Advertising Pricing

Marketing & Advertising Plans & Prices

Scroll down for detailed pricing – Advertising with us is ‘almost’ free. An annual fee of R175 is applied to basic directory listings and a R500 fee to full Membership. Oink carries data costs for the updating of information, site maintenance and creation of listings, posts and the uploading of images etc. Oink understands that when a company promotes itself, it also promotes the town it is located in. This is why our fees are affordable for every business and we’d appreciate your assistance in helping us promote Midrand and the Gauteng province by adding your business.

Midrand Only! No Google Ads & Affiliate Marketing on Our Site

No Google ads or affiliate marketing will ever appear on an Oink platform. This lies at the core of Oink South Africa’s ethical approach to online marketing and has remained in effect since 2007. While Oink may use Google Ads to increase our own traffic, it is questionable to place Google Ads on our sites. The basis is that if you are listed on an Oink website, your business gets the traffic and we will not redirect your traffic via a Google ad on our website who may or may not be listed in some other location entirely. This website belongs to those who live in Midrand, have a business in or provide a service to the suburbs of Midrand, who advertise with us and who visit Midrand.
