As a policy, we don’t run independent banner ads on The Alternative. They don’t get the cows home besides being annoying gadflys when all our audience wants to do on our site is engage intelligently with content. If you are looking for meaningful audience attention for your brand and product, we have a basket of options you can look at.

Every month, The Alternative runs tweetchats, google hangouts, contests, webinars, an editorial series, specials for the month besides enduring sections that keeps our audience coming back to us. Our internal engines are geared to give these activities the full throttle – savvy messaging, eye-catching posters, social media engagement, teasers and ads on the site and  online proliferation among digital blogs.

To give you a sense, the last time we ran a one-week contest, we got over 2 lakhs views from our target audience on social media. Associating with content activities around thematic areas provides credibility, the right message, packaging and the right target audience for you as a brand.
