Advertise on Slugger…

Slugger does not get any funding so to help us cover costs we offer you the chance to buy limited non-intrusive ads. 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?

In March 2015 we had 82,873 users who read 411,923 pages of content.

How much will it cost? All the prices below are for one month.

Permanent ads in the right side panel:

  • £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).

Permanent ads on the homepage:

£500 for a 1038×120 full width ad on the homepage

Permanent ads on the top of posts:

£400 for a 1038×120 full width ad on the homepage

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
