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 Aug 7th?

Apparently, 42 of us are Lottery millionaires,  in our postcode area. Really National Lottery? Our latest insight was with Ted Booth, the Library ‘writer in residence’. Ted brings poetry to West Hampstead, literally (in all senses). There was a funeral on Quex Road for the leader of the former leader of the GMB, Mary Turner. Jeremy […]

An Insight into: Ted Booth

Who is Ted Booth you are asking?  This month’s Insight is a bit different. Instead of interviewing a local business owner, WHL sat down to have a chat with Ted Booth, who is the current writer-in-residence for the Friends of West Hampstead Library. Ted’s a very cool guy but wouldn’t consider himself as such – he’s far too […]

What have you missed since July 31st?

We are entering the summer doldrums, but no silly season here at WHL. There was an acid attack – in West Hampstead. We hope the victim is OK and the perpetrators are caught. Goodbye, Father Andrew. With much sadness West Hampstead is ‘rid of that turbulent priest’ (in the opinion of some, but not us). […]

Who buried the body? The sad tale of “The Kilburn Mystery”

Pembroke Place was a cul-de-sac of four-roomed houses off Granville Road in South Kilburn. It has long been demolished – today the St Augustine’s sports centre occupies roughly the same site. In the early 20th century, it was described as a mean and congested neighbourhood, where domestic violence often erupted. The properties were so small […]
