Dome — the first and only online magazine covering the people, issues and events shaping Michigan policy and politics — enables you to deliver your message easily and effectively. Each month more than 10,000 affluent, influential opinion leaders and decision makers are drawn to Dome’s compelling, free content — news, analysis, opinion, reviews, humor and sophistication not available anywhere else. Dome gives readers a broad, in-depth, intelligent, colorful and stylish look at what’s going on — not just under and around the Capitol dome, but wherever politics and policy are percolating. Elected and appointed officials, lobbyists, policy experts, business and labor leaders, association and nonprofit executives, educators and regular citizens interested in their government make up the core of Dome’s target audience. Dome takes the complexity and high cost out of web advertising. Choose one of two large, affordable ad sizes and determine how long you want your ad campaign to run. Then enjoy Dome’s content — and your advertising results.

Maximum Exposure

To provide your ad with maximum exposure, it will be rotated evenly with other ads throughout the entire website. This enables your ad to be viewed by the largest number of site visitors and allows us to place ads on every page. Site traffic data will be provided on a regular basis. Readership continues to grow by healthy double digits every year.
