Advertising

We offer both print and digital advertising.

  • Print ads are billed traditionally, based on the space they occupy on a page, per week. See examples below. The print edition is published on Mondays, 48 times per year.
  • Digital ads are billed based on Traffic (CPM) OR Campaign.
    • Traffic (CPM) - Advertisements are billed at a predetermined rate per 1000 impressions, known as CPM (cost per mille). So once the ad is seen 1000 times, it will stop appearing on the website whether that takes two days or two weeks. Minimum charge for one unit applies. We can provide a report afterwards upon request.
    • Campaign - Book an advertisement to run for a specific duration. We bill it in advance based on the CPM rate combined with average website traffic. You can choose the size and location of the ad and wheather or not it's displayed occasionally or consistantly.
