On ArtsJournal, 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.


ArtsJournal is read by 45,000-50,000 readers a day

We attract 250,000 unique monthly visitors and 700,000 visits monthly. Not a huge audience, but we own our demographic. 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.
