- Upper Banner: FindLight’s home page exhibits a large rotating banner of a few unique products at any given time. The set of banner products refreshes periodically a few times per day. The number of banner ads and the refresh rate are controlled by the FindLight Administrator. The banner ad consists of a high-resolution image of a product, a title, and a concise marketing message about the product, service or the vendor. Clicking on a banner takes the visitor to the product posting page which has the detailed description and the specifications of the model.
- Lower Banner: FindLight’s home page also contains a lower rotating banner of a smaller size situated in the bottom part of the homepage. This banner showcases the vendor’s logo along with a short description. Banners contain hyperlinks to the product postings or vendor microsite (if enabled) for increased web traffic.

A listing chosen for premium placement is anchored in the top positions of a product category for maximum visibility.
