When it comes to advertising, marketing and promotion, the Internet is inarguably one of the most effective and powerful mediums at your disposal. In this day & age, however, spending your advertising dollars wisely is of the utmost importance ... and choosing the right websites to advertise on or otherwise support can mean the difference between money well-spent and money wasted. Are you reaching the people you want or need to? Are your ads getting lost in a sea of others? Are you being given proper consideration, guidance, and assistance as an advertiser? Are you being shown big numbers and confusing statistics, but not seeing results?
At WilliamsportLIVE, we've made the conscious decision to limit the number of ads on any given page, to properly place ads on pages with related content, and to only work with and support local advertisers. On WilliamsportLIVE, your ads won't be competing with national chains or corporate entities for attention, we do not make use of Google Ads, pop-ups, or irrelevant “pay-per-click” ads, and because we are "focal on local," your ads will be reaching the thousands of people you most want to reach ... the people that live in, work in, and visit this area, and that will patronize your establishment, utilize your services, buy your goods, attend your event, or join your cause.
In fact, we are so committed to supporting local prosperity and community enhancement that we'll tell you if our website isn't a good "fit" for you, and we'll even make recommendations as to where you could better invest your advertising dollars to achieve the success you're hoping for.
By partnering with, sponsoring, or advertising on WilliamsportLIVE, you'll not only be spending your advertising dollars very wisely, you'll also be supporting our community-minded goals toward playing an important role in the ongoing renaissance of Williamsport and toward enhancing the quality of life in our community.
