Reach More Potential Customers for Less Money
The Baja California peninsula is home to more than 600,000 North Americans and is visited annually by millions people from around the world. Tijuana is one of the busiest borders in the world and in 2014 Los Cabos became the #1 tourist destination in Mexico. The BajaInsider provides an effective media outlet for your company to connect with people interested in living or traveling the Baja peninsula or Mexico.
The BajaInsider is not just a website, but an electronic magazine with worldwide distribution of authoritative information concerning culture, lifestyles, business, geography, activities and adventures of the Baja California Peninsula.
Our unique mix of informational articles and content advertising entertains, educates and sells. Posting new stories weekly, daily incorporation of social media, road reports, weather forecasts, and a Tropical Watch during hurricane season generates additional traffic and a wide range of top Search Engine results we’ve developed over the last 12 years.
The BajaInsider is created here in Baja, and as such we provide a clear and undistorted view of what living, traveling and doing business in Baja is really all about.
Since beginning in 2003 we have followed the adage that first hand information is the best, and you will find a large number of our articles have been submitted by our readers. We also encourage our Sponsors to provide their unique perspective (which we publish for free) on living and traveling on the Baja peninsula, along with their advertising message. Our content includes timeless information along with breaking events and current information.
Adventures & Activities:
For both travelers and residents we provide the Road Reports, Weather Information and Tropical Watch Updates during hurricane season. No other publication, print or online, provides the scope and freshness of content..
For over 12 years we’ve provided our Sponsors the ability to connect with potential customers beyond the bounds of print media. With more than 115,000 unique visitors per month BajaInsider including social media sites, with a confidence rating by our readers of an astounding 96%, two numbers that any print publication in Baja would dream of attaining. Our readers visit an average of 5 pages each visit, so they may come looking for information on whale sharks and end up purchasing a vacation activity, a business service or real estate from our Sponsors.
Old fashion print publications can provide the number of issues printed or circulated but they never can tell you how many or what pages have been read. The BajaInsider provides our Sponsors with a precise number of how many visitors we enjoy, how many have read their Sponsored page and how many move forward to make contact through phone call email or website.
Our Insider Updates are a potent tool for our Sponsors, putting leaders to their Sponsored information, new stories and tropical weather alerts in the inbox of almost 10,000 subscribers. BajaInsider Updates deliver far better results than a direct email campaign, with more than 80% open rate – That is FOUR TIMES industry standards for travel or lifestyle direct email. Our email list is an active double opt-in list, purged of dead addresses, sent to readers who anxiously await the next edition to arrive. We respect the privacy of our subscribers and do not sell or trade our list as it is only accessible through our Insider Updates to Content Advertising Sponsors.
How it Works
BajaInsider is an informational advertising platform for business seeking to expand their reach those with the special interests of living and traveling Baja. Whether your product is in Baja or would be useful to folks who have an interest in living or traveling in Baja, we can help you to reach them. In many cases, the BajaInsider's site weight and ranking can get your message recognized by the search engines faster and rank higher than your own site. A majority of our Sponsors begin receiving results in the first 48hrs and a link from our site to yours can improve your site's search engine ranking.
Our most effective weapon is our Content Advertising which provides you space and flexibility to tell the whole story of your business, with up to 1000 words, photos, and video.
Each Sponsored article contains a direct link to your site, phone listings, and an email address. When a potential customer clicks through to your site they are more informed and pre-qualified for you to close the sale, delivering results that a few words in a pay-per-click ad cannot.
We encourage our Sponsors to make a soft sell, demonstrating the experience unique to their product or service. This technique draws the reader in to read the entire article so when they clicking through; they are "Fish-on!"
Our Sponsors are encouraged to submit non-advertorial content as well that we publish for free with links to their site that provide an additional way to qualify the Sponsor and educate or entertain potential clients.
Banner advertising is included in Content Advertising packages, and our clients receive about 10,000 ad views per month. Banner advertising is also available separately to Sponsors with a more limited budget or those looking to establish branding. Our Content Advertising clients receive 10%-17% of their BajaInsider referred site traffic from banner advertising.
Banner ad sizes
Content Ads are featured in rotation on our front page and new articles will appear in our BajaInsider Updates at least 3 times in 90 days. Getting results for our Sponsors is our focus, and if it is determined your campaign is not getting the kind of response we hoped for, we can adjust the volume, change content, banners, and frequency in the BajaInsider Updates. Something print publications just can't do.
