Sponsorship of the Nebraska Community Websites Project www.NCWP.org represents a unique opportunity to deliver your business or organizations message directly to an estimated 25,000 residents of Cass County Nebraska and associate your name with this exciting new Community News/Information Project.
Revenues from your sponsorship pay for the building and promotion of this County wide communications project, and supports the individuals in each community that volunteer as Community Editors.
The key to this Project is the Community Editors. These Editors have been selected for their interest in, and commitment to their Community. Their task is basically keeping news content fresh, entertaining and relevant to the residents of the Community they represent. This flow of unique fresh local content insures regular visitors and increases the visibility of your important message.
Sponsorship is Simple and Affordable
Sponsorship costs just $69/month. There is a one time charge of $29 to create a minimum of one clickable color banner that displays your message. Each banner says "click here" and allows an interested visitor to be transported directly to your website for additional information or to make a purchase. Advertising Rates
Additional message banners can be purchased at the rate of $29/banner and can be added to the rotation for increase frequency of display.
All banners display at all 11 of the Community Websites, in 3 specific areas:
1) Home Page
2) What's New (Editors Most Recent News)
3) Business Section
In that way a visitor to, (for example), the Union Nebraska Community website that visits all 4 of these popular pages would then have 4 chances to see your banner, read your message and click through to your website to learn more.
Question: What if I have a Business in Cedar Creek, can I advertise in Springfield?
Answer: Your sponsorship banner will be seen in all 11 Communities, and any qualified Business or Organization is welcome.
Question: But, I do not have a Website?
Answer: For those that do not currently have a website that can be used as a click-through destination for their banner, or for those that would need special changes to their website to best accommodate these Cass County visitors we can build a Website Lite with a wonderful domain name that will be perfectly suited to your needs.
Question: What is a "qualified business"
Answer: Our most valued resource is the relationships that we have with the Cities and Villages that they represent. In many cases we have a City Charter in force that very specifically provides the Mayor, City Clerk or Village Board the right to disapprove of any content displayed on the Official Community website. We reserve the right to refuse any sponsorship or banner that does not, in our opinion, fit with the culture, values or interests of the Community we serve.
Question: I am only really interested in Plattsmouth, can I save some money if I just advertise there?
Answer: No. We have made sponsorship as inexpensive as possible, and it is County-wide program.
Question: I noticed that the Beaver Lake, Nebraska website is not completed! Why should I pay for a banner?
Answer: Your Sponsorship is for the project in it's entirety. It is going to increase in popularity over the next weeks and months, but this requires people time and resources. We have priced sponsorship so that you get a very good value, even as the network grows.
Question: Are there rules about what my Message Banner can say?
Answer: As we explained, we maintain very high standards as to information displayed on any Official Community Website. Any message that is inappropriately aggressive, or can not be verified as to it's truthfulness, authority and/or validity will not be displayed out of respect for the Communities that we represent.
Question: Why do you display Message Banners in 3 different places, at each of the 11 Community sites?
Answer: We have studied visitor traffic patterns for more than 12 years at some of our first Community Websites, and it is very dependable. A banner displaying in any of these sections is most likely to be read, and clicked. We have tried to optimize the chances for your message to be seen and clicked. We want for your Sponsorship to be rewarding, and we want for you to be a regular sponsor.
We are supported entirely by sponsors like yourselves.
