ADVERTISING

Roar is a unique Sri Lankan content platform built for a vibrant, restless new generation, gearing up to take on new challenges. Established in 2014, Roar believes in disrupting the current media landscape in Sri Lanka. We report on a diverse range of subjects relevant to Sri Lankans, with content that is factual, unbiased, easily accessible, easy to read, shareable, and just as importantly, well written. We also put our users first, by providing a premium experience that is clean and uncluttered.

In keeping with our goal to innovate and not imitate, we aim to help our advertisers move past the traditional advertising model which is fast becoming irrelevant. To that end, we’ve pioneered an innovative new advertising model which results in high visibility for advertisers, as well as a clean, uncluttered reading experience for our audiences. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

Our content team will work with you to craft an engaging, factually verified article which clearly communicates what your brand has to offer. This high quality content is given the same care we put into our daily content and includes the Roar trade mark edge. We even help brands seed this content, to reach a wider audience.

You also have the option of purchasing add-ons, which will help increase the effectiveness of your sponsored article. Think of this as a jet pack.

Currently, we have three add-ons. The “Extra Visibility” add-on will get your article featured on the “Latest Stories” section on our homepage. The “Extra Reach” add-on will spread your article among a wider audience on social media and comes with a $15 Boost for Facebook.

And lastly, you can opt for the “Event Coverage” add-on. This is helpful if your sponsored article is about an event you’re hosting. Our team will take photos, broadcast moments on Snapchat, and share clicks from your event on Instagram.

Sponsored Articles will appear on the portal they are allocated to. For instance, a tech-related sponsored article will appear on Roar Tech.

Banners

You can also choose to promote your brand via banner ads. Banners will also be visible on Facebook Instant Articles, mobile browsers, as well as on our app, prominently in between content
