The Virtual Vermonter - Advertising
Looking to advertise on The Virtual Vermonter? Advertising can help your site to stand out, and the ability to place your logo or an image of your B&B or other product at the top of the page will increase your click-through rate.
There are currently two ways that you can advertise on The Virtual Vermonter: Banners and Featured Listings.
We'll run your banner on any page of our site that carries top banners (such as the one you see at the top of this page next to our logo), your choice of page, for $99 a year. Banners for pages are first come, first serve. This is an excellent way to get your site noticed (we are currently running about 500,000 "hits" a month on the site!).
***Special: For a limited time, get your banner on three pages for the price of two. Place your banner on any three of our pages for one year for $198!***
Featured listings refer to our town/index pages (ex. Burlington > Lodging). With a featured listing, your site will appear before all others at the top of the page (once again, first come, first serve; if we get, say, three featured listings for one page, the person who signed up first will get the #1 position, the second #2, etc.). You'll also be able to place a picture (100x100 pixels) next to your listing, a real boon amongst all the other simply-text listings. Featured listings can really help you to rise above your competition in terms of exposure on our site, and the cost is a very reasonable $50 a year.
Contact us with what your advertising needs are (including the site name and url), and we'll e-mail an invoice to you as well as information on where you can e-mail the graphic for the ad to. You can then pay via check, money order or credit card (credit card orders will be accepted through PayPal). The ad will be posted within 5 days of receiving payment (usually much sooner) and will run for exactly one calendar year. One month before the ad expires, we'll drop you an e-mail letting you know and offering you the chance to easily purchase placement for another year.
Create Your Own Banners/Ads
There are several sites online where you can create your own banner or block ad. While we can't personally vouch for any of these sites, they all appear to be free and of good quality.
