Significantly increase traffic, sales, and profit, through highly effective online advertising that is second to none. Sourcer brings a brand new advertising tool to the table, and it's quite fruitful.

Advertise: Describe or draw attention to (a product, service, or event) in a public medium in order to promote sales or attendance. Origin: Late Middle English: from Old French advertiss-, lengthened stem of advertir, from Latin advertere ‘turn towards’.

Consumers and businesses are using Sourcer to search for products that you offer. They are local to your business, across the country, and around the globe. Advertising on Sourcer provides a direct way of getting their attention by showing them who you are, where you are, and how your products match their needs. It couldn't be more straightforward.

Becoming a Sponsor on Sourcer is as simple as a banner ad 240 pixels wide by 200 pixels high, of an appropriate image and text. This includes a link to a profile page on this website with a description of your company, contact information and general offerings, and a complete presentation of your listed products. There is nothing more direct.


Taking an ad with Sourcer means your listed products show up at the top of the qualified search results. This means your products get in front of users that are actively searching for your products.

How It Works

Every time an ad is presented to a website user, that is an impression. You buy a certain number of impressions and your total count is reduced every time your ad is viewed.

A user clicks your ad to see your profile, which explains your company and provides a link (chosen by you) to which they can travel to your company website. Any current listings for your company are listed as well (limits apply).
