Burn Media welcomes advertisers to its high-end, savvy, tech-oriented audience.
Our readership demographic is ideal for advertising that’s relevant to the tech and internet sectors, or in short, early adopters. This will ensure a hit with our users.
Native advertising allows advertisers to present valuable, relevant content in a non-disruptive manner to readers. Our readers are our number one priority and it only makes sense to explore advertising methods that add ‘value’ to the reader’s experience rather than interrupt it.
Burn Media will consider a Native Advertising partnership if the advertiser’s content meets the following criteria:
- The content must be highly relevant
- The brand must be of the highest caliber
- The content must not be promotional or about the brand itself
This way we ensure our readers are getting the experience they are used to and our advertisers are establishing themselves as a voice in the industry rather than just another product.
For more information about our Native Advertising partnerships, please find our proposal here.
