The Bradley Stoke Journal aims to bring you news and in-depth analysis of the important issues in the town.
Our website was originally founded to track the progress of the new town centre development in Bradley Stoke (now known as the Willow Brook Centre) but we now cover everything that’s going on in Bradley Stoke, including business news, charity events, politics, sports events and lots more.
In order to cover hosting costs, the website carries a limited amount of local and national advertising.
The vast majority of our news articles are independently written but we do occasionally run sponsored articles for which we might receive payment from an advertiser (any such articles will be clearly identified as “sponsored”).
If you are interested in advertising on the website, please ask for our rate card through the Contact Us page.
This website is produced independently of Bradley Stoke Town Council, Tesco Stores Limited and the Willow Brook Centre, although we regularly cooperate with those organisations in order to bring you the latest local news.

If you are advertising a time-limited event or offer, we would suggest taking a slot with a 100% impression rate for one month. Slot 0 has maximum prominence, being above the first news article on the home page; it can be combined with slot 8 to give coverage across all pages. Slots 1, 3 and the A/B/C & D/E/F groups give the greatest number of impressions. If you are looking to increase brand awareness or have a long-term marketing aim, slot 2 (with a 20% impression rate per share) can be taken for a longer period of six months. Sponsored Articles We can publish a sponsored news article (advertorial) about your business, which will appear in our standard news flow, i.e. syndicated in our RSS, Facebook and Twitter feeds. The article must be about some newsworthy event (e.g. opening of a new branch, publicising a special event or discount, availability of new services etc.). It will be clearly designated as an “advertising feature”, in accordance with industry best practice. Examples of recent sponsored articles that we have run: Information day for Bradley Stoke retirement development New bike repair service will come to you Tone up and burn body fat at the Little Stoke ‘bootcamp’ Maths and English study centre to open new Saturday class Guidelines for writing a sponsored article: Your article should be written in the third person and answer the questions: Who, What, Where, When, Why? It should be at least 200 words in length; there is no upper limit. We require all our articles to have at least one photo or logo (please supply images as separate files). You are welcome to use more. We can use “lighbox” technology to pop-up full size images (up to A5 size) from a reduced size version. When the article appears on the home page or on an archive page, it will have a “read more link” after the first 200 words (approx), so you should include the most important aspects of your article within those 200 words. A sponsored article will continue to work for you indefinitely, long after it has been published, through its presence in search engine results. Sponsored Pages You can sponsor one of the directory or information pages on our website. Many of these pages are top-ranked on Google for searches of the form “<some service> Bradley Stoke”. If your business is a good match for the information on the page, you can tap into the potential of pre-qualified high-relevance visitors. Sponsorship of a page entitles you to a large banner towards the top of the page and top position in any directory listing on the page. Examples of sponsored pages in our Town Guide: Driving Schools (sponsored by Sparkies Driving School) Home Improvements (sponsored by Topfit Kitchens and Bathrooms) Mortgages & Financial Advice (Sponsored by The Mortgage Market) Competition Management Have you thought of promoting your business through a consumer competition or prize draw? We can manage the whole process for you, from the design of a dedicated competition entry page to promotion of your competition through sponsored articles, banner adverts and social media marketing. Example of a recent consumer competition managed by The Journal: Win a year’s free gym membership at Anytime Fitness Reader Offers If you are able to offer our readers an exclusive deal on your company’s products or services, we will give you a discount on our standard advertising rates (subject to negotiation).
