The Medicine Hat News website offers a wide array of advertisement zones that can be used to advertise your business. These ad zones are sold by both impressions and time frames. For example, if you purchased 50,000 impressions for your ad to be served during a 2 month period, our advertisement delivery service will dish out your ad 50,000 times during those 2 months. The cost for this is based on the prominence of the advertisement zone which any Sales associate from The Medicine Hat News can help you with. The offered advertisement zones are IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau) standard and are as follows:

  • Leaderboard (728×90)
  • Big Box (300×250)
  • Sticky Leaderboard (728×90)
  • Interstitial (1500×800)
  • Long Leaderboard (970×90)
  • Rectangle (300×100)

In addition to these IAB standard ad sizes, your advertisements can be targeted to specific pages for you to get the most advertising possible for your business. For example, if you have a local sports business, simply request your advertisement be applied to only the Local Sports section of The Medicine Hat News website. This effectively targets your advertisement specifically to visitors who have both an interest in local sports and are reading about local sports on The Medicine Hat News website. Alternatively, maybe you want to serve an ad to users viewing the website on their smartphones, The Medicine Hat News can do that!
