With a heavy focus on original, quality content, Project Spurs provides you the opportunity to align your business with a trusted source while reaching a specialized, targeted audience.
Whereas advertising in monthly magazines gives you the opportunity to catch a reader’s attention maybe once per month, or even in a newspaper where your ad will be seen once per day, our site brings in returning readers several times throughout the day.
We have minimal ad placements and low ad rotation limits so our advertising partners our featured prominently.
