You can upgrade your listing at any time to one of our two enhanced or premium listing plans. Each plan offers everything the cheaper plans offer, plus more. Different plans offer you the opportunity to have bigger and more visible links within the site, and to be able to post more news stories/press releases promoting your company and products - Read on to find out which plan is right for your business.

VERY IMPORTANT! - Only a limited amount of Premium and Premium Plus advertisers will be allowed in each category. Sign up soon to avoid disappointment.

Premium (Platinum) Listing

For $99 per month you get the an enhanced listing in the mindat directory, plus you get a premium text advert above the main listings, so you get two listings on the same page. Here is what a premium (Platinum) listing looks like: But that's not all - you also get the opportunity to upload a graphical banner image, these are shown in rotation on the same pages your listing is shown on, and on other related pages on mindat.org (but not the mindat.org homepage or the Mindat Directory homepage). Here is an example banner: Note there is NO EXTRA CHARGE for any clicks now on banners or links on mindat.org - the $99 monthly charge is all you pay - everything is inclusive.

You can also post one news story/press release every week, with up to five photos. Your premium listing will be shown in the category of your choice, and you can have enhanced (Bold) listings in another TWO categories of your choice.

Premium Plus (Diamond) Listing

For those companies and organizations that want to have the maximum exposure on mindat.org, for $179 per month you get everything shown above, plus you get your banner shown on the front page (banners are rotated with every banner getting equal exposure) as well as other pages on the site. You also get free text links on mineral and location pages, that's over 500,000 pages on the website with a link to your page (again, these are rotated and shown on an equal basis).

You can also post one news story/press release, with up to ten photos, every day if you wish.

Your premium listing will be shown in the category of your choice, and you can have enhanced (Bold) listings in another THREE categories of your choice.
