What is Pay Per Click advertising?
We have created advertising space in carefully selected locations on the NCASS.org.uk and Eventsbook.co.uk websites. The adverts provide great exposure and great value. Best of all, you’ll only pay for actual visits to your website. We’ll even keep you informed with weekly or monthly reports.
