Sponsored Content

Beyond the banner ad. MH provides engaging & informative CONTENT-driven advertising. We are innovators in this arena. The advantages of content-driven marketing are many. Sponsored content is not only searchable, but improves your company’s search engine optimization (show up in search engine more often and closer to the top). Whereas banner ads may be able to catch an eye, they are unable to tell a story. Customized sponsored content provides readers with an enjoyable way to learn about who you are and what you do. Further, content allows us to position an advertiser in a targeted fashion- be viewed as a knowledgeable expert in your field, show your fun side, highlight your charitable contributions. The possibilities are endless.
