The Benefits Of Online Advertisements and Promotions
Scoop Sponsorship Advertising and Promotion Plans increase awareness of you logo and/or brand, increase your own website traffic to your website and generate sales.
Don't you wonder whether your current advertising/promotions package is giving you valued exposure for your money?
Scoop advertising and business exposure plans keep you informed This plan offers you a selection of ways your business can be noticed on the internet.
Unlike the aged forms of advertising where you pay thousands for a display advertisement in a local newspaper, only to have it tossed out after a day, or used to wrap kitchen scraps into, your Scoop advertising and business exposure plans keep a live, realtime presence for every Scoop visitor to view.
This method of advertising and branding can save you thousands of dollars a month.
You also will have access to a progressive and technology savvy audience which other forms of media simply do not deliver to.
By managing a presence at Scoop you will be seen by a broad range of people, from decision makers, news makers, managers, directors, students, travellers, tourists, community conscious people, mothers, husbands, sports minded people... Your Scoop audience is as dynamic as Scoop's fantastic news service.
Remember, other traditional advertising mediums incur high costs, long deadline times and you can only guess at the number of people who take any notice. These problems simply do not exist when promoting on the Scoop news agency site.
Let Scoop manage your business' Exposure Plan:
