A Journey through NYC religions lends its BILLBOARD space for free to any faith-based group.
Your BILLBOARDS will help guide thousands of people on their spiritual journeys. Journey has had over 37 million viewers since July 2010. Each day, our features are seen by tens of thousands of people. Our viewers are the general public, tend to be younger, and live in the United States, though our features on nationalities in New York City usually pick up viewers from the home country.
However, we have some requirements.*
The BILLBOARDS must be fitted into a jpeg that measures 4" height and 6" wide or 460px height by 700 px wide. The jpeg size should be between 240-280k. Or a png file may be provided as long as it is the same dimensions. Video must meet Youtube or Vimeo requirements.
You must send us your BILLBOARD by one week before we place your BILLBOARD on our website.
Bear in mind that over half of our viewers come through mobile phones. The best practice for BILLBOARDS on our journey is to lead with a photo, use minimal amount of interesting text, and a link for registration at events or to your website.
Where do we place the BILLBOARDS?
On Tuesdays BILLBOARDS will be our main feature. This placement will particularly help groups wanting to announce their activities for the weekend.
We will also place BILLBOARDS in-line with our feature articles.
How long and how often will we run the BILLBOARD?
Up to three weeks
*The BILLBOARD must be appropriate to Journey's mission and values. A Journey through NYC religions supports the flourishing of faith-based (and non-faith-based) people on the public square, though the publication of a BILLBOARD doesn't indicate our endorsement.
Here is an example of a recent simple BILLBOARD that was provided to us:
We offer some services for a fee to cover the basic costs of labor.
Our designers are some of the best in the world. This summer, one of our designers won one of the highest international awards for design. Our videos regularly place high in awards contests. Our designers have agreed to help the faith community at very low rates.
*Design of print or photo BILLBOARD. $75 - $375
*Design of video BILLBOARD. $200 - $1200
*Story-telling BILLBOARD. $300-3500
