other words you must have a web page developed so that when the ad is clicked there

We only display events that are open to all members of the LMC community on the LMC homepage. For example if you are hosting an information session you must have a page on the
LMC website that talks about the event and it must be open to everyone at LMC to attend.
We do not advertise club activities on the home page of the LMC website but we will
post it to our social media channels (Facebook , Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc.).
You must supply the artwork.
Campus TV screens
Advertisements can be displayed all the TV monitors at the Pittsburg and Brentwood
campus locations. The image display slot is 1280 x 720 pixels. If you have an image for the display or need one designed please contact web support.
Advertising on InSite
There is a slideshow widget available to us to advertising upcoming events and information
that relates to all students. The LMC marketing department can help design the banner
for you but we require a lead time of at least 1 week to get the banner created and
posted for optimal viewing.
The requested banner ad must also have an associated web link for more details relating
to the event.
If creating the ad yourself it can be an animated GIF or JPG but keep in mind the
final file size can not exceed 32K otherwise will be rejected by the system.
Insite banners: 570 x 180 GIF or JPG (Must be under 32k)
Placement of banner is dependent on the screen size of the viewer and how they arrange
