Be our sponsor

Sponsor what we do for as little as £60 a month

We are looking to work with great local brands to support what we do. In return, we can give you access to one of the best digital audiences in Glasgow. And by that we mean one of the most targeted (on the West End area of the city) and one of the most engaged (just look at how are our social media gets liked and shared).

When you become a sponsor, you will get a presence on our website and on our social media channels. You will also get access to our audience through content that you create and that we present and then publish.

Packages or Issues cost from the equivalent of just £60 per month* - and can be taken out over two months (one Issue) or up to six months (three Issues).

As a sponsor, you get:

We are limiting the number of local sponsors we work with on any one Issue to no more than five in the first instance, so that we can offer the best level of service to each brand’s needs. The prices are as follows:


About our website

Unusually, we were a website first. Set up in 2016, the site has evolved from a licensed platform owned by a small start-up company in north-west England, to a wholly-owned Glasgow operation. After a buy-out in December 2021, the site is owned and edited by freelance journalist and former Herald news editor Ian Marland. A fully-trained journalist of nearly 30 years experience, Ian has worked across media in Scotland, including Press Association, The Scotsman, The Times, BBC Scotland and STV. His website www.glasgowwestendtoday.scot has more than 100,000 unique views each year.


About our social media channels

We use our social media channels to drive followers to our website where they see our words about you and your adverts. We also use our social audience to share a digital version of our magazine, published on the Issuu platform. As of July 2022, we had 52,000 followers across Twitter, Mastodon, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, TikTok and e-subscribers. We think that is the largest audience targeted solely on the West End of Glasgow. It is also one of the most engaged. Because people follow us for positive, original content about only the West End, our engagement rate is higher than many of the bigger platforms when it comes to local content. That’s why it pays to advertise with us.


About digital-only promotions

This service is still available, but only when resources allow. We also know through experience that only certain campaigns work effectively online. If you think you have a story that would engage a digital audience, do not hesitate to get in touch. We will be happy to advise you on a package of promotion that will work for you and offer a fair quote. Prices start from £150 for a promoted post and social media campaign over 48-hours, and go up to £250 for a four-day campaign. Both packages include paid boosts of £15 and £30 respectively.
