Need to reach people in MPLS + STPL? Advertise with DISPATCH! Go ahead and send us an email and we can answer and questions you may have!

ADVERTISE WITH US!

We currently sell our advertising by the day for our newsletter placement, and you can get the website banners included, too. We don’t list a rate card because we’re flexible on our ad buys and sponsorship packages, and can work with advertisers’ budgets.

We also have some very, very limited spots for our print edition, let us know if that’s something you’re interested in.

Recent advertisers and sponsors have included First Avenue, The Walker Art Center, The Dakota, Minnesota Music Coalition, MPLSart, Wiesman Art Museum, and many more!

About DISPATCH

Since 2008, Secrets of the City delivered Arts & Culture information to dedicated MPLS + STPL readers. An off-shoot of The Rake Magazine, Secrets went through many different iterations and is now DISPATCH, an Arts & Culture digest that includes a relaunched website and limited print edition alongside the long-running newsletter.

Readers receive events—music, art openings, book readings, beer release, and much more—at small and under-covered venues around town, tips on upcoming happenings, tips and tricks for navigating the cities, and other lifestyle information.

About Our Reach

We currently land in over a 1,600 inboxes a day! Our primary newsletter list has around 5,000 subscribers on our daily newsletter and we’re around a 25-35% open rate, which is 10-20% higher than the industry average. We even reach 2,500 readers more than once a week! We’re also quite active on Twitter (10,400+) and at times Facebook + Instagram. We also have over 4,000 active website users per month, nearly all of whom are in MPLS + STPL.

About Our Readers

The vast majority of our readers live in MPLS and STPL proper. They use mobile devices as much as they do desktop computers, and they get their info from us from email and social media.

Rates

We want advertisers who are a good fit, so we’re often flexible on our rates. And we especially like it when you book out more than one day. We can get you into our newsletter and social—we sell placements by the day—for as low as $85 a day!

What We Need From You

At least two days before your first ad runs, we’ll need:

  • An image 600 pixels wide and 250 pixels high
  • Between 100-175 words of copy
  • Any custom links that you’d like us to use

We can send examples to you if you need them!

Payment

We’ll send you an invoice for your ads before the first run date. We then require electronic payment within 1-2 days of the first ad running. Since we use PayPal, we accept most major cards. And because it’s electronic payments, you can also pay per ad or for the entire run, it’s up to you! We’ll also send you a proof of performance after each ad run.
