WesternITE is published for 4,000 transportation engineering and planning professionals in the 13 western states encompassing the Western District of the Institute of Transportation Engineers. The WesternITE web site is viewed by up to 5,300 unique visitors each month, with up to 160,000 hits per month.
If you would like to leverage westernite.org web traffic for your business, WesternITE has two forms of advertisements available: Jobs Available advertisements and Professional Services Directory advertisements.
JOBS AVAILABLE ADVERTISEMENT
Jobs Available advertisements are $1.50 per word and are posted to the WesternITE website’s “Jobs Available” page, the Jobs Discussion board on LinkedIn, and printed in the WesternITE Quarterly Newsletter. There is a $100.00 minimum placement charge. Ads will be displayed for 60 days on WesternITE jobs page, and 14 days on LinkedIn. Ads must be transmitted via e-mail only, within the email text or in Word format. 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 Robert Sweeting. If you would like your logo posted, please include it as a separate attachment in .jpg format.
Payment by credit card is preferred, and can be made by contacting Robert Sweeting. Invoices must be approved prior to placement of the ad and payment is due within 30 days. Please include a contact person, and an invoice will be emailed for your approval. No advertising is posted until either the invoice is approved via e-mail or payment for the advertising is received.
Web postings typically take one to three business days to post.
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENTS
Professional Services Directory advertisements are displayed on the website (see “Professional Services Directory” in the menu, top left) and invoiced on a yearly 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 Robert Sweeting.
Linking of Professional Services Directory (PSD) listings to your company website is also available, at an additional cost of $120.00 per year. This includes display of your company’s logo, a hyperlink to the company’s website, and linking of any e-mail addresses in the ad text. PSD advertisers must provide logo in .jpg format, and a web address. Billing for this feature is done concurrently with the annual Professional Service Directory invoicing.
AVAILABILITY AND MODIFICATIONS
Both Job ads and PSD ads can be placed at any time. Modifications to Profession Services Directory and Jobs Available listings can be made at the discretion of the Advertising Manager and the Website Manager. If the change makes the ad longer, the difference in price will be pro-rated for the time remaining for the ad, and is due in 30 days. Please allow 1 to 3 business days for the ad change to take effect on the website.
