Services & Fees
Advertising on The Open Press is very easy. We have implemented our own proprietary Graphic Ad system throughout the site. Ads are displayed at random on our website. The ad must be 160 wide x 160 high pixels in size. The ad will run based on weeks purchased. More weeks can be purchased at anytime.
We offer six packages with a two week minimum buy:
1). $80 - 2 weeks at $40/wk
2). $160 - 4 weeks at $40/wk
3). $288 - 8 weeks at $36/wk
4). $442 - 13 weeks at $34/wk
5). $780 - 26 weeks at $30/wk
6). $1352 - 52 weeks at $26/wk
To purchase ads without an account, please sign up for a free account. To purchase ads with a pre-existing account, go thru My Profile and click Submit Graphic Ad via the action module. All ads become active as soon as payment is made. With a current ad, you may extend the time your ad is displayed by clicking Extend Time for Graphic Ad.
PR FIRM SERVICE - $500 Annually
Press releases submitted by PR Firms do not require approval, however, we do verify each PR Firm application before we approve it. We perform PR Firm checks through independent sources to make sure the individual applying for a PR Firm account does indeed belong to a PR Firm and is authorized and qualified to submit press releases on the company's behalf. Furthermore, press releases submitted to us by PR Firms are automatically submitted to our Professional Press Releases (Pro Prs) section, which also has its own RSS Feed. PR Firm free releases will appear underneath the paid releases, but "above the fold" before the non PR Firm free releases. PR Firms can submit free press releases on behalf of their clients and can also add financial contributions to a press release to have it listed higher on the main front page and Pro Prs front page. The releases submitted by PR Firms can also contain special characters, images and html tags. Because PR Firms get several benefits, we do require an annual subscription fee of $500 for companies to obtain PR Firm status with The Open Press. A paypal link will be sent to you once you've been approved to submit payment.
