HonestGamers reaches an audience of mature gamers. In recent years, the "gamer" label has become almost meaningless as a descriptor, since it can refer to anyone from the 2-year-old sitting on Dad's lap and just barely holding a controller, up to and beyond the 90-year-old grandmother playing a match-3 puzzle game on her phone. So, who reads our site? Members of our audience frequently:
HonestGamers features four types of content:
For our core content (excluding blog posts), we focus exclusively on games while ignoring topics favored by some of our competition, such as celebrity gossip and movie reviews. This focus allows us to dive deeper into industry coverage that is less commonly offered elsewhere but which is still of interest to the gamer demographic. We also encourage and reward reader contributions, which allows our community to remain intimate and engaged.
HonestGamers site traffic is not substantial, but until now, neither has been its funding. Despite operating for less than $80 per month, which just barely covers hosting and related costs, the site has built a monthly audience that dwarfs the audience maintained by many sites restricted to a similar budget. The figures for site traffic in August of 2018 are as follows:
Site sponsorship is currently available for $1,200 per month, with a six-month minimum. For 10 to 12 months, the monthly cost would be $1100. Payment is required up front, to pay one dedicated team member to produce as much quality content for the site as is possible within the applicable period. Your sponsorship qualifies you for the following benefits:
* User-created blogs feature only an ad at the bottom of each page.
** Optional sponsored news articles, if desired, will be clearly marked as sponsored content.
The costs outlined above may seem substantial at a glance, but they represent a significant opportunity for the right sponsor. We hope you are that sponsor.
Creating and maintaining a web site to reach this particular demographic is a costly, time-consuming endeavor. By sponsoring content on the existing HonestGamers site, you will secure quality exposure at a cost of less than $15 per high-quality article produced. Because the content adds long-lasting value so we can ensure we're able to survive and thrive in years to follow, it is in our best interests to work hard in exchange for your sponsorthip. The likely and intended result is that you will see several hundred quality articles go live during your sponsorship period, ensuring your brand, product or service is visible to the precise audience you're attempting to reach.
