This document outlines our Annual Sponsorship opportunities.
Annual Sponsorships are now available for the 2012 - 2013 season. These are "box ads" that appear on our article pages. They include one photo of your choice, your website and other important links, and 1-2 sentences containing a brief description of your business.
We allow only two sponsors per article, which means your company's name is not "lost" in the midst of others as often happens with other local media. Only 24 such sponsorships are allowed this season in order to maximize your exposure to our readers.
Included in the Annual Sponsorship is an article about your business. This article is usually in the form of an "advertorial". It's like a feature story about your business, service, or product, but you have control over what is written. The word "advertorial" is a combination of the words "advertisement" and "editorial".As an added benefit, our sponsors enjoy frequent mention on our Facebook Fan Page. We run contests for prizes in order to encourage participation on the page and for new subscriptions to the magazine.
The chart below shows the rates for the 2012-2013 season. You'll notice that the deeply discounted cost for including the winter months makes an annual sponsorship very affordable.
Sign up before March 20 and your Annual Sponsorship cost is $225
Ad copy may be changed at any time; deadline is Friday at 4:00 pm the week prior to publication.
