Sponsorship of hacklido.com is available to those who wish to reach an audience of 10k global readers spending 20k minutes per week on the content. Our readers are primarily infosec enthusiasts across all levels of organizations. We’ve elected to turn to sponsorship rather than traditional ads because it’s a much better experience for all involved.
Positioning Of Sponcership
Sponsorship is typically measured in weekly terms and includes the sponsor’s message in a prominent yet non-obtrusive position at the top of all the pages
The positioning is equally prominent on the smaller screen:
The sponsor message
The sponsor message may be up to 140 characters long and is positioned after the “Sponsored by” text to ensure transparency. The entire message is then hyperlinked to a resource of the sponsor’s choosing. It should be accurate, direct and in keeping with the candid, transparent fashion in which we run the site. The message should also clearly identify who the sponsor behind it is.
The sponsor URL
The URL will be directly linked to the sponsor message and maybe any address of the sponsor’s choosing that is broadly accessible by the audience.
Sponsorship is offered in weekly blocks. It is just $3/Week.
All weekly blocks are available, reach @admiralarjun via telegram or twitter to buy your block.
Can I add a third-party tracker?
One of the goals of sponsorship was to move away from trackers which much of our audience eschews for privacy reasons. So, No.
Can I sponsor individual posts or target specific demographics?
Sponsorship covers every page on hacklido.com and is served to every visitor regardless of their demographic.
Can I add markup to the sponsor message?
Italics is fine, anything else is a discussion to be had around aesthetic continuity and not appearing spammy.
Can I use marquee or blink tags?
Nice try. No.
Goal of the sponsorship
Part of the amount got via sponsoring goes to the writers at hacklido and hacklido team.
