Civil + Structural Engineer Media is passionate about being the best source of news and information for the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industries. What started as two separate print publications over a decade ago has transformed into both a digital magazine and a website that generates an average of 100,000 visitors a month. As the way our readers consume their news changes, so do we. Our brand has evolved to reflect digital consumption by adding media to our platform. We are no longer a print publication but rather a multi-platform resource to the AEC industry. We are a comprehensive media outlet. Our redesigned website is structured around 8 topic-specific channels: Environmental & Sustainability, Structures & Buildings, Transportation & Infrastructure, Water & Stormwater, Business News, Software & Technology, Unmanned Systems, and Surveying. Each piece of news and article is contained within one or more of these channels, making the information more accessible to our readers. Channel sponsorships are currently available for 2022. We have also returned the popular Civil + Structural Engineer Media weekly e-newsletter. This platform has a high delivery open rate and advertisers can utilize our unique “e-newsletter takeover” to further enhance their content. Our services are adaptable to the needs of interested advertisers. Civil + Structural Engineer Media is looking forward to delivering your advertising needs and letting your content shine on each of our media platforms.

ENEWS TAKEOVER

The process begins with your ads appearing in the C+S eNewsletter, the first of two emails sent. You own 100 percent of the ad space. Our C+S formatting will otherwise stay the same. Ads placed in eNewsletter #1: Leaderboard, Advertorial + Advertorial Image, Medium Rectangle, Video Block. One week after sending E-newsletter #1, we will deploy E-newsletter #2 to a list that was generated of engaged readers from E-newsletter #1. E-newsletter #2 will be entirely your content. The formatting will be what is typical of a dedicated email blast; an event announcement, an ebook download, a product push, etc. The process we developed weeds out the uninterested parties, leaving a thorough list of interested and qualified leads. Call today for 2022 availability and pricing. Visit https://csengineermag.com/advertise-with-us/ for examples.

Whitepapers

LET US HOST YOUR WHITE PAPER! White papers are reports that can address a business issue, showcase a product, or outline a competitive situation. Longer than a blog post, but shorter than an e-Book, research indicates buyers prefer shorter white papers. 4 REASONS TO CREATE A WHITE PAPER: • Sharing technical knowledge • Generating publicity • Distributing business information • Attracting prospects NEEDED FOR WHITEPAPER/CASE STUDY HOSTING: • Logo in .png or .eps format • Title of white paper/case study • Sentence or two as description of document • White paper/case study in .pdf format OR link to document on your site. • Any other pictures you would like on the landing site. This usually includes a picture from the document itself.
