Planet Vending Rate Card 2024


What is Planet Vending?

We are Vending’s Best Read digital only vending publication. We write original articles, and publish appropriate press releases whilst keeping an eye on writing standards. We launched in October 2012 and our growth has been organic within vending and our 2000 plus email subscribers receive an email update every Friday. We come from a PR background so our focus is on story telling…

Who reads Planet Vending?

Pretty much everyone in vending, from operators, to brand managers, to manufacturers, to asset finance businesses, engineers, FM managers, and a whole raft of key influencers in and outside the industry! A recent increase in readership profile has come from within the MicroMarkets, Facilities Management, OCS and HORECA sectors.

Who are our current clients?

Its a long list but we work with machine manufacturers, software developers, big brand products, new entrants to the industry with exciting new products, plus vending operators and unattended retail providers.

Why should I consider advertising or taking you up on your opportunities?

If you want to reach the key influencers in the vending, unattended retail, and OCS market – then it’s a bit of a no-brainer. Our email update has a 35% open rate every week. Every single article we publish is distributed across our extensive social media platforms including Linked In and appropriate Linked In Groups.

How much does it cost to be featured on PV?

The glib answer is ‘how much have you got in your budget?’ We do have a tariff as below but if you are looking at a campaign that mixes banner adverts with editorial, blogs or sponsorship over a period of time – and have a budget, no matter what size – then talk to us. We know that marketing budgets are stretched tight and we want you to be delighted. The following costs are based on a ‘once only’ or ‘one only’ basis. We apply discounts for multiple coverage so ask us for a proposal.
