Compete.com Names Marketing Pilgrim as “Valuable Niche Audience” for Advertisers



competeDid you know that if you read Marketing Pilgrim, you are 2.4 times more likely to be an “affluent American” earning over $100,000 a year?

In other words–for the benefit of marketers–buying advertising on Marketing Pilgrim will help you reach a highly valued segment of web users.

Compete.com has just named Marketing Pilgrim as one of the top sites to “Find Affluent Internet Users.” What does that mean?

These sites, although usually under-leveraged by ad networks and underused by media buyers, reach valuable niche audiences and can be efficiently and effectively used by creative brand advertisers to achieve success. Among the top torso websites that accept advertising and whose audience is overrepresented by affluent Americans are:

So, thanks to all our hard working writers, and thanks to all of our highly valued readers. OK, so you may not feel you fall into the category of “affluent” but in our book, you’re each worth a million dollars!

Oh, and yes, we have some ads slots available to anyone interested! ;-)

    that compete article was highly interesting, who knew soo many rich people read internet marketing sites

    its nice to see doshdosh in the list as well

    compete is really providing useful information in several ways and making my job easier, i love the browser toolbar that instantly gives us monthly unique visitors of sites and the user trends / analytical data

    alexa has been completely ousted, now if we can just do the same to President Bush

    Interesting to see WPW on there. I mod there and we get a lot of newbie SEO questions.

    @Jaan – I guess you can be affluent AND naive about SEO. ;-)

    Picking niche is a crucial thing of a blog developing and I think Marketingpilgrim is an example which has passed this step successfully. Keep up the good work.

    If Compete.com says I’m affluent, then who am I to argue. Congrats, Andy, on receiving that recognition.

    Conversely, I’d be interested to hear where you’re supposed to go if you want to find the poorest people on the web. Nobody ever talks about that.

    Oh my god, I didn’t know that I’m affluent. Sorry, but despite this fact, i don’t intend buying your ads space, but i can tell about you people who are searching for your kind of resources.

    Congratulations Andy and the team! This recognition is a serious pat on the back for a job well done. Keep up the good work!

    Andy does this mean if I keep reading here I’m 2.4 times more likely to become an affluent American?

    You know, I do think there’s a direct correlation between my net worth and the amount of Marketing Pilgrim posts I read. I can feel my bank account growing as we speak.

    Congrats on being mentioned as a great place to advertise.

    I thought the bar was set at 250K per the recent presidential campaign. Its good to know 100K is still considered affluent.

    Congrats! I remember this blog when I want to target that segment of the population
