Newsletter Email Ads in Studio Notes
Twice a month, on the 1st and 15th, we send our official newsletter to just over seventeen thousand good emails. Additionally, we send out 2-3 additional mailings to announce release parties and other special events. Want to see your ad on the email announcement going to this audience? This is a great opportunity to reach our audience of seventeen thousand plus subscribers which is growing all the while. Folks who open the email announcement to read about the latest issue of Studio Notes will also see your ad. (Please note that we can't guarantee that members of our audience will always open the email.) Images and text must be suitable for a general audience and PG rated. No excessive nudity. No exceptions. Advertisers agree that images will be sized to fit into our email format. Images may be accompanied by up to 50 words (strict limit) of text including links. Ad space cost - one image, up to 50 words of text, one issue - $25 (New lower price!)
