An impression is each time your banner is displayed and it is displayed on pages viewed by the users. This means that no impression is wasted on unseen pages, unlike many of the ads on TV, websites, or magazines we offer you complete reports at any time during the service so you can gauge how successful your advertising campaign is going. We use a two-prong approach on impressions. The first thing we do is add your logo and linking site or e-mail address to our website so that it is always available on our site for viewers to look at. Than we upload your advertisement as part of our bigger campaign on Facebook to provide impressions that will link to your page or our website, whatever you prefer. This middleman process of impressions opens up your advertisement to a larger audience than putting just a Facebook advertisement up yourself. With impressions you don’t pay the banner ad price (Savings of up to $3/day).

San Diego combines the charm of Spanish heritage with the dynamic energy of the World’s 37th largest Economy. Within 18 incorporated cities, the county offers first rate business services, excellent transportation, major league sports, diverse cultural offerings and resort town scenery and an active outdoor lifestyle.

Mild weather and exceptional natural harbors provide terrific possibilities for residents. Southern California is the largest marine sport-fishing center in the world with some 700 varieties of game fish in its waters. The terrain of the area varies from beaches, bays, lakes and rivers to canyons, valleys, desert and mountains. San Diego is nature’s greatest playground. More than 1,200,000 acres of San Diego County are designated as recreational land. A benefit with our weather is that San Diego is truly one of the most sports-oriented cities in the nation. Almost every conceivable sport (Except those that require ice or snow) can be played here, including, golf, tennis, fishing, bicycling, running, swimming, surfing, hang-gliding, volleyball, racquetball, backpacking and more. We are fortunate to have a vibrant entertainment and arts community. Numerous theaters present classic and contemporary drama, touring Broadway musicals and regional theater on a year-round basis. It is a pedestrians paradise as a short walk anywhere in San Diego leads to fine dining, world-class restaurants and shops. Museums celebrating such varied subjects as contemporary art, aerospace, natural history and oceanography are located throughout the region. History buffs, scholars, and the casual observer will find an abundant treasury of significant historic sites to explore amidst the nearly 2,300 square miles which comprise San Diego, California’s oldest county. San Diego County is an educated area with a broad spectrum of educational choices available in its public schools and an excellent selection of private school. This is the foundation for an affluent and educated community. Professional sports teams are represented by the Padres (baseball), the Chargers(football) and the Sockers (indoor soccer). Equine aficionados can get their fix during the racing season at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club or the Rancho Santa Fe Polo Club. Above all San Diego celebrates and stands for sustainability. “The Environment” is not a 3rd party in San Diego, every day as residents we see the beaches, valleys, mesas, and beauty in our city which makes environmental advances every day. The typically conservative outlook on policies does not particular pertain to environmental strides as residents advocate alternative energy, water conservation, land-use preservation, and the local economy.
