SierraMadreNews.Net provides several kinds of advertising opportunities, with one thing in common: your ad will appear on every page of the “new” section of the website!¬† According to Google Analytics, between December 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011, there were more than 30,000 page views of the News Net site.¬† That’s 30,000 times your ad would have appeared before our readers!¬† Between Jan. 1 and Jan. 31, 2012, there were nearly 27,000 page views.¬† The ratio of new visitors to returning visitors both months was about 59%/41%.
There are several ways that you can advertise with us.¬† Click on the image to see a larger example of each type of advertising.
Feature story advertising – We’ll insert your ad into the feature story that appears at the top of the page.¬† As we post a new feature story, your ad will be removed from the old feature story and placed in the new feature story (this prevents expired coupons from appearing).¬†¬† Feature story ads are 250 pixels by 250 pixels (100ppi resolution), and cost $100/mo.¬† There is only one feature story ad available, and this is the only way to have the larger size graphic appear above the fold.¬† The graphic can link to whatever URL you tell us to link it to.¬† xxxxxxxwwwwww
Banner advertising - At the top of the page, we have one banner advertisement.¬† The advantage to the location of the ad is that it is seen by our readers every time the page loads, with no scrolling necessary by the reader for it to be directly in their vision.¬† That banner ad is available for a maximum of three months, at a cost of $100/mo.¬† If, at the end of three months, no other advertiser has requested the banner ad, you may extend your ad month by month. The graphic can link to whatever URL you tell us to link it to.
Above the fold advertising – At the top of the page, there are four ad graphics, 125 pixels by 125 pixels (100ppi resolution).¬† The advantage to the location of these ads is that they are seen by our readers every time the page loads, with no scrolling necessary by the reader for them to be directly in their vision.¬† These “above the fold” ads are available for a maximum of three months, at a cost of $30/mo.¬† If, after three months, there is still an above the fold space available, you may extend your ad month by month. The graphic can link to whatever URL you tell us to link it to.
Standard advertising – Standard advertising appears on every page of the “new” section of the website.¬† There are three size ads available in this section: 125pixels by 125 pixels, 125 pixels (high) by 250 pixels (wide), or 250 pixels by 250 pixels.¬† The prices of these ads are $15, $25 and $35 dollars per month.¬† You can advertise short term or long term.¬† Long term billing will be done on a quarterly basis, however, if you’d like to pay a year in advance, you will receive the last two months of the year at no charge, so annual advertising, paid in advance, is $150, $250 and $350 per year, depending on the size of your ad.¬† The graphic can link to whatever URL you tell us to link it to.
Don’t have a website to link to?¬† We can provide you with a page within the News Net site, for an additional $150/year (additional pages for the same business/organization are $50/yr.).¬† Design your own page, or we’ll put together a simple page for you at no additional charge (more sophisticated pages are available, but there may be a charge for design).¬† Your page address will be SierraMadreNews.Net/yourbusinessnamehere.¬† However, if you ‘d like to make it easier for your customers to remember, we can register a dedicated domain name for you and redirect it to your News Net page for $20/year.
