Advertising Opportunities at Hallandale Beach Blog
On my blog I inject some much-needed accountability, transparency and original insight onto those particular issues, concentrating most of my local energy, enthusiasm and laser-like attention on issues affecting the citizens of South Florida, especially the cities of Hallandale Beach and Hollywood, while keeping a sharp eye on new developments, issues and trends at government offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tallahassee and Washington D.C. that'll affect my readers, their families and businesses.
Due to a lot of hard work and attention to detail, my blog and its associated Twitter feed, @hbbtruth, have created a successful niche for itself, becoming a very trusted news source in South Florida and elsewhere for information-hungry news consumers, residents and business owners and business groups.
That includes many current/former Elected state, county and municipal officials, numerous members of the South Florida, Florida and national press corps, as well as by academics, attorneys, lobbyists, entrepreneurs, business owners and other professionals, including officials at Non-Profits and Think Tanks.
Because of the interesting background and mix of readers already coming to the blog and Following my Twitter feed, my plan is for it to now offer Consumer, Business-to-Business
Those prominently-displayed ads will help you reach the blog's affluent, highly-educat
Unlike ads placed in many of South Florida's newspaper, TV or lifestyle magazine's websites, your ad will not just be seen, but NOTICED by South Florida's most-informed, engaged and discerning residents, business leaders and politicians, as well as by seasonal residents and out-of-town investors with very strong personal and economic interests in keeping up to-date on what's happening in our slice of Florida.
Those highly-engaged readers are precisely the sort of people that savvy South Florida businesses want to capture as future customers and clients - so why not you and your business?
Over the past ten years, as its reach and influence has expanded, the Hallandale Beach Blog has has developed a reputation for fact-based reporting and fair-minded analysis of the issues that its discerning readers appreciate and value.
Readers who have come to rely upon the fact that the blog's become a very reliable, go-to source of information, facts and perspective, not only for them and other concerned people, but also for Florida's news media, which is why the blog has been cited in their own coverage of Florida's often-combative and combustible nexus of government, politics and public policy.
I connected-the-dots on that relationship, showing precisely who was trying to take advantage of residents trust for their own selfish reasons.
Here's the Florida Bulldog’s story on me and what I discovered:

Hollywood Gazette or the South Florida SunTimes or anywhere else? Platforms that even now you might be considering for your advertising dollars?
Nowhere to be found!
because he knows from experience that more than most people, I really DO know what's
what and who's who, and usually have something original to add to the larger conversation.
In fact, he did that very soon after the news about the Young Circle project,

Your ad at HBB gets your message seen by high-quality, trusted taste-makers and influencers in South Florida and throughout the nation’s third-largest state.
Sophisticated, quality-conscious and keyboard-articulate people whose informed opinions and preferences have a great deal of magnifying power online and on Social Media.
Readers and Twitter Followers who are not just quick to share what they know or think with others via Social Media about news, ideas and points of view, but also share about positive customer/client experiences.
They’re the kind of audience who’ll actively respond to your ad and recommend you to their friends and Followers if you can consistently provide them with a quality product or service with reliable customer service. New customers who become loyal, steadfast customers.
There's a good reason why my blog and growing Twitter feed are read/Followed by so many Florida print & TV reporters, columnists and editors, and by so many Florida municipal and County Commissioners and political candidates, to say nothing of being read and Followed by some of South Florida’s most-popular Social Media personalities and most-read bloggers.
It’s the very same reason that it’s read and Followed by reporters, columnists, editors and publishers at leading Entertainment and Media-centric publications as varied as VARIETY and The New York Observer, as well as by former high-ranking govt. officials at law firms and companies deeply involved in the world of High Tech, Venture Capital and the Startup communities of Silicon Valley, Washington, D.C., Manhattan, London and Stockholm.
Overseas, it counts among its readers and Followers some of the most-popular reporters, columnists, editors and publishers in Sweden, Great Britain and France, including the recent publisher of Sweden's most-popular newspaper, who's now the head of the country's #1 TV network. It also includes the CEO of Sweden’s largest association of Startups, Incubator groups and Science Parks, and a wide range of creative and management people at some of Sweden’s leading advertising agencies, consumer, digital and Venture Capital firms, including some amazing marketing innovators and experts at McDonald's Sweden and SPOTIFY, and at one of Sweden’s most-read online journal for serious social commentary, Dagens Samhalle.
And now, via my blog, you and your business can reach them and tens of thousands of savvy consumers -and more- via an ad for prices starting at just $85 a month
What’s the common thread among all of the blog readers and Twitter Followers, in South Florida and elsewhere?
They value the consistency of interesting, original content I provide that entertains as well as it informs.
That's important because simply printing 40-75,000 copies of a free newspaper in Broward County is NOT the same thing as an ad appearing in it actually being seen by actual readers.
Because my blog is on the Blogger platform owned by Google, my page view numbers are, in fact, Google’s, which is why I was confident in telling you earlier what those numbers for October have been the past three years.
It’s an unfortunate reality for both consumers and advertisers that there are a lot of media sites in South Florida that are NOT “mobile-friendly," and even worse for advertisers, NOT designed to make it easy for consumers to access their content online -and the advertising that’s near it.
The best examples of this are the pdf formats you encounter on the homepages of The Hollywood Gazette and The South Florida Sun-Times.
Have you ever tried to access specific content displayed in a pdf format on your smart phone, quickly? Precisely!
It's very difficult,even if you know what you are doing.
Given a choice, wouldn’t you prefer to advertise at a popular site like Hallandale Beach Blog where ALL users are able to see your unique message, no matter the time of day and regardless of what kind of device they were accessing it on?
It only makes sense!
I’m currently offering FOUR different monthly advertising plans, based on size, but I’m always open to alternatives that work better for your specific needs, so contact me if you have ideas different than these.
To give you a sense of proportion, consider that Tweets currently appearing on my blog in the right and left-hand columns with photos are roughly about 2 & 1/2 inches X 1 & 3/4 inches, or 6 & 1/2 millimeters X 5 millimeters.
For more information on possible sizes and styles,
No endorsement by the company of my blog is intended or to be inferred, they are examples. And in some cases, ads over 900 in width are shrunk to a smaller size so they fit on this particular page and don't bleed onto other content in side columns.
Or, consider this Subaru ad, 300 X 250
These appear directly above ALL new editorial content, at the top of the blog.
For example, for the new development in Hollywood on the Intracoastal on Hallandale Beach Blvd, Hyde Beach House Hollywood, 300 X 600.
Or for Upplands Motor via Volvo Sverige, 500 X 360.
Icelandair Follows me on Twitter and has flies out of MCO, Orlando International Airport to beautiful Iceland and Europe.
Here’s how committed I am to making a deal with you that satisfies both of us: I'm offering all prospective advertisers some price-certainty and time-certainty, and even offering up a sweetener: EXCLUSIVITY.
2.) Any advertiser who agrees to purchase an ad and pay for TWO or more months now -regardless of size- will receive EXCLUSIVITY for their specific advertising category for as long as they continue advertising on the blog.
informed people are going to get the facts behind the issues: Hallandale Beach Blog.
Thanks in advance for your consideration!
