Promote Your Business

Our readers love Mérida and the Yucatán Peninsula.

Our readers are in Yucatán, or want to invest here. If these are the kind of consumers you need to reach, you want to partner with YEL, a fast-growing news and information source with the largest social media reach among English-language readers in Yucatán.

Our readers

  • We average 1.58 million page views a year — not bad for a tightly targeted niche website.
  • Although we are the newest in the bunch, we have far more Facebook followers than any other similar pages delivering news in English about Yucatán.
  • A little over 54 percent are reading us from the United States and Canada; 39 percent are already in Mexico, mainly Mérida, but with significant readership in population centers across the country. News aimed at English-speaking expats is clearly relevant to residents of Mexico City, Monterrey, Veracruz and other areas where people are deciding to invest in Yucatán.

You have a story to tell, and readers who are interested. Let us write about you and your business with a Promoted Post

After establishing brand recognition and awareness with banner ads, the next step in marketing your business is an engaging and persuasive Promoted Post.
A Promoted Post is no different than an article you would read in a magazine, but this time it’s you or your business in the spotlight.

After discussion about your goals, and the story you want to tell, we exchange questions and answers. We keep it light, suggesting questions about your background, your vision of the business, plans for the future and perhaps advice for expats.

Our editor will polish the story and return an 800- to 1,100-word draft for your approval. We agree on a publication date, and publish it. Then, it remains on our home page for a week. It will remain online indefinitely, something you can link to from your own website or social media account.

You can supply any photos you’d like to include, or we will assign a photographer for an additional fee.

We write and host your story for a one-time fee of $7,000 MXN. It remains on our front page for one week, and stays online indefinitely for you to link to from your own website or social media page.

Talk to us about the possibilities.
