Ad Types & Benefits

We offer two types of ads in Transportation Talk:

  • Display advertising: stand-alone ad embedded in a feature, article, or on the inside cover, ensuring the most visibility. These can be purchased by issue or at a discounted 4x rate for the year.
  • Directory advertising: ad in the Professional Services Directory listing. These are only available at a 4x rate covering all four issues released in a year.

Both ads are available in a variety of sizes and include the following value-added visibility for your company:

  • All ads are directly linked to a URL of your choice (default to your corporate website)
  • Your company is recognized in the distribution email sent to our mailing list (typically viewed by 900+ recipients) with a direct link to your corporate website
  • Your company is acknowledged and tagged in social media posts that garner upwards of 1000 impressions within a week of posting. Display advertisers have your logo featured while directory advertisers have your company name listed. See example below.
