Ad Campaigns are easy here at the History of Redding: The cost? $200 a month, no contracts, no hassles...just a spike in traffic to your website, store, restaurant, business or event. Don't have a website? I'll design one for you, at no cost, your sponsorship covers it. Need SEO help? your sponsorship covers it.

For $200 a month you receive:

  • Ad space where ever you want it on all my sites and blogs- in text, banner ads, full page spreads or all of the above.

    We do not confuse you with terms like: "cost-per-click" or "page impressions" we simply run your ads all over the site, coming up with unique ideas to promote your business.

  • Search Engine Optimization. We will review your business and find the right keywords for you. Then we will promote your business through these keywords and bring your site and business more traffic. Also, keep in mind anyone reading my pages will be seeing your ads. That means a lot of exposure in the local area, as I cover Redding, Georgetown, Weston, Wilton, Ridgefield.

  • Web Design. Don't have a site? We'll make one for you and host it. Have a site already? I'll maintain it for free.

Proceeds from ad sales go directly towards the service fees, maintenance and expansion of this site...we have no rent or administrative costs.

Online vs. Offline Ad Campaigns:

Here is what to consider when measuring the costs of print ads vs. online campaigns.

  • When you run a print ad you "hope" people see it, when you run an ad on History of Redding we'll make sure people see it! This site has 40,000+ page views every month and that number continues to grow.

    That's 40,000+ page views a month by people interested in Redding and the surrounding area:

    • viewing an ad about your company,
    • reading positive testimonials about you & your company,
    • downloading a PDF about your company,
    • printing coupons to use in your store
    • seeing photos of your projects, products and services, etc...
    • the possibilities are plentiful and affordable.

  • Search Engines are used daily to find products and services. 70% of Americans consult the web before making local buying decisions. History of Redding ranks highly for most terms relating to the local area.

  • When you purchase a print ad you don't have too many options in terms of placement. When you advertise with the History of Redding you can have an ad anywhere you want it for as long as you want it there. And I'll send you weekly reports showing you your traffic at the site.

  • Print ads are visible for a day or so before they end up in the trash. An online ad stays online until you take it down and continues to promote your business 24/7.

The details of what I've touched on above:

1. Unlike print ads, online ads do not get thrown away. When you run a print ad there is a very short window of opportunity to capture potential buyers attention. This is not the case online, when you advertise on HistoryofRedding.com your ad and/or company profile remains online until you ask to have it removed. In addition to posting your ad, company profile, article about you and your business, etc...we monitor page views for you and work to position your information in areas that will give you the most exposure...something you can't do in print. You can run as many ads as you'd like for $200 a month here.

2. Search Engines find new web sites via web links. If you do a couple searches on Redding, Georgetown, and Branchville related terms you will find the HistoryofRedding.com listed. I do not pay to be ranked this high, I work at it, adding new content weekly and researching topics people are interested in locally. Because I add new content so often, the search engines visit often to see what I have added. What does that mean to you? It means that if I run an article about your company and link to your website, the next time the search engines visit my sites they will find a link to your site which in turn will lead to more traffic.

3. Local Search is Gaining Momentum.

"Local search is fast becoming the most exciting search vertical on the web. Recent research by the Kelsey Group reported that 70% of Americans consult the web before making local buying decisions.

By exploring local search, small business owners and marketers can benefit from both direct lead generation and general brand awareness."

- Search Engine Trends Article by by Daniel Bower, 12 February 2008

54% of search users have substituted Internet/Search for the phone book.

People no longer search with generic terms, they use specific terms to find specific things in specific locations. If you want a Barber in Branchville, CT, you would search for "Barber+Branchville, CT" not just "Barber". This is what they mean by "local search". This is a topic I've been well aware of for years and a topic I can assist you and your company with. A sponsorship with HistoryofRedding.com can greatly improve your local search results.

4. I Monitor the "pulse" of the Area. I keep an eye on local news & events to keep up on local topics of interest and use a number of tools and services to monitor what people are searching on relating to the local area. Once you are a site sponsor I work for you on multi-levels and this is one of them...placing your information where people are viewing content and creating content people are interested in. The site focuses on the past and present times of Redding, Georgetown, and Branchville.

So what are people searching on in Redding? Ask me

5. We Can Give You Visitor Reports. The Internet takes the guesswork out of measuring campaign results. Unlike traditional media, just about any aspect of an online ad can be tracked and improved. This is something you just can't do with print media. I provide you with page view reports, demographics, referring web sites, and more. Our page views are over 40,000+ every month! We have had over 2 million page views since 1998. 480,000 in 2009.

The uses of Cloverdale are endless. The product is a water based surfactant that is petroleum free. It contains quaternary ammonium compound derived from coconuts which is the disinfectant. How one uses Cloverdale depends on the job at hand.

For Example: last year when we power washed our house we used Cloverdale instead of bleach and we did not need to cover any plants or bushes and we didn't lose any plants or bushes.

The Original Cloverdale Cleaner is a concentrate that is diluted with water. For instance, 8 parts water to 1 part concentrate is the all-purpose solution. Cloverclean is our ready-to-use spray bottle with a concentrate line on it for remixing using the concentrate and adding water. One quart of concentrate will make 16 or more pint spray bottles. Very cost effective for use in the kitchen,bathroom, workshop,indoors or outdoors.
