HOW IT WORKS
Advertising on this site is not sold by impressions, but rather by digital slots which run for 30-day or year-long periods. We offer 300x300, 150x150 banner advertisements as well as exclusive access to our “Program Directory.” The program directory features French learning courses, programs, or even travel destinations & locations that would interest a French-loving audience.
All advertisements served on FrenchCrazy are monitored electronically. Click-throughs for URL’s are stored and available to our advertisers.
On a monthly basis this site serves anywhere from 150,000 to 200,000 page views and receives at least 70,000 – 100,000 unique visitors (this number varies by month). Actual results will vary from campaign to campaign depending on the amount of advertisers and our site traffic, but we will always strive to provide our advertisers with transparency regarding the status of their campaign.
At a very minimum you are guaranteed to get anywhere from 60,000-100,000 impressions per month of advertising with sidebar banner ads and several thousand impressions/month if you join our French program directory.

Some of our most asked questions when regarding the FrenchCrazy Program Directory.
Is the directory a good choice for my business?
Look at the cost-benefit ratio. For some programs, even earning just ONE student from our directory will pay for the discounted annual fee. This is real money for your business.
You’ll have 365 days on our directory – which makes it hard to believe that you won’t gain exposure as well as prospective clients.
We have a focused audience who love all things French. If you’re selling French courses or classes then FrenchCrazy is the right choice for you.
We’ve also spent years to build trust within our audience. By being placed on the program directory – you’ll be called our “partner” which is a big deal to some people.
But we offer lessons online?
We do include global / online courses.
Where is my ad placed?
Directory ads are placed chronologically unless a premium fee was paid (contact us for more information). This means that the sooner you sign up, the closer you’ll be to the top of your region’s listing. As schools or programs shuffle in and out, your advertisement will slowly rise higher.
I have more questions.
That’s fine! You can reach out to the owner of FrenchCrazy:
John is also accessible via phone or Skype, however you should email him first to obtain those channels.
