Advertising on The Daily Chronic is designed to be subtle yet effective. While we have carefully designed the layout of our website to minimize the amount of ads shown to viewers at one time, the ad sizes and placements are designed to be highly effective for our advertisers. Many cannabis related websites offer smaller ad spaces to maximize the amount of ads they can display at one time, causing paid advertisements to get lost among the competition and devaluing your advertising dollars. Our available advertising sizes are based on popular IAB standard sizes: 728 x 90 Leaderboard (compare to 468×60) 160 x 600 Sky Scraper (compare to 120×600) 300 x 250 Medium Rectangle (compare to 125×125) 300 x 600 Half Page (there is no comparison!) Our ads are designed and placed to provide a comparable value for each size based on location. Leaderboard and Skyscraper ads appear solely on the homepage, and are placed for maximum exposure. 300×250 ads appear on all pages of The Daily Chronic, above the fold and at the fold. Finally, Half Page ads are located towards the bottom of all pages except for the homepage, attracting the attention of the reader as they finish reading the article. Ready to purchase advertising?

Pay per click. Pay per impression. With our advanced ad server, you can pay your way, or combine several methods to test the effectiveness of each. CPD: Cost Per Day – With CPD advertising, you pay a flat rate per day that you wish your ad to display. This payment scenario is best utilized for premium “site takeover” ad campaigns, when all sitewide advertizing is replaced by your ad. A limited number of CPD sponsorships are also available for those advertisers who wish to puchase a set percentage of all advertising per day, regardless of number of impressions or clicks the ads receive. CPC: Cost Per Click – With CPC advertising, you pay only when your ad is clicked. You pre-purchase a specified number of clicks, and your ad will be served to viewers until your purchased clicks have been exhausted. CPM: Cost Per Impression – CPM stands for Cost Per Mille, or 1,000 ad impressions. This means that you pay a set rate for every 1,000 times your ad is served. This is the most cost effective, and recommended, method for purchasing advertising on The Daily Chronic. Whichever payment structure you choose, we will work to ensure the most effective advertising campaign for you. Ready to purchase advertising? Click here. Because Size Doesn’t Always Matter Size matters… or does it? Although we offer several different size ads on The Daily Chronic, we do not charge extra for larger sized ads. Each ad space has been carefully placed to be attractive and engaging for our viewers, making each ad unit equally attractive to advertisers. The only limitations of your ad sizes are the creatives you supply to us! Ready to purchase advertising? Click here. Get Creative Why should you settle for a text based ad from the other 420-friendly advertising networks when you can create graphic ads as unique as your brand?

Premium and Value Options A super sized 300x600 ad, strategically placed to capture a reader's attention at the end of each article. A super sized 300×600 ad, strategically placed to capture a reader’s attention at the end of each article. Do you have a premium brand that demands premium exposure? Are you looking for the best value for your advertising dollar? Whatever your advertising budget, The Daily Chronic has options available to you. Premium options include: Premium Placements – Premium placements ensure that your ad is only displayed in premium “above the fold” ad spaces. Available for most packages. Sitewide Takeover – For a premium price, your ads can displace all other ads on The Daily Chronic for a specific date and time period. During this time, only your ad is shown to visitors. Premium Price Override – In some competitive markets, paying a little more per impression or click could give your ad the edge over your competitors. Value options include: Value Placements – Save some money by purchasing ads that are mostly displayed in the lower half of the page. Because of the strategic placement of all advertising on The Daily Chronic, these are still highly effective ad spaces, but are available at a discount to offset the popularity – and higher price – of premium ad placements. Bulk Impressions or Bulk Clicks – If you’re not picky about who sees your ad, when it displays, or where it is shown, Bulk Impression or Bulk Click can really stretch your advertising dollars. These low cost impressions serve to viewers when no other higher paying ad is available. This is an ideal solution for websites or blogs looking for an increase in traffic at a low cost. Bulk impressions or clicks never expire, so save big when you buy a lot of impressions in advance! Ready to purchase advertising? Click here.
