At August Publications, we’re passionate about sports. And so are our readers: more than half of them are in decision-making positions when it comes to purchasing. Whether it’s the baseball team owner signing off on a new scoreboard, an arena manager shopping for new seating, or the university athletic director planning a new level of suites in the football stadium, our readers trust August Publications for help on a daily basis.
Since 2003 August Publications has been a leading source of information on the Internet for sports professionals. Overall, 800,000 Internet users visited August Publications sports websites in 2007, but our emphasis isn’t on raw numbers: it’s on providing targeted editorial content to a highly desirable segment of decision-makers in the sports and facility-management fields. We believe a combination of advertising on our network of websites, newsletters, and multimedia can be an effective marketing tool for your firm.
We have a proven track record in matching advertisers to the right decision-makers, thanks to our strong partnerships in the sports world. The two inaugural advertisers on Ballpark Digest, Populous and ResnickAmsterdamLeshner, are still with us on a daily basis four years later. Our renewal rate on multi-month ad buys is over 90 percent. We take our partnerships seriously.
