Below are the many options we offer, divided between small local businesses (mate rates, basically) and larger, national and international companies.
From front-page advertorial space to sponsoring one of our fab & groovy features or month-long competitions, there’s something for everyone on the Guide. Whatever you choose, we’ll make it our business to help your business, spreading the good word far and wide. And then a little bit further.
Our policy is No Flat Ads. We want you to be part of the Guide, and that means making your presence on the GG Love Train a fun,informative and integral ride.
Keen to help small businesses and solo tradespeople in particular, we have very special prices for those not exactly rolling in dough. So, local business rates here are often half, sometimes more, our already good value standards. For the big boys, we have VIP sponsorship packages where you can be part of our daily posts for the week, or even a whole month.
Local Business: The Big Push
On the small local business front, for that urgent push, we have introduced front-page advertorial spaces at €35 for a 6-week promotion – three days on our What’s Hot This Weekcover banner, four days on our front-page Recommended list, plus an extra five weeks on your soaraway Guide. Plus, inpost teaser links for that first week. We’re currently getting over 200,000 hits a month, so… Boom!
Sponsor A Page A Day!
Again, for that upcoming business, you can also sponsor a new page a day for seven days, staying on the site for five weeks – and all for just €30. This option will see an acknowledgement of your sponsorship – with a link to your site – as part of a popular article each day for seven fresh posts over seven different days, with each sponsorship presence staying on the site for five whole weeks. Or why not go completely bonkers – for €50, you get fourteen fresh posts on fourteen different days, each teaser circle staying on the Guide for ten whole weeks…?
Be A Guide Cover Star!
Alternatively, you can become a Guide Cover Star, with a video chat, photos and profile, all wrapped up in, yep, a sparkling cover story, for just €75. Again, this is available only to local artists, artisans and businesses. Find out more here.
As we strive to avoid traditional ads on our front page, we instead make you an integral to the Guide, with a specially-designed, tailor-made GG page. Being part of a feature is a far friendlier, funkier, more direct way of reaching readers without ever stepping into spam territory.
Which is pretty much what Facebook and co. have turned into these days.
So, you can see your beautiful face on the cover for just €75 – reaching a lot of shiny, happy Greystonians in the process.
