CXO, Investor and Adviser
subscriber community who receive
our Daily Newswire.
As many of you are aware,
independence is an unbreakable
Megabuyte rule.
It is for this reason that we have
historically declined paid-for advertising
from our corporate subscribers.
However, we are able to accept
advertising as a charitable exercise,
otherwise known as Megabuyte's

BannersforGood: Getting involved

to all Megabuyte subscribers (Companies, Advisers and Investors). 

3 Brand building or tombstone adverts only.
3 Advertising slots are sold in blocks of four days.
3 You
cannot purchase more than one block a month. 

3 The
number of blocks available in any single quarter is three. 


• The cost of a single ad block is £250. This includes a £50 processing fee for making your artwork
ready to publish on our system.

• The
cost of any subsequent ad block is £250 if using different artwork (each new ad execution 

attracts a £50 processing fee) or £200 if using existing artwork.

on the Byte Night Action for Children on-line charitable donations page. The donation will be
credited to your company unless you prefer to remain anonymous.
• Please
note that we do not design or typeset adverts for customers. We only process customer artwork 

(overlaying it with our artwork) as a precursor to publication.
