Advertiser Account

What is an Advertiser Account?

An advertiser account is provided to any advertiser who purchases an online package for Cape Cod Life ONLINE (capecodlife.com). An advertiser account allows you instantly update information in your capecodlife.com resource listing including business name, contact info, hours, social media pages, photos, video, and more!

You must purchase an online package for capecodlife.com to receive an advertiser account. “A la carte” banner advertisements will not receive an advertiser account.

Receiving your Advertiser Account

When you purchase an online package with Cape Cod Life Publications, your advertiser account will be created within 7-10 business days. You will receive an email containing the username and password for your advertiser account.

The email will be sent to the email address your Sales Rep has on file unless otherwise specified.

  • If this is not the email address you would like to use, you may update this later from the Profile Settings page.
  • If you do not have access to this email address anymore, contact your Sales Rep and the email address will be updated.

Adding Video

You can include a Youtube-hosted video in your listing page using the “Youtube Video URL or ID” field. You will NOT need a Youtube account to use a video already hosted on Youtube. You will only need a Youtube account to upload your own video.
Use a video already on Youtube
  1. Find the video on Youtube
  2. Copy the URL in the address bar
  3. Paste the URL into the ”Youtube Video URL or ID” field in the Advertiser Settings

Quick Tips

  • You can paste either the video ID or the entire video URL (including “http://”) into the ”Youtube Video URL or ID” field.
  • Manage your videos directly from Youtube (if using your own account). The video in your listing will update automatically.

Adding an Image Gallery

You can include a Flickr-hosted image set using the “Flickr Set ID” field. You will need a Flickr account containing at least one set. While it is possible to use sets from other Flickr users, it is not advised (since you do not have control of the gallery).
