Have you used your FREE newsletter ad?
Promote your business or event in our weekly email newsletter.
One free ad per quarter.
Today all free advertising credits for Chamber members have been reset. Members are now eligible for their FREE second quarter (Q2) ad.

Once per quarter Chamber members receive free advertising in our weekly email newsletter. This means there are four opportunities per year to reach more than 1,600 readers with information about your business, sale, special event and more.

Additional advertising costs $20 per week, per ad, and repetition is the best way to keep your business or sale top of mind. Online and email advertising benefits all types of businesses, and studies show that online ads can directly impact offline sales by building the brand and engaging non-recent customers.

How do I advertise?
  • Choose your size. There are two ad sizes - small and large - which are outlined below.
  • Contact director@basaltchamber.org to advertise, and to submit your materials.
  • The weekly newsletter comes out every Thursday. The final day to submit an ad is Monday end of day (i.e. three days) before you want to advertise.
  • One free ad per quarter, per business. Additional ads are $20 per week.

In addition to our weekly newslett er, we have opportunities for Members-only personalized email newsletter, where you can showcase your business, sale or other item to our mailing list of 1,600 individuals for $100.
What could you advertise between now and June 30?
Plan ahead and think about what you would like to advertise in 2019. Do you have any big events coming up? We happily take advance reservations, and can send you a friendly reminder as a special date gets closer.

English In Action event
What is needed to advertise:
  • Brief description about what you are promoting (business, event, sale)
  • Important dates, times, contact information, and/or address.
  • Image, Logo or PDF. A larger file is preferred as it can always be scaled down.
  • A link or other call to action like "Buy tickets today!"

Contact director@basaltchamber.org to advertise, and to submit your materials. The weekly newsletter comes out every Thursday. The final day to submit an ad is Monday end of day (i.e. three days) before you want to advertise.

In this instance, an image was provided and the ad was built by the Chamber, using the necessary information to promote the event.
Sample ad - large
What is needed to advertise:
  • Image or PDF: The maximum image size is 1500 x 1050 pixels. Landscape (horizontal) images are the only type allowed, as portrait (vertical) images require too much scrolling within the email.
  • Link: Readers will click the image and can be sent to a website, or a new email message can be generated via a pop-up window.

Vector logo example
The Basalt Chamber's vector based logo. Note the outlines - that is what allows us to scale it up and put it on a billboard without it looking odd.

Friends, Basaltines, Chamber Members - send me your logos!
It is incredibly helpful for us to have a copy of the latest version of every members logo. The most useful are logos that are vector based (files ending in .ai or .eps). The benefit of a vector logo is that it can be scaled up or down and still maintain its integrity. Logos that are rasterized (files ending in .jpg or .png) are pixel based, and get blurry when made larger than its original size.

Please  email us your vector based logo  so we have it on file to help promote your business. If you have any questions, feel free to call us:
(970) 927-4031.
