Web Advertisement Banners
Available Web Ad Sizes
Leaderboard 728 pixels width x 90 pixels height
Medium Rectangle 300 pixels width x 200 pixels height
All advertising sizes conform to Interactive Advertising Bureau standards.
Cost per Thousand Purchasing Model (CPM)
Minimum purchase of 10,000 impressions.
All banner ads will run on The Daily Collegian‘s web site as “Level Campaigns” for even daily distribution of impressions.
This requires a start date, an end date and a total number of impressions selected by the advertisers. Ads will then be impressed (appear on a Collegian web page) x number of times per day, determined by dividing the total number of impressions purchased by the total number of days scheduled.
For higher visibility we recommend scheduling more than one advertisement during your time frame, or purchasing larger quantities of impressions for a smaller duration.
Ads running less than 3 months
$11 per thousand impressions
Ads running 3 months to 6 months
$10 per thousand impressions
Ads running 6 months to less than 12 months
$9 per thousand impressions
Ads running 12 months or longer
$8 per thousand impressions
Example: How much?
Client purchases 50,000 impressions to run over three weeks (21 days)
$11 per thousand x 50 (50,000 impressions) = $550
How often will my ad be seen?
Given the example above:
50,000 impressions divided by 21 days = 2,381 impressions per day.
The actual number of views for your banner will depend upon its duration and the number of impressions you have purchased.
