Advertising

We are opening advertising back up to local artists, venues, concert promoters and other local businesses who wish to advertise to a very niche targeted group.  The main demographic that visits this website is musicians & music fans that are into harder rock & metal music.  Estimated age range of our visitors is from late-teens to middle age with a heavy concentration within 25 to 45 years old.

We try to keep the look of our website very clean and with minimal ads.  There are currently 2 main ad spots on every page of the website including the forum.  There are also 4 small sponsor banner ads at the bottom of every page.

Advertising Package 1 – Featured Article Plus 1 Rotating Main Ad Spot On Each Page
The majority of the featured articles are not paid advertising as our writers pick bands or upcoming events to write articles on (or do 20 Questions interviews with) and we make them a “feature” based on what we think is most important for our viewers to check out at the time.  With that said, you are more than welcome to buy into a feature article if you have a big show coming up that you would like our site to help you promote.  We do not note which articles are paid for so the article will look just like our regular features.  The main reason we offer this is that there may be shows that we do not know of, or is a bit out of our writers normal genre of music that they write about.  This is also offered for national concert tours that come through the NC area (we also may do tradeouts for these type of shows in return for TIX/VIP/BACKSTAGE/INTERVIEWS/etc).

We have seen people say over the last couple years “No One Visits NCScene.com Anymore”…  The following stats speak for themselves honestly.  For the most part over the last 2-3 years (we admit) this site has been stagnant other than the Forum discussion board.  We want to thank all forum members that still participated in keeping NCScene.com alive in some form over the last few years.  We truly think that with the new stuff we have planned for the site that these traffic numbers will only increase over time.
