WesternITE has two forms of advertisements available: Position Available Advertisements and Professional Directory Advertisements.
JOBS AVAILABLE ADVERTISEMENT
Jobs Available advertisements (ads) cost $1.50 per word and are posted to the WesternITE website’s “Jobs Available” page. There is a $100.00 minimum placement charge. Pricing is for 60 days on WesternITE jobs page. Ads must be transmitted only via e-mail (Word format only please). An image of your organization’s logo can be included with your advertisement for an additional $50 charge. If you would like to post a job opening please e-mail Lisa Martellaro-Palmer your Word file.

Invoices must be approved prior to placement of the ad and payment is due within 30 days.
Web postings typically take one to three business days to post.
Please include a contact person and we will email you an invoice for your approval. No advertising is posted or inserted until either the invoice is approved via e-mail or payment for the advertising is received.
Display ads are not currently available because the WesternITE newsletter is no longer printed and mailed. The online newsletter may be configured to accept display ads at a future time.
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENTS
Professional Services Directory advertisements are displayed on the website (see “Professional Directory” in the menu at left) and invoiced ahead on a calendar year basis. The rate is $200.00 for the first 6 lines (minimum charge), and $40/year for each additional line. For example, a 7-line listing would cost $240.00 per year. Current customers are invoiced in the fall of each calendar year for the coming year, with payment due within 30 days. New advertisers may send a check (pro-rated for the months in the calendar year) with their advertisement text (in Word format) and we will place their advertisement on the web site in 1 to 3 business days. Invoices must be paid by January 31 or the ad will be removed from the website. For more information contact Lisa Martellaro-Palmer.
Linking of Professional Services Directory (PSD) listings is also available on the at an additional cost of $120.00 per year. This includes display of your company’s logo and a hyperlink to the company’s website, as well as linking of any e-mail addresses in the ad text. PSD advertisers must provide logo in .jpg format and have a web address to benefit from these features. Billing for this feature is done concurrently with the annual Professional Service Directory invoicing.
