Our first post, a photo of the new ShopRite store shortly before its grand opening at the Shoppes at Farmington Valley, went up on May 22. This represents post No. 256, a little more than six months later.
Until now, dotCANTON.com has not actively pursued any advertising. We have been focusing, and will continue to focus, on creating a product that our growing number of readers will enjoy and will find informative. We have lots of ideas on how we can improve the site in the future.
To get to the future, we will need the support of advertisers now. We believe our readership foundation is firm and that it will continue to get stronger, so we have created four highly affordable ways for businesses of all sizes and everyone else to get the word out.
We have established a Classified Ads page that can be accessed by clicking the button at the top of this page, right above the dotCANTON.com in large letters. Everything you need to know about our classified ads can be found on the Classified Ads page.
In addition, we have opened up the right-hand column on every page to display advertising, ads we are calling “Side Orders.” Ads here will link with a click directly to a business’ website. Information you are used to seeing in the right-hand column, including “Posts By Date” and “Recent Posts,” can now be found in the left-hand column.
More very attractive advertising space is available between every post on the website — we’re calling these ads ‘Tweeners. You can see that green type directly below this post. These ads are all verbal and come with a link to a business’ website.
Another option, at a higher cost, is the wide space we normally use for photos that just scream Canton! We call this ad “The Topper.”
Information on all of these advertising options can be obtained by calling 860-693-8253. Please remember, dotCANTON.com is a small, privately run website, so it’s possible you will get a recording and have to leave a message. Thank you for your patience. We will return your call as soon as possible. We very much appreciate your interest and your support.
