A Unique Guide To Tucson, Bisbee, Tubac,
Tombstone & Surrounding Areas
Please note. We do not "sell" advertising. Advertising is by invitation only. We have a simple rule that makes us different from all other publishers. "If we cannot wholeheartedly recommend your establishment to our friends & family, you cannot advertise on our website."
In this way, all of our 300,000+ annual visitors know that we recommend all of our local advertisers. Usually, an invitation to advertise is extended after we have written and published a positive review.
Sample Ad Sizes & Rates

Sponsor Ads are always placed at the top of a page or post just beneath our Southern Arizona Guide Banner & Main Menu. The advantage to this placement is visibility. It is possible for a standard ad in a standard placement to be located lower on a page or post and not be seen by some visitors to our website.
Obviously, when ads are not seen, they garner no clicks. This issue is eliminated for our sponsors. Any visitor who goes to a particular section or sub-section that has a sponsor is going to see that sponsor's message.
Sponsor a Section or Sub-Section. The Guide has 15 Major Sections on the Main Menu, such as Attractions, Adventures, Dining, & Events Calendar. There are dozens of sub-sections in drop-down menus. For example, our visitors find Best Tucson Restaurants in a sub-section under the Main Dining Section.
These are typically the first page visitors see when looking for a particular category and, thus, get the most traffic. RATE: $1,200 per year. This rate includes (1) one banner size click-through display ad at the beginning of a section; (2) an additional same size ad in our Standard Rotation; and (3) a Hot Spot on any related Interactive Map.
Video Feature: $500 Per Year.
Some of our advertisers, such as artist Diana Maderas, already have a video they want to use as one of their ads. We are happy to display them if they are appropriate for our audience and are of high quality production values.
All advertising is paid in advance. Renewal invoices will be emailed two months in advance.
