APMdigest Sponsor Program

APMdigest is an online authority in the Application Performance Management (APM) technology market, and it is the industry's only online publication focused specifically on APM. The goal of APMdigest is to bring the industry together by providing a platform for thought leaders such as analysts, consultants, vendors and users. As our sponsors help us meet this objective, they also gain the advantages of market exposure, brand awareness, lead generation and thought leadership.

APMdigest's prestigious list of sponsors includes APM industry giants CA Technologies and IBM, as well as AppDynamics, which was positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's 2016 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites.

SPONSOR TIERS

We have 3 tiers of sponsorship available.

Platinum Sponsor

Platinum is APMdigest's premier level of sponsorship, providing a banner ad in a unique and highly visible space on every page of the site - not including APM Academy. APMdigest offers a limited number of Platinum Sponsorships. Contact Pete Goldin for more details.

Gold Sponsor

The Gold Sponsor is the main sponsorship of APMdigest, providing high visibility. This tier involves placement of a large ad in the center of the site directly above the featured content. Two Gold Sponsor ads are displayed at any one time, and they rotate with each click so that each Gold Sponsor ad has a chance to be a focal point of the page.

The large ad also appears in the center of the page in the bi-monthly APMdigest emails.

In addition, Gold Sponsors have the option to provide an ad in the right column of the site as well.

Gold Sponsors can post up to 8 white papers and webinars per month, 4 per each email.

Gold Sponsors are also eligible for an unlimited number blogging accounts on the APMdigest Vendor Forum.

Gold Sponsors also receive multiple benefits on APM Buyers Guide:
- Featured Vendor status, with a direct link from the left column nav bar to your directory page.
- Up to 5 featured products on your directory page. Featured products also appear on the APM Buyers Guide home page - 10 at a time, rotating with each click.

Silver Sponsor

Silver is the entry level sponsorship, providing companies with an economical option to gain a presence on APMdigest. If your primary goal is ad clicks, APMdigest recommends the Gold or Platinum sponsorship levels which typically get higher ad clicks than the Silver level ads. If you have a limited budget, and are more interested in gaining brand visibility, and posting your white papers, webinars, free tools and other links on APMdigest, then a Silver Sponsorship is the right choice for you.

Silver Sponsors receive a medium sized ad in the right margin on every web page - not including APM Academy - and in the bi-monthly APMdigest emails.

Silver Sponsors can post up to 4 white papers and webinars per month, 2 per each email.

Silver Sponsors are also eligible for up to 8 blogging accounts on the APMdigest Vendor Forum.
