Advertise Your Business with YGKEvents.com

I’ve been doing internet marketing for a living since 1996, and I have applied all of the social media and search engine strategies to YGKEvents.com. I’ve made this website one of the most followed and most visited Kingston websites there is, and now I’m able to promote your business to the demographics you seek, at a very low cost.

YGKEvents.com reaches over 70,000 people on an annual basis and has over 30,000 social media followers. We outrank actual event listings and businesses/venues due to our strong search optimization.

I know how hard it is to promote your business in this day and age. Social Media Marketing. Search Engine Optimization. Digital Marketing. Influencers. Instagram stories. It can be overwhelming.

I’ve spent the last few years on YGK Events really getting to understand the Kingston audience. Figuring out what they’re most interested in, what gets a reaction, and testing out various ad spots on the site to see what works and what doesn’t.

I’ll be able to drive both Kingstonians and tourists to your business all year round.

Whether you want to offer a special deal, a coupon code, or just want to increase the awareness of your business.

Think of the amount of new customers you are going to reach when advertisements like this are sent to our 30,000+ social media followers:

Our YGK Social Media Shoutout Package for businesses offers incredible value. Here is what you get:

Advertising Rates:

There are two packages on offer. The first is all of the above on a month by month contract with a minimum of three month commitment. The cost of this is just $150+HST per month.

I’m also offering an annual contract and this is one I much prefer as it works better for both of us as it offers more long term benefits including long term search engine benefits for your business. If you subscribe to the annual contract, you get two months free. So it is just $1200+HST for 12 months, plus a satisfaction guarantee.

And trust me – I’ll make sure you are more than satisfied with the work I put in driving people to your business. I only like to partner with businesses that I want to help be successful and want more people to know about and that’s why I offer the best possible value.

Here are what you get within each advertising package:
