Advertise on McHenry Life and put your ads in front of a targeted, local, McHenry County audience.
We’ll continue to roll out new advertising opportunities here, so watch this space if you are interested in advertising and boosting your exposure.
We produce various guides throughout the year, some of which are updated annually (like the holiday-related guides), while others are updated periodically throughout the year (like the Farmers Market and Food Pantry Guides). These guides are online-based and accessible throughout the year and are promoted throughout the season across social media. Here are our current guides. Here’s a current sponsor example.
When you sponsor a guide, you will receive the top ad/promotional spot on the guide. There is a lot of flexibility available in your ad placement, including images, text, and link destination. Please note that any adjustments or changes after the initial creation may be subject to change fees.
In total, our Guides average over 1,700 views a week. Of course, not all Guides receive the same amount of traffic. From August 2022 through July 2023, our 4th of July guide achieved over 36,000 views, and our Trick-or-Treat guide achieved over 16,000 views. Other guides have achieved several thousand views and all guides listed below have achieved at least 500 views during this timeframe. Because of this variance, we have broken the guide sponsorship into tiers that reflect their popularity and have been priced accordingly.
