Advertising on Latvians Online
If you have a product, service or information that you would like to reach a worldwide Latvian audience, then here is how you can quickly and cost effectively use Latvians Online to spread the word. We have an average 80,000 visitors to our site every month (mainly from the United States, Canada, Latvia, the United Kingdom and Australia) and 10,000 subscribers to our monthly Latvians Online Update e-mail newsletter. The majority of our readers are of Latvian origin, but not all. We are often the first port of call for those who are looking to find information on Latvia on the Web. Tourists, journalists, people who have Latvian acquaintances and the average Web surfer with an interest in Latvia are also our audience. Have a look at our reader profile (PDF, 1.4 MB), based on an analysis of 300 respondents who completed our latest survey in May 2006.
We offer various advertising options:
1. Text ads
Text ads appear just below the main menu in the right hand column of our site. Text ads appear throughout our site. Your ad will go into rotation with other ads in this position. The cost is USD 75 per 100 characters for one month or USD 150 per 400 characters for one month. Characters include text, numerals and spaces. We offer considerable discounts for advertising for three months or more. If you would like to include a link to your Web site please send this to us together with the text.
Text ads will also automatically be included in the classifieds section of our monthly Latvians Online Update newsletter. Click here (PDF, 40 KB) for a sample of a Latvians Online Update newsletter.
