You’re trying to get the word out about your awesome local small- and medium-sized Calgary business on a tight budget. We get it. We’re in the same boat.

That’s why we’re offering a handful of simple, low-cost options for local advertisers. All with updated 2021/2022 pricing. If you have questions, email

Display ads

There are two options: Footer and right corner (premium).

Footer: These ads are placed at the bottom of every LWC story post. They see roughly between 25,000 and 40,000 impressions per month.

Cost: $100 per month – flat rate (Camera-ready ad – specs 240×320 pixels, 300 dpi)

$150 for the first month if our graphic designer does it. $100 each month after that.

TOP RIGHT: This is a premium spot that sees 40,000 to 50,000 impressions per month.

Cost: $150 per month – flat rate (Camera-ready ad – specs 300×260 pixels, 300 dpi)

Partner Content listing.

$200 for the first month if our graphic designer does it. $150 per month after that.

Partner Content

This is a 350-500 word client-directed content piece, with photo, published via LiveWire Calgary. It resides in a special promotion area on the right-hand side of the home page. This is an opportunity to tell a specific story about your organization.

We’ll even give it a special post on social media from time to time.

Cost: $350 for the first month (cost to produce), $100 each month after that.

Podcast mention

We have a handful of successful podcasts available through LiveWire Calgary.

If you want two sponsor mentions and then a 15 to 30 second in-podcast pitch, this is a great option for you.

Cost: $50 per podcast episode.

NEW: LWC Flip (pre-selling)

Shhhh… if you’re here, you’re one of the few people who know about an upcoming launch of a new daily news product that gets sent right to your phone. No, not a newsletter. A smartphone-specific micro news product.

We’re pre-selling this at a rock bottom price: $10 per day. Less if you want to go for a full month. You’ll have to jump in early on this deal, because once our readership rises, so will the price for a daily ad.

The beauty: It’s the same specs as the display ad on the web (above). If you want, you could piggyback the ad buy together.

Let’s work together to rebuild Calgary’s economy

It’s a win-win: We help you, you help us. Trust us, we’re partners that do everything we can to support those who support us. And then some.
