Why Advertise On GLD?

On GLD, your audience selects the category that relates to your product. If your product relates to that category, you know they are interested in you! It’s not an automated system repurposing ads that relate to something that was of interest yesterday. Every ad relates to now! This is realtime marketing, like a sign hanging in your store and your customer is standing in front of it. If you sell tents, and someone is interested in going camping, you will want to be on the campsites category so you show up next to every campsite listing and camping article in the “Stories From The Lakes” section.

How Does It Work?

We drill it down so your ad is placed in front of the right audience! All categories in the “GLD-Great Lakes Filter” are separated within specific markets. When a visitor comes to GLD to search their interests, they filter by category and only that category of sites appears on the map. You pick your category(s). GLD brings it all together… and the nice thing is that people visiting GLD are probably planning on spending money. It’s a win win for everyone. GLD visitors don’t have to look at a lot of unnecessary ads, and you know that when someone sees your ad they picked your topic of interest all by themselves.

We Create Your Ad For You!

In most cases, you supply the message and link and we will take care of putting the ad together, no extra charge. You never have to worry about hiring a designer, adding to the cost. We will take your information and create an ad for you that fits the site and makes you one of the supported resources. If you have an image you would like incorporated, we will place it, though we do have standards and if the photo does not meet them, we’ll outline why and how you may be able to correct it. If you do not have an image we can help find a local resource that can help you out. It’s that easy to list on GLD! If you prefer stock photography, take a look at or
