If you believe that individual citizens have a right to Keep and Bear
Arms, welcome to the opportunity to present your advertising on
this website and/or in our newsletters.
By far, the most
effective form of advertising is to ensure that ads are targeted to a
specific audience. Whether you are building brand name awareness,
developing traffic or driving sales, the key is knowing your audience.
Though you probably already know what we're about, we'll spell it out:
The content of our site is viewed by gun owners, citizens concerned about freedom,
conservatives and libertarians, rugged individualists, hunters, shooters, gun and
knife collectors, the general public, and quite a few other subcategories of these
fine people. We will share them with you and you with them.
If you have a product or service of interest to our
Internet audience, KeepAndBearArms.com is one solution to your ad campaign. We provide
advertisers with first class results by targeting their ads to the
right people time and time again for prices so much less expensive
than print advertising it's almost silly not to advertise with us.

individual email addresses
of supporters of the 2nd Amendment, and many of those email addresses
are entire distribution lists. There are three advertising placements available. The
first is sponsor spot - if you purchase this spot the newsletter will
state "Sponsored By" in your ad. There are two
additional advertising spots on each newsletter issue: a middle spot
and a bottom spot. (If you buy multiple issues, you will pay
advertised rate per issue fee, even as the number of subscribers go
up. You will never be charged more than what was originally agreed

run banners in the .gif format. If you provide a .jpg banner, we will
convert and optimize your ad for fast load time. We do not run Flash
banners due to the fact that our experience has shown that some of our
viewers cannot or will not use Flash plug-ins, and we're not cutting them
off just to run an ad. And we do not run animated .gif images due to
load time issues, but there could be an exception made on the animated
.gif issue if it's an extremely small file.
I'm interested. What now?
