THREE Ways to Advertise

1. Classifieds
Our classified ads are the best way of advertising arts jobs, announcing events or opportunities. Our readers see the classifieds as content they want to read rather than ads they try to ignore. This is how to reach the arts world.Most of our advertisers are repeat clients.

  • Premium Classifieds include a 100X100px image with your ad. The background is shaded, and premium ads are placed first in the center column of the ArtsJournal website and at the top of the column in our newsletters.
  • Regular Classifieds are text only, with a headline, body and link.

Placing a classified ad is easy – and it will be seen on the AJ website and in the 120,000 newsletters we send out each week. The CPM rate is very low – less than $1 for 1000 views. For more details and to see our affordable rates, go here. To place a classified ad, go here.

2. Sponsored Posts
Tell your story. We’ll blurb it and inject it into the ArtsJournal newsfeed with a link to your site or story. Your ad will appear on the AJ website and in all our newsletters and social media feeds. This might just be our highest-visibility positioning. We accept only one sponsored post per day. They are clearly marked as sponsored content.
