Here is what we offer:

  • Two advertising positions that are run-of-site (they appear on every page of our site).
  • Both positions are 300×250 pixels in size.
  • Advertisers may change their ads at any time at no additional cost. Allow one business day for changes to occur.
  • No contracts. If you want to advertise for just one month, we are happy to accommodate that. You may cancel your advertising at any time – we will prorate your bill.
  • Interested in a shorter run, such as less than a month? We can provide this on a space-available basis.

We use a ‘share of site’ advertising model. This is how it works:

  • You and other advertisers equally share all of the site’s impressions.
  • You are guaranteed a minimum of 12,000 impressions per month.
  • At the end of each month, we will send you a report showing how many impressions and click-thrus you received.
  • We do not increase the number of advertisers until Great Northwest Wine’s monthly traffic allows. So until we can deliver at least another 12,000 impressions per month, all existing advertisers share any additional impressions at no extra cost.

How much does it cost?

  • You pay a flat fee of $300 per month, regardless of how many additional impressions are delivered. This makes it easy to budget.
  • If for any reason we do not deliver at least 12,000 impressions, your bill will be prorated to reflect the lower amount.
  • We make it easy for you to pay your bill. You may choose to pay by check, credit card, PayPal – whatever works for you.
