Buy Ad Space here.

Advertisements on TheRockfordNetwork.com are purchased on a pixel-by-pixel basis.  Every small cube on the homepage is equivalent to 100 pixels, with the price of each cube starting at $20. A minimum purchase of 8 cubes (800 pixels) is required, which is $160.  Some advertisements may require a $50 setup/design fee.  As larger quantities of pixels are purchased, the price per pixel is incrementally decreased.  By purchasing larger Advertisement spaces, you will receive not only a volume discount, but also the ability to display higher quality graphics, distinguishing your Ad from others on the page.  You have complete control as to where your Ad will be positioned on the grid so long as the space has not previously been reserved.

When purchasing Ad Space (measured in pixels), the amount of time your ad will stay online will vary depending upon the purchase plan you have chosen.  Regardless of the size of the advertisement, the length of the membership will be either 1 or 2 years, dependent upon the purchase plan option chosen.  Advertisements can be purchased in either 1 or 2 year increments with payment options including 3-Month Payment Plans, Monthly Subscription Based Payment Plans, or Paid in Full.  For detailed pricing information regarding our purchasing options, please send us an email at info@therockfordnetwork.com.

When you purchase Ad Space from us, not only do you get an ad on TheRockfordNetwork.com, but you will also receive;

  • Virtual Dynamic Branding™(VDB) Page
  • Acts as a Virtual Homepage for Your Business with an up to 2000 Character Business Description, as well as Contact Information, Multiple Logo Display, Hours of Operation, Up to three Business Related Photos, One Downloadable .PDF File, and Email Contact Information
  • Up to 200 characters on a Rollover Description
  • The pop-up when the mouse runs over your pixels to convince visitors to click on your link
  • A Listing in our Searchable Member Directory
  • Allows visitors to TheRockfordNetwork.com the ability to search by business name or keyword matching potential customers to businesses right here in the community.
  • Over 5000 Keywords to Describe Your Business
  • Listing of all of the products and services that your business offers in order to get maximum search results. As your business changes and new products come to market, the keyword search is adaptable and we will work with you to provide updates as frequently as possible.

These features will provide benefits that generate business that is nearly unreachable by other forms of mass media. A locally ran ad on television or in a circular cannot guarantee that customers will identify you as carrying the products, or providing the services that they are looking for. With an ad on The Rockford Network, your business is guaranteed to be directly matched with not only local consumers, but also with consumers who are specifically searching for a product or service that your business offers. We are confident that you, as business owners and consumers, will find value in our advertising services.

We encourage you to use TheRockfordNetwork.com to find the products and services you need in your own community. With your support of TheRockfordNetwork.com, you are also helping in a campaign to educate local residents about the importance of supporting local merchants. The benefits of the campaign can have a tremendous effect on the community in terms of creating more jobs, raising local wages, increasing local business profits, raising property values, and of course improving the quality of life for everyone in the community.  We here at TheRockfordNetwork.com thank you for your support and we look forward to helping “bring local businesses closer to home…”

Businesses Eligible for Use of TheRockfordNetwork.com Include:

  • All Businesses Located Within 8 Miles of the Rockford City Limits

  • Business Owners Live in Rockford
  • Owners Live in Rockford, Operate Business outside of Rockford
  • Majority of Employees Live within Rockford
  • Business in Located Outside of Rockford, but Majority of Employees are From Rockford
  • Majority of Business Operations are in Rockford

  • Majority of Money is Kept Within the Greater Rockford Area
  • Main Suppliers/Distributors are Located Within the Rockford Area
  • Locally Owned Franchises

Some people may ask why we would allow some businesses outside of the Rockford Area to advertise on TheRockfordNetwork.com.  The answer is simple.  All of the above exceptions are key contributors to the economic welfare of the Rockford community even if their operations are based outside of the community.

While our focus is to help the local merchants compete in the new global economy, our goal is to reinvigorate the local economy and create a cycle of wealth that remains within Rockford.  If a business from another community does not meet one of the above criteria, it will not be able to advertise on TheRockfordNetwork.com.

We are not trying to exclude these businesses from advertising to the Rockford area residents; however, we are trying to keep as much available capital within our community.  If we were to allow any business to advertise on TheRockfordNetwork.com, we would be essentially encouraging money to leave our community, which is the opposite outcome of our intended goal.

***Here at TheRockfordNetwork.com our overall goal is to allow small businesses to use the Internet as a tool in turn helping to keep money within the community.
