Note: You purchase all promotions as a subscription that automatically renews itself until it is canceled or your rental is marked as reserved or rented out.

How does a Top ad work?

With a top ad, your rental property can be displayed at the very top of the housing seekers' list view.

When a user searches for a rental on BostadsPortal, the advertisements that match their search and have a top ad added will be presented first.

This is where your top ad will be placed.png

As shown in the picture above, there is space for three promoted advertisements. If there are more than three promoted advertisements that match the housing seekers search, the advertisements will be placed in a 'carousel', which continuously rotates every time the page refreshes. This way all the promoted advertisements are equally exposed.

If the housing seeker clicks on 'More promoted ads', the 'carousel' will rotate and the seeker will then be presented with three new promoted ads.

In addition to being promoted to the top of the searches in the 'carousel', your advertisement will remains its original position in the search results.


How does Free contact work?

If a housing seeker wants to contact a landlord they must have an active housing search subscription. With the promotion option Free contact the housing seekers can freely contact you via your advertisement, regardless of whether they have an active subscription or not.

When you purchase the Free contact-promotion, your advertisement will feature a green banner with the text Free contact. This way, your ad stands out from the rest, and it becomes clear to everyone that the paywall had been removed for your rental property.

You will get:

  • All benefits from Top ad and Free contact
  • Visibility in similar ads
  • Visibility in searches in nearby areas
  • Segmented advertising on Facebook
