THANK YOU for your interest in Advertising with Virginia Weather Action! Our page started 8 years ago, back in 2012. Our forecasting team is a blend of degreed Meteorologists, Aviation, Emergency Management, and Storm Chasers, that digs deep into weather analysis and gives our best thoughts and accurate forecasts on upcoming inclement weather events.
Our Audience & Reach
We are going back to our roots and will provide local/regional forecasts in sections. These forecasts will be placed on our Virginia Weather Action Facebook page and other pages we are associated with, as this helps to reach more followers.
We currently have over 85,000 followers and continuing to grow! During a non-severe period, Virginia Weather Action generally reaches anywhere from 150,000 to 300,000 people, from likes and shared posts. However, during an “active” severe weather week (and depending on the severity,) the reach can range anywhere from 300,000 to over 1 million. This generally occurs during widespread snow and ice events, flooding, and potential tornado outbreaks. During our Facebook Live broadcasts, anywhere from 200 to over 1,000 watch “live” but once the video is over, anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 people reply reach live video (depending on the severity of the forecast.)
Your ad will look good on our graphics. Our graphics are clean and displays important weather information, with large text so it’s easy to read on desktop and mobile devices! We will tag your Facebook page in the post and write “Sponsored by:” with a tagline and number (or anything you would like us to say) below the weather information.
Ad placement and size can vary. Usually on the top right of our banners, we recommend no more than 400 w x 150 h. On the bottom of our graphics, it’s usually split into either two or three sections for business advertisements, but you can reserve the entire section.
Forecast Example Graphics + Ad Placements
Our state is divided into local and regional forecast zones. There’s MORE than one forecast for reach zone. For example, Zone 2 – Charlottesville & Harrisonburg would get a Charlottesville AND Harrisonburg forecast, PLUS a special graphic during severe weather that covers more locations (example is in the gallery above.) During inclement weather that impacts more than half of the state, we will make graphics for all of Virginia.
Virginia Weather Action changes by the month or every 3 months (seasonally.) With the official start of Fall and cooler weather, plus potentially more rain on the way, NOW is the BEST TIME to sponsor with us as we expect a fairly active season. Active season means more followers… and more followers mean more exposure to your business advertisement on our page! We have found that plumbing, insurance, electrical, landscaping, and tree removal and clean-up companies do very well on tis page, as it normally “fits the theme” of a weather page, since our followers will likely need one of these resources during or after inclement weather.
Right now, you can save A LOT with our 3 month prepaid promotions on each package. The GOLD package gives you EVERYTHING that you see on the chart. Your business advertisement will be on our website (which gains thousands of views per each inclement weather event,) Facebook LIVE sponsorship with your ad displayed and a introduction about your business, plus your advertisement on all of our graphics! Facebook LIVE and our website is the BEST way to reach out to a large audience. We also offer smaller packages that will also reach many people in your area!
