Want to Advertise on Megatokyo.com?
Megatokyo.com has two places where you can show your support - a 468x60 banner advertisement at the top of the page or a 234x60 (or smaller) half-banner section in the newsbox area.
Top Banner (468x60 Web Banner)
We base our prices off of impressions, and our banner impressions can be purchased by impressions or by monthly buy. An "impression" is used each time a banner shows at the top of the Megatokyo.com site (please note that this does not include the forums). Our standard CPM (Cost per thousand) is $1.60.
Megatokyo.com currently averages around 150,000 page views and 35,000 unique visitors on comic days, 100,000 page views and 20,000 unique visitors on non-comic days. We serve roughly 3 to 5 million impressions per month, so be aware that impressions can be used up quickly.
Some examples costs for ad campaigns are:
- 50,000 impressions: $80.00 (would last part of a day)
- 100,000 impressions: $160.00 (would last a full day)
- 500,000 impressions: $800.00 (would last around 5 days)
- 1,000,000 impressions: $1600.00 (guaranteed to last an entire month. Megatokyo.com will provide additional impressions as needed to give reasonable exposure on the site for the entire month. This equates to a 'monthly buy,' where 1 million impressions is guaranteed)
Banners must be 468x60, the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s standard size for banner ads, and in JPG, GIF, animated GIF, PNG or Flash SWF format (no sound please). Ad content subject to review - we reserve the right to not run advertising we feel is inappropriate for our audience. We also ask that, in consideration for our low-bandwidth readers, that file sizes be kept below 40KB, but this size can be flexible at our discretion. We even have an easy-to-use banner administration system for these banners that you can use or we can manage your advertising campaign for you.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a media kit with more information.
Newsbox Sponsorship Half-banner ads
We also offer space to show your support in the "newsbox", directly above Piro's rant section and below the comic itself:
The newsbox area is a static area, meaning that your banner shows in that area for an entire week. This differs from TextAds such as the ones on Google or Blogger, which are geared towards search results or randomly selected. Our prices for this area are as follows:
- 1 full week, Sunday to Saturday, Newsbox Sponsorship Ad: $200.00
The maximum number of ads per month per advertiser is two (2) weeks per month.
Again, if you have any questions or would like to get started, please contact email@example.com.
What else do I need to know?
Payment for all megatokyo advertising is to be made via paypal, and must be made prior to the running of your ad, unless other arrangements are made.
We host all banners and text off of our servers - it makes it faster and more secure.
As Megatokyo.com is a family site, no hentai or pornographic banners will be accepted, nor banners that are solely aimed at generating traffic for such a site that provides material primarily in the prurient interest. We also retain the right of approval on any advertising - so please, keep it clean, and it works out for everyone.
