GotMead has been the gathering place for mead lovers for over 20 years, and the question I get asked more than any other is ‘where can I find mead in my area?’.
If you are making mead professionally, your audience is here, every day. 100,000 of them every month.
GotMead is what I call ‘low hanging fruit’. Here we have people who love mead, and want to drink it.
So why not advertise your mead here, and let them know you’re out there?
NOTE: All pricing will be discounted in the shopping cart or when you are billed – prices listed here are regular pricing, your 6 month or yearly discount will show up when you check out.

Gotmead.com is the premier site for the meadmaking industry, both home and commercial, and has been so since 1996, averaging more than 110,000 visitors per month and more than 1,000,000 page impressions monthly. We have been on the first page for all the major search engines since 1998 for the word ‘mead’ as well.
The extensive information that Gotmead is always updating and our very active forum attracts users who make, research and buy mead, and also draws newspaper, magazine, internet and television interviews from around the world.
Gotmead is quoted around the web, and by newspapers all over the world. One of our interviews was with the airline magazine for a European airline, and we are quoted and linked there for the eyes of readers from all over the world. We are also one of the main sponsors for the Mazer Cup International Mead Competition. We have a Facebook page and group, a Twitter account, and a Google+ page, all of which are seeing more interaction every day.
Finally, we also have an internet radio show, GotMead Live, which is pushing even more traffic to our site, as it is broadcast worldwide weekly, and carried on iTunes, SoundCloud and other syndication sites.
We continue to get interview requests on a regular basis and see an ongoing increase in traffic as a result, which means more business for *you*.
Our members are intelligent mead enthusiasts of various levels of expertise from beginner to advanced. The majority are college educated, and many hold advanced degrees (we seem to have a lot of Ph.D’s). Your advertising opportunities will reach visitors of both genders (60/40 in favor of males) who speak English, have a college education and are mostly between 25-60 years of age. Approx ~75% of the traffic is from the US, followed by the Netherlands, Australia, Canada and the UK.
Banner and button advertising give you the opportunity to capitalize on that traffic and increase the frequency of messaging. By integrating Web advertising into your marketing or lead-generation campaign, you extend your brand exposure to a highly targeted audience of mead lovers.
