Advertise with us.

We have three advertising programs for Methuen businesses that will never break the bank but will provide better daily coverage than any local print media.  See our plans below. All plan pricing is based on an annual commitment.


$1 a Day

We will design, or you may provide a banner that will be placed on side areas of this website. Your banner rotates randomly with other advertisers and will be displayed on pages throughout our website.  Your banner ad is also included in the random advertising in an event listing.  to see this in action, click on any event and you will see a banner appearing at the bottom of each event.

Unlike newspaper ads where your advertisement is located on just one page, your ad here can be viewed on many pages and more frequently on a daily basis not just one expensive ad tucked away someplace in a paper ad.  Your banner is also clickable where a visitor can click it and be directed to your current website providing the consumer more opportunity to learn about the products/services your company offers.  You can't do that with paper advertising. 


$1.50 a Day

Same benefits as the $1 a Day plan plus you receive (2) two additional benefits:

1). PROMOTIONS: You will have the opportunity to create promotions for your company with our one of a kind online coupon generator.  Whether you call them coupons, promotions or just deals our Coupon Generator is a benefit to your company  in so many ways.  To learn more about our coupon generator visit our other website or call us at 978-689-4285. Click to see more info.

The coupons you create will be displayed on discoverMethuen.com in our coupons section.  All coupons are shareable with the social media giving your coupons more exposure.  we have a small script that you can have placed on your current website to display them there as well. 

2).  CALENDAR:  You will also have the opportunity to post events on DiscoverMethuen.com.  If your business offers events of public interest this features helps promote them to our audience.  We can even provide you with a small script so the events you create can be displayed on your website.

 

My paper advertising is just too expensive. How competitive is your advertising plan?

There's no competition, the web provides better daily exposure especially here on DiscoverMethuen.com than conventional one-day paper ads.  Costs for paper advertising can sore into the hundreds of dollars for just a one-day ad and not to mention that people are turning away from paper media sources and are turning to the internet for their information.  With paper advertising your add gets tossed in one little corner of dozens of pages.  With DiscoverMethuen.com your ad randomly floats throughout our website providing better exposure for your company.  Best of all, it's not a one-day ad.  Your ad, for as little as $1 a day stays on our website everyday for a whole year.  Now that's a value.

Who are we you might ask?

Well let me introduce myself.  My Name is Sid Harris, a third generation Methuenite who enjoys all that Methuen has to offer.  I'm a web developer and graphic designer and own and operate Valcom Web Services here in Methuen, and have been doing so since 1997.  I have this philosophy about doing business with Methuen businesses and help promote Methuen businesses anytime I can.  I've designed and maintain this website to attract visitors to experience the many events held here in Methuen and at the same time want to help introduce and remind those who live in and visit our community that Methuen businesses offer the best in product and services anywhere. We do that by creating a banner ad that when clicked directs our visitors, your potential customers... to your current website to explore the services your company offers.

I see you have coupons on your website. How can I get involved in getting my company's coupons on your website?

We've designed a unique coupon generator website that allows businesses to create and manage coupons.  It's easy and it's only an additional $10 per month with your annual advertising plan.  The biggest advantage is that you won't need to pay your web-person to add coupons on your website because we have a widget that allows you to display your company's coupons on your existing website as well.  Create an expiration date for each coupon and your coupon stop showing, no more seeing coupons that have expired.  Add new coupons or update your existing ones anytime you want. We'll place your coupons/promotions on our coupon page for all to see.  We even share them on our network of Facebook pages.

So what's the big attraction?

Of course it's your business we want people to see but, it's our community calendar that's fast becoming the talk of the city.  One of the biggest complaints by residents, other than taxes... is "What's Happening in Methuen?"  Nowhere can you find upcoming events well in advance.  Methuen always has something going on and trying to find out what that is... is difficult.  Usually most people will find out after the event has past.  

We've created relationships with many organizations in the area as well as businesses offering entertainment, government public meetings and youth organizations holding events and fundraisers.  We've committed ourself to collect all Methuen events and put them in one place so those who live in and visit Methuen can easily plan to attend any event Methuen offers.

With the majority of internet users now utilizing their cell phones to access the internet we encourage people to utilize an easy way to add an icon on their cell phone's homepage that makes it easier to stay connected with us.  Click here to learn how easy it is to add an icon for DiscoverMethuen.com on your cell phones.

My business offers entertainment. How can I participate to get my entertainment schedule on your website?

We offer plans that will help promote businesses who offer entertainment.  Your entertainment calendar on your website is a great feature, if you have one... however, not everyone is going to find your website or remember what it is.  We will place all your public events in our calendar for a minimal monthly fee.  You just send us your schedule and we'll fancy it up for you.  Also,, we'll even give you a small script that you add to your website that will display your events as they do on DiscoverMethuen.com.  Call us at 978-689-4285 to discuss or setup an appointment by clicking here and we'll explain how you can participate with DiscoverMethuen.com.
