Zoo News Digest Advertising

I suggest an advert along the lines of a photograph which will directly link to your webpage. Beneath the photo you can have up to ten lines to say whatever you need to say plus inclusion of another written link to your webpage.

This advert will be included within the body of the Zoo News Digest blog. When the blog is published it is also posted out as an email to subscribers and so will go directly to the in box of thousands. The link to the blog then goes out on the Zoo News Digest Facebook page and a link then automatically goes out to Twitter. This is the maximum possible coverage reaching people who actually work in zoos

Zoo News Digest reaches more people in more zoos worldwide than any other publication.

A permament link to your webpage will remain in the posting.

How much? £40.00 for a one off/one time post. Payment is via PayPal. Postings go out once or twice a week. I would do three inclusions for £100.00 if that was preferable. For an extra £20.00 I will actually make up the advert on your behalf.

More information Zoo News Digest Advertising

Zoo News Digest is the longest established e-zine on the internet. Zoo News Digest has been something of an insider secret spread by word of mouth through the zoo community till today it has thousands of interested weekly readers in 600+ zoos in more than 130 countries. The private membership list reads like a Zoo Who’s Who and numbers Zoo Directors, Curators, Managers, Head Keepers and right down to trainee keepers amongst its readers. There are of course also zoo vets, trainers, enrichment officers, gift shop personnel, docents, nutritionists, information and education officers and more….even some zoo police. Many of these have families too who read the Digest on their home computers. Some zoos have placed the Digest on their intranet systems. It is used as a teaching and discussion instrument on some college Animal Management Courses.

Zoo News Digest readership is far ahead of any other similar publication on the internet and way out in front of the paper terra magazines and journals. In fact the Digest has always gone out of its way to promote and advertise these publications within. There is no competition as the Digest offers a different range of information.

Associated and linked to Zoo News Digest is Zoo Biology whose membership is restricted solely to professional Zoo Staff. This in itself has nearly 2,500 members. Again this has more members than any similar zoo related terrestrial publication. Zoo Biology has given on numerous occasions almost instant help to zoo people around the world as it can call upon a combined multi expertise zoo knowledge base of around 25,000 years!

During the past few months Zoo News Digest has taken on a Blog and a Facebook page which are both rapidly gaining in popularity. All four publications are linking in together and being posted on Twitter too which gives very good coverage and exposure. The Twitter postings are picked up by most world zoos which are listed on this service. Postings on the Blog are being indexed by Google in under a minute. This of course reaches out to a readership outside the world of zoos.

Although I have been employed in Zoos (Commercial, Private and National) as Manager, Curator, Head Keeper and Keeper for forty years these publications have up till recently been my hobby. Now they are a full time job and I seek to widen their coverage even further. I know the zoo internet business inside out having been actively daily involved for around 15 years.

I am now seeking to include advertisers who have goods which would be of value to a zoo readership. If you are interested please, in the first instance contact me for further details:

I feel 100% sure that I can give you greater targeted advertising coverage than you have previously experienced anywhere else in zoos. What is more you will find it extremely affordable.
