Large Format Ad Units provide strong branding, visibility and creative opportunities on the Homepage and within each Content Section throughout WLWT.com. The three major ad units are:
Standard Ad Units are the basis for Run of Site (ROS) campaigns and are offered on a cost per thousand impression (CPM) basis. They can also be scheduled to run during specific days, time blocks, in content sections…even during specified weather conditions.
These ad units have universal appeal and considered standard by the Internet Ad Bureau (IAB).
Content Section Page
Section and Story Page Sponsorships create higher relevancy for the advertiser’s message, higher attention from visitors, and frequently higher response rates when accompanied by a strong “call to action.”
Sponsor ads appear in prominent locations above the fold on the main section page and can be placed in any editorial section of the site (i.e. News, Entertainment, Health, etc.)
All section sponsorships include:
1. Title Bar Logo (100 x 32) Front Page
2. Sponsorship Brick (320 x 120) Front Page
3. Display Ad (350 x 250) Story Page
A limited number of client category exclusive sponsorships are available on a share of voice basis (S.O.V.), further enhancing the return on investment.

Several low cost options provide even greater impact to Section Sponsorships:
* Expanded leaderboard ads can only run on Story Pages of each section.
Floating Rich Media Ads float over the web page immediately when it first loads, providing high impact visitor engagement. The ad then disappears after a maximum of 10 seconds.
Floaters truly deliver “outside the box” creative strategy since they’re not subject to the size and placement restrictions of standard banners. Their non-traditional size (up to 500 x 300 pixels) and movement across the page combine for much higher than average viewer recall and click through.

Floating Rich Media is offered on a cost per thousand (CPM) impressions or monthly sponsorship.
The Pushdown Ad unit is one of the highest impact online ad units, automatically “pushing down” the news content for 7 seconds. It then retracts to a 1000 x 40 leave behind ad which can be clicked by the visitor to review the ad again.
Because of its dominating impact on viewers, pushdown ads are scheduled on an individual day basis with a frequency cap of 1x per visitor per day.
Push Down ads are offered as a daily sponsorship with cost based on section page views.
Title-bar Drop Down Ads appear exclusively on the Home Page under “News Headlines” in the upper right hand corner. The ad drops down automatically to 320 x 130 pixels when a user first visits the page. After 8 seconds, a 100 x 34 sponsor Title-bar stays behind for the rest of the day.
Title-bar Drop Down ads are scheduled on an individual day basis with a frequency cap at 1x per visitor per day.
Title-bar Leave Behind:
Title-bar Drop Down ads are offered as a daily sponsorship with cost based on HOME page views.
