Thank you for your interest in advertising on this site. This site receives visits from 50,000 to 70,000 different individuals a day during the snow season and has been ranked as one of the top 3 snowmobile related websites in the world for the past 10 years by an independent web analysis company! Not only that, but the vast majority of it’s visitors are persons planning a trip to the northern Midwest to come and have fun in our playground and are in need of information about the region. Those are just the types of people you need to get in touch with.
I also believe this site will be an asset to your business by reaching new people. Chances are most of your current advertising has already reached it’s audience. Advertising on this site opens up your business to a whole new list of potential customers. It also allows you to reach people wanting to make last minute plans. Imagine your area being hammered by a new snowstorm with 12″ of fresh snow down. Visitors to my site will have that information and will immediately turn to this directory to plan a last minute trip!
One final bit of information… The site does run all year long, with folks checking out the summer forecast for all of their outdoor activities.
The rates have not changed since its creation in 1999 and are the following:
STANDARD AD IN THE NORTHWOODS DIRECTORY – $25/year.
Includes: all your contact information, a brief description of your amenities and a link to your site if you have one. Please keep descriptions of your business to 50 words or less.
CLICK-ABLE BANNER AD ON ONE OF THE PAGES WITHIN THE SITE – $35/month.
Includes: A guarantee of at least 2000 impressions (views) of your ad per month. The ad is part of a rotation with other ads which refresh every time the page is reloaded. While I guarantee that you will receive at least 2,000 impressions per month for the $35, in reality you will likely receive much more than the minimum, as it is doubtful that I will ever have enough ads to completely use up the views that the site receives. Currently all the banners are being seen by 7,000-10,000+ visitors per month. The ad is graphical in nature and also provides a link to your site. All you need to do is supply the graphic (.gif, animated .gif or .jpg maximum size 550 pixels wide by 200 pixels tall) to be used as the banner as well as the web address to link it to. Please note: there is a 3 month minimum for a banner ad.
