Comment: Ad Prices Cut Sharply

ILW.COM is pleased to announce that we are reducing prices for service provider ads in Immigration Daily significantly - from $2999 for a year, down to $999 for a year (and from $999 for 3 months, down to $399 for 3 months). We introduced these ads about 9 years ago to provide a way for providers of services/products (to the immigration bar) a way to accomplish two things: (i) get direct inquiries about the products/services and (ii) to remain in front of their prospects once a week, for an extended period of time. These ads proved popular, and several years after introduction, Immigration Daily carried 10-15 ads each week (spread over 5 daily issues). Subsequently, advertising technology web-wide has improved, and is often $-for-$ better, thus our big drop in price. This brings Immigration Daily back into alignment with the market, indeed makes us a powerful alternative to other options. We look forward to carrying more ads of this nature in the course of 2014. For more info, and to place ads in Immigration Daily, please see: here.
