4. Choose a category from the list

VERY IMPORANT: you must choose a category that directly relates to what you are advertising. Please start by selecting a main category from the list then keep selecting the relevant sub category until you reach the end of the category selection screens based on your ad.

Hint: The deeper you go in the categories the better as it means your ad will be viewed in every category above it = more views! (ie. if you place an ad in Snow Packages > Australia > NSW your ad will be shown 3 times as people navigated through the site but if you place it in Snow Packages > Australia > NSW > Charlotte Pass it will be shown 4 times as visitors 'drill down' for information.
