› Display Advertising

Display advertising in The Crestone Eagle offers an excellent return on investment.  Since our readers are a highly concentrated demographic of individuals and businesses interested in local events and offerings, every ad is intentionally perused.  Whether you are offering catering services, massage, or construction, know that your ad will be seen.

****** Your display ad will also be visible within our digital edition, the Eagle Digisub ([intlink id=”51″ type=”page”]click here for a sample[/intlink])

Since The Crestone Eagle is a monthly publication, your ad is viewed the whole month through, and not discarded after a day or a week.  Plus, our website is updated weekly!
