THE Bike Shed Times is the best advertising forum available for anyone trying to reach Western Australia’s motorcycling community.
Our content and our marketing ensures the vast majority of our readers belong to one simple demographic: Adult West Australians who love motorbikes. These are the people you need to reach, to grow your business.
And the size of our audience is growing, strongly. In December 2016, our monthly traffic was 5,473 hits from 1,763 people. Our latest (August 2017) monthly figures exceeded 15,000 hits from 6,400 people. (Source: WordPress.) In addition, our number of Facebook followers has jumped from less than 700 on January 1 to more than 8,500 on September 1.
We offer five advertising options.
1. Run-of-site advertisements from $150/month
You can place an advertisement so that it appears on every page of our site (like the ads over there to the right) from just $150 a month. Readers see those ads whether they are browsing through our home page, reading a story, or scrolling through all the cool bikes for sale in our popular ‘Bikes For Sale’ section. Your advert is clickable back to your webpage, if you have one. (Click on one of the ads on the right, to see what we mean.)
2. Display advertisements in ‘Bikes For Sale’ for $100/month
You can now place a small advertisement so that it appears alongside the text on our ‘Bikes For Sale’ page, for $100 a month. Click here to see what we mean. Your advert is clickable back to your webpage, if you have one. ‘Bikes For Sale’ had more than 2,900 visits in July, making it our most popular section.
3. Large end-of-story advertisements for $80/month
You can place a large advertisement so it appears at the end of a recent story for $80 a month. Take a look at Ace Scooters’ advert at the end of the SWM Gran Milano story here to see what we mean. The $80 price applies to our recent stories; older stories are $50 a month, and a new story is $100 (for the first month only). Your advert is clickable back to your webpage, if you have one.
4. In-story advertisements for $30/month
You can place a small advertisement so that it appears within a recent story for $30 a month. The $30 price applies to our ten most recent stories; older stories are $20 a month. Take a look at some sample $20 adverts in our Mario Poggioli story here to see what we mean. Your advert is clickable back to your webpage, if you have one.
5. Classified advertisements $12 for 8 weeks
If you have a ‘special’ bike to sell, and by that we mean something rare, classic, exotic, or just plain gorgeous, you can take out a listing on our ‘Bikes For Sale’ page. A listing costs just $12 for 8 weeks. Yep, even if you’re a shop. (But the bike must be special, as judged by us.) More details here.
