Advertising on redbankgreen is a smart, efficient way to hit the absolute sweet spot of the market local that merchants, restaurants and other businesses want to reach.
And now, even individuals with something to sell or promote can get instant access to our audience of 50,000 visitors per month, according to Google Analytics.
See that box above? Of course you do; you can’t miss it. We call that a White Box.
What is White Box? White Box is a DIY ad and promo display like you’ve never seen before. It lets you deliver your message directly to redbankgreen readers within a specific article.
Whether you’re a restaurateur, the marketing director at a nonprofit or an apartment-dweller with furniture to sell, you can own an article’s White Box, with your messaging, for as long as you want.
Here’s how it works…
Let’s say you own a cupcake shop, and you’re reading an article on PieHole – redbankgreen‘s food page – about dessert stores in Red Bank. Well, you’ll probably want to call out your shop in that story. Why wouldn’t you, right? This is the perfect opportunity to speak to readers who’ve already qualified themselves as potential customers just by reading the article.
If another cupcake shop owner hasn’t already beaten you to it, all you do is click on the line, and it’s ready for whatever you want to say. You could say, hey, “Check out our sinfully good double-chocolate cupcakes: $3 each.”
Seriously, it’s that easy. You just write your message.
The next step is telling us how long you want to own the White Box. You can buy the White Box for a day, a week, a month or even a year. You’ll see the prices as you go through the process; the longer White Box has gone unpurchased, the lower the price.
The next step is to tell us where you want readers to be directed for more information. The White Box can link to your website or Facebook page or even a Pinterest page. And if you don’t want it to link anywhere, that’s fine too.
Then you enter your credit card info. Once we have this in our system, you can buy White Boxes in other articles without having to re-enter this info.
Now, we don’t allow disparaging messages and commentary in White Box, so there’s a quick approval process. But once your message is approved, your White Box goes live, instantly. Everyone who reads that article will start seeing your White Box.
Whether you’re a store owner, an individual with a car to sell or an organization looking to drum up attendance at your next event, White Box is an unbeatable way of hitting the absolute sweet spot of the market you want to reach.
Through White Box, you’ll be speaking to LOCAL readers who have expressed an interest in a subject matter that identifies them as YOUR AUDIENCE.
For example: say you’re a homeowner who’s holding a yard sale this Saturday and there’s a fresh story about yard sales. You want to be there, right? Or there’s an article about a car show, and you’ve got a ’65 Mustang to sell. Um, White Box, right?
Or you’re own the Walt Street Pub, and you’ve got this great band playing in your bar. You’re reading a story about what to do this weekend. Where are you going to promote this? White Box.
If you have any questions or suggestions about White Box, please don’t hesitate to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you’re a publisher interested in using this technology on your site, check out Broadstreetads.com and get in touch with Kenny Katzgrau. You’ll find his email address there.
Now, a word about adKisser…
CUTE NAME. BUT WHAT THE HECK IS ‘adKisser?’
adKisser is advertising technology that enables a local business to update its custom display ad on redbankgreen with a fresh message and photo instantly.
And it’s as easy as writing a Facebook post. In fact, updates are made via Facebook, Twitter, or even cellphone.
WAIT, SAY THAT AGAIN: INSTANT UPDATES? WHAT?
Instant. Immediate. As quick as a peck on the cheek. We call it “dynamic messaging.”
Say you own a restaurant. The minute you decide what that day’s lunch or dinner special is going to be, you can inform redbankgreen readers, while showing them a mouthwatering photo of the dish. That instant.
Or say you own a retail store. You can tout your newest merchandise, promote a sale or create a short-term special. Got a surplus of bananas, or hiking boots? Move that merch with adKisser! Have a hot act playing at your bar? Put fannies on the barstools with adKisser!
And here’s the thing all your dynamic messages are zapped to the absolute sweet spot of the market you want to reach: redbankgreen‘s highly informed and locally-conscious readers.
WOW. THAT’S, LIKE, REVOLUTIONARY. RIGHT?
Pretty much. No other advertising method can deliver a message as fresh, and as laser-targeted, as adKisser. Nothing.
IS adKisser THE LONG-SOUGHT CURE TO ‘AD BLINDNESS?’
It is, and the cure to blindness turns out to be the sound of your voice.
Here’s the special sauce: nobody can talk as engagingly about your business as you. But until now, you’ve had to lock into ad messages that grow stale the instant they’ve been seen. No more. Your message is now part of redbankgreen‘s ever-changing and always engaging content.
THIS IS KIND OF MINDBLOWING. WHY HAVEN’T I HEARD OF adKisser BEFORE?
adKisser is new technology, created expressly for redbankgreen by a local tech startup, Broadstreet Ads, based on what local business owners told us they needed and wanted. This is not some Madison Avenue or Silicon Alley idea of what Main Street merchants need. You spoke, we listened, and then we coded like mad. And it all happened in a basement right here in Red Bank.
WELL, YOU CAN KISS MY AD. HOW DO I MAKE THAT HAPPEN?
Just send us an email with your name and phone number and we’ll be delighted to answer all your questions and get you going with adkisser.
