Advertise On Michigan Bands

Michigan Bands Ad Placement Map

MichiganBands.com has been promoting local bands, musicians and songwriters since 2001. Over the years, our visitors have increased dramatically with the majority coming from the United State and 60% of those from Michigan. We have a loyal following as well as thousands of new visitors each month. In addition, our articles are syndicated on websites all over the internet. Yahoo currently shows more than 12,000 back-links to MichiganBands.com.

Your Michigan-based ad will run on this site for a specified time for a specified price - period. We don't charge by the impression or for click-throughs to your site which, we believe, have a high potential for fraud.

As a local advertiser your goal should be to get your product or service in front of as many potential customers as possible by achieving a presence in the local electronic marketplace. You know as a business owner that display advertising rarely results in direct sales. But you also know that name recognition and recall by consumers plays a large part in their purchasing decisions once they're ready to spend. We can help you develop that recognition among local music lovers in the state of Michigan.


Before we go any further, here are the ad rates (view the ad placement chart above):

 Business Rates

  • A. Leader Board 728 X 90 - $50.00 for 2 Weeks, $100.00 for 1 month
  • B. Left Side Up 120 X 240 Vertical Banner - $40.00 for 2 Weeks, $75.00 for 1 month
  • C. Right Side Middle 125 X 125 Square Button - $25.00 for 2 Weeks, $50.00 per month
  • D. Bottom Banner 468 X 60 - $50.00 per month

* Bands that have registered with this site can get any of the banner ads above for 1/2 price to promote your band, new CD or whatever.

How it works.

All ads on our site are delivered by our dedicated ad server at Bizdoodle.com. We will set up an advertiser account for you on that server. You will have full control over your ad for the duration of your advertising time slot. You can change your ad if you want or change the link that the ad goes to when clicked. You will also get weekly reports by email that show how your ad is doing so you can make adjustments.

Each ad slot on the site will be limited to 5 advertisers in rotation. If your ad is in rotation this means your ad will be viewed by every 5th visitor. If there are fewer than 5 advertisers then your ad will display more often. If you would rather be the only ad showing in the slot, I'm sure we can work out a deal to suit your needs.

But my business doesn't have anything to do with music.

No worries. Only a percentage of the visitors to our site are musicians & songwriters. Many are just people who like music and want to stay informed about the local music scene. But even the musicians have needs & desires that go beyond the scope of our website. Our typical visitor is male, between the ages of 16 and 40 - a broad market for your product or service

Ok, How do I do this?

Contact us through the link below. Fill out the form and select the space you want (A,B,C or D as above) and the duration. We'll get back to you via e-mail or phone to answer any questions you might have. If you're ready to go (you provide artwork or we can), we'll setup your ad account on Bizdoodle.com and send you the login information and request for payment. You'll have the option of paying by credit card or check through our secure PayPal account. You will not be asked to pay anything or submit payment information until your account is set up and your ad is ready to display on our site. Once payment has been confirmed, we'll take care of the rest.

 Your Ad Dollars Support The Local Music Industry

Your ad dollars will not only provide you a presence in the local electronic marketplace, but will also help promote the local music industry, keeping much needed revenue in-state where it's sorely needed. Michigan has a rich musical heritage that has provided such world-renowned artists as Bob Seger, The MC5, The Frost, Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, Iggy Pop and all the great Motown artists who preceded them. That tradition continues in the 21st century with artists like Eminem, Kid Rock, Uncle Kracker, Sufjan Stevens and The White Stripes.

Who will be the next big thing out of Michigan? That's anybody's guess. Some of our members have gone on to sign major label deals but the music business model is changing radically in the 21st century. Increasingly, bands depend on sites like ours to let the world know they exist. With your help and ours, they might add their name to Michigan's rich musical heritage.

We also know that times are tough for Michigan small businesses, which is one of the reasons we decided to open our site to local advertising at a extremely reasonable rate. We believe we can help each other during these tough economic times and you can be assured that we will do our part, as we have for bands over the last seven years, to promote your local business. We believe in supporting those who support us.

Thank you for considering advertising on Michigan Bands.com and we hope to hear from you.
