Measurable results for any budget

You can spend $100 – $600 to get your message in front of your customers for a full month. Whatever you choose, your ad will receive thousands of views from people in Lansing and surrounding areas. We’ll link the ad to your Facebook page, website, custom landing page, or email address so you can turn those page views into paying customers. Email us today, or scroll through the options below:

Special option—inside our Daily News email

Get delivered right to our subscribers’ inboxes. Note: These ads are most effective in shorter runs—5 to 7 days—so our pricing is per day rather than per month.

  • Ad size: 480 x 300px
  • Price: $25/day

Specialty designs

When you’re ready to add some interactivity into your online ad, ask about one of these unique formats:

  • Amazing Cube—great for realtors, restaurants, florists, or other organizations with strong visuals.
  • Scratch-Off—great for businesses that like to offer coupons. Give it a try!
  • Page Peel—subtle but fun. Scroll back up to see the sample on this page!

  • Instant Facebook—creates a window to the latest post on your organization’s Facebook page. If you are already regularly updating your Facebook page with photos, specials, events, this ad will extend your reach to people who are currently outside of your network.
