to
the first full year of listing (e.g., if ABC Firm contacts
and pays for a quarter's listing on May 15, 2010 (half way through the second
quarter of the year), the $25.00 payment fully
pays for the listing from the payment date through September 30, 2010 (i.e., to
the end of the third quarter of the year). These prices and time frames
are subject to change without notice, however, ImporterHelp.com will not
increase rates applicable to current quarter listings. Unless delisting is
requested, ImporterHelp.com reserves the right to maintain lawyer and law firm
listings, and also reserves the right to reorganize unpaid listings.
A standard listing includes the lawyer's (or
law firm's) name, address, and contact information, including a link to any one
web page in the lawyer's or law firms' website. Premium listings are
available, and include either a customized logo appearing in the space where the
lawyer's name and listing would normally appear, or involve premium placement in
the top two rows of the law firms and lawyers listing, or both. Premium
listings require an additional $50.00 monthly charge, per premium listing,
payable in advance of publication in 3-month blocks. Premium listings
appearing in the top two rows of listed lawyers and law firms will only be
available for the next quarter calendar year, with market conditions determining
price. Placement among the top two rows will
be by preference of the lawyer or law firm in the order of the longest
continuous premium listing. If fewer than 8 premium placement advertising
spaces have been requested and paid
for, listings in those spaces will be filled by the longest
continuously listed firms at the applicable standard rate.
ImporterHelp.com reserves the right to waive charges in exchange for substantive
contributions to the content of ImporterHelp.com, which ImporterHelp.com, in its
sole discretion, can propose, accept, or reject.
