What can we do for you?
Brighton and Hove News is a well-established independent news website which has been making its mark in the city since 2009.
So far in 2016, we have been averaging 215,000 visitors and almost 420,000 hits a month, not to mention more than 88,000 followers across a range of social media – and all these figures are growing all the time.
What’s more, because we only report what’s going on in Brighton and Hove, our audience is made up mostly of people who live or work in the city.
This means that we can help you reach at least 150,000 potential customers every month. This makes us the most cost-effective way to reach the audience you want.
So how can we help you?
We have banners, skyscrapers and other display ads available on the site. We also offer sponsored editorials, premium listing pages and bundled and custom packages. Click here to download the media pack and rate card, and you can also email us or call Jo on 01273 530 829 or Frank on 07799 895798.
Who can I reach?
Our traffic has grown steadily since we launched in 2009. We now typically get more than 10,000 hits a day, with regular spikes as high as 60,000.
Half this traffic comes from servers registered to Brighton, and more than 80 per cent is from the city, surrounding areas and London, which suggests that Brighton and Hove commuters are logging on from work.
We also have tens of thousands of followers on our social media accounts. As of November 2016, we have
- 58,600 Twitter followers – more than any other Brighton and Hove media organisation
- 29,550 Facebook likes – more than any other Sussex media organisation, including BBC Sussex and The Argus
- 250,000 social media engagements a month
Sarah Lewis took out a sponsored editorial with us for her Brighton Writers Retreat workshops. Within a week she had more bookings than she knew what to do with.
One customer told her: “I heard about you on Twitter, via Brighton and Hove News; googled your webpages and booked on – very impulsive for me.”
She says: “I’ll definitely consider advertising with Brighton and Hove News again.”
What is a sponsored editorial?
A sponsored editorial is like a magazine article. We write an article all about your business or you can supply the copy. They are posted on the site like any other article with the headline and a link appearing on all our social media accounts. You could write about competitions, giveaways or campaigns. They appear on the front page for as long as it takes for them to be knocked off by newer editorials and they stay on the site forever unless or until you want them removed.
What is a front page premium ad?
Front page premium ads include a display ad on our home page – our most visited page. These link through to a permanent editorial page on our site which typically includes a profile of your business or details of your products, services or your latest offers. The editorial page also includes embedded links to your website and social media accounts.
