GHScanner APP Advertising.

In January 2019 Grays Harbor Scanner launched its new app called GHScanner.  The App provides access to its online scanner feeds as well as a subscriber option to get instant alert notifications on major posts by GHS.  

When any users log in, they will get your ad displayed prominently on the screen on their device.  This is a great advertising avenue for current advertisers and new ones.  

As of August 1st advertising packages "Website ads 3 months or more" Facebook shouts "4 or more" will be included in the app ads. 

Website Advertising

Website advertising reaches everyone that comes to our website.  We have scripts that are in place that will not allow site visitors to visit our website with ad blockers.  You can use an already designed up image, or we can help design one for you (additional cost may be charged if we design one for you).  The image must be 250 x 300.  Each website advertising account will come with 1 Facebook shout per month. Advertisements are included in every story and our front page in a random rotation regenerated on every click and refresh. Ads in this category reach about 10,000 people each month. Website advertising is billed in 3 month or annual billing preferred. As of August 1st 2019 website ad packages will include GHScanner App advertising.

Reach Disclaimer

Advertising reach average is based on GHS advertising recommendations and design and experience.  Reach potential could be less than 5,000 if not properly tailored for Facebook and website reach factors.  Such as size, color, content.  If advertising clients bring in their own image and choose not to go with recommendations by experienced staff and the reach is lower than expected we cannot boost or do another posting to help reach or meet the average reach of 5,000 or more.
