How to advertise on the Quietus: The Quietus , March 13th, 2013 11:57

tQ is funded entirely by advertising and our membership system

The Quietus is largely funded by advertising, with no corporate backers, investors or other means of support.

We rely on advertising to survive, but also know that in times of constrained budgets our clients want to reach as many people as possible and at the lowest rate. We are therefore able to offer advertising rates that fit within your budgets and needs, and are able, through our OpenX ad server, to target your advertising by country and city. Regular and repeat bookings, multi-country bookings, and multi-format bookings can all be given preferential and discounted rates. We're also open to sponsorship opportunities for events, gigs, festivals and video content, but must stress that any associated content will be marked as sponsored.

Clients who have advertised with tQ include: Sold Out, CMS, Seven Stars, Beggars Group, All Tomorrow's Parties, Eat Your Own Ears, Throbbing Gristle, Village Underground, The Barbican, Bird On The Wire, By:Larm, Constellation, Daptone, Domino, Efterklang, Fabric, Corsica Studios, Field Day, Fire Records, Incubate, K7, Kompakt, Merge, Mute, Ninja Tune, Qu Junktions, Playground, Rock Action Records, Rocket Recordings, Roskilde, Roundhouse Camden, Secretly Canadian, Soho Theatre, South Bank Centre, Soutterain Transmissions, Supersonic Festival and more.

We run standard IAB ad sizes as follows: leaderboard (728x90), MPU (300x250), half page sky (300x600) and a variety of hero (952/970/1000x250) sizes. We do not do reskins as they look appalling with our design, but are able to offer site roadblocks and takeovers – please contact for rates. Banners should be supplied as .gif files. Flash is acceptable, so long as we have a .gif backup as per IAB guidelines.
