What really separates the CatholicMatch advertising program from others is that it was designed by our CEO Brian Barcaro who has been buying advertising in the Catholic market for 15 years. He is often frustrated with the process and feels we should make it as easy and transparent as we can for others. Based on his experience he established five simple guidelines that our program follows.
- Large standard size ads in prime locations
- Very limited number of ad spaces per page
- Simple pricing structure
- Value, value, value
- Desire to grow with the advertiser & reward loyal advertisers
