The sky is the limit in terms of growth and we want you to grow along with us! Our rates are among the lowest you will find.  Seraphim advertising is a great investment for anything from short-term events to long-term promotion.

We cover over 100 recurring events per month, plus sales, hunts, and other non-recurring sales.  When you search “Seraphim” (or any event we cover) on Google, you will find us on the very first page!  Seraphim is syndicated on several of the most popular fashion feeds, including iheartsl, SL Chic Critique, Virtual Fashion Feeds, Fashion in Pixels, Grid Syndicate,, GlamourSL, and SL Universe.

We use technology to our full advantage. Whether SLers are checking us out from the comfort of their own homes or from their beloved smartphones and tablets, Seraphim simply works! Our blog is easy to navigate no matter how you decide to read us, and we share all of our posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Plurk too!

NOTE: event coverage and paid promotional advertising are not the same!

The sales and event coverage provided by Seraphim is completely free and is a service to the readers and shoppers of Second Life.  We do not charge for event coverage – we never have, and we never will.  If you would like increased promotion and exposure on Second Life’s most visited sales and events site, we offer the packages detailed below.  While paid advertising can be purchased to enhance sales and event coverage, it is not required.  Further, paid promotional advertising does not guarantee event coverage.  To be considered for event coverage, please fill out the appropriate form on our contact page.

Seraphim’s Unique Approach to Advertising

Sticky Advertising

For those special sales and events you want to spotlight, we offer an EXCLUSIVE type of advertising! With the number of events we cover at Seraphim, posts quickly get pushed down the page. On weekends, the mega event you spent weeks organizing could be on page 3 or 4, even though we just posted it yesterday! What to do?! What to do?!

Fortunately, we’ve come up with a solution! For a minimal fee, we will make your post coverage “sticky,” keeping your event featured at the top of front page throughout your rental period. This is a great solution for sales, hunts, and non-recurring events because you can pay only for the days you want to advertise! We only offer two sticky spaces per day, in the order of purchase and publication date. Sticky reservations fill up very fast, especially over weekends and holidays.  Please be sure to apply for sticky advertising as soon as possible.  We recommend advance notice as soon as you have set the dates for your event.  We are currently selling out 16-20 weeks in advance.  Don’t risk missing out on your stickies by waiting to reserve them!

Note: Posts that wish to be featured as “sticky ads” must be events, sales, or hunts being covered by Seraphim.  Sticky advertising is effective by 9:00 AM SLT for the day the advertisement is reserved, and will remain the Seraphim site for 24 hours.  Sticky advertising payments are due at the time of reservation.  If payment has not been received within 72 hours from the date of purchase, the advertisement is subject to cancellation.  Sticky advertising may only be retained for events which are open and able to be shopped by Seraphim readers.  Please be certain your reservations are during a period when your event is open.  Seraphim has a no refund policy.

Sticky advertisements are 1500L per day.

For every 10 stickies reserved in a single purchase, advertisers will receive 1 sticky for free.  To qualify for this savings package, all eleven (10 purchased and 1 free) stickies must be reserved and purchased at the same time.  They cannot be carried over or accumulated for use at a later time.

Banner Advertising

Banner advertising is our newest approach to highlight your sales, event, brand, and more!  For a minimal fee, we will place your advertisement right above the first post of the day, and right below the events listed by tabs.  You pay only for the days you want to advertise with this option, and we offer only one ad per day so there is no competition!  The advertisements have click-through ability that can link back to your in-world store, marketplace, website/blog, or even to your Seraphim gallery.  The possibilities are endless!

Note: Banner advertising is effective by 9:00 AM SLT for the day the advertisement is reserved, and will remain the Seraphim site for 24 hours.  If you are advertising an event or sale that has not yet opened, Seraphim strongly encourages advertisers to put the opening date on their advertisement to avoid frustration from potential shoppers.  Banner advertising payments are due at the time of reservation.  If payment has not been received within 72 hours from the date of purchase, the advertisement is subject to cancellation.  Seraphim has a no refund policy.

Banner advertisements are 4000L per day.

Sidebar Advertising

Grandfathered Pricing

Effective July 1, 2012, when you rent a sidebar ad with us, your price will “lock in” and will never increase for the duration of your rental! This program applies to all current and new ad space renters!

Note: Lapses in payment resulting in an ad being removed, even if it is renewed at a later time, will not qualify for this program. Such ads will be treated as new with pricing at the current rate at time of repurchase. Any ad space purchased during a sale will lock in at the standard, non-sale price.

Loyalty Program

When you place a new sidebar advertisement with Seraphim, your ad is placed at the bottom of the loyalty queue.  As new advertisers come aboard, your ad will move up the list, affording you better and better exposure.  Also, if an advertiser who has been in the queue above your ad placement needs to leave the queue for any reason, your ad will move up in order.  Lapses in monthly renewal payments could affect your standing in the loyalty queue.  Please note, if an advertisement has been removed for non-payment, you may renew the ad but it will start back at the bottom of the loyalty queue.

File Formats

We can accept PNG, JPEG or animated GIF files sized to either 125 x 125 pixels or 250 x 125 pixels, depending on the size ad you would like.  In addition to placement of your advertising image, we can put a URL behind the image for your shoppers to follow.  The URL you provide may be a link to your marketplace page, your in-world SLurl, or even your own store/event blog!  You may change out your image and/or URL as often as you would like for absolutely no charge.  Changes to your image, URL, or advertising size do not affect your standing in the loyalty queue.

Small sidebar ads are 3000L per month.

Large sidebar ads are 4000L per month.

Widget Advertising

If you are looking for the ultimate promotion available on the Seraphim site with the most exposure offered, a widget is exactly what you need.  Widgets give advertisers the unique advantage of being placed at the very top of the sidebar ads, visible to every page visitor.  The image size is 150% larger than any other sidebar image at 300 x 300 px.  These premium ad spaces also receive a short description of the event, sale or brand of up to 500 characters.  Two links are also included in the cost of the advertising to equip shoppers with a SLurl to the event and to link your website, blog, Flickr, marketplace, or other representation you would like.  If your event is being covered by Seraphim, a third link will be added at no charge, pointing to the Seraphim gallery.  This provides shoppers a comprehensive preview of every exclusive item available at your event.

This is a fantastic solution for large events that want to stand out from the crowd.  Other successful widget promotions have included yardsales, creator/brand promotions, and in-store sales.  We only offer one widget per three-day period.  These fill up quickly throughout the holiday season, so be sure to book your widget early if you are interested in our premium promotional offer.

Widget ads are 12,000L per instance
