You’re too busy for advertising

But we don’t want you to disappear from view

The Lansing Journal specializes in advertising that gets results

We provide affordable digital ad options, and we report back to our advertisers how many views, clicks, and even hovers their ads achieve. Our easy-to-read results reports tell you what towns you’re reaching, what the most-viewed day of the week is, and what the most-clicked time of day has been.

That kind of information helps you know your customers and grow your business.

How about specialty ads?

We offer a number of digital advertising formats that increase visibility by including movement or interaction. The Slide-In coupon is a popular example, as is the Sneaker Footer seen on this page. Ask about pricing on the specialty ads sampled below.

Amazing Cube

An ad that displays 6 images and captions in a rotating cube. Great for capturing attention, especially for businesses with strong visuals (food, flowers, jewelry, even real estate). The cube offers a number of specialty options, including a separate link destination for each photo if needed.


An ad with a front image that can be “scratched” to reveal an underlying image or message. Great for before-and-after messaging or secret coupons.

YouTube Video with text

If your organization has already created a video advertisement, we can embed your YouTube™ link into an ad that fits the width and height of any of our zones.

Sticky note

We can jot down your ad message on a sticky note affixed to the top right of the screen and set it up to click over to your website or Facebook page for more information. Scroll back up to see the sample sticky note on this page.

Instant Facebook

This ad creates a window to the latest post on your organization’s Facebook page. If you are already regularly updating your Facebook page with photos, specials, events, this ad will extend your reach to people who are currently outside of your network.

Many more digital advertising specialty options are available. Email us to ask for ideas about your specific business type.
