Los Angeles Streetsblog – Now Advertiser Supported
I’m sure that by now you’ve noticed the advertisement for Flying Pigeon L.A. that appeared on the website yesterday. Yes, after months of planning, L.A. Streetsblog is now advertiser supported. This new revenue stream will allow Streetsblog to continue publishing in Los Angeles without financial support from New York and allows advertisers to speak directly to the tens of thousands of Streetsblog readers every month.
I’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone that Flying Pigeon is the first organization to purchase advertising on the website given the role their owner has taken in our comments section and their sponsorship of our second fundraiser. I also purchased the Streetsblog Baby Mover there, and would recommend the store even if they weren’t an advertiser. If you’re interested in a quality road bike, I would click on that link on the right and check them out. (Tell them Streetsblog sent you…)
There are four kinds of advertisements now available on the site. The one you see on the right, and one’s others that are half that size, can be bought on a monthly basis. For advertisements such as the ones viewable below, we’ll sell them on a “per view” basis. Streetsblog doesn’t discriminate based on anything except we won’t publish ads that are slanderous, libel or just plain untruthful. If you’re interested in a copy of our rate sheet, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Yes, you can advertise on any and all of the Streetsblogs.
Here’s the spacing for our other advertisements. The banner advertisement at the top is 720×90 pixels. The one on the side is 300×250. The current Flying Pigeon advertisement is 120×120 and smaller ones are available at 120×60.
