Advertising on What's On

What's On is a powerful and cost-effective platform for advertising to a national audience. With over 75,000 unique visitors a month, viewing nearly 300,000 pages, all looking for things to do, it's an audience you can't ignore.

There are a number of different advertising opportunities, from traditional banner adverts, to priority listings, competitions and ads in our email newsletters. We're also more than happy to consider any non-standard advertising campaigns.

Banner advertising

The structure of What' On allows for highly targeted advertising. We can segment the audience both geographically and by lifestyle, depending on your requirements. So you can advertise just to Arts & Culture lovers in Johannesburg, or only Durbanites visiting the Lifestyle section of the website.

For more information or to advertise please contact Wynand Smit: wynand@whatson.co.za or 082 784 8739.


Two newsletters are sent out each week to a mailing list of approximately 35,000 subscribers. Our competition newsletter goes out every Monday and the Weekend Guide is sent out every Thursday, and provides a quick snapshot of the weekend's must do events. Both offer a number of advertising opportunities.
