Ads range from $25 to $40 a month and for that low price, you receive a large marketplace ad with a 125x125 image of your choosing that links directly to your Web site or page. We will also place an additional 120x90 ad in a rotation that is visible on the homepage and on EVERY PAGE of the Web site.
Since 2001, SeeingBlack.com has developed an international reputation for news and cutting-edge reviews of arts, media and politics for a new generation of readers and thinkers. We have grown to more than 200,000 page views/impressions each month.
Writing about us, MSNBC.com said, "Big words. Big thoughts. Big-hearted site." Black Issues Book Review said that we are "refreshingly different from the countless web loggers lurking on the Internet." Tavis Smiley described us as "dedicated to the dissemination of reviews and news from a Black perspective." In 2006, we were named a finalist in the Online Journalism Awards sponsored by the Online News Association and the Annenberg School of Communications at USC.
We appreciate your interest in our site and are willing to tailor packages to suit your needs. Based on our surveys, more than 90 percent of our users are African American, split roughly between men and women, and ranging in age from 18 to 60, with most concentrated in the age range of 24 to 54. They go to movies, theater, exhibits, concerts and various community events. They buy and discuss books, and also travel. We reach this untapped market, just as you can reach them with the placement of your ads. Compared to what is being spent on major media, our low-cost advertisements are very affordable, and allow us to continue to reach this growing and underserved audience.
We thank you for considering SeeingBlack.com to reach your audience and customers. We are happy to direct you to more information in our independent, automated stats package that details our growing traffic and number of users. We reserve the right to limit ourselves to ads suitable for a family-friendly site. You must supply your own standard size banner or, for a fee, we will design an ad for you. We can also create a permanent web page or “mini-site” for you.
Please contact us to have your ad posted in time for the holiday shopping season.
