Greetings and thank you for sending us your music!
The Alternate Root really likes your music and deems it worthy of a review and our support on The Alternate Root website. Our new website is a visual potpourri and listening station for visitors to hang out and discover new music and artists, such as yours.
With every review, each artist has their own unique page, with beautiful layered graphics, art work, a specially designed music player, links to artist’s website, links to purchase, and of course the review itself. The page has it’s own unique URL web address, which makes it easy to share on social media.
We go above and beyond to support and help expose artists and their music with our website. We ask you to consider supporting us and yourself by placing an ad with us. Keep in mind, we liked your music enough to want to showcase it and review it, so you are in no way obligated to place an ad, but know that it helps support yours and our efforts in getting your music ‘’out there.”
Advertising on the Alt Root means reaching real, active music lovers and industry professionals. Our new site is already reaching over 120,000 page views for music lovers each month, and growing at an amazing pace. Our Weekly Newsletter goes out to over 10,000 music lovers.
Our ads and banners live in visually gorgeous sections as opposed to the archaic and less visibly interesting conventional side bar ads on those ‘’blog type’’ websites. On The Alt Root site, your ad is seen as part of the musical fabric of the site, not some sidebar after thought.
SELECT ONE OF THE FOLLOWING AD OPTIONS:
OUR BANNERS: We do not put a tiny, flashing ‘’banner” at the top of the home page. Instead we choose, as stated above, to make our banners part of the fabric of the site. Each banner receives it’s own color coordinated section on the homepage, in glorious wide screen. Each banner is interactive and can be linked to where ever you want or need it to. The banner will also link to the artist/review page.
TOP/EXCLUSIVE FEATURE BANNER SECTION: $750.00 WITH 1 WEEK RUN TIME. Image size can be up to a HUGE 980x300 size!
MIDDLE BANNER SECTION: $1000.00 WITH 6 WEEKS RUN TIME. Image size: 900x100
LOWER BANNER SECTION: 700.00 WITH 6 WEEKS RUN TIME. Image size: 900x100
ARTIST SUPPORT: We have given an entire section on the home page to square ads. We believe, thru research and our own surveys, the conventional side bar ads are too easily ignored in 2017. Again, we give these ads their own “Artist Support” section for visitors to see and interact with. Each ad links to the artist’s website, and if there is a review/artist page will link to that page. The Artist Support Section is visible on every Alternate Root Head/Tab Page, including the Home Page.
ARTIST SUPPORT AD: $400.00 WITH SIX WEEKS RUN TIME Artist Support Ad Size is 300x300 square
FOOTER ADS: These ads are visible on every single page of the website FOOTER AD: $500.00 WITH 6 WEEK RUN TIME
Footer Ad Size is 300x300 square
In selecting one of these ads, you have an option of running that ad on our 10,000 reader weekly eBlast for an additional fee of $150.00 per occurrence.
Tell me the option you'd like and provide me the email address attached to your PayPal account. I will bill you and if you pay the invoice on receipt, I will extend your run time to 8 weeks rather than 6 weeks.
After paying the invoice, send your ad for me to post. If you do not have an ad ready to go, I can create one for you for an additional $125.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have
