Minnesota-Scores realizes that the people using this site are mostly local to the teams they support. That is why we want to provide you as a business owner an opportunity to not only support the local communities you serve, but get the best bang for your buck available.
We setup this ad solely for the local small businesses that thrive in communities throughout Minnesota. You can purchase the ad for any length of time between 1 month and 1 year.
How to sponsor a page
- Let us know you are interested in finding out more about this School Sponsor Ad by emailing us using this link email@example.com (it will include the proper Subject Line of “School Sponsor Ad Inquiry”)
- In the email tell us about your business, the school(s) team pages you would like to advertise on and support (can be more than one), and the specific start and end dates of the ad.
- We will reply with a price quote for the time frame you have chosen based on industry standards and the previous three years worth of data for the School page. In other words, this is not cookie cutter “one-price-fits-all” advertising, your price will depend solely on how often your ad is viewed.
- After agreeing on the terms, provide us with a 728x90 ad to upload to the site.
- To keep page continuity this is the only ad size we are allowing at this time.
What pages can I sponsor?
The School Sponsor Ads will be shown on every team page for that school. So if you buy football, you also get Volleyball, Soccer, etc. If you would like to expand your reach using Minnesota-Scores advertising elsewhere on the site, contact us for more information using firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can we put anything into an entry?
Yes and no. Entries do not have to point to another website. They could just be a fan sponsoring their favorite team or school, or the entries can point to any (non-offensive) website within our guidelines. You can also put any type of message that fits our guidelines. All entries will be screened before appearing on the site and we reserve the right to reject any entry for any reason.
Can I put a customized message in the ad?
Yes – if you would like to put something like “Go Cougars!”, “Awesome Blossoms are Awesome!” or “J&B Foods is proud to Sponsor <insert team name> sports!” above your ad, we can. This is an optional message and is limited to 255 characters, you do not have to create anything special just tell us the text you would like to display. It will show as “J&B Foods sponsors this page!” above the ad as well. All of this will draw attention to your ad, while not being obtrusive and annoying to the viewer.
How much does it cost?
This is prime real estate, as they say. Not only is this ad always in view for the people on this page, but it will be directed specifically towards the people you need to advertise to. This type of concentrated advertising is what most companies are looking for – a captive audience of your customers!
The final price will depend on the length of time your ad appears and the demand we have for this school. We have a rate card available for view and are very competitive with other web sites in the region. We charge per 1000 page views, and in most cases will be cheaper than an ad in your local schools game programs.
Can I advertise a website or product this way?
Yes you may, but the guidelines still apply.
Can I have this page every year?
Yes, you will be given the option to renew a page before anyone else gets a shot. However, it is possible that the cost could change after your original contract is up.
