- Zone 1: These are the ads in the top right of every page. These ads are 300px wide by 250px high. Because website visitors don’t have to scroll down to see these ads when the page loads, this is another high visibility area. Zone 1 ads are $25.00 per month.
- Zone 2: These are the ads on the right of the page directly under the Zone 1 ads. These ads are also 300px wide by 250px high. Because website visitors have to scroll down to see these ads, this area offers less exposure; however it is economical at $20.00 per month.
- Zone 3: These are the ads on the right of the page directly under the Zone 2 ads. These ads are also 300px wide by 250px high. Because website visitors have to scroll down even further to see these ads, this area offers even less exposure, but it is only $15.00 per month.
- Above Post Ads: These ads only show up when someone clicks onto an article. In other words they are only visible on news article posts and are not visible on the home page or other pages. That being said, it is a fairly visible ad spot as people must see it before they read any news article. We offer this ad spot at $20.00 per month.
- Sponsored Articles: This is where you would write an article about your business, the services you offer, special offers, etc, etc. You would send the sponsored article to us along with some images we can use and we would post that as a news article. The article would not only be visible and searchable on our site, but it will also be pushed out to our 1,000 + Facebook followers, twitter followers and email newsletter subscribers.
Question 1: I’m not a techie and my business doesn’t have a website to link an online advertisement to. Is this going to be a problem?
Answer: Absolutely not! Even if you have never touched a keyboard before in your life, and even if you don’t have a website to link to, we can make online advertising work for you. After you contact us letting us know you are interested in advertising, we can take care of absolutely everything needed to get your online presence set up, and if you don’t have a website to link to, we can create a Facebook page for you, a Google webpage for you, or we can even create a directory page for you on our site that your ad can link to (coming soon). And of course, we can put your business phone number on your ad and don’t have to link it to anything if you would prefer that as well.
Question 2: Will you send me reports so I know how many times within a month my ad was viewed, clicked on, etc?
Answer: No. In order to improve page speed we have chosen to eliminate our ad server, thus we only serve ads as images and will no longer be sending out statistical reports. Should the customer base demand this, we can always bring the functionality back in the future.
Question 3: What if I want my advertisement to show up in multiple spots? For example, is it possible to have my advertisement in the Leaderboard, Zone 1 and Zone 2 all at the same time?
Answer: Yes it is possible to have your advertisement in multiple zones at the same time. In order to do this, you would need to purchase advertising space in each zone you plan to advertise in. The good news is if you want to purchase multiple advertising slots in different zones, we invite you email [email protected] and ask him about bulk purchase discounts.
