New Advertising Structure for SkiSoutheast this Season!
08.26.14 08:54 AM
After looking closely at advertising trends on the internet, we have decided to limit the number of ads that appear in each spot on SkiSoutheast, ResortCams and our weather content this season. Over the past few seasons we have accepted ad placement such that in most advertising zones (on most pages of the websites) we've allowed as many as 4-5 ads to rotate in each position.
THIS SEASON we have made the decision to "roll back" our ad placement to the model that we implemented when we first started SkiSoutheast.com years ago. Simply put ALL ad placement will be accepted on a "First-Come-First-Served" basis. That means that early ad buyers will get the best spots AND we will run NO MORE than TWO ads in ANY ad zone on the website - with MOST ad zones will only running ONE ad.
That means that your ad will show up to EVERY visitor of the website, every time, instead of rotating as one-of-three-or-four ads per zone. This move will insure that every advertiser will have huge increases in IMPRESSIONS (the number of times your ad appears) AND your ad will see huge increases in CLICKS or VISITS to your website!
Our current ads are set to expire October 1st and at that time ALL ad spots will be open for sale - AGAIN on a first-come-first-served basis. We have ALREADY accepted early ad purchases with the heavy push scheduled to take place beginning the week of September 8-15th.
If you're a current advertiser and want to insure a top spot and don't want to wait until our team contacts you, please call today and speak with Mike at 828.963.7286. We're expecting a big season as the 2013-2014 was awesome and according to The Old Farmer's Almanac our entire region is expecting colder than normal conditions for the entire winter.
