EFFECTIVE CLASSICAL MUSIC ADVERTISING

RUN YOUR CAMPAIGN AT MUSIC & VISION

Since the launch on 1 January 1999, Music & Vision Magazine has been gradually building a reputation for the range and quality of its writing. Our readers, many of them classical music professionals, come from more than ninety different countries, and in particular from North America, the United Kingdom and Germany.

Editor Basil Ramsey (previously editor of The Musical Times and Music and Musicians) and his staff take the magazine and the quality of material published very seriously. We adhere to a strict daily schedule, which includes weekends and all holidays. Articles and features are professionally proofread, and all proofs must also be checked by the writer in question before publication.

The daily addition of new material, the high quality and international nature of feature articles, and our unique policy of illustrating CD and DVD reviews with sound and video extracts, are rapidly building a large, fascinating and valuable resource, and continue to encourage new regular readers. We serve nearly 500,000 pages per month to over 30,000 readers, and the total number of pages served since launch has reached 24 million (and over 53 million 'requests' or 'hits').

Music & Vision won second place in Chamber Music America's February 2000 survey of the world's fifty best classical music websites. When the same magazine revisited the online classical music scene in 2003, this time featuring only a handful of sites, Music & Vision held its place.

Relevant on-page advertising achieves 'click-through' ratios of up to 2.1 percent.

Various kinds of advertising are available, as described in the sections below:

           Home page graphics      
  Page headers
