Thank you for your interest in supporting AgAuNEWS. As I write this we’ve just passed eight years old, and we’ve built up a fine reputation with both producers and collectors, widely trusted with exclusives and with a uniquely visual style that makes it a fine place to see modern coins at their best. We concentrate on modern precious metal, with the occasional foray into rounds and base metal where there is sufficient crossover interest, but we do avoid aftermarket modified bullion coins for various reasons.
We offer just a single advertising package, and we believe it’s a good one. Rather than just a single spot, our layout is very dynamic. There’s a combination of fixed spots and randomised cycling that we’ve outlined below, all for a single price. That’s right, you get the NEWS page, the WHERE TO BUY (or homepage mint bar), and the article randomised placement, all for the one price. It’s based around a nicely sized (300 x 150 pixel) ad, the design of which you would be free to change every month if you wish (optional, of course). We have a small .PSD template you can use for your design, or we’re more than happy to do one for you with the appropriate source material. Either way, it’s very simple. We even do a Duo package as we have at least three advertisers that run two separate ads, and the second ad is heavily discounted.
It’s always a difficult balance not to overdo advertising and alienate readers, and we think we have the balance about right. We don’t do Google Ads or similar, with every one on our site from the industry including some very big names, so you’ll be in fine company. We believe the system we use is resilient to some ad blockers, and that the randomised nature of most placements prevents ‘viewer fatigue’ where familiar placements are ‘tuned-out’ of the reader’s attention.
We do have to say, however, that an ad is just that and that alone. We are fiercely independent, and being an advertiser confirms no special rights regarding coverage of product or editorial influence in any way. We always make an extra effort, of course, but the opinions in articles are our own and not open for change except where there are errors, something we always appreciate help spotting. Our integrity is everything, and we hope you wouldn’t want it any other way. Feel free to read through and see if it is for you. There’s a contact form at the bottom if you would like any further information.
