Self-serve Advertising

MyChesCo is part of the Google Display Network. So, with very few exceptions, in order to advertise with us, your business must have a Google Ads account. We have found this provides the greatest benefit to our advertisers.

  • Measurable Results – An old marketing maxim states, “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half!” Since advertising on MyChesCo funnels through Google Ads, every single aspect of your marketing campaign is measurable, right down to the number of clicks, number of impressions, click-through rate (CTR), number of conversions, conversion rate, cost per click (CPC), cost per acquisition (CPA), etc. It is easy to measure your return on investment (ROI).
  • Cost-Effective – A prime benefit to advertising on MyChesCo is it is extremely cost-effective. You only pay when someone clicks on your ad and you determine exactly how much you want to spend. You can set your budget from as little as $10 per day up to $5000 per day. More importantly, you can optimize your campaigns by gradually lowering your cost-per-click, which will increase traffic without increasing your costs!
  • Locally Targeted – MyChesCo was created for the people of Chester County, by people from Chester County. However, while the largest percent of MyChesCo’s traffic is within Pennsylvania, and most of that traffic is from Chester County, location targeting will ensure your ads are not wasted on visitors who will never visit your showroom or become your customer. MyChesCo is part of the Google Display Network. So, you have the ability to ensure your ads are shown only to those within your specific geographical area.
  • Retargeting – When a MyChesCo user clicks on your ad, you can continue to show them your ads on other websites. Retargeting involves showing paid ads to users based on their past web activity on your site. It empowers advertisers to follow users and show ads across Google’s large network of partner sites on the Google Display Network.
  • No Long-term Commitments – Many other media websites in Chester County try to force your company into a contract. Your ad will show on their site for a set period of time, and you pay regardless of how often it is seen, how often visitors click to your website, or how effective it is. Using Google Ads to advertise on MyChesCo gives you peace of mind, and allows you to pause or cancel your campaign at any time.

Advertorials

An advertorial, as the name suggests, is an advertisement. Sometimes called “sponsored content” or a “paid article” they are extended text advertisements.

How to Get Started

Align your message with the latest MyChesCo content with an Advertorial unit. It’s a new way for advertisers to integrate and showcase their brand creative in a responsive native format.

Advertorial Cost: $175.00

To have an Advertorial page posted:

  1. Your headline should be no more than 10 words long.
  2. Subtitles should be no more than 20 words long.
  3. Advertorial length can be between 300 and 2000 words.
  4. One external link is permitted.
  5. Featured image must be 1200×653 JPG or PNG and free of text, logo or branding.

Advertorials are clearly identified as paid advertising.

Traffic can be unpredictable, especially for previously unpublished sponsored content. There is no way for MyChesCo to provide traffic estimates.

It should not be assumed that an advertiser will receive “page exclusivity”. “Exclusivity” is an add-on feature.
