LOCAL SERVICES
Advertising on PianoBuyer.com

The PianoBuyer.com website receives more than 35,000 visitors per month, and that number is rapidly increasing. Now you can inexpensively advertise your piano-related services to viewers in your local market.

For only US$95 a year ($69 for members of affiliated organizations — see below), we will run an ad for your piano-related business — tuning, rebuilding, teaching, sales, or moving — in the Local Services Directory on PianoBuyer.com. Viewers access the Directory from the PianoBuyer.com home page, or from the navigation bar on any of the website's pages. The ad will be seen by viewers only in the area you choose, including, where applicable, areas outside North America. The program determines a viewer’s location from their computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address.

We offer a discounted rate of US$69 per year to members of organizations that help us advertise the Directory to their members. To qualify for this rate, the advertiser must be a member in good standing of the organization, and the member’s name must appear in the ad.

Currently, the affiliated organizations are:

   Music Teachers National Association (MTNA)

    Piano Technicians Guild (PTG)

If you wish the ad to be displayed to viewers in more than three U.S. states (up to and including the entire world), the cost for an Expanded Territory listing is $195 a year.

You can upload your own ad; or we will create an ad for you, at no charge, based on your answers to a number of questions about your business. The ad can be linked to your website.

Ads can also be run to appear in countries outside North America, and in languages other than English. However, if your language does not use the English alphabet (for example: Russian, Chinese, Arabic), you must create and upload your own ad.

Please contact us if you have any questions about placing your ad in the Local Services Directory.

Note: We reserve the right to refuse ads that are not piano-related or are otherwise inappropriate.
