In Color Digital Communities (ICDC) builds web sites for communties which do not otherwise have budgets to fund their own web presence. Funding for these web sites is provided by ICDC and you, the digital community.
When you sponsor one of our websites, you make a difference for your business and for the community. The cost is low and the value, high. In fact, our sponsorship opportunities are so popular, we expect to be sold out each and every year. Our sponsors benefit from our unique online banner purchase and posting system which cuts down on our costs and thereby allows the sponsor to reap the benefits of online advertising targeted directly at their customers.
ICDC (like ACDC in that we rock, but not like them in pretty much every other way)
In Color Digital Communities (ICDC) is a homegrown organization located right here in Santa Barbara, here on California's beautiful Central Coast. Created by two longtime UCSB grads, Art Fisher and Tom Widroe, ICDC was born out of a desire to help both our alma mater and our community in general by sharing our collective expertise in the world of online communications, specifically by building enterprise-level websites for those businesses, schools and non-profits which could not afford to do so otherwise.
ICDC websites are filled to the brim with great content that keeps visitors coming back again and again while they enjoy easy access to valuable information, world-class photography and editorials and opinion from both professional writers and members of our online communities. That's how we manage a half million of page views annually from visitors all over Santa Barbara, across the USA and throughout the world.
Revenue acquired through sponsorship opportunities helps to cover the hosting, licensing and maintenance costs associated with keeping these sites excellent resources.

Before you choose to sponsor thearlingtontheater.com, it's important to know a few things about this great opportunity to do something smart for your business and something good for the community.
With two hundred thousand page views annually, thearlingtontheater.com, is much more than just a calendar of the many fantastic events at this historic location. It's also an online resource for in depth show reviews, world class photography and perhaps the web's top destination for information about the renowned and hugely popular Santa Barbara International Film Festival. This site boasts over 400 unique pages of valuable content for its visitors, including over a thousand professionally shot photographs.
On thearlingtontheater.com, as you read this, thousands of visitors from right in Santa Barbara, all over the country and throughout the world, are making plans to see a big concert, lecture or attend the Santa Barbara Film Fest. They are purchasing their tickets using the site's live link to Ticketmaster and getting ready to spend their hard earned dollars in our community on things they love to do like eat at great restaurants, stay in comfortable hotels, shop at cool stores and shops and so much more.
More good news. When you sponsor thearlingtontheater.com, the cost is low and the value is high. That's right, only $119 per month or $1199 for either a large skyscraper or prominent marquee banner, each with two ads in rotation (only one other sponsor).
How in the heck do we manage to charge so little for a sponsorship? We do it by eliminating the paper work and letting you manage your sponsorship online. The sign up process is really easy to use and you can change your banner up to once a month. You'll use your credit card to make the purchase and billing takes place monthly or annually depending on which plan you choose.
(means you like your business to be front and center)
Talk about getting in someone's face in a good way. Consider that a Marquee sponsorship means your banner appears on every other page viewed right at the top, front and center in a place that viewers see each and every time they visit our site. Think of it this way, it's kinda like having front row tickets to your favorite band and all the fun and action is guaranteed to come your way.*
(means you made a very smart decision)
This banner appears conspicuously on the right or left side of every single page on the web site. At the size of 160x600 pixels, it's plenty big enough to get everyone's attention. This commitment is a super value. Just two of them run in rotation in a very prominent location next to the main content.*
A Half Is As Good As A Whole
Hmm, a half is as good as a whole? How's that you say? Here's how. When your sponsorship of thearlingtontheatre.com includes a half skyscraper, it's good to know that this banner is not only one of a kind, it also happens to be mighty persistent. Persistent? How can a banner be persistent? After all, its just a banner. Here's how...unlike a full skyscraper or a marquis both of which run in rotation with one other sponsor's banner, this one stays put....that's right...it stays put on each and every single, solitary page throughout the site. On the home page...there it is. On the reviews page...yep, it's there again. On show schedule page....you got it...the half skyscraper is letting the world know its a very big and important part of ever growing by leaps and bounds popularity of thearlingtontheatre.com.*
A Smart Deed is A Good Deed
Remember, when you sponsor thearlingtontheater.com, you not only do something smart for your business, you also help support the only web site for this historic theater.
