We don’t accept advertising…we have something better for all concerned: corporate membership.

Three Winners

  • A company that makes gear or provides a service gets to keep their brand in front of our members and other readers for a small fraction of what advertising would cost for the same exposure.
  • Our members get a bit of a deal on the product or service.
  • We get a modest contribution to our revenue which helps keep us viable so we can continue to highlight good gear and services and expose poor stuff.

The Details

Corporate Membership Silver

What We Are

  • Over 1000 articles (about the size of War and Peace).
  • We add 80 new articles a year.

  • Incredible engagement: 80% of our visitors stay for 30 seconds or more,

Why So Cheap?

  • What’s wrong with this deal?
  • Just $2.40 per thousand impressions (silver)? That’s less than half the price of anywhere else.
  • AAC must be hiding some problem?

No, not a bit of it:

  • This is not about advertising.
  • It’s about partnering with companies that make good gear or provide a good service.
  • The discount/coupon program is another benefit for our members.
  • We want to make it so compelling to join up as corporate members that we don’t have to sell you—our job is content creation.
