Here are all your advertising options for the, and the Jalapeno forum.

All listings renew on January 15th. No renewal will be processed Jan 15, 2016 so if you are buying your advertising before that you are getting a bit extra at no cost.

You can contact a re-seller to buy advertising or enter your own listing(s) and get the discounts shown below.

Click this link for a list of re-sellers: Directory Advertising Re-sellers. You can also email Johan at and he will help you get started with your own listing or put you in contact with someone who can.

There are 5 main categories each with increasing exposure. There is a separate page of examples that should help you understand how it all works. Try this link: Advertising Examples.

If you enter your own data then you have a 10% discount on your account which you can apply next year when you renew.

If you have three businesses you enter the first one then apply a 10% discount to the second one and the 20% discount to your third business and you still have 30% of that third sale to add to your renewal next year or that of a friend.

If you want to become a re-seller and sell advertising to other businesses then you can make some additional income. Contact Johan for details about that at

Additional notes:

Featured listings appear first where appropriate.

If no logo is entered then the first photo will be used instead so put your best photo first.

Webpages and listing never disappear unless you request it or your business is terminated or deemed inappropriate for our family oriented website :) . If you stop paying for advertising your listing gets down graded to a free ad but the webpage remains accessible.

Events are shown on forum side bar, the Jalapeno blog and the news letter with the higher priced packages appearing first.

Categories must relate to the business. You cannot put a restaurant in the real estate section unless it is for sale regardless of how many categories your package allows.

The event calendar and special offers can be modified by the business owner at no charge. If you need your re-seller to do it for you he/she may charge for that.

Featured businesses appear randomly at the top of the right sidebar of the directory.

Additional charges:

Extra pages can be added to any website even free ones but the cost is negotiable based on how complex the pages.

You can add the Featured option to a Gold package for 1,000 Pesos.

Free webpage:

All webpages constructed will be available as long as you and the Jalapeno stay in business with their current owners. The webpage is free if you build it yourself and even if you never pay for advertising it will stay active. Paid advertising is scaled to give your webpage more exposure i.e. get more people to notice it and your business. If you stop paying for advertising the webpage stays but the paid exposure is reduced to the Free package. The free package includes listing in one category, a small pin point on the map, reviews, and one telephone number in the directory listing. Although the directory listing is small the webpage can include most features of a paid listing. It does not include special offers or the opt out of reviews button. It allows you to add event but those events are not included in certain places like the forum and blog.

For free listings there is a charge of 500 pesos to opt out of reviews. On paid listings it is just a check box you click.

Non Profits:

To help promote the good works that our community organizations do we offer the following.
A free Silver business listing which lets you build your webpage to best describe your organization and link events to it.
Unlimited featured events are also included.

If you have a website that you are tired of maintaining we can replace that with a Diamond at no charge. A webpage inside the Jalapeno is more likely to be found by Google.

Change of Policy:

We reserve the right to change these policies. We will email advertisers or their re-seller when that happens but we cannot guarantee that you will receive notice of any changes especially if you change your email address or do not read your emails. Even promises like a free webpage forever could be changed by a future owner of the website but it is the intent of the current owners to provide as much information to the directory visitors as possible..

Inappropriate Advertising:

We reserve the right to suspend any link to an inappropriate website or service.  For example if your website gets infected with a virus or starts to advertise inappropriate services or contains pornography we must protect the ranking of our website by suspending the link  to your site until it is repaired. We also do not link to sites that will in other ways diminish our website’s credibility.
