Paid Editorials and Advertorials

Looking for a worthwhile, effective alternative that makes your budget go far? Then buy an editorial. As a hybrid of editorial and advertising content, advertorials can deliver exceptional results due to the content and longevity online. They have the appearance of an editorial piece. You can use advertorials to showcase a new business, new products or services, or to enhance an existing campaign. We will make sure your post is well-written and optimised for search engines. We’ll include your Twitter and Facebook links, too.  Cost: Just £60 for permanent placement.

With click-through rates for online display adverts falling dramatically in the last five years, we recommend your first choice be an advertorial.  We will write it for you based on information you supply. Here are some examples of paid editorials on

Mobile Advertising

In 2011, more than 40% of money spent on accessing the Internet was spent on mobile devices in the UK. In fact, Smartphones are driving spending on the internet, with some consumers deciding that their mobiles will provide everything they need and therefore they do not use laptops or desktops any more. By 2016, it is estimated that 46% of global spending on internet access will be on mobiles (souce: The Telegraph).
