Why pay for an ad if the listing is free?
Kent Island Online lists everyone for no charge, making us the most complete online
guide in the area! Paid advertising on Kent Island Online definately has its advantages over a free listing. If you are
in the middle of a group of listings with only a text listing, and your competition has a picture and link that stands
out, readers will likely miss your listing. Think about when you used to look things up in the Yellow Pages. The listing
that got your attention was most likely the one with a paid ad, a picture, bold, etc... The listings don't jump out like the paid ads do.
We will work with you to come up with the most beneficial placement for your ad, and to design the ad that commands
What does a paid ad look like?
We offer full-page sponsorships, banner advertisements, scrolling page specific
image ads, and 2"X2" static graphic
advertisements that can be placed on any page within Kent Island Online. We offer premium placement in your category and on
multiple pages. All advertisements are created in-house and are linked directly to your site. If you do not have a website, we
will refer you to a partner who will make you an amazing website at a discounted rate. We can design any size ad, and can use your pictures and graphics.
