New – advertise on slugger from only £50 a month…

Slugger does not get any funding so to help us cover costs we are introducing limited non-intrusive ads.

We hate annoying ads as much as you so we promise we will only run static ads or text based ads. We will not run any animated ads, auto start video ads, pop-ups or anything that could get on your wick.

The ads will mainly be at the bottom of the right hand side bar, you can see some there now.

How many users do we have?

Last month (March 2015) we had 82,873 users who read 411,923 pages of content.

How much will it cost?

  • £50 for a 3 line text ad with a link
  • £100 for a 3 line text ad with a link and your logo/graphic
  • £150 for a 300px wide by 150px graphic ad (we can create the graphic for you).
  • £200 for a 300px wide by 300px graphic ad (we can create the graphic for you).

Other options are available on request. We will also consider site sponsorship or other forms of marketing.

We are keeping things simple, we are going to hard code the ads so your ad will appear on every page for one month, they will not be on rotation with other ads. For ad people who know the jargon this works out at only 12p per CPM – a bargain. We encourage you to use non tracking links that way you will also get an SEO boost for your site. The ads will also bypass ad blockers so they will be seen.

What is your reader demographic?

People interested in politics and current affairs tend to well-educated and higher earners. So again for the ad people it would be AB. Our audience is 80% NI based.

Some ideas for ads:

  • Promote your event/conference
  • List a job ad
  • Promote your site or service
  • Promote your educational programme
  • Political/election ads

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
