The Morinville News is published online daily Monday through Friday on MorinvilleNews.com. Our news posts are automatically sent to Twitter, Facebook and our Morinville News app. They appear daily in Google News searches and are compiled into a daily email sent to our email list subscribers.

Online traffic at MorinvilleNews.com has increased significantly since we began in June of 2010.

In 2016, for example, MorinvilleNews.com had 173,963 visitors looked at 395,700 pages.

Last year, we had 220,508 visitors, an increase of 46,545 (26.75%). These visitors looked at 465,926 pages, an increase of 70,226 pages (17.75 per cent).

We’ve also published more news over that period – 1230 stories, up from the 1100 news stories we published in 2016, and up significantly from the 850 we published in 2014.

The bottom line – more people are getting their news online and we are delivering it as it happens.

Advertising Opportunities

Unlike a print paper where your ad can be stuck on a page that may or may not be looked at or in a spot that is overpowered by bigger ads, the Morinville News displays your ad content on all of our articles.

All of our ad spots use a random ad generation program to randomly display one of our ads. This distributes our ads fairly and equitably over the run of the ad campaign.

Below are the locations where we run ads and a breakdown of the affordable ad packages we have available for businesses.

Value Ad Package = $100 per month

The Value Ad Package is our most affordable option, giving you a business card ad – linked to your website or online content. The ad is positioned in the Article Top Placement position (see guide above).

In addition to your ad appearing in random rotation with other advertisers in this spot, we also add three business card advertisers weekly to our daily headline email to our email subscribers.

All-In Ad Package = $150 per month*

The All-In Ad Package is our best bang for the buck option, giving you all of the options in the Value Ad Package as well as the opportunity to run larger ads and campaigns as you require them.

In addition to your business card ad appearing in random rotation with other advertisers in the Top Article Spot, we will run larger advertisements in our Mid-Article ad spot (see guide above). These ads, linked to your online content, give a larger impact as readers scroll through reading our news stories.

Below is an example of a mid-article placement ad.

We are also able to run video ads in this spot, giving you a visual alternative to the conventional graphics advert.

Below are examples of video ads.

The two ads below are actually testimonial ads we shot for our video service with our client Smith Music and The Morinville Community Library.

The ad below is one we are able to quickly produce for your sales and events at an affordable rate.

* A nominal fee may be charged for graphic design on mid-article ads and for producing video commercials.
