Our projected target audience is a largely male-oriented base between the ages of 24 and 40, with segments of female audience throughout, usually 30+ years, with strong blue and white collar backgrounds whom tend to lean right on a mainstream political spectrum and whom focus on government and political issues, as well as relevant issues pertaining to self-reliance living.
We request local businesses wishing to reach a broader audience targeted toward freedom minded/libertarian readers. We love any local business, but we would also like to gear our advertising toward the target audience. Please consider us no matter, but we like ads promoting the following:
Freedom-oriented and alternative news websites, books
Guns and Accessories, Hunting, Conceal Carry Courses, Tactical Training
Water purification products
Long-term food storage
Solar products or services
Relocation real estate or services
Any local, regional, or national business is welcome!!! Contact us today!
You can provide us with a ready made graphic to use as an advertisement on The Muddy Otter website or you may consult with us on in house graphic design with words/photos or graphics of your choice. Your provided or chosen graphic will then be placed in the correct ad space you’ve rented.
Traffic Estimates/Our Visibility
The Muddy Otter is hoping to reach a broad local and regional audience, with at least 500 unique visitors (likely recurring day to day) per day, through local advertising efforts by us through competing newspapers or online sites (i.e., The Marietta Times, The Parkersburg News-Sentinel & TheNewsCenter.tv), as well as word-of-mouth, external social media referrals (ping-backs), ads in The Bulletin Board Classified Ad paper, and possible posters placed in a locally targeted area.
The Muddy Otter currently has no metrics to explain. All numbers are estimates. Coming Soon.
The nearest local news competitor is the Marietta Times (mariettatimes.com) which, according to metrics provided by SimilarWeb, count approximately 1,600 visits per day (unique is not specified), with over 53,000 visits in July 2016.
TheNewsCenter.tv, the premier television web portal for the Mid-Ohio Valley sees nearly 8,000 visitors per day (unique is not specified), and over 245,000 visitors per month (July 2016, SimilarWeb)
With any luck, The Muddy Otter hopes to achieve at least half (5-700/visitors/day) of the traffic and visibility of the Marietta Times within a short time through initial campaigning and occasional ad buying elsewhere. Through visibility at the Times and The News Center, as well as others, we hope to expand our reach to directly compete in daily/monthly traffic with the Marietta Times.
We currently accept payment for ad space through Payza or cash. Payment terms upon sale.
Web Mail Campaigning
The Muddy Otter is using MailChimp to provide direct email campaigns and news alerts to subscribers through a main page pop-up advertisement and subscriber page, free of charge. We sell no outside advertising space in our emails at this time.
Coming Soon! An opportunity to sell products online to help fund the magazine.
We will be accepting donations from readers and others through Payza in which we can accept physical and cryptocurrency.
