    In May 2014, we had over 208,000 Page Views, 3.5 Million Banner Impressions, and a Twitter Reach of over 35 Million.  June could see an increase as much as 40% based upon our current statistics.

    We have recently rolled out our Shale Markets Smart Banner program.  Each advertiser can choose key words or tags based upon their package (See List of Tags Here).  Since all news stories have up to 8 tags, when someone views a news story that has your tag, your banner will be added to the rotation for that tag for the header 728×90 and for position 1 of the right margin 250×250 banners.  This is a great addition as it now shows your banner to more relevant readers, and the chances of a click are much greater.

    To keep things simple, we have 2 basic Ad Packages with some options.

    Package 1 ($250/Month):

    • 728×90 Banner ad on (This will always be part of rotation on header of home page and all non-news pages, and on footer of all pages.  Will also rotate on some News pages.)
    • We will post one Press Release to our site and distribute it to our network every 3 months (Provided by Client)
    • One tag to associate to your banner

    Package 2 ($375/Month):

    • 728×90 Banner ad on (Same as Package 1)
    • 250×250 Banner ad on shared between position 2 & 3 (Will appear in right margin of every page in rotation). This will greatly increase your monthly banner impressions.
    • We will post one Press Release to our site and distribute it to our network every month (Provided by client)
    • A Landing Page on our website to help drive traffic to your site from Google/Bing/Yahoo.  Note that this page is only viewable and searchable during your subscription to this plan.  This is very powerful as it allows your company to take advantage of our high rankings in Google.  This page can have links to your website, can have links to pdf brochures, and can even have a contact form that will send you an email when filled out. This page will be indexed by Google, Bing and Yahoo within a couple days of creation. 
    • 2 tags to associate to your banner (Note, these two tags will be associated to both banners.  You cannot differentiate unless you purchase additional tags as shown below.)


    • Additional tags for 728×90 banner in header ($40/month)
    • Additional tags for 250×250 banner in position 1 of right sidebar ($60/month) [Available only with package 2]
    • Each extra press release distribution ($75)
