First of all, thank you for visiting CantonCompass.com and checking our advertising options.
As a new business, we really need your support. The good news is, we understand what small- and medium-sized local businesses need in the marketing department – an efficient, effective campaign.
That’s why the Canton Compass has partnered with CTNewsJunkie and the Independent Media Network. Together we are a full-service, digital media buying & marketing firm with all the bells and whistles.
What does this mean? Why buy an ad on Canton Compass?
- Get in on the ground floor: Right now we are just looking to get up and running with a charter group of advertisers, a select group of small- or medium-sized businesses that care about Canton, understand the need for news coverage, and who believe a civic-engaged community is a healthy community.
300×250 or 300×150 banners (both shown at left), including static images or any kind of animation.
The right column is split into Upper & Lower rotations. Banners will move around randomly in each, ensuring that every sponsor shares top billing equally in either section, based on price.
Ad Specs: We can accept jpeg, gif, or png files, as well as Flash/swf. However, because some mobile devices aren’t compatible with Flash, we suggest using animated gif files instead if you want to use animation. File size should be no more than 50kb-100kb for a static banner, and animations should be no more than a few hundred kb, but we can also test banners in advance. As a rule, try to keep file sizes down so that the ads don’t take too long to load.
Email Blast Sponsorship:
Exclusive: A text-based message of up to 60 words (with multiple links) near the top of the email, or a 400×100 banner.
We offer a free events calendar that visitors can search and post their events. We can enhance the visibility of those events for a small fee by adding them as a “featured event” that will appear on the site’s home page and also will be shared on our social networks.
Canton Compass Business Directory
Buy your own page or listing in CantonCompass’ Local Business Directory. This will improve your own site’s search engine profile or it can serve as your own basic web site. We can also have your banner follow people who have visited your listing.
Help Wanted Directory
Up to 250 words per listing (multiple jobs per listing is fine and multiple links can be embedded). Each ad will be shared at least once a week on our Facebook page as well.
