DRUM!, EMN, Announce Video Ad Availability

DRUM! Magazine and its Enter Music Network, the world’s only ad network for drummers, today announced the availability of video pre-roll advertising on selected sites and pages. It is offering video ads on all of Drumchannel.com, on selected videos on Drummagazine.com and on Onlinedrummer.com.

“The addition of video pre-roll gives our advertisers a new arrow in their quiver” said Hood. “We know that media reinforce each other and a campaign in two or three media can be more effective than just one. No media is as powerful as combined media.” This should be especially good for record companies, for product launches, and consumer education.


The network accepts pre-roll ads of ten to fifteen seconds in length in 640 x 360 format (higher resolution recommended) at a starting rate of $250 per month. Bundled deals on Drumchannel offer advertisers the best value for short campaigns, including a video ad, banner ad, and sponsor log placement for three months. Rates and specifications are below. "Advertisers should also take advantage of Drumchannel service offerings," says Hood. They can book time as low as $1500 per day for a product demo shoot, and get footage for an ad, too."


Combine a Drumchannel sponsorship with web banner and video advertising for maximum impact. Rates start at $667 per month and Include a web banner, permanent logo and up to 10,000 video impressions per month. Buy a full year for just $500 per month

  • How often will my ad appear?
    Our server allocates your ad to appear on pages at a rate so that you will receive roughly the same number of page views on each day of your campaign. For instance, if you purchase 150,000 ad impressions, then your ad will be seen approximately 5,000 times per day for thirty days (5000 x 30 = 150,000).
  • Can I run two different ads?
    Yes, you can run up to five ads in a single campaign per month. They can be the same ad in different sizes or they could be two different ads for different products within a single campaign.
  • When can I change my campaign?
    You may substitute new ads into your campaign at any time.
  • Can I target a particular country?
    Yes, we can run your ad to target countries, states, or even cities. Keep in mind that the narrower your target area the fewer ad impressions we will have available.
  • How often will I receive reports?
    We can generate reports on any schedule you prefer, from daily to monthly. Reports will include # of times your ad is viewed, # of clicks, and web site location.
  • Why can’t I see my ad when I visit the site?
    The network has dozens of ads running on nine different sites. So it may be difficult to find your ad when you visit one of your sites, no matter how often you refresh the page. The important metric is not how often you see your ad, but how often your users see the ad.
