TICA's "Catvertising" plan offers breeders, businesses and other advertisers a low-cost way to promote your cattery, product or services to our members and TICA exhibitors in addition to cat lovers around the world through our two web sites – www.TICA.org and www.TICAU.com – plus our enewsletter.
Our two web sites are visited by more than 8000 people from around the globe, each month! TICA.org attracts the serious exhibitor and breeder, plus other professionals who work with cats and cat lovers. TICAU.com is focused on the cat lover, offering them "one source of information" on anything that is cat related! Traffic continues to climb each month for both sites, in addition to our page rankings and results in organic searches to keywords that are cat related. You have the opportunity to place a 125 x 125 or 83 x 672 banner ad on either site, or both sites to double your exposure. You can also opt for a Classified Ad which is limited to 75 characters plus an image.
TICA publishes a monthly enewsletter that is distributed to more than 8,000 readers worldwide. This is a great way to keep your brand or cattery in front of a target audience. Your 125 x 125 banner ad is the perfect fit for this format!
