Using the banner service

Firstly, please note that before any promotions can be purchased for an event, that event needs to be added to the Conal website, and enabled.

Banners advertising your event can be purchased on any page of the Conal website with the exception of the home page. There are currently four banner slots available on each page of the Conal website, and a slot needs to be available on any page before you can purchase a banner for that page. Please see examples of banners here. (The banners are the four images across the top of the page).

To purchase a banner, please first make sure that you have the banner graphic you wish to upload to the page available. Check that all the details on the banner about your event are correct, and that the banner measures 240px by 150px.

Then, log in to your organizer account.

Scroll down to the event you wish to promote, and click on “Promote event”.

Choose “Banner” as the promotion.

Choose the page, or pages on which you would like your banner to appear. Choose the page(s) off the drop down menu, and then click on Add. If a page on the menu is grayed out, it means there are no free slots available on that page, and the page cannot be chosen. Once you have chosen your page or pages, please click continue.

On the next page you will be asked to upload your banner image. Click on Choose file to do this. Please note, if your image is not the correct size, it will not upload.

Then choose the months for each page. The color guide will show if a page is available or not. It looks like this:

If the month you want is not available (if the gray fully booked color is showing on the month), click on the Back button at the bottom of the page to remove the page in question, or choose another page.

Then click on Continue.

On the next page, confirm that all the information you have chosen or uploaded is correct. Then click on the Place order and pay button.

Your banner promotion will be enabled once we receive proof of payment.
