Advertising and Sponsorship Opportunities
The Stratford Sports Scene is the Town of Stratford’s go-to website for sports news and year-round coverage of Bunnell and Stratford high schools, youth and summer sports, the Stratford Brakettes and more. From players competing at the next level, to those just getting started with their athletic careers, we want to be your source of information for the town’s vast and proud sports scene.
Advertising allows your business to achieve three major objectives:
1) Increase sales and profits
2) Encourage new customers
3) Remind existing customers
Benefits of Advertising on The Stratford Sports Scene
Flexibility: You are not buying an ad on StratfordSports.com, you are buying space. We can also use your ad to link to your own website, increasing your own traffic in the process.
Reach people who live in Stratford: Most of our audience lives here, and those loyal to local sports are more likely to be loyal to the businesses who support the local sports scene, as well.
Drive in out-of-town business: While StratfordSports.com is devoted to coverage of the town’s sports scene, our athletes play other teams from out of town whose readers will be coming to our website, as well. Your advertisement will bring these neighboring shoppers to your business.
