While our main focus is on bringing our readers engaging, fresh content and not on getting more advertisers we do currently have very inexpensive advertising slots available. Our rates will continue to stay as low as possible as we really care more about making sure that everyone can afford it despite our constantly increasing traffic. AR15News.com features 125hx250w or 125×125 square banner slots that are displayed on every page on this site. The smaller banners are rotated randomly to ensure that each advertiser receives time in the top positions. The larger banners are stationary. We are working on moving to all 125hx250w banners at which time they will be able to rotate. Your banner can be linked to any URL of your choice such as your main website home page, a specific product on your website or even to a Facebook Page. We do not sell our top position for an extra fee.
APPLY AS A PARTNER
We look at our advertisers as partners. When we take on a new partner, we consider it a personal endorsement of that partner. We will not enter into a partnership with a business that we can not endorse.
To apply as a partner:
1. Apply – Contact AR15NEWS via the Contact Form below to establish your interest in becoming a partner. We will contact you shortly after receiving your email to discuss our advertising options.
2. Submit – Submit your 125hx250w or 125×125 banner artwork for review. We review the banner to be sure that it conforms to our simple standards (listed below).
3. Payment – AR15NEWS will send you an invoice via Email or Paypal (your choice). We are actively pursuing an alternative to Paypal due to their anti-gun stance. Once we find a suitable means we will switch but for now it is the only good way of online payment. If you prefer, you can also pay via check or money order, but the ad will not be published until the payment has cleared unless we make other arrangements with you.
4. Publish – The banner will be published within 24 hours of completed payment. (Typically within an hour or so)
We ask that the banner adhere to 3 simple standards:
1. 125hx250w or 125×125 Pixels – All rotating banners must be 125×125 pixels.
2. Animation – Most Gif files work, but you will have to use a static image if it doesn’t.
3. “G” Rated – The banner should not contain anything unsuitable for readers of all ages.
PRICING AND STATS
AR15NEWS has become the go to site for you guessed it, news about the AR-15. According to our latest Google Analytics report, AR15NEWS.com averages over 83,000 unique visitors to the website each month. Those visitors create an average of almost 152,000 individual visits to the site and over 200,000 page views per month. But that’s not all, we also leverage our nearly 200,000 fans on Facebook as well to maximize our immediate reach. The page views could be made higher by only showing snip-its of each article on our home page but we choose to show the entire article on our home page to make it easier for our readers.
We do not charge per click or impression. We charge a flat rate to display your banner for a fixed amount of time. We do not guarantee any amount of traffic as much of the success of an ad depends on how engaging you make the content of the ad. You can choose from the following terms.
- 6 Months – $400
- 12 Months – $750
- Alternative terms available upon request
- We recommend that you host the banner and send us the link so that you can change the banner when you choose. We can host your banner image on AR15NEWS and will gladly change it once every 30 days.
Thank you for your interest in becoming one of our site sponsors. Please fill out the form and we'll get in contact with you as soon as possible. - Ben
