Advertise on Northeast Ohio Golf
After another great year with continued growth in unique visitors, total visitors and page views, Northeast Ohio Golf looks forward to working with its supporters again to reach the core golfers of the region for the 2014 golf season.
The 2014 ad rates listed below are a great value, at the same rates as last year. Every ad option is first-come/first-serve, so pick yours today!
2014 ADVERTISING OPTIONS AND RATES:
HOME PAGE LINK SUPPORTER – $50: Get a text link that appears on the home page of the Northeast Ohio Golf website for the entire year! Supporter links appear near the footer of the home page. They can be posted in your own name or the name of your business, and include an outbound link to whatever webpage you choose (company website, personal Facebook page, etc.). A bonus link is also included on the Sponsor Roll page. An inexpensive way to show your support!
HOME PAGE SITE SUPPORTER – $100: (JUST ONE LEFT FOR 2014!) Get an eye-catching 222×90 graphic ad tile (ad size shown at right >>) with an outbound link on the home page of Northeast Ohio Golf! A great way to post your company logo at a very low cost. Only four spots are available near the bottom of the home page. Includes a bonus text link and sponsor description on our Sponsor Roll page, too.
TOURNAMENT CALENDAR SPONSOR – $200: Get a 300×120 graphic ad tile (<< ad size shown at left) with an outbound link posted throughout the Tournament Calendar system! The Tournament Calendar is the most highly trafficked set of pages on the website after the home page. All ads purchased here appear across the entire Tournament Calendar page set: on the monthly calendar layout; on the Tournament details page; and on the Location details page. Tournament Calendar page advertisers also get a text link and company description on our Sponsor Roll page.
CONTENT SPONSOR – $350: Have a specific story about a product, event or destination that you’d like to share with the readers of Northeast Ohio Golf? Then together let’s create a content piece! The advertiser supplies a written story of up to 500 words (or we’ll write it for you for an extra $50), plus we’ll post any images/logos/photos/video you want Northeast Ohio golfers to see. The advertiser determines the date the story is to run, and we post it live into the content stream on the requested date, where it will remain forever archived. (Note that the information has to be for an acceptable product or service and be relevant to our readers; NEOHgolf.com reserves the right to review everything, revise any content as we see fit, and refuse any ad that just doesn’t feel right.) The first few paragraphs of the story will appear on the homepage when posted, with a “Read More >” link to the remainder of the story on a permanent page. The listed author of the story will be the company or a named representative of the company, to make it clear to our readers that the story is indeed a long-form advertisement. Package also includes a year-long company description and text link on the Sponsor Roll page.
CATEGORY SPONSOR – $495: Be the exclusive Sponsor for every story within a specific site Category — and get ad postings that stay built into those stories forever! (See a sample Category Sponsor ad here; it’s the gray ad below the headline, above the story.) A Category Sponsor gets an ad on each and every posting for a particular story category — for example, all of the ADGA stories, or all of the Cleveland Skins Game stories, etc. Your company’s graphic 600×120 banner ad with an outbound link will appear at the top of every story posted to the editorial category you select for the year. These ads remain built into the stories permanently: the ads and links don’t expire at the end of the year and are never removed, meaning your ad appears in every ‘look-back’ while building permanent backlinks to your website! Category choices are first-come/first-serve and are exclusive once reserved. Also includes a year-long text link on the Sponsor Roll page.
BLOCK SPONSOR – $495: Get a 300×120 ad block (same size as Tournament Calendar ads, shown again at right >>) in the lower part of the right column on every page of the website as a Site Sponsor! The ad will link back to whatever landing page you choose on your website. Includes a story announcing the sponsorship to our readers, thank you plugs in various stories, a season wrap-up editorial as the year closes, and a company/product description and outbound link on the Sponsor Roll page. It’s a way to get significant reader exposure from an inexpensive ad buy.
FEATURED SPONSOR – $995: Get one of those big ads shown in the right hand column of every page (<< ad size shown at left) posted all year long! There are four year-long Featured Sponsor slots available. Included are: a 300×250 graphic ad on every page of the website in the right-hand column; plus a 300×120 graphic ad on both the Tournament Calendar and the Email Newsletter Registration pages; plus several editorial mentions throughout the year including a story announcing the sponsorship to our readers, thank you plugs in various stories and a season wrap-up editorial as the year closes; plus a weekly mention and text link within the Northeast Ohio Golf email newsletter; and finally, plus a company/product description and outbound link on the Sponsor Roll page.
TOP-PAGE SPONSOR – $1,495: Take the top ad spot on the Northeast Ohio Golf website! The Top-of-the-Site Sponsor gets the full-width 950×90 banner located at the very top of every page on the website for the year, plus all of the other benefits of a Featured Sponsor: a 300×120 ad on both the Tournament Calendar and the Email Newsletter Registration pages; several editorial mentions throughout the year, including a story announcing the sponsorship to our readers, thank you plugs in various stories, and a season wrap-up editorial as the year closes; the top billing and a text link within the weekly Northeast Ohio Golf email newsletter; and a company/product description and outbound link on the Sponsor Roll page.
