Main sponsor

Main sponsor

The main sponsor slot appears in a yellow box in the top section of each issue, right below the issue’s introduction.

Choose from one of the three possible formats below. For many more examples, browse the DD archive.

Sponsor slot format A

Format A is a text-only ad that appears in the same look as our app recommendations just below the ad. Great for promoting digital products or services.

  • Main title 2–5 short words (may be edited)
  • Name & URL Name of your product and URL
  • Byline 5–8 words that summarise your product
  • Description The description of your product (320 characters max)

Sponsor slot format B

Format B is similar to format A but includes a square image. Great for promoting digital products or services.

  • Main title 2–5 short words (may be edited)
  • Name & URL Name of your product and URL
  • Byline 5–8 words that summarise your product
  • Description The description of your product (280 characters max)
  • Image A square image (JPG only, 800 by 800 pixels). The image should not contain fine details or text that competes with the text next to it. Simple photos or illustrations work best to get attention.

Sponsor slot format C

Format C has an image with just one block of text next to it. Ideal for agencies, image campaigns, longer announcements etc.

  • Main title 2–5 short words (may be edited)
  • Description The main body text (450 characters max, can contain multiple links and some text in bold/italics)
  • Image A square image (JPG only, 800 by 800 pixels). The image should not contain fine details or text that competes with the text next to it. Simple photos or illustrations work best to get attention.

Many of our sponsors book a classified ad (see below) a few weeks before and after their main sponsor slot to keep the brand top-of-mind with DD readers. To make multiple bookings, get in touch.

Classified ads

Classified Ads

Each issue of DD contains 4 text-based classified ads in the bottom quarter of the newsletter. Classifieds are limited to 180 characters of plain text and only one link. For many more examples, browse the DD archive.

To book multiple classifieds on different dates or to combine a classified with a main sponsor slot, please get in touch.

Performance

In early 2021, Alex Hillman booked two sponsor slots to promote his book Tiny.MBA and shared the results of his campaign online afterwards. He sold over 100 books with an impressive conversion rate of close to 8% (resulting in a four-fold ROI). His second sponsor slot a couple of months later performed similarly, but with an even better conversion rate.

(Every advertising campaign performs differently and these numbers do not represent an expected average performance.)
