Placed in the margins of Raleigh Happening.com and its sub-sites, these graphic ads are akin to a print magazine ad. Choose from the leaderboard, header, background takeover, page folds, or right margin (300 x 250, or 125 x 125).
Beyond the banner ad. RH provides engaging & informative CONTENT-driven advertising. The advantages of content-driven marketing are many. Sponsored content is not only searchable, but improves your company’s search engine optimization (helps your website show up in search engine more often and closer to the top), provides long-lasting results, and is highly trackable. Customized sponsored content provides readers with an enjoyable way to learn about who you are and what you do. Further, content allows us to position an advertiser in a targeted fashion- be viewed as a knowledgeable expert in your field, show your fun side, highlight your charitable contributions. The possibilities are endless.
Seasonal guides are placed on Raleigh Happenings to be a resource to locals for an extended period of time. While each guide varies slightly in format, they always highlight the best events of each season and are consistently viewed for long periods of time. In the past, Happening Media websites have published seasonal and holiday guides.
