Our ad options
We offer multiple advertising options in The Portager newsletter and on our forthcoming new website.
There are discounts for bulk purchases, which can be proportionally customized for your needs.
Ad design can be done by our team at no additional cost.
Action Ads appear at the top of the newsletter, just below the weather. These are a great way to publicize an upcoming event, a special offer or a timely discount. You can include links. Items that appear in this space tend to get more clicks than anywhere else in the newsletter. The word limit is 50 words.
Price: $125/each or $625/six
Star Ads allow businesses to embed a 600x300px image with a link to their business or landing page. This is our best value ad option.
Price: $75/each, $700/10, $1,250/20, $1,700/30 Full year price: $50/each for 50 runs
Spotlight Ads appear at the very top of each newsletter, just below The Portager logo with the text "Together with [Your Logo]" and a link to your website or landing page.
Price: $300/four, $1,000/16, $1,800/28
Native Ads give businesses an opportunity to share stories with our readers. These are designed to look like other stories in the newsletter but are labeled with our "SPONSORED BY..." tag at the top. Readers are most responsive to down-to-earth, human and local information. You can include links in the text and one image, which can also link to a URL of your choice. The word limit is 200 words.
Price: $350/each, $600/two, $850/three
The Portager is currently selling 300x150px ads to businesses and organizations to appear on our new website when it launches. Our first six launch sponsors will be grandfathered in to a lower ad rate for one full year. Website Ads appear on every page of the website along the left sidebar or between paragraphs of text.
