Manchester Business
Advertising Support Scheme

Due to the ongoing impact that the Covid-19 crisis is having on our local economy, we want to lend our support to businesses during these unprecedented times. As a Manchester-born business ourselves, our local community is incredibly close to our hearts. We’re offering our support to local businesses by providing free direct access to our highly engaged audiences right where they live and work across the city.

Here at 30Seconds Media, we are providing up to £300,000 worth of airtime across our city-wide network. From 25th June to the 31st August business can apply to receive free of charge advertising packages to help support post-lock down reopening.

These advertising packages will be tailored to the individual business’ needs and provide bespoke and relevant audiences across our city-wide network. Each package gives a week’s tenancy up to the value of £2,000. Each package delivers a 10-second advertising slot that is shown in rotation every 50 seconds.
