Who will I be reaching?
Blog Preston is read by more than 120,000 Prestonians every month and our audience research shows we have a strong readership in the ABC1 socio-economic groups, who tend to be professionals working or living in Preston and the surrounding area.
As Preston is a buzzing, new and vibrant city we also have a lot of content appealing to a younger audience – meaning our readers tend to be a nice mix between elders interested in their community and youngsters wanting to know what’s happening in their city. These people have money in their pockets and are making purchasing decisions, so ensure you get your business in their eyeline.
Where does the money go to?
Blog Preston is a community interest company, but we do have to maintain some costs – not to mention all the time it takes to run it. You can find out more about how and why the site started here. We see advertising as part of our service, alongside informing local readers we also want local businesses to flourish and have access to our audience.
I don’t want yet another banner advert…
