Advertise on Making a Scene
Advertise on Making a Scene
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 that does not look to expand their own reader base?

Making a Scene is an international, multi-genre music website that brings a wide range of readers to our site with our DAILY published content. We make use of all social media platforms to promote our content and actively seek new readers and fans!

CD Reviews, Artist Interviews, Articles on Music Business, Recording Techniques, Op-Ed articles on issue important to the music community and so much more!

Our readership LOVES our content and they not only include the Independent music community but also the fans that love them! 

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!

We reach thousands of Fans, DJs, Musicians, Festivals, Promoters and Record Companies Worldwide.  

The Bottom line is really simple, It's all about impact!  Which is why we are dedicated to working every day to bring traffic to Making a Scene.
