Soaring Café began January 1st, 2011. We had a great first year with over 1,000 posts and we continue to provide excellent content for our viewers today. We began 2013 with over 2,500 posts to the website—a delightful surprise for us!
Crunching the numbers
About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. Our site was viewed about 1,600,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 29 years for that many people to see it. Our site had more visits than a small country in Europe!
In 2012, there were 1,274 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 0ver 2,000 posts.
The busiest day of the year was August 6th with 14,992 views. All these numbers seem absolutely incredible to Rand and me.
We hope you will consider advertising with us. As you can see, we have allocated advertising space in several locations. We have 125 x 125 pixel image ads in the right sidebar, banner ads in the header, and more ad space throughout the site. All our ad space is designed to allow for click-throughs to your site. Your advertising objectives may be to establish your brand or to target specific products to which visitors can click through directly and purchase from your site.
Soaring Café is also growing as an international online magazine. The data we have shows that we are growing around the world with about half of our viewers coming from the US. In fact, Soaring Café has been viewed in more than 150 countries around the world.
We realize that everyone’s budget is tight and there are many opportunities for you to select where you place your advertising dollars. We believe that we provide advertisers a valuable tool with AdRotate. You will be able to see exactly how many times your ad is displayed and how many times someone clicks through to your site or your product listing. You can monitor how effective your ad is and determine for yourself whether your ad is producing enough traffic to justify the expense.
Below is a table of our advertising rates.
|Location (Zone)||Size||Introductory Rate||Click to See Example|
|Header||460 w x 60 h||$95 per month||460 x 60 Banner|
|Right Sidebar Company Ad||125 w x 125 h||$65 per month||125 x 125 Square|

*To place a Product Ad in the Right Sidebar at the $25 rate, you must also place an ad in one other zone.
We have the ability to constrain ad placement. For example, you may not want your ad to display on a page at the same time as you competitor’s ad; so, we can create a rule that prevents you and your competitor(s) from displaying on the page in a zone at the same time. Restrictions will not be allowed which prevent other ads from displaying as often as your ad.
