The Student Art Guide is a leading high school art education website, providing original, content-rich articles and resources to help students excel. Our content is written by experienced teachers. Advertising on our website is a great way to reach an engaged, young adult audience in a brand-safe environment.
Content created by the Student Art Guide is recommended by Cambridge International Examinations for IGCSE and A Level Art and Design students; mentioned within the provisional OCR GCSE Delivery Guide: Drawing for Different Purposes and Means, where it is given as learning references for line drawing and perspective (OCR is part of the Cambridge Assessment Group, which is now Europe’s largest assessment agency and operates in over 150 countries); and included as one of two web sources within the Teachers Manual Grades K-5: A Fine Line: Observation, Discovery and Expression in Drawing, an Artmobile publication funded in part by the US National Endowment for the Arts. Please see the About page on our website for testimonials from teachers and education professionals.
We have 70,000+ Pinterest followers, 17,000+ Facebook followers, with 16,000+ people on our mailing list. Our content is particularly viral on Pinterest, with many of our pages shared hundreds of thousands of times.
The Student Art Guide is growing steadily, with over 3.5 million page views in the last 12 months. Our traffic swells in relation to examination periods around the world, with peaks in January and September, as shown in the graph below. 80% of our traffic is from the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Most visitors are students aged between 15 and 18 and study a subject such as Art, Design or Photography at high school. Many are actively looking for assistance with their courses and help with preparing portfolios for university or college degrees. A large number of Art teachers also visit our website and share our resources with their students.
Most of the advertising on the Student Art Guide is automated, which allows us to focus on content creation and traffic growth. Due to demand, we have recently created a small number of ‘sponsorship’ advertising slots, which appear on selected pieces of content. These ads will appear on a single ‘evergreen’ resource (screenshots showing traffic are provided below). This allows you to place a responsive 728 x 90 banner ad (320 x 50 on mobile), directly after the first paragraph, within a single piece of high-traffic content. Knowing the exact page your ad will appear on offers a huge advantage, as you can create highly relevant, customized banners that directly target the audience of the page, optimizing click through ratio. Directly after the opening paragraph is our highest converting ad zone, as it is within the content stream, minimizing ad blindness.
To purchase these advertising slots, or to view pricing, please scroll to the BuySellAds shopping cart at the bottom of this page. The BuySellAds platform provides access to conversion data and takes care of payment processing. Our advertising rates are calculated using a formula which is based on years of experience running Adsense units in these ad slots.
