Advertising & Membership With SCOUT
Scout offers a broad selection of prime, over-sized, and totally clickable advertising spaces ranging from the totally inexpensive to the very, very cheap. Priced per month (at least 2 month terms) at rates that are in lockstep with the tough economic times, our ads are ideal marketing solutions for local businesses that are looking to put their brands and special events in front of thousands of web-savvy Vancouverites every day without paying the heavy premium of print. For prices and all advertising inquiries, please email email@example.com.
NOTE: The purchase of advertising or a GOODS membership does not buy editorial. Nothing buys editorial.
