Advertising agreements made with the print Troubadour publication will be honored also on the online Troubadour. For now there's no charge for online ads even though it is a separate and more frequent publication as long as the print ad spaces are paid for. If your ad is for an event that will take place before a print publication is produced then the same fees will apply for online publications except the print period prices will be the standard even though the online publication is monthly . Plain English, for every 1 print publication there will be 3 or 4 online but you will be charged only for each print one. In the future the fee amounts may change to reflect the increase of coverage and therefor value and as an effort to cover increasing cost for the print publication.
Business card sized ads will run in a slide show on the main index 'front' page. The business card slide show runs in a new random sequence each time you open a new window to the site. Each image lasts a few seconds unless the mouse is moved over it freezing the image and when clicked on the user can view whatever source the client provides such as a file, website, or email address (some business card designs might best be retooled for online viewing).
Larger print ads will be displayed online at business card size as static images on the main index 'front' page and when clicked on the user can view whatever source the client provides. Although the larger print ads are only business card size online they have the advantage of being static images and so remain on the screen continuously.
All images and files are to be supplied by the client and emailed to Troubadour Editor Michael Baribeau at...
