Website Advertising

Our two websites give you several good ways to make your company information instantly available via the internet:

  • Place your ad on either site.
  • Choose from eight screen placements on, such as Attractions, Dining, Lodging or Shopping.
  • You design the ad that works best for your business, or select a classified ad on our job bank.

It's easy to advertise with us. Display ads cost only $40/month, and if you buy 11 months, you get the twelfth month for free! Classified job postings are $5/week for 75 words.

Display ads should be 160 x 160 pixels, 72 dpi resolution and in jpeg format. The ad deactivates when the timeframe you specify expires, and you are notified. All ads include regularly scheduled activity reports emailed directly to you.
