Advertising With Blues Blast Magazine

Why advertise with us?

BLUES BLAST MAGAZINE ADVERTISING - Blues Blast Magazine is the #1 internet Blues magazine! More than 22,000 Blues fans, artists, societies, festival promoters, DJs, record companies and other Blues industry people read Blues Blast magazine each week. Our Readers are located in all 50 states and in more than 90 countries.

All back issues of the magazine plus all CD and show reviews are posted on our website. Weekly issues of the magazine are often posted on other Blues blogs. So your ad continues to be viewed as folks read about your blues event or CD in other publications and on our website online.

Our FREE weekly magazine format provides better coverage than any of the major Blues print publications because it gives you more ad impressions faster than other media. You can get four issues in a month versus other media which give you one issue a month or one every other month.

Other magazines cost several time as much for a single ad. Often other magazines claim thousands more subscribers but their total is over the 2 month span of an issue. With Blues Blast Magazine you get 22,000 ad impressions EACH WEEK! (More than 190,000 ad impressions over a two month print magazine issue span.)

BLUES BLAST WEBSITE ADVERTISING - Ads on our website get can be seen by more than 45,000 visitors each month. We get more than 2,000,000 (thatís 2 Million) hits a month. We are truly the most cost effective way to get the Blues word out! All ads on our website are static ads so EVERY visitor sees your ad, unlike other websites which rotate the ads.

Because of this, we have limited ad space so we sell advertising space on a first come, first served basis.
