We get you noticed precisely where your customers are - in Rockton and Roscoe - because that's where virtually all our readers are. If you want to advertise in Rockton and Roscoe, we don't force Delavan or Freeport on you. No other media is more local than us - we're hyperlocal. That saves you money.

We do precision advertising too. When our readers click on your online ads, they will see your precise offer or call to action. (As you've noticed, customers can't click on print or radio ads.) All our daily email subscribers have opted in to receive our newsletter, so they expect and want it.

If you like, we can help you create advertising graphics (what customers click on) and landing pages (where customers go when they click). If you want, you can manage your own ads, allowing you to change your graphics and landing page whenever needed.

 Ads appear in different sizes depending on the size of the screen. Basically, that means a narrower version of the ad appears on mobile phones, so we design two sizes for each ad.

Ad positions rotate among all the advertisers. So except for the leaderboard, no ad always appears at the top or the bottom. They take turns. For example, when people read an article, they see one leaderboard ad at a time, at the top of the screen. They see one of the standard banner ads in a random order. When they read the next article, a different leaderboard ad appears and they see another standard ad. When it's not a leaderboard ad's turn to be displayed at the top of the page, a smaller version of that ad appears below the calendar (web view) and at the bottom of the screen (mobile view).

We also offer group discounts and special rates, as well as sponsored content. For example, you could feature a "House of the Week" if you're a realtor. You can even manage your own ads online, changing them whenever you want.

Note: if you need to place a public notice/legal notice, by law it must be published in a print newspaper (made from trees), such as The Herald, so you should call them at 815-654-4850 to place those ads.
