Advertise with World Architecture Community

After over 10 years serving the architecture community as a unique platform where architects, architecture students and academics meet, share and compete, World Architecture Community recently introduced the possibility to advertise on its platform. This is offered in 3 different formats:

World Architecture Materials

World Architecture Materials (WAM), provides enlisted manufacturers and services providers with the ability to list their materials, products and services for architects. It allows them to reach close to a million architects around the globe...

Please note that as a Building and Construction Materials and Products manufacturer or Service Provider, you may use all three formats listed above (i.e. WAM, standard advertisement and sponsored content) for more impact - in other words, they are not exclusive and may be combined. Please visit our World Architecture Materials section for more information on listing your products and services on this new platform.


Standard Advertisement

As part of its standard advertisement solutions, World Architecture Community offers 3 packs:

As each advertising pack has its benefits, a single pricing scheme applies to all three packs (Home Page, News and Projects). The media bookings are based on first come, first served basis. Please contact World Architecture Community for availability. Please see below for more information about each pack:

Home Page Pack

Directly on the home page of World Architecture Community, there are 2 large leaderboard banners, one below the main “teaser” slider section (ex: in orange), and another right after the Agenda boxes (ex: in blue) for a wide banner advertisement. Each banner is sold separately but may also be sold together on demand. These would be great spots for presenting a company (brand awareness or corporate presentation) to our community members.

In addition, we have another 2 square banners on the home page of World Architecture Community, one square within the Architecture News section, and another within the Projects section (ex: in orange and in blue) for a square banner advertisement. Each is sold separately but may also be sold together on demand. This would be a great spot for presenting a product or service to our community members.

Our most visited single page, WAC home page totals about 300,000 pageviews1 per year, largely from professional architects from all around the globe, so a truly targeted audience. The banner(s) may link to an internal or external page where more information may be delivered to the target audience.


News Pack

World Architecture Community’s News are the second most popular spot of our portal, both directly from within our portal as well as through referrals from our twitter and other social accounts. As such, the main news page and the individual news article pages total close to 1,000,000 pageviews1, combined together. What we offer for the “News Pack” is to have 1 box (ex: in orange and blue) placed in either 3rd or 7th position within each set of the 12 news boxes, loaded as you scroll down.

Both are placed based in order of “first-come first-serve” principle.


Projects Pack

World Architecture Community’s Projects pages are, by far, the most viewed pages of our portal. As such, when combined, the main projects page (above) and the individual project pages total close to 1,150,000 pageviews1. What we offer for the “Projects Pack” is to have 1 box (ex: in orange and blue) placed in either 3rd or 7th position within each set of the 12 project boxes, loaded as you scroll down.

Sponsored Content

World Architecture Community accepts a limited number of Sponsored Content articles (max. 3 concurrent in any given month). These are posted just like our News articles and remain in our pool of news articles forever, with a “Sponsored Content” tag / indicator. They are also indexed in Google and other search portals and may easily be found and accessed during or after your campaign, provided the right set of keywords were used.

See example below:

The offer also includes 12 posts on our Twitter (over 460,000 followers as of September 2018) and Facebook accounts, 3 posts via our LinkedIn and 1 post via our Instagram account (over 150,000 followers as of September 2018), over the course of the month.


Traffic Information

World Architecture Community’s main differentiator from other architecture portals and websites offering similar services is the geographical distribution of its visitors. Although most of our visitors during the last 12 months1 came from the USA (31%), 59% of our visitors and 75% of our pageviews were from Eurasia, proving that WAC covers a different geographical space.

Among close to 800,000 unique visitors WAC welcomed in the last 12 months1, the Western World represented 52% (North America 32%, Europe 18% and ANZ 2%) of all visitors. The remaining 48% of our visitors, more specifically in Asia (41%), Latin America (4%) and Africa (3%), is a direct result of WAC’s intentional focus on countries less or not covered by mainstream media and other platforms.

Other Important Information

Payments are made in full upon receipt of the pro-forma invoice, either by bank transfer or via secure credit card payment.

World Architecture Community reserves the right to remove any advertisement that does not abide by the World Architecture Community’s WA Member Agreement2, in particular:

  • the content of the advertisement shall not be defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic or obscene,
  • harmful to minors, in violation of child pornography or child sexual exploitation laws, and more generally,
  • the content shall not violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation.

The announcer has the ultimate responsibility for the content of the advertisement or sponsored content.

World Architecture Community also offers country / countries specific advertisement, however sponsored content is exclusively offered globally. Pricing per country for advertisement is calculated based on 1/8th of the applicable price (i.e. 2 countries for 2/8th of applicable price, and so on). The minimum period both for advertising and sponsored content is one month. We also want to mention here that the IP number filtering for defining which countries advertisements should be visible in are less and less reliable nowadays (among other reasons, the use of VPN in many countries); therefore World Architecture Community may not guarantee that your advertisement will be seen by all visitors from the defined country.
