Advertise with us

Tedium is a great spot for your ad campaign. As an email-driven content hub focused on turning noise into signal, we can offer:

  1. Open rates around 40 percent—and more than 8,000 dedicated readers, many of whom get all the way to the end of the articles.
  2. Focused subject matter that has a shelf life long beyond the issue's drop date.
  3. Copy directly relevant to your advertising needs—including (in case of an issue takeover) a related article that's a great fit.
  4. A bold, colorful design unlike anything else currently hitting your audience's inboxes.
  5. An alternative to marketing spam: If sending yet another transactional marketing email is going to drive your subscribers crazy, send them an issue of Tedium instead. It could let you say hello to your audience in a new way.

“He writes these long posts filled with details where he digs up old patent filings, or clippings from hundred-year-old newspapers, archival audio … He just goes so nuts—and I love it.”

— Alex Goldmark, supervising producer of NPR's Planet Money, describing that thing we do with Tedium.
