Welcome music friend. If you are searching for ad space for your band, a space to promote your music, your sound, your melodies, you are at the right place.
I offer you spaces so you can be found and get millions of new fans. I have 10,000 spaces to sell. So this site will become the most exciting place for discovering new music shortly.
There is only one ad page! The genre-buttons (rock, pop, urban, jazz, elektro, classic) are only filters to hide ads of not chosen genres.
Here is how it works:
- You order space per Paypal-buy or by wire transfer (See Ordering Spaces)
- You choose your spaces. You can have more than one! (See Terms & Conditions)
- You pay for your ordered spaces easy and on-the-fly. Every space costs only $10 USD one-time fee, everything included, no follow-up costs (See Paying Spaces).
- You send me your Data: chosen space and graphic you want to have shown there. (See Sending Data)
That's it. Easy, fast and incredibly satisfying. Bring it on! Be part of the ultimate band-homepage.
My available spaces are 10x10 pixels each. Going smaller would not make much sense. So that's $0.10 USD per pixel.
You can buy just a single space as a minimum for $10 USD or up to 100 from whatever is left unfilled and unreserved. 100 spaces would be $1000 USD. If you buy more than one, you are free to choose them arbitrarily. But every space has to touch another one of yours. The shape can be whatever you want. But be sure to send me a graphic in the right shape!
Please read following Terms & Conditions to know what you have to know!
Terms and Conditions
- When you buy spaces from tenthousandbands.com, you will not own any part of the homepage or this site. You buy a right to have your chosen ad graphic with your link at your chosen space for at least the next three years.
- Once you have submitted your image and your link, you cannot change it anymore. It will be on this page for at least the next 3 years.
Only possible exception would be, if you have really strong reason that force you to change your image or more possibly your link. That would be for example, if your site moves to another domain, major structural change or lawsuits, and so on.
- You cannot sell your space later to another party!
- There is no possible way for you to get a refund if your link and image are approved and published on the page.
- The site and homepage will be online for at least 3 years (starting from the day it launched, not the day you buy your space), so at least until 1st of November 2008, but possibly even longer.
- I accept only links, which are connected to music content. Primary band homepages, record shops, labels, fansites, festivals, venues, clubs and everything you can think music can be part of. No obscene / offensive / adult / gambling / right extremistic images / links will be accepted!
decide what is appropriate for this site. If you submit an image or link that is rejected, you will have the opportunity to provide an alternative, otherwise your money will be refunded and you will lose your spaces!
- If your link is accepted and you later change the content of the linked site to show offensive, obscene, adult or other unaccepted material then your link will be removed until you provide a new one, and you will not get a refund of any kind for the link downtime
- If for whatever reason in the future you want your image and link removed from the homepage, you can do that, but you will not get a refund and the space will become publicly available again
- Images must be the exact size you have paid for (eg. 10 spaces = 10x100 pixels or 20x50 pixels depending on which shape and spaces you choose)
- Images must be in common graphic-formats (gif, jpg,
png). We will transform it to png 8-bit (256 colors) otherwise all the ads would melt together and would get ugly jpg-compression-fractals.
- Images CANNOT be animated. Perhaps later there will be a option for this.
- You must have the authority to provide the image and link for the website you submit.
- Your payment must be fully received and cleared before your ads will be published on the page. This could take a few days, so please stay patient.
- There might be occasional downtime for site maintenance but I'll try and keep these to a minimum.
- Once you have ordered, funds have cleared (eg. in my PayPal or bank account) and you have sent me your data, I will aim to get your pixels online within 48hrs. Please have patience, if there are many orders at one time. Everybody will get his space in order of purchase.
Alright, now you know everything you have to, and you're ready to get your favorite place for your image and link. Feel free to go ahead!
There are two ways right now to pay for your spaces. The first and easiest is Paypal. That's the perfect way if you want to buy 1 to 100 spaces (US$10 to 1000).
You can choose how many spaces you want to buy directly on our Paypal checkout. Please check your order and pay the right amount of spaces for you image.
On PayPal you can pay securely via credit card or wire transfer or from your Paypal account. It's quick and uncomplicated.
The second way is for bigger buys. If you want to buy over 50 spaces at once, I offer to use wire transfer. If you want to use this method, please email me to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will provide you all necessary information per mail.
NEW: Special deal for bands:
Send me one CD of your band and get one space for free!
Only mastered EPs and LPs (no maxi!) with proper case and cover are accepted! Don't send me your self-burned stuff in hope of a free space!
Send me the CD to:
Lars Fischer - Keplerstrasse 3 - D-98693 Ilmenau - Germany.
Don't forget to give me contact information (email address) so I can contact you, when I get the CD to set up your personal space.
After you have chosen and paid for your spaces you can go on and send me your data right now. And here is what you're gonna do:
- Send an Email to email@example.com with the following data:
- Attach your image as common graphic file (GIF, PNG, JPEG) (must be the correct size and shape for the spaces purchased). No animated graphics will be approved!
- Tell me where you want your image placed. Please give the exact coordinates.
(eg. "upper left corner: 5th row , 13th column"). Make sure you are certain, because you can't change it later.
- Type the link that you want on your ad
(must begin with 'http://')
- State what TITLE/ALT text you want for your image, max. 100 characters. TITLE/ALT text appears when people hover their cursor over your image.
- Please give us the type/topic of your page (band, label, record shop, orchestra, ...) for our database
- Give the style of your music from Pop, Rock, Urban, Electronic, Jazz or Classical so the filter can work. If you are unsure, you can choose two, but please be honest with yourself and me. A second genre will not cost any additional money. Every space is only available one time. There are no overlappings through genres. All ads will be shown at the start page (home).
- You can give further information for our database, which will not be shown on the homepage itself right now. Please not more than a few words!
- Please send the name of the contact person and an email address, where I can email you if necessary.
That's all I need to get your space online and help you become a very popular band or whatever you do with music.
Thanx for the buy and good luck! I can't wait to check all your pages and hear your music.
