Thank you for your interest in DanceComps.com. To give you a bit of a background, this website was started when we saw there was a huge need in the Dance Competition industry. Many studios were unaware of how many competitions were going on right in their backyard. Over the last 3 years we took it upon ourselves to seek out every competition and log all available schedules in order to create a Dance Comps Database. We officially launched this website on August 9th 2010 and have received an overwhelming amount of response from studios, teachers, dancers, competitions, and businesses.

We wanted to keep our subscriptions as affordable as possible knowing that the industry has taken a slight hit due to the economy. Being a full service marketing and design agency with a background in the dance industry we understand how print advertising can be extremely expensive and impossible to track, and created this great opportunity for all dance businesses and competitions.

DanceComps.com offers special packages for retail and services looking to get the attention of Studio Owners, Teachers, Parents and Dancers. We are very intune with our demographic and we know exactly what they are looking for. In addition, we track EVERYTHING so your campaign ROI can be proven through our reporting system. If these packages do not fit your exact need, please contact us and we'll be happy to cusomtize a package for you.

Most magazines require your ad 2-3 months in advance to printing. All ads must be approved and take at least 24 hours to start campaigns.
Demographics We attract Studios, Teachers, and Dancers only. Simply because there isn't information for anyone else on our website. Inflated numbers and low readership make magazine demographics hard to track. Ads may be targeted to areas but not to specific people. A high bounce rate can be costly.
Analytics & Tracking We tracking EVERYTHING, see how many studios clicked on your profile and open or clicked on your e-blasts. Results are untrackable. A complex tracking system allows for analytics.
Ease of Use Updating your profile or events is easy, and someone is always available to assist you. Between design, tight deadlines and publishing magazine advertising can be very time consuming. Google's Complex system allows for flexibility but can be complicated with out proper training.

Gone are the days of wasting valuable time and money blanketing large areas with postcards and untrackable magazine ads. Geotargeted Banner Advertising gives our clients the ability to focus their advertising budget on the exact location and demographic they are looking for.

How the DanceComps Ad Network works:
DanceComps.com currently has banner advertising placed throughout our website with the ability to show specific ads to our users. Monthly click reports are available for each of your ads upon request. Our ad network has shown a 1%-6% click through rate which is well above the US average of 0.1%. (Interested in Geo-Targeting Advertising? We can target specific areas of the US and Canada with your advertisment! Ask your sales rep for more information).

Ad Specifications:
300px W x 250px H - Please provide your banner in either JPEG, GIF, or Flash Animation. If you are planning on using Flash, please provide both a Flash Animation as well as a JPEG image for non-flash compliant devices. DanceComps.com reserves the right to pull any overly distracting, misleading or offensive advertising. Rule of thumb: If you wouldn't want the ad on your own website, please do not ask us to place it on ours.

Need a banner ad designed for you?:
We aren't just DanceComps.com, we are a full service design and web development agency with a love for dance. Our design team can help put together the perfect ad banner for your campaign. Our reduced hourly rate for Featured Businesses is $40/hr and a quote can be provided upon request. Most JPEG ads take 2-4hrs to design and Flash Ads take 8-12hrs but once it is made, it's yours to keep!

 

Looking to reach out directly to the studios and teachers? Our studio e-blast list contains over 2500+ studios and teachers waiting to hear from you. Our list has been grown organically and continues to grow each and every day!

How to use our blast list:
Separate from our 50,000+ blast list, DanceComps has an organically grown list of over 2500+ dance studios. All you need to do is supply us with graphics and information you want in the e-blast and we'll do the rest. The e-blast will be sent using a professional bulk e-mailer and has a 99% delivery rate. This ensures your e-mail reaches each and every studio on our list. To increase open and click through rate the e-mail will be delivered using a DanceComps header and e-mail address, to ensure the user that the information is coming from a reputable source. Two weeks post e-blast, a click and open report will be provided to the client for review. DanceComps allows a limited amount of e-mails per month, as we recommend scheduling all blasts in advance.

E-blast Specifications:
Client will be responsible for providing graphics, and information for the e-blast. The e-blast is 800px wide with a maximum height of 2000px. DanceComps strongly recommends using a Call To Action such as a Promotion, Coupon, or Contest to increase user clicks. Our team will be available to assist with any questions or ideas regarding your e-blast promotion.
