tabloid newspaper front pageTo help keep the Brixton Blog and the Brixton Bugle as a sustainable community enterprise, we are at present solely funded by advertising sponsorship.

We are here to promote Brixton’s excellence – the talent and imagination of the people of Brixton — its food and drink, its entrepreneurs, its artists and makers, its venues and events. We would also like to hear from service providers helping the Brixton community, whether charities or technicians – mechanics, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, gardeners, healthcare professionals. Tell Brixton you are here. email advertising@brixtonblog.com or call 07973 214648

Advertising rates

Despite substantial increases in our costs, Brixton Media will hold its rates for advertising in the Bugle at pre-pandemic rates for an initial period. We recognise that many advertisers have been seriously hit by lockdowns and increasing costs. This price freeze makes a great bargain of our heavily discounted rates for a series of three advertisements. Please talk to us about how we could extend the impact of a Bugle advertisement through the Brixton Blog and our social media.

Brixton Blog advertising

The Brixton Blog is an indispensable source of up to date, accurate and readable reports about the community, people, issues, arts, sport, business and more in Brixton.

The Brixton Blog’s average daily traffic in the week 28 February – 6 March 2022 was
887 page views and
699 unique visits.

The Blog also has a large following in social media:

It has 29,000 Twitter followers

Its Facebook page has
9,674 followers.

Each Brixton Blog post is automatically posted to Twitter and Facebook at the same time as it goes live on the blog – extending the website’s reach across two key social media platforms.

For advertisers who wish to take advantage of this reach, we offer a standard “MPU” advertisement which is 300 pixels wide by 250 pixels deep.

These can appear on every one of the Blog’s 6,500-plus posts, its home page, in specific sections, or a bespoke combination of these locations.

Other sizes and position are also available.

Costs depend on the number of locations and for how long the advertisement is booked.

The average cost is £50 a week for an MPU on the home and selected pages.

We offer all local people and businesses free DIY small classified ads
