Advertise on West Hampstead Life

It couldn’t be simpler or more cost-effective

Whether you want to raise awareness of your business, tell locals about a special offer, or promote an event,  West Hampstead Life is by far the most popular and respected website dedicated to West Hampstead. It also covers news from Kilburn, South Hampstead, Fortune Green, Finchley Road and Swiss Cottage and has a readership concentrated in this part of London.

The site generates substantial traffic – peak months see 20,000 unique visitors and upwards of 50,000 page views.

Unlike almost every other local media website, West Hampstead Life is designed so that your adverts are seen by everyone. Whether on desktop, tablet or phone, your advert retains a prominent position rather than sinking to the bottom where it’s out of sight/out of mind, or not appearing at all on smaller devices.

Almost 50% of traffic to West Hampstead Life is from tablets and mobiles. Why pay a fortune when only half the people you’re being told will see the ad will actually ever clap eyes on it? West Hampstead Life actually cares about its advertisers – your success is what enables us to do what we love doing.

Sponsored post

Does your brand deserves more than a banner ad? Why not write an article. This sort of “native advertising” is increasingly popular, and if you have something genuinely interesting to say or can find that sweet spot between your business objectives and readers’ desire for great content, then these pieces can be at least as popular as the editorial content we generate.

For example, a local dentist sponsored the Alexandra Palace firework display in 2013. The article they wrote was hugely popular as people are often searching for information about local fireworks. Local estate agents regularly write property features and these frequently appear in our “most read” list.

Some companies also choose to run competitions – we’ve had concert tickets, a year’s car club membership, book giveaways and more.

If you’re interested in engaging readers with your business rather than just telling them how great you are, then get in touch. Prices start from £100, and are based on length of article, whether you want us to write the copy for you, run a competition etc.

What have you missed since December 4th?

It snowed! You can always rely on the Wet Fish for an appropriate tweet. We took a closer look at the redevelopment of Gondar Gardens into luxury retirement flats (including indoor swimming pool and chauffeur-driven cars) but ‘can’t afford’ any affordable housing. S-e-r-i-o-u-s-l-y? Time for another Insight in West Hampstead; this time we popped into […]

Luxury retirement development ‘can’t afford’ to pay for affordable housing

West Hampstead is facing yet another large-scale property development. It’s the third proposal to redevelop the site at the former Gondar Gardens reservoir. The history of the previous proposals have been well documented on these pages, but what really caught our eye about this one was that it offers no affordable housing either on-site or as […]

From Kilburn to Mount Rushmore: The story of Gutzon Borglum

It’s Thanksgiving in America, so what better time to dig into the link between Kilburn and the man behind one of the most iconic landmarks in the US. American artist and sculptor Gutzon Borglum lived and worked at Harlestone Villa in Mortimer Road, Kilburn from about 1897 to 1902. The property was later renumbered as […]

No nonsense for Tom at Nona

A visit to Nona on Fairhazel Gardens seemed a decent idea, as it meant stopping off for drinks beforehand at The Arches, the most charming bar in the area and a venue of even more stature and importance since the closure of the much-missed La Brocca. And so, after a really excellent glass of Sauvignon […]
