SGV Up Close Media Kit

SGV Up Close 2015 Media Kit

SGV Up Close serves the San Gabriel Valley area with a goal of establishing itself as a leader in online local news. What makes us different and stand out from the news crowd is our emphasis on video news. Print is great, but nothing engages and impacts audiences like the visual power of video. We’re excited about our innovative news platform and fully understand how important your businesses and organizations are to us. We look forward to serving and establishing great relationships with the local businesses that help make SGV Up Close a success!

Best regards,

Dominic Sanchez

Now is a great time to be part of SGV Up Close. As a fresh news platform specifically geared and focused on the San Gabriel Valley area, our growth is expected to be phenomenal. This presents local advertisers an incredible opportunity to come in on the ground floor and lock in pre-CPM (cost per thousands) rates. We are committed to going above and beyond for those businesses and organizations that come on board as advertisers or sponsors. We’re projecting rapid traffic growth which means the rates below are subject to change.

Quick Facts:

  • Our website is based on a responsive layout which provides an optimal viewing experience on any platform including desktops, laptops, & mobile devices (Tablets and smartphones).
  • Social Media is an important marketing component for SGV Up Close and we will use our social influence to drive traffic to our advertisers/sponsors.
  • Our advertisers/sponsors will get priority on any new advertising/marketing strategy we add to our media kit (site takeovers, landing page campaigns, video ads, social media add-ons, email blasts, etc.)
