There's no better way than AJ. We have 45,000-55,000 readers every day. And over the course of a typical month, we reach 250,000 unique users, serving more than 1 million pages.

Get your message in front of the most discerning, most informed arts audience on the net. Critics, arts journalists, collectors, orchestra managers, arts administrators, artists and arts professionals of every stripe make AJ a daily must-stop. If you want to reach the arts audience, AJ is the place to do it.

Over half our advertising is repeat business from advertisers who have found that AJ delivers the audience they want to reach. No, we don't have fancy readership metrics (yet), but we do deliver a highly-targeted quality audience. If the arts audience is who you're trying to reach, AJ's the place.

Three Ways to Advertise

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.

Placing a classified ad is easy - and it will be seen on the AJ website and in the 100,000 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

Banner Ads
We offer standard 728 X 90 banner ads at the top of the website and two half-banner 234 X 60 positions placed in our main news stream on the front page of the website and all our section pages. These are the most prominent branding opportunities on AJ, and they'll show 60,000 times/week.

We sell ad placement by the week, and these ads are often sold out months in advance. You'll get regular reports showing how many times your ad is shown. To book a banner ad, please send an email to advertising Inquiry


AJBlogAds - NEW
Now we also offer ads on ArtsJournal's blogs. We have 30 blogs, featuring some of the best writers and critics on the arts. On AJBlogs, you pay only for the number of times your ad is shown. The rate is $5 for every 1000 times your ad is seen. Higher-traffic blogs will deliver that in less than a day. On lower-trafficked blogs, your ad might stay up for a week or two for that $5.

But each of our blogs appeals to very specific audiences, so the value for your ad dollar is the same. And when your ad runs, you'll get reports on how many times it has been shown. To see more about advertising on AJBlogs go here
