*The Cougar Chronicle reserves the right to reject, edit, or cancel any advertisement at
any time. If the business has paid in advance and The Cougar Chronicle must cancel the
ad, money will be refunded for the remaining ads or purchased time.
*The Cougar Chronicle cannot accept ads for products or groups considered
discriminatory, illegal for high school students, or in violation of other standard
journalistic principles (libel, obscenity, invasion of privacy, or disruption).
*Publication of an ad is in no way an indication of endorsement by staff, adviser,
administration, or WCS.
*Ad publication lies under the discretion/direction of staff, adviser, and CHS/WCS
administration.
What’s great about TopCat advertising?
The TOPCAT options allow you to saturate a paper (or all papers—depending on
whether you want to do one, multiples, or the entire year), either online or print (or
both), for heavily discounted rates.
*The print ads work well because, in addition to your advertisement, you get a full color
feature story (including pictures and a coupon if you like) and a special thank you!
*The online ads are great because you get a front page slider (This is just a sample):
And you get eight small section boxes that look like this (also just a sample):
But the best part is that each of the captions (Ex: “Go beyond a single photo with
slideshows”) links to another page on which you can put anything you want (any
dimensions, any layout)—tons of copy, graphics, coupons, flyers, AND hyperlinks to your
business website, which you can’t do (for legal reasons) on the regular school website!
Here’s a sample of the section sidebar:
Again, below the photo or logo, there is a headline and text with a link that says “Read
more.” Once again, your ad here goes to another page where you can, again, put
anything you want.
If you want, you have the option of using totally different copy in each of the section
boxes/sliders, so it’s like you’re getting up to eight different ads in addition to the
slider!
Finally, regardless of format, we put your name on our TOPCAT sponsors list, which
appears all year long with the masthead on page two of the print version and its own
tab of the online version. It never goes away, even if you buy only one TOPCAT ad. It’s a
very reasonable way to try it out and get lots of advertising for your money!
