I have never heard of BiG Pages America...Really?...
Have you heard of drudgereport.com  Sometimes I meet people who say I have never heard about BiG Pages America and I reply with this question.  "Have you ever heard of d drudgereport.com?  Almost 10 out of 10 people will answer by saying no.  Then, I share with them that drudgereport.com is the largest website in the world with over 10 million visits per month.  Yet, you have not heard of it.  BiG Pages America concentrates on reaching people in Metro Louisville and the 1.6 million people who live in the 11 county  economic development area that surrounds Louisville on both sides of the Ohio river.  BiG Pages America promotes every community, that wants our promotion, in our magazine 
Advertising and media is changing.  In the old days of TV everyone on your block might be watching Bonaza.  Co-workers discussed the Sunday night Bonanza epidsodes at work on Monday mornings.  Everyone new about Bonanza.   In that era people assumed that everyone watched the same TV programs they watched.  Everyone new about Bonanaza.  The choices for TV programs were smaller then.  Now, viewers have unlimited choices and most view programs that share their interest or entertain them. Today many people can not tell you what shows are playing on TV.  Why?  Because many are watching content and programs on their phones, computers, laptops and ipads.  You may live on a street with 20 houses.  But, the people in each of these house are watching or viewing different content and programs on their electronic devices.  Two or three houses may be viewing content on BiG Pages while the rest of the families on the street have never heard about BiG Pages.  Since neighbors do not talk with each other anymore.  Fewer and fewer people are talking about the TV shows they watched last night with the co-workers on Monday morning.  The amount of people who visit BiG Pages.Org daily more than justifies our sponoring and advertising fees.  All they have to do to shop your store is "click" text, phone, email or visit your store. 
One last thing.  People are attracted to personalities and praticular personality driven websites.  Thousands of people visit BiG Pages . Org to find out what crazy story John Rodgers has written or what people are saying about him.  His ideas and stories drive people to BiG Pages in big numbers.

Everything I am about to tell you is true.  Our competitors are unaware of our advertising skills and talents and especially of the power of our "Alive Advertising".  It requires a committed team of graphic designers, copy writers and photographic professionals and IT people to make "Alive Advertising" work.  I am going to share with you how our "Alive Advertising" works at the risk of letting our competitors know some of our secrets.

We always know who is visiting our pages (ip addresses)in our magazine and we are always changing our pages hourly to grab the attention of our viewers and readers.  Our magazine almost lives and breathes.  Our IT people are like cattle ranchers.  They keep herding viewers in the direction of an advertisement we want them to see.  For example, we might publish a huge banner Ad on the front page of the magazine for all viewers to see.  When the viewer clicks the Town Square section they see the same banner Ad they first saw on the home page as a display Ad.  When the viewer clicks My Business, they will see a photo of the business owner, along with a photo of the business that they first saw on the home page.  As the viewer moves from page to page through the magazine, they will see the same business advertised in different formats on the many different pages viewed.  When the viewer gets to the Deals of The Day page, they see the same Ad for the same original business they first viewed on the home page.  The Deals of The Day page sends the viewer to the Coupon Page where the viewer will have the opportunity to download a coupon of the business they first viewed on the home page.  Our viewers read the Hikes Point News.com magazine for several minutes because of our Story Section.  We have a strong following of people who visit the magazine several times a day to read different stories by John Rodgers.  Ads are displayed with each story.  The stories that are being read at any given time infer if our reading audience has a higher number of males or females and also can help indicate the culture, and economic background of our viewers.

If you are an advertisier and your numbers are dragging we will publish a new story that generates interest from people (ip address history) who would also be interested in your kind of business.  This is called Adverherding.  Our IT folks herd readers to your Ads by placing your Ads by a new story we know a certain type of customer (ip address) enjoys.  Think of your advertising as being on a radio volume dial.  We can turn up the volume on your Ad if we think you are not being heard or seen enough.  We write human interest stories and stock these in our story vault to be used when our advertisers need to have the volume turned up on their advertising.  This is "Alive "Advertising". 

Very few if any media have the skills, experience or the financial commitment to do this.  Hikes Point News.com is always being changed to herd more viewers and readers to your Ads.  That's what makes our advertising Alive!.

Alive Advertising does not cost extra.  It is included in our one year advertising package you can see by clicking on the Buzz graphic below.  Lets us work with you and together we can help your business prosper and grow more.







Below are 16 additional different components which provide different avenues for advertising your business.  All are available to you depending on the Advertisng Program you choose.  We can bundle all of these together in your advertising campaing or use only those you feel would be most helpful.  The more components you use and the more pages used to disiplay your advertising, affects your advertising response.  Set down with us and let us share with you how these different components to our advertisiing can give you the results you desire.
