<== About Springs Color ==>
Springs Color is a member of the Community Color family of sites offering a directory and community calendar for El Paso County, Colorado.
The goal of project is to promote local web development and community awareness for select communities in the Mountain West.
The site provide free listings to all local businesses, community events and blogs that I can find.
I funded the initial release of the site through affiliate ads. My idea was to let large national sites pay for free listing for small local sites.
Unfortunately, many of the affiliate networks have become extremely intrusive in the way that they deliver ads; So, I decided to give local firms an opportunity to displace the national ads.
I charge a listing fee of $25.00 and will display the ads for 100,000 page views. That is a low 25¢ CPM. This is actually less than I make with the national ads.
The ad is a 728x90 placement that goes in the upper fold of the page. It can either be an image banner or two lines of text (see the ad above). I invite people from the area to Order Ads. If I approve the ad; I will send you an email showing the ad placement.
