Sponsorship Is a Beautiful Thing (Starting as low as $49 per month!)

When you sponsor one of our web sites, 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 home grown organization located right here in Santa Barbara, here on California's beautiful Central Coast. Created by two long time 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 web sites for those businesses, schools and non-profits which could not afford to do so otherwise.

Two Great Sites Means Your Banner Ads Are Working Hard to Get the Word Out About Your Business

ICDC web sites 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.

GauchosPlay.com


Two banners run in rotation in this single spot.

GauchosPlay.com Sponsorships

Two banners, one in each of the two spots, show on every page view.




Before you choose to sponsor GauchosPlay.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 well over a quarter million page views in the last twelve months, GauchosPlay.com is part of the daily lives of students, faculty, staff and anyone else connected with the UCSB Rec Sports community. This site boasts nearly a thousand unique pages of valuable content for its visitors, including hundreds of great photographs.

Right now, as you read this, your potential customers are using GauchosPlay.com to find out about scores, standings, field locations, employment opportunities, hours of operation, schedules, rosters, galleries, videos and so much more. This information is critical to the Rec Sports community and updated regularly to give users dynamic information critical to their participation in UCSB Rec Sports.

More good news. When you sponsor GauchosPlay.com, the cost is low and the value is high. That's right, only $49 per month or $499 per year for a Standard sponsorship (468x60 size banner ad) and $99 per month or $999 per year for a Marquee sponsorship (468x60) at the top of the page. Each banner runs in its own spot in rotation with one other banner, meaning your banner will appear, on average, on every other page view.

How in the heck do we manage to charge so little for a sponsorship? We do it by eliminating the paper work and the middle man. The sign up process is really easy, 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. You can manage your subscription easily by clicking the Manage My Subscription button next to the PayPal logo below.

468x60 pixel Marquee Sponsorship Banner

(means you're at the top of your game and at the top of GauchosPlay)

This banner appears conspicuously on the site's header, right next to the site logo. Your banner will run in rotation with one other banner, meaning it will appear, on average, on every other page view. Your selection of the Marquee Sponsorship means you get this site's premiere location. In fact, the opportunity is such a great value, we recommend making a one year's commitment, thereby ensuring you'll have the space even when another sponsor wants to take your place.*

468x60 pixel Standard Sponsorship Banner

(means you know a great value when you see it)

Take this opportunity and run, fast, just like our Gauchos who play Rec Sports at UCSB... reason being that these inexpensive positions sell out, fast. There are two of these spots on the site, and each banner shows up on each and every page view.

You're there to be seen by your customers who will not only know you care about your community, but also that you're a good business person who wants to communicate your value wisely, efficiently and effectively. They will enjoy clicking through to your web site and getting to know your business online. Once again, it's a good idea to guarantee your spot for entire year so no one else can lay claim to it after you've made your purchase.*

A Smart Deed is A Good Deed

Remember, when you sponsor GauchosPlay.com, you not only do something smart for your business, you also help the UCSB Rec Sports program maintain and build on a web site that's really important to their day to day operations. In these times of shrinking budgets, it's the business community which steps in so often to save the day, people like you, who appreciate what UCSB Rec Sports does for students, faculty and staff.

TheArlingtonTheatre.com Sponsorships

Two banners run in rotation in the Skyscraper spot.

One banner runs persistently in the Half Skyscraper spot.




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.

468x60 Marquee Sponsorship Banner

(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.*

160x600 Skyscraper Sponsorship Banner

(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.*

160x300 Half Skyscraper Sponsorship Banner

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. Professionals volunteer their time and expertise to contribute fabulous content in the form of show reviews and great photos. The site has become world class in less than three year's of existence and that quality is supported in no small part by you, the business owner, making the commitment to reach your customers using one of the very best local web sites in Santa Barbara County.
