About Advertising on Virginia Websites

My name is Gary Cope. I am a Virginia Tech graduate and the founder and owner of CWI Media, LLC, which owns two Virginia Tech sports sites; VTHokieFans.com and TechHoops.com. Together, the two sites make up the network for AdvertiseVA.com.

Small businesses are the backbone of this country. We know, we are a small business. We also know that marketing budgets have to go a lot further these days given the economy. And that's where we want to help you and your business or organization. For less than the cost of a single full-page ad in a newspaper, that will only be run once, you can advertise on two of the most popular and trusted Virginia Tech Hokies sports sites on the web, with an audience of more than 161,000, for a full year. Your ad on our two sites, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for a full 12 months. All for $3,000. That's less than 2 cents per potential customer!

As we're sure you know, both the Virginia Tech basketball and football teams are coming off successful seasons and are poised for historic campaigns in 2010-2011. We want to help you reach the more than 161,000 Virginia Tech fans that visit our sites every year.

Campus Emporium in Blacksburg has been a proud sponsor of TecHoops.com for three years; Gobbler Gear in Salem has advertised on VTHokieFans.com for the last two seasons; and this year, Hard Times Cafe came on board as a proud advertiser.

Our team of writers are among the most knowledgeable and respected when it comes to covering the Hokies. In 2009, TechHoops.com was selected as one of the best sports sites in the DC area by Washingtonian Magazine. And VTHokieFans.com has been quoted in articles in major newspapers like the Baltimore Sun and Roanoke Times.

Here's what you get when you advertise with our sites:

Sponsor Articles

Have a promotion, new product or sale that you want to promote? Write up the copy and we will post at as a sponsor article.

300Î250 Ad Banner

Your banner will rotate with the other sponsor banners on every page refresh, on both sites.
