BANNER ADVERTISING FOR YOUR BUSINESS
If your market place is primarily Cass, South Sarpy or Otoe Counties, NCWP is a great value from an advertising perspective. There is no more cost effective advertising vehicle available today and your support/association with the local City or Village serves as and implied endorsement and introduction for your business. That impressions is simply not available from any other form of advertising. We have most to contribute to a Community that has but a single Postal ZIPcode. More than that, and our services are not as valuable and consequently our essential CRAMES model is incomplete.

Where Does My Money Go?
Your Principal Sponsorship helps support the Nebraska Community Website Project, and funds the local Community Editors who communicate from their respective main streets every week. NCWP pays a stipend directly to the Editor in that Community for approved Weekly Newsletters that communicate small town Nebraska values. We know the "News" we distribute is unlikely to make the Wall Street Journal, but it is just right to feel the pulse of our vital small towns. In this way, you are helping in many ways to keep small town Nebraska culture healthy and attractive as a place to raise families, and do business.
Mission, Methods and Value Proposition Statements:
Nebraska Community Websites Project
To create a sustainable network that captures and communicates small town Nebraska culture and Quality of Life.
Individuals that are well connected to the community are attracted, recruited and incented to gather and document news and stories that provide weekly fresh relevant content for each website.
16 Community Websites representing Cass, South Sarpy and Otoe counties in Nebraska will be built and managed to provide valuable free information sharing utilities for the City, Village or Towns they represent.
Such a Community "Information Portal" is valuable only so long as the content is fresh, relevant, accurate and authentic. To insure authenticity no official City/Village information will be placed on the Website unless a City/Village Charter is in force. The success of this effort will create significant and dependable volumes of website visitors attracted by the fresh content, and interested in local Ads.
In order to fund the fees paid to the Community Editors, and to built and manage promotion infrastructure, Clickable Message Banners will be available to Sponsors that wish to deliver a message directly to Community Visitors.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Question: What if I have a Business in Cedar Creek, can I advertise in Springfield?
Answer: Your sponsorship banner will be seen in all 13 Communities, and any qualified Business or Organization is welcome.
Question: But, what if I do not have a Website for a click-to destination?
Answer: For those that do not currently have a website that can be used as a click-through to destination for their banner, or for those that would need special changes to their website to best accommodate these Cass County visitors we can build a Website Lite landing page that will be perfectly suited to your needs.
Question: What is a "qualified business"
Answer: Our most valued resource is the relationships that we have earned with the Cities and Villages that have granted us a Charter. That Charter very specifically provides the Mayor, City Clerk or Village Board the right to disapprove of any content displayed on the Official Community website. We reserve the right to refuse any sponsorship or banner that does not, in our opinion, fit with the culture, values or interests of the Community we serve.
Question: I am only really interested in Plattsmouth, can I save some money if I just advertise there?
Answer: No. We have made sponsorship as inexpensive as possible, and it is County-wide program.
Question: I noticed that the Beaver Lake, Nebraska website is not completed! Why should I pay for a banner?
Answer: Your Sponsorship is for the project in it's entirety. It is going to increase in popularity over the next weeks and months, but this requires people time and resources. We have priced sponsorship so that you get a very good value, even as the network grows.
Question: Are there rules about what my Message Banner can say?
Answer: As we explained, we maintain very high standards as to information displayed on any Official Community Website. Any message that is inappropriately aggressive, or can not be verified as to it's truthfulness, authority and/or validity will not be displayed out of respect for the Communities that we represent.
Question: Why do you display Message Banners in 3 different places, at each of the 11 Community sites?
Answer: We have studied visitor traffic patterns for more than 12 years at some of our first Community Websites, and it is very dependable. A banner displaying in any of these sections is most likely to be read, and clicked. We have tried to optimize the chances for your message to be seen and clicked. We want for your Sponsorship to be rewarding, and we want for you to be a regular sponsor.
