Information for Sponsors

The Kansas Music Review is a progressive online magazine that will be updated with new content in an ongoing issue-less format. Monthly notices will be sent to KMEA members informing them of content changes.

Former “Advertisers” may now become “Sponsors” and with that philosophy change will come opportunities and features not available before in the Review.

A yearly sponsorship is available for a contribution of $400. This figure is $200 less than the $600 per year previous that ads in 4 issues would cost. A monthly sponsorship is available for $50 per month for the months that you would like to have space in the Review. These sponsorships are renewable on the anniversary date (year or month, depending on the type of sponsorship purchased) of the purchase.

As a sponsor of the Review you will have available a display ad image of 300 X 600 pixels and several other new perks that will go with sponsorship.

  1. The ad image mentioned above will be up on the web site until the sponsor wants to change it. It can be changed at any time during the sponsorship term. We hope this will allow the Sponsor to highlight specific events, seasons or sales. Universities will be able to highlight events on their campus, concerts, audition days and any other information they would like to get in front of the reader.
  2. Each Sponsor may have a thumbnail logo that will appear at the bottom of each page of the KMR. These thumbnails can be linked to the sponsor’s primary website.
  3. Each sponsor will have the opportunity to submit up to two articles that can appear on the website simultaneously. Sponsors can replace those articles for another at any time. Articles will be displayed in the same manner as other articles in the KMR and be “tagged” as sponsored articles. These will be found under the Sponsors tab. Sponsors can use these articles to highlight any information they wish, such as sales items, concert programs, clinic schedules, faculty and employee information, etc. These articles can also include links to other websites.

We believe that with the items mentioned above each sponsor will have many more opportunities to be in touch with our readers.

Entities that wish to become sponsors of the Kansas Music Review may do so by contacting us with the contribution at any time.
