WCBS is proud to offer banner advertising on our website for blues clubs, musicians, bands, etc. Your message will target Blues afficionados in Chicago and Northern Illinois. We are working to develop reciprocal relationships with Blues Societies across the country. Eventually, traffic to our site will broaden.
We accept banner ads images in .jpg, .png, .gif formats and in a variety of pre-defined standard banner sizes (click me to see examples).
Banner ads are by time periods; quarterly (three month increments) and yearly. All ads must be prepaid. Ads purchased for publication for one year will be discounted. Banner ads can be purchased by anyone. These rates assume the banner is provided by the customer. We can arrange to have banner ads created for your business for a nominal cost.
