The Gonzales Chamber of Commerce is happy to provide you with another way to get your message to the community: the opportunity to portray your customized message on our website. Sponsorship is open to the community, you do not have to be a Chamber Member to sponsor on the Chamber of Commerce website.

Online sponsorship is a great way to promote your business, your organization’s fundraiser, get the word out about a cause, or point users to your online store. It also provides a beneficial assistance to the Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture.

The process is simple:
1. You create a 500 pixel by 500 pixel image, and pick out a URL the image will hyperlink to (This URL points to a page on your website, your facebook page, or other online webpage). Instructions on how to get a 500 by 500 pixel image are written below.
2. You decide where you would like the advertisement to appear on our website. Zones are listed out below.
3. You use our online form to process your payment, pick your space, upload your image, and designate your link.
Your advertisement will display in the space you have chosen for the amount of time that you have paid for.
4. Payments are processed online through PayPal.

Hire a Professional

Use Instagram

Use Canva

If you’re new to creating web images, you have several options. All of our sponsorship images need to be sized to 500 x 500 pixels. A pixel is a basic unit of programmable color on a computer display or in a computer image. There are several ways to create a 500 x 500 pixel image:

  • Have a designer or marketing expert create one for you
  • Download Instagram on your phone, and in settings, give Instagram access to saving each photo to your phone gallery folder. Upload a picture on Instagram using their default square format. It will then save a copy of that photo to the gallery on your phone. Different phones will save instagram photos on differing sizes, so you will then need to adjust the aspect ratio of the photo to 500 x 500. There are many ways to do this online.
  • Use a free resource like Canva, and use any of their “Social Media” layouts. Design something quickly and easy, and use their “Download” option in the upper right hand corner.

Creating Images of the Correct Size

So you’ve got an image, but it isn’t 500 pixels by 500 pixels. That’s okay! Use the free resources below to convert your image to size:

  • If you have the capability to resize an image yourself, resize the image to 500 pixels by 500 pixels.
  •  Use ResizePicOnline (will only work on square images)
  • Use an online cropping tool like ResizeIt

Using the options above, you can create an image that is 500 x 500 pixels to upload into our publisher.
