Program

There are currently two size options in the banner ad program: 125x125 (square) and 125x240 (tall rectangle). Banners run in the left column on most pages on the www.blackstonevalley.org website, underneath the left column navigation links. Please note that banners do not display on PDFs or certain pre-formatted pages; however, we have added banner ads to the Member Directory, which after the homepage is the most visited part of the site.

Reports

The host will make ad impression (number of times an ad was served) and clickthrough rate (the number of times someone clicked on an ad) reports available to the Chamber on a quarterly basis; the Chamber can then at its option extract these reports for members who desire reports.

Creative

The Chamber may provide creative for any members who cannot or do not want to provide their own creative. The cost of ad creative depends on a number of factors, including the type of ad, the complexity of the ad, and revisions of the ad. Please contact the Chamber for more info.

It is expected that ads are delivered to the Chamber ready to deploy and in accordance with the ad specs below. If there is a problem with the creative (incorrect format, banner too large, etc.), either the member will rework the ad to meet the specs or the Chamber can rework or recreate the ad as necessary based on an hourly rate of $75.

The Chamber's website host can provide bridge pages for members who do not have their own websites for an additional fee; if a member is interested in this option, please contact the Chamber for details.

Terms

Terms of sale: Net 30 days from invoice date upon approval of credit. Commissions: rates stated are net rates, advertising agencies should contact the Chamber for gross rates to utilize for commission based sales.

Cancellations: notice of cancellation of advertising must be received in writing prior to the scheduled start date. If the Chamber or its agents have provided creative for a cancelled commitment a creative charge of $150 may be billed at the Chamber's discretion.
