MEDIA KIT / MEDIA SPECIFICATIONS FOR ADVERTISING
FOR: FIFTY STATES HALF MARATHON CLUB PAGES AND HALFMARATHONSEARCH.COM HALF MARATHON CALENDAR PAGES
* All Ads run from the 1st of the month through the last day of the month (if available, we can sometimes work out exceptions, and week ad ons).
* IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR ADS AT SUCH LOW RATES .... we do NOT provide Analytics any longer. We do not have the manpower and hours to pull this data, so in exchange we offer exceptional rates. OUR MONTHLY AD RATES ARE VERY LOW. There are not many websites out there that compete with our exclusive USA only half marathon market and our calendar remains the most up to date half marathon calendar in the USA of any half marathon calendars on the web. ALSO ONE OTHER REASON we prefer to keep our ad rates low instead of hiring someone (which would increase the ad space cost to you) to pull data, is data, such as unique visits, etc, is really not very valid any longer. Most sites inflate their data with fake traffic.
The key factors to look at when considering our site are:
1) We are a 100% USA Half Marathon Calendar
2) 99.9% of the time we are the most up to date Half marathon Calendar on the web
3) We are on the first page of google for almost all half marathon term searches.
4) Only meaningful to some of you, .... We are 100% Veteran Owned :)
* Ads do not rotate - they are 100% your ad during your paid timeframe, and the ad will link to your website and will open in a new window. Each ad is one specific ad location that you choose (based on availability). All ads are a fixed monthly price. (discounted options are available for multiple month purchases - see pricing options below).
NOTE: If you purchase google ads, I guarantee you they are going to be visible all over our website if you are using any type of half marathon keywords. Why pay $150 for less than a week with google, when you can have our half marathon "targeted" spot "exclusively" for an entire month for that? The investment is a no brainer. Target an exclusive running and USA half marathon market without your competition clicking on your google ads to hike up your cost.
* No ad is reserved until purchase is made. The spot is available for anyone to purchase until actual payment is made. Once payment is received your spot will be officially reserved.
