Alameda is within your reach.
One of the biggest advantages of digital advertising is reach. With print advertising, you pay for an ad without any real idea how many people will actually see it. Another drawback is that the only people who might see your print ad are those who subscribe to or seek out that publication one day per week—a small number that keeps dwindling.
Unlike print ads, you can be confident that your online ads will be shown to thousands of visitors to AlamedaPost.com every week—people who are either from Alameda or interested in our city and ready to act and support local business. Our readers will also see your ad when they click on links that their friends share or are referred by social media, they don’t have to subscribe.
Our website is viewed by thousands of people every week, tens of thousands every month, and our reach continues to grow. Online ads are integrated right into our site content, providing readers with useful and actionable information on every page— the opposite of print media, where ads are placed off in the margins and easily ignored. Your ad isn’t stuck on one piece of paper that might only be seen just once before being recycled—it’s shown all around our website and may appear on any page, garnering many more opportunities to share your messaging.
Each time an ad is displayed that a reader can see, that is what’s called an impression. In the month of May, 2023, we displayed over 400K ad impressions. We know when our ads are seen, and even more importantly, we can tell when someone takes action! No guesswork or worrying that your ad has not been seen. We can adjust creative during campaigns, too.
Our monthly packages can be used to pace the display of your ad throughout the month, or you may choose to blast out all your impressions within a few days. Contact us to ask about reduced pricing for nonprofits, content targeting, social media promotions, exclusive placements, and other custom options. We also offer advertising space in our weekly newsletter and podcast.
When you advertise with Alameda Post, your banner ad will be placed into site-wide rotation for the Post’s visitors that same day. Our ad server keeps track of how many times each day your ad is shown, and we provide custom reporting that allows advertisers to see how many readers have seen or clicked on a particular banner ad.
Getting started is easy! We accept payment by check or credit card. We can create your banner ad for you—just provide your logo, campaign details, and the desired link. Or if you prefer, you may submit your own banner in JPG format sized at 1456 x 180, double the standard IAB leaderboard size. Please ensure the text is large, clear, and legible, as this ad is shown on mobile devices 70% of the time. For your free business directory listing, please provide your logo, photos (store front, display, etc.), and information about any upcoming or ongoing events or offers, which may be updated at any time.
