Why advertise with Wexford Weekly? 🔥

Are you questioning the wisdom of traditional print advertising to reach an audience, knowing full well that its audience is gradually decreasing by the day? Do you want to reach more people for much better value?

Regardless of the size of your budget or the length of your campaign, Wexford Weekly can cater for all your advertising needs!

Wexford Weekly is Wexford’s number one sports, news, and entertainment website. Exclusively online, we are now consistently attracting over 100,000 website visits each month.

Launched in May 2017 by Gorey native Jason Redmond, Wexford Weekly has quickly established itself as a go-to source for local sports, news, entertainment, and information. Wexford Weekly also has a significant following across social media platforms including Facebook (18.5k followers), Twitter (5.0k followers) and more recently Instagram (1.2k followers).

We are a growing brand; not just a website.

FAQ:

How much for my display/banner ad on your website? 🤔

We offer full transparency for our (1) website display advertisements. These are usually 300 x 250 advertisements that can be viewed within our articles and then clicked on. When clicked on, the user can be redirected to your website, a product, a Facebook page or even a ticket selling page for example.

The above screenshot is an example of a display/banner advertisement. These are our most popular advertisements.

In July 2020, our advertising policy changed in line with some major developments to our website. We are still offering full transparency on the prices of our display advertisements, however, our advertising model has changed to CPM (cost-per-mile)/views-based as opposed to charging a flat monthly fee. The minimum amount of views you must purchase is 10,000 views.

Display Advertising Prices:

€2.50 = CPM (1,000 views)

€25 = (10,000 views)

€70 = (30,000 views)

€135 = (60,000 views)

€250 = (120,000 views)

€480 = (250,000 views)

€900 = (500,000 views)

These display advertisements will be posted within the articles on our newly written content. A third-party app will be used to track views, while the business taking out the advertisement will also be able to log-in at any time and then assess live reports such as advertisement views and ad clicks.


How does display advertising work with your newly-introduced annual subscription plans that restricts some viewers? 🤔

The introduction of paid annual memberships for premium content on our site is the reason we changed our advertising model. The third-party app we are using on our system counts per-views. Your ad may be placed in articles labelled premium content, but a view will only be counted if the reader actually views your ad.


What is a sponsored article? 🤔

Instead of a display advertisement, other businesses may desire more in-depth coverage. A sponsored article, which costs €80, is ideal for this.

We could talk about your business, your products, where to find you, new deals, recruitment etc. This article will be shared, just as we share our other articles, onto our social media channels like Facebook & Twitter. You can decide exactly what’s placed into it and we can send you a private preview link to perfect it before it is published.

Additionally, this sponsored article will be pinned onto our website’s homepage for one full week from the time its published. This means that whenever anyone visits our website’s homepage, your sponsored article will be the first that they will see (Eg. ‘Remake Of Wexford’s 1996 All-Ireland Jersey Sells Out In Minutes’).

The above screenshot is an example of a pinned sponsored post. The article is stuck/pinned to the top of our homepage for one full-week and it is a unique mode of advertising.
