When looking to engage the FT's valuable audience with display advertising we offer three ways of doing so on ft.com. Page ownership, High Impact advertising and a Blended solution. Each of these options offer a solution that can meet all campaign KPI's and creatives.

Blended

Our blended solution is ideal when advertisers are trying to reach audiences across multiple devices. Utilising all of the FT's platforms and ad units this execution allows flexibility in delivering your message to the right person at the right time. Advertisers using this solution should provide all creative ad units and as a minimum an MPU and one other creative execution.

High Impact

The High Impact advertising solution is perfect for advertisers looking to create an emotional connection between their brand and the user.  These are our most prominent and visual units and help deliver immersive advertising experiences.

Page Ownership

For advertisers looking to align themselves with a theme or a specific topic we offer contextually relevant opportunities. Maximising relevancy this execution gives advertisers the opportunity of creating specific messages that correlate to the content around them. This method of advertising ensures you are speaking to the right people in the right environment whilst creating an exclusive presence on that particular page of our site.

Homepage Roadblock
For advertisers wanting to create real impact for a campaign, ownership of our most premium position on FT.com and web app is available via a Homepage Roadblock. This sponsorship offering allows advertisers to take all advertising units displayed on the homepage for 24 hours. To qualify for this advertisers must provide all creative sizes.
