GENERAL GUIDELINES
Only Drexel University student groups, departments, or professional organizations may submit an ad to be displayed on the Drexel InfoNET. There is no charge for advertising on the infonet. Please fill out ALL of the fields in the form below, attach your ad (1360 x 564 JPG), and click SEND. Ads are normally processed twice a week by an available staff member who reviews each ad for quality, content, and specifications. However, the system is not maintained full time so you must plan ahead and allow for adequate time well ahead of your event to post your ad. Ads are permitted to run for 2 weeks prior. If there is an event date, any ad submitted prior to the 2 week period will automatically be dated 2 weeks prior to your event date. You must plan ahead to insure your ad is received in time. Ads can not run for longer than 2 weeks due to the volume of ads we receive. Multiple ads for one event are also not permitted. For ongoing or yearound events, please re-submit your ad every 2 weeks. Ads currently play for 10 seconds so it is important to display minimal copy and communicate your message or event date quickly. Due to volume, to effectively promote your event, consider making posters and flyers and submit your events to drexel.edu/events for consideration on the university calendar.

AD REQUIREMENTS
- JPG format (not JPEG)
- 1360 x 564 pixels; 72ppi

SUBMISSION RULE
If you submit an ad and it meets the requirements, it will be added to the que and play. Before submitting an ad, make sure the info on the ad is correct. This also refers to the dates / times / etc.

Ads will not be taken down once they are playing, unless the 2 week playtime has expired.

TIPS

The following tips are offered as advice to make the most effective ads for this medium. Remember, ads on the InfoNET are only displayed for 10 seconds and therefore have a limited ability to communicate information to viewers.

  • Avoid using type smaller than 20 points.
  • Avoid fonts that are too thin, scriptive, decorative, or unusual – especially for wordier areas of text. Reserve special fonts for larger and shorter usage.
  • Avoid too much text. People can't read a page of information in 10 seconds.
  • Keep ads simple. Use as little information needed to get the point across. Cluttered, busy ads can overwhelm viewers.
  • Avoid placing text over intricate or elaborate graphics: it makes it hard to read.
  • Keep the contrast high between font colors and background colors. Light green text on a light blue background is difficult to read.
  • Leave http:// off web addresses: it is unnecessary. URLs should be listed as drexel.edu.
  • Graphics and photos grab peoples' attention. Use them but don't over do it with too many.
  • If advertising an event, don't forget the important information: time, date, location, and whether there is a fee or not.
  • Special effects applied to text (such as drop shadows, embossing, and outlines) can improve legibility when used correctly. They can also make text hard to read. Avoid heavy-handed use of effects especially on copy that is wordy or small.
  • If in doubt, ALWAYS ERROR ON THE SIDE OF SIMPLICITY!
