How to Advertise on Stat Trek

Advertising on Stat Trek is a smart, cost-effective way to reach students, teachers, researchers, and business professionals - especially those with interest in statistics and probability.

Google AdWords

Use Google AdWords to advertise on Stat Trek.

  • You define the budget you're comfortable with. There is no spending commitment. You can spend as little or as much as you like, and you can pause or stop anytime.
  • You choose where you want your ad to appear. Advertisers use the Google Display Network to handpick specific sites to show their ads, and you can use the network to advertise on the Stat Trek website.

To use the Google Display Network, you need to have a Google AdWords account. Signing up for Google AdWords is free. You only pay when someone clicks your ad to visit your website. In other words, you only pay when your advertising is working. If you don't already have an AdWords account, sign up now.

Advertising Campaign

After you have an AdWords account, you need to create an AdWords campaign to reach your customers. This involves answering three basic questions related to your ad:

  • How much do you want to pay for your ad? This is your budget and your bid. Your bid strategy controls how much you'll pay when customers click your ad. Your budget is the average amount you’re comfortable spending each day on your campaign. The budget you choose is entirely up to you, and you can adjust it at any time.
  • What will your ad look like? You can choose from many different ad formats - text ads, image ads, video ads, and more. Learn about available ad formats and how to choose what’s right for you.
  • Where do you want your ad to appear? You can specify geographic locations or you can identify particular websites where you want to display your ad. In the next section, we describe how to place your ad on the Stat Trek website.

If any of this is unclear, read a more detailed description of how to create an AdWords campaign.
