Local businesses need local customers. Advertising at Mile High on the Cheap is one of the easiest, most affordable and most effective ways to get your business in front of savvy, action-oriented Front Range customers. Mile High Cheapskates are dedicated deal lovers. We offer:
- Banner advertising
- Sponsored posts and social media blasts
- Giveaways and other custom opportunities
MHOTC can post your basic banner ad and link it to the website of your choice. Most ads are positioned in the left column of the site and are rotated periodically within that column to give each of them a fresh position. Please contact us for rates. Below is an example of what a basic display ad looks like.
The basic ad is a maximum 170px by 170px. For a slight upcharge, you can submit a larger ad — same 170px width but 1.5 times deeper (255px deep) or double-deep (340px).
Limited spots are available in the right hand column. These ads are 300px by 250 px.
Sponsorship of a specific MHOTC page is also available. These pages see high traffic during specific times of the year and are a way to ensure maximum viewership of your product or service. Below is an example of an ad that appears on our Garage Sale page. This ad is 728px wide by 90 to 125 px deep (see Ski Rex sample below). Other pages open to ads include Kids Eat Free, 4th of July, Halloween Haunts, Holiday Craft Shows, Fall Corn Mazes, See Santa, Food & Drink, Easter Egg Hunts, Always Free and more. Please contact us for rates.
Leaderboard ads (728 px wide by 90 px deep, see Ski Rex sample above) that run on the top of our Daily Email blast are available at a daily rate, with discounts for a run of 7 or more days. Placing an ad in our daily email ensures it will be seen by 10,000+ subscribers. Please contact us for additional information.
We also offer a variety of specialty custom ad styles. Many of these require no graphic design on your part, just an image or logo and copy. We do all the work for you. Here are some examples (there are other options available, just ask) that are available for only a small extra per month charge.
Lazy Ad – If you’re in a pinch and need a quick ad made, just send us a photo, your business details, and voilà, an ad.
Coupon – Create a cutout-style coupon with an optional image to promote a sale or event. When users click on it, they are be taken to a mobile-friendly page where they can print the page or keep it handy on their mobile device.
The Listing/Table – Easily list movie showtimes, restaurant menus, sports schedules, event schedules, etc.
The Amazing 3D Gallery – This displays 6 images and captions of your choosing in a very slick rotating cube (on the latest browsers). Great for capturing attention, especially when it comes to food items.
The Hover – This is an ad which, when hovered over, will expand outward and display a second image in either the top, right, left, or bottom direction. Responsive and mobile friendly.
The Countdown – Countdown to a big event or end of a sale. Doesn’t require an image. Displays a customizable and human-readable countdown, such as “7 days, 3 hours, and 10 minutes,” which updates.
IMPORTANT!! We require a JPG or PNG of the ad. Please include a border if the background is white. If you need assistance in creating your ad or converting it to a JPG or PNG please contact us for details, specifications, or recommendations for graphic design artists.
Please note: MHOTC reserves the right to refuse publication of any ad it deems inappropriate for the site.
