Advertising with ActDrop


Below, you'll find details of all the ways you can advertise with us.


We provide a range of options to suit all advertisers - even for companies operating on very small budgets.


Our site attracts visitors looking for information about all aspects of London theatre.


And our listings are updated daily and usually consist of over 600 upcoming and current shows at over 180 London theatres, plus theatre events and festivals in London and across the UK.


We also publish daily London theatre news items, previews and video show trailers as well as longer articles.


Free ads


When we don't have paid ads to display, we often show information about campaigns we want to support.


If you would like us to highlight your campaign free of charge, you can contact us here.


We also offer FREE small ads are for people in London's theatre industry who are looking for collaborators on a theatre project, wanting to advertise auditions and the like or to find assistance with some other aspect of a show or theatre-related event.


Ad design tips


ActDrop is a responsive website, so ads are resized according to the user's device.


That means ads will display at a much-reduced size on, for example, small mobile phones (especially in portrait mode).


However, we have larger ad sizes for our mid and end page ads which have a much larger footprint and show up well on all devices.


Use text sparingly and prefer larger font sizes where possible and use striking images to attract attention.


Avoid trying to cram-in too much detail - leave that for your website or social media link page.


We accept animated gifs which can provide more space for text and images - please use no more than 3 frames in each gif to keep image size to a minimum and save page-loading time.


In our rate card below we give examples of each ad type together with their sizes.


Booking


Before booking an ad, please make sure you've reviewed our simple terms and conditions and have reviewed our rate card (below).


Then, when you have selected the type of ad you want, you can make a booking with this form.


You can pay for your ad online in our booking form.


When we receive confirmation of your booking and payment, we'll send you an invoice by email.
