More and more clients are coming to KotaPress each day to meet their promotional needs. Find out how you can meet your needs today.

KotaPress offers three main areas to host ads for you. These areas are the contents pages of our most popularly read sections of the web site. We offer the following information about each section so you can decide which area is most appropriate for your product and service.

This section is geared toward the bereaved. Your ad will be placed on the first page of the section. Our readers come to this section to read articles, find out about the Mrs. Duck Project, check the schedule for local Loss support meetings. We find that while readers may initially come to us for the Loss section immediately after the death of a loved one, they often migrate to the other sections of the site as time passes and healing begins after such Loss. We are accepting ads that are compatible with the focus and mission of this section so the needs of our readers can be met.

This section is geared toward writers and readers of poetry and prose. Part of the audience here is also in the healing field of Expressive Arts Therapies including Poetry Therapy. Our writers and readers are of all ages from teenagers to senior citizens. Your ad will be placed on the first page of the section. Readers come here to read works from new and seasoned writers alike, to read reviews, editor's tips, or other how-to articles. We are accepting ads that are compatible with the focus and mission of this section so the needs of our readers can be met.

This section is geared toward artists of 2D and 3D digital talents. While the other sections of our website use language to reach out to the bereaved or to writers in the expressive/healing arts, we are seeing a huge international surge in our audience from the Art section. There is no language barrier when image is the focus, and so we are finding that many international artists are coming to our site to share in this artistic expression. All audience members come to us to apply for the KotaPress Art Award, to view works by other artists, to read software reviews, and to get editor tips. We are accepting ads that are compatible with the focus and mission of this section so the needs of our readers can be met.
