Event Advertising Information
Are you having an event in Boulder City and would like to promote it to BoulderCity.com’s audience? Well, you’ve come to the right place for more information on how you can do just that! Below is everything you’ll want to know in the form of Frequently Asked Questions:
What does it cost to advertise an event?
A standard event ad will cost $75 to appear on the website for 2 weeks, as well as at least one time in the weekly eNewsletter that is sent out every Wednesday. This depends upon when the ad is placed, and if it crosses over 1 or 2 Wednesdays. We don’t accept ads for political events featuring one politician or political party.
Can I advertise for fewer or more than 7 days?
Absolutely! We can add additional days to the length of your ad’s run for only $5 per day, and your ad will be included in the eNewsletter for each Wednesday that crosses with your ad run. We’re happy to run your ad for fewer than 2 weeks, but we are unable to offer a discount.
Where does my ad appear on the website?
Your ad will be included in the “Upcoming Events” page that is accessible from the top menu.
How many people will see my ad?
Our website traffic varies each month, but Boulder City Social averaged 19,904 page views per month in 2018, so we would conservatively estimate that your ad will be displayed 4,500-5,000 times in 7 days. We have over 1,800 subscribers on our eNews mailing list, so you would be able to add additional views for those, as well.
Where does my ad link to when clicked?
Your ad will be linked to your website so our visitors can click on it and visit your site for more information. If you don’t have a website, just send us a flyer and we’re happy to make a PDF and host it to our server for you.
Do you make the artwork for the ad?
Definitely. Our Upcoming Events feature is specifically designed so that the ads have a consistent appearance, so we’ll take care of creating branded artwork for you to approve before we launch your ad.
How much notice do you need to list my event?
We can usually have it ready and posted in 48 hours (sometimes faster) after we get the green light (assuming you’ve sent us any materials you want used in the design and made payment, etc.).
How do I pay for my listing?
Easy … we’ll send you an online invoice that you can pay with a Visa, Mastercard or American Express. We will accept checks but require two weeks for them to process and clear our respective financial institutions.
What are my next steps?
To get started, you’ll just want to reach out and let us know that you’d like to run an event ad on Boulder City Social, which you can do using our contact form via the button below. Be sure to include:
- The event’s name, date, and location
- Whether or not you have a web page you want us to link to or if we’ll be hosting a flyer for you on our servers
- The number of days you’d like to run your ad so we can calculate the fee and send that back to you for approval before we send along the invoice for payment (after this we’ll get started on the artwork).
And that should do it! Oh yes — we should mention that we reserve the right to refuse to run an event ad for any one and for any reason (just our little disclaimer to be on the safe side).
Ready? Great! You can get things underway (or you can ask us any questions, of course) by reaching out through our contact form by clicking the button below!
