Generate traffic for the stories that matter to you!
Promoted content is a great way to get your message out to a wider audience. Promoted content remains on the website indefinitely, and over time can build up a considerable number of reads, and can be used to drive traffic to your own website.
Please contact us to discuss your story idea first before purchasing this option.
Also, please note that all promoted articles will be marked with a light blue ‘Promoted’ category tag to distinguish it from our regular journalism and features.
We currently only publish one promoted article a day, and advertisers can choose the day and time of publication, subject to availability.
