Welcome to the Hardnoyz advertisers resource area. The aim of this area is to ensure you have plenty of information to help you decide if Hardnoyz.co.uk is the right site for you to advertise on, with the right audience for your product and then to help you get the best return from your investment with us.
For all advertising enquiries please contact shane [at] hardnoyz.co.uk
These prices are only available to music industry companies who contribute content to the site. Our corporate rates are available on request from shane [at] hardnoyz.co.uk
Sponsorship can help your brand build a relationship with our community. For example, our high quality DJ mix podcasts gives our readers something for free that represents real value, which your brand could be associated with.
Vertical banner – lower left hand (120 x 240), a limited number of these are available to new / smaller projects, at £100 plus vat for 4 weeks.
Custom half banner – right hand (300 x 170), £200 plus vat for 4 weeks.
Leaderboard – top of page (728 x 90), £375 plus vat for 4 weeks.
Top-ups: If you purchase the leaderboard, there are then two top-up options available for the same campaign.
– Leaderboard (728 x 90) + skyscraper package (120 x 600), £500 plus vat.
– Leaderboard (728 x 90) + skyscraper (120 x 600) + medium rectangle package (300 x 250), £700 plus vat.
For example, 10 companies have a leaderboard banner rotating round the site. For an extra £125 plus vat you can increase your exposure to our readers by also having a skyscraper at the same time. The likely hood is that not all 10 advertisers will do this, so for a relatively small amount you can get a lot of extra exposure.
From this package you can top up further to also add the medium rectangle, which sits at the top right hand side of the site, level with the editorial, so more within the line of sight of readers. Again the likely hood is that even fewer will top up to this top package, where you might find yours and just a couple other banners rotating in this prime box, giving maximum exposure to your product.
Site takeovers & bespoke campaigns
Along with banner advertising and site takeovers we can create bespoke campaigns with activities that work cohesively to target the audience and not only get your message out but also taken note of.
