Beyond the free event listing, we can help promote your Event or Business in a myriad of creative ways. Nothing gets your message out to the theater world like working with our StageBuddy team! Banner Ads, eblasts, social marketing through Facebook and Twitter, promoted organic articles… We also subsidize indie theater with super-low rates! Read on!
MIDFLOW banner ads appear throughout the site in the body of articles and the scrolling lists. All devices including mobile phones see these ads. SIDEBAR Banner ads appear on larger devices (desktops, laptops, ipads, etc) on the right-hand portion of every screen. ALL PROMOTIONS APPEAR ON BOTH.
We find these social avenues work best when they have more relevance, linking to an article on StageBuddy (maybe a good review that you got, or an interview, or a promoted article. Or just to your StageBuddy show/calendar listing). We write copy to excite the user to click!
Stagebuddy sends out email newsletters to thousands of members. We offer contests, links to articles and promotions on a regular basis to excite our fans.
When you get promoted through our Facebook and Twitter accounts, it’s like a stamp of approval.
A promoted article is the best kind of advertising. Not only is it found by all users of the site, but also creates amazing SEO and google reach. Plus, all other forms of advertising can link to your article, which creates relevance and resonance. It’s terrific ‘organic’ marketing. – Oh, and it lives on and on – not just for a week.
HOW IT WORKS: Usually we send you a list of questions, which you send back answers to, which creates an ‘interview’ article. Alternatively, you can send us a pre-written article of which we must approve. The tone must be journalistic in nature.
All of what a promoted article does, PLUS ON VIDEO! We have professional filmaking staff who help you create your message. From a basic interview/video message, to a full-on sizzle commercial. We can do it for you – AND promote it.
HOW IT WORKS: Give us a call to discuss. We talk about options and how best to approach it so you achieve the proper results.
Since StageBuddy’s mission is to help small theater and businesses, we subsidize the costs of advertising, bringing extremely low costs to you if you qualify. In general, if you are a small business (one-person owned shop) or an Off-Off Broadway show, you qualify. Even short-run larger shows can qualify. Just get in touch to discuss.

Banner ads should be given as either JPG or PNG files and should be as small as possible. Most are under 30 kilobytes (we haves ads running at 7k). We might reject larger sizes, especially if they start going over 80k.
300px (wide) X 250px (tall). Smaller height is fine. Taller heights at an extra charge.
MIDFLOW – Large:
These ads are wide and go across the screen. There is great flexibility in what size you can provide.
440-720px (wide) X 60-132px (tall)
MIDFLOW – Small:
This is optional, but if you’d like to optimize sizing for mobile, you can create an ad that works under 440px, otherwise the ‘large’ ad shrinks to fit. This is if you have small type that would get lost when shrunk to mobile size and wish to have an alternate kick in.
320-440px (wide) X 60-132px (tall)
