Advertising in KRL!
Note: 10% of all advertising money will go to one of 3 animal rescues–Animal Compassion Team of Fresno House On The Kings in Parlier or Rattie Ratz in Clayton. (All in California) You can choose which rescue, or we can choose for you.
Note: Rogue Festival Time (March) and October are our top readership months, thus prices are higher during those months so if you are interested in those times please request a special quote. October of 2012 we had a readership of 14,000. Contact us for current prices for these prime months. March price difference will only apply to certain types of ads as it is our entertainment articles that go up during that month.
Spring ad special: Purchase 2 months of ads & get 1 month free or purchase 6 months and get 2 months free!
Average readership is approximately 8000-9000 unique users per month. Approximately a third of those are in Fresno and the surrounding communities all the way south to Visalia—with the largest of those audiences being Fresno. Approximately two thirds are California-with the top readership outside of the Valley being Los Angeles and San Francisco. The top states besides CA are New York and Texas, and the rest of our readers are spread out across the country, and in the UK and Australia.
The following ads are on the sidebars and visible on all pages, however they do not go through on feeds:
144 x 144 button ad provided by advertiser ready to go-$50 a month or 125 x 125 for $40 a month. This is probably our best selling and most popular ad. To purchase the prime spot with this ad near the top of the page, add an extra $10 a month.
144 x 400 vertical long button ad on far right sidebar- $60 a month or 125 x 400 vertical button on first sidebar for $50 a month.
If you cannot provide your own ad we have an ad designer that will design one for you for a one time $20 fee as long as the ad does not change and advertiser provides logo or artwork ($40 if we have to create artwork)—with 2 revisions. Later this year we hope to be working with a graphics company who will also offer more ad design services–though at much higher rates. Links however can be easily changed without an extra fee. All ads include a link to your website/Facebook page.
Other advertising options:
Banner ad at the bottom of an article height 125 x width 400 $15 per ad if sent in ready to go. This ad may remain at the bottom of this article indefinitely unless otherwise requested—but for sure at least for a year. One of the advantages of internet publishing.
Or you can purchase the same ad to appear in every article in your chosen category for a month-prices vary by category. The current rates for our top 3 categories are as follows: $45 for A & E, $55 for mystery and pet (these are our most widely read categories). This is a great choice for these categories because we do a lot of these within a month. If you are purchasing multiple months we can offer a discount on the top categories.
If you decide to go with the banner ad, pick a section that best fits your audience-most of our other categories are $30 a month. If you are looking to include an audience outside of the Fresno area-our mystery and pet articles bring in readers all over the US, as well as some of our non mystery book, movie & CD review and food articles. Some articles crossover into more than one section, and banner ads will go through on the feeds.
Primary Categories include:
Kings River Reviewers (prices for this one are for the subcategories as there are many-however, you can request a rate quote for the entire category)
Arts & Entertainment
(there are also subcategories)
We suggest you browse the categories to make sure you pick the one best suited for your ad.
We feature articles from throughout the Fresno/Visalia areas with a strong current focus on Reedley, secondary on Sanger. In the entertainment section there is a heavy focus on Fresno and Visalia—this is always expanding. Again, our mystery market & some regional reviewers & food articles, our pet articles, and our new rodents/pets sub category are read nationwide and some are even ad in other countries. We also have a special teen section, which is constantly evolving.
Note: We can also off combination specials of bottom of the article banner ads and a sidebar ad together at a special price. If interested, ask for a quote.
Mystery writer/bookstore special: $5 a month for a special full page ad listed in the All Things Mystery event page category for your book or website—if we have reviewed your book, and/or interviewed you we can include a link on the page to those articles. The cost goes up to $10 if we have to design it. Please check this out before you purchase to make certain you understand what you are getting-the size of the ad is great but they will have to click on a link to it to see it–the link will be visible on all pages. Please be aware this is essentially an event page and all that will show on the article pages until you click on it is a line of text so button and banner ads are much more widely seen. This is just a budget option for those who can’t afford anything beyond that.
We provide listings of your book tours at no cost. Bottom of article banner ads (see above) are also an inexpensive choice and those ads are essentially permanent.
We hope to be offering prime banner ads height 125 x width 400 soon that will show just above the calendar on all pages and possibly one toward the top under our Kings River Life Magazine logo. If interested in knowing when this is available just let us know. The price on these will be significantly higher than the rest of our ads.
Ad prices are subject to change at any time and we will be offering specials off and on.
Note: All ads can be linked to your website/Facebook
Publishers note: We reserve the right to turn down any ad, or ad placement, that we deem not to be appropriate.
