Every business needs to find and engage its target customers, but how do you find that audience? Can you be sure your core customers see the solutions to the problems you are solving? And, how can you be sure those eyeballs are genuine?

With the increasingly global nature of our readership and growing universal approach to covering the most disruptive issues affecting marketers, The Drum offers partners the opportunity to engage with our audience through print, online, social and at live events attended by the industry’s most senior professionals.

Here are the ways you can engage with our global readership:

  1. Join our Contributor Network

    The Drum’s Contributor Network is our global content marketing platform and gives you the opportunity to have your own page on where you are the editor and the sole contributor. The page design and layout mirrors the main content pages of The Drum site, allowing you to surface your own stream of content on an internationally respected platform and push it into the content hubs and topic pages that best suit your content.

  2. Enter our Awards

    Winning awards can help raise your profile, instill trust and attract new business. Here at The Drum we know how to celebrate excellence. We know how to throw a party. But more importantly we know how to give great companies the recognition they deserve. Learn more here.

  3. Speak at our Events

    We hold events to support, inform, challenge and advise each other on game-changing new ways to work and unconventional ideas. Our mission is all about bringing ideas and people together in a refreshingly social, sharp and disruptive way. Learn more here.

  4. Think Outside the Box

    If you know The Drum, but maybe you don’t, we love new and exciting ideas. We like clients who think outside the box and push the limits, and we’re here to help see that vision through to fruition. Let our custom content team, Drum Studios make your ideas happen.

  5. Sponsor a Feature

    Each monthly issue of The Drum will carry a feature focusing on one specific vertical from retail to travel. We believe these are the sectors at the forefront of technological disruption and are therefore being forced to innovate and deliver creative solutions at speed in order to stay in business. In each vertical focus, we’ll be highlighting some of the most forward-thinking brands and strategies providing a benchmark for future growth. Find forward features here.

  6. Co-Host an Event

    The Drum can work with you to promote your upcoming event through our various channels. Then again, perhaps you would like The Drum to organize an event on your behalf. These may include panels, roundtables, conferences or parties. Such initiatives can be excellent sources for ongoing editorial content too.

  7. Post a Job Opening

    Get access to The Drum's 1 million unique users per month, targeting global professionals within design, advertising, marketing, digital, social media and PR. Find the right person for the right job, anywhere in the world. Post a job here.

  8. Star in a Video

    In an interview, documentary or video series, The Drum can help tell your story to our audience. Our editorial and Drum Studios team have years of experience in crafting a storyline to share your company or city’s vision. Then we promote your video across all our channels.

  9. Create Content

    We’ve got one goal – creating content your customers will love, using unrivalled audience insight and editorial expertise to create compelling brand stories. We know your market, we know your potential customers (probably personally), and we know exactly the type of content they enjoy. We love this market, we live this industry and we want to help you create the content it deserves. Content to help you build authentic, trusted relationships with your customers to drive more business. Learn more here.

  10. Reach a New Digital Audience

    The Drum now covers more news than ever before; delivering essential industry information remains at the heart of what The Drum does. The website attracts an average of 1 million unique users a month generating over 1.7m page views globally. The Drum offers tailored advertising solutions to suit your needs – microsites, videos, varied ad units, sponsored content, surveys and more.
