Year-long ad programs are activated upon payment and end on Dec. 31st or until replaced for the following season. All ads are outbound-linked to the website URL the advertiser designates. Ad graphics are to be provided by the advertiser at the size specified; if the advertiser does not have existing ads, we can design them for $20 each.
NOTE THAT ALL YEAR-LONG AD OPTIONS INCLUDE A CUSTOM EDITORIAL OFFER! NEOHgolf.com will work with the advertiser to create a direct sale promotion or coupon offer exclusive to our readers, with a story about that special offer posted to the website on the date you schedule.
SINGLE STORY AD – $199 for 10 ads (or $25 each)
Have your ad graphic posted after the opening paragraph within the body of one editorial story! This full-width ad is placed directly in the content stream so that it can’t be missed. Great for promotion, branding and search engine link building.
SITEWIDE AD – $495/year (or $95/month)
Post your graphic ad on every page of the NEOHgolf.com website! Your 300×120 pixel ad (shown here) will appear on the home page, on every Category page, on each story content page, and on all the Tournament Calendar pages too!
TOP OF THE SITE FULL BANNER – $895/year (or $195/month)

2016 TOURNAMENT CALENDAR LISTINGS & EVENT PROMOTIONS
The NEOHgolf.com Tournament Calendar is the most highly-trafficked section of the website. The Calendar is the region’s go-to source for players to find golf events and entry details. In 2016, Northeast Ohio Golf will expand this section with a brand new Charity Golf Event Calendar, by popular request. This new calendar will list golf event fundraisers to NEOHgolf.com readers. Courses or groups can promote their events on either Calendar for a nominal fee based on the amount of promotion and editorial coverage they wish to receive:
Calendar Listing: $30 per event
Calendar post includes an event information page with the date, location, format and entry contact details.
Calendar Listing + Preview Story + Email Newsletter Promo: $125 per event
This pre-event promotion service includes a listing on one of the Calendars, a 150+ word Preview Story posted two weeks out from the event date (with a notice sent out to all of our social media followers at the time of posting, too!), and a mention in the weekly Email Newsletter one week out from the event date. After the event, we will also post any supplied tournament result content (i.e. a game story, scores, photos and other media that you send to us by email) to build event ‘brand awareness’ for the following year.
Calendar Listing + Preview Story + Email Newsletter + Full Editorial Coverage: $250 per event
This option includes a Calendar Listing, plus the Preview Story and Email Newsletter promotions outlined above, plus the writing and posting of a Feature Story (the site’s main story) from the on-location editorial coverage created by NEOHgolf.com: a 300+ word game story, full-field scores list, photos, video, sponsor logos, and notices to all of the followers of our social media accounts.
