An Awesome Title
Why Advertise on "Making a Scene"?

The idea of purchasing an ad on a website is to expand your market to new fans and customers. So, why would you advertise in a single genre based website?

So, WHY would you only advertise on a single Genre Website? 

For example, If you are Blues Advertiser, your goal should be to expand your market for the blues, not just advertise to the Same Market!  Making a Scene has STRONG Blues content that is well respected in the blues community, but we reach a much broader fanbase which gives you the opportunity to expand yours!
