Sponsored Content

TMT does not allow paid content that resembles editorial content in style, intent and format. While TMT welcomes such advertisements, we will publish no advertisement that, in the judgment of the publisher, resembles our editorial content enough to be mistaken for a TMT article.

Separate from Editorial Content, layout, artwork, and format of Sponsored Content will be easily distinguished from editorial content and avoid any confusion with the editorial content of TMT.  

Advertorial Guidelines

Guidelines are written to ensure a clear delineation between advertising material and editorial text for our readers, and to facilitate the approval process for advertising in TMT.

All advertorials must be clearly and immediately recognizable as advertisements.

All advertorials are subject to approval.

Single-Page Ad

For a single-page ad, the company name/logo must appear prominently at the top of the ad page. If for branding purposes the logo appears elsewhere in the ad, then the word “ADVERTISEMENT” must appear in the top center of the page in all caps, using a minimum font size of 14 points.

Two-Page Spread Ad

For a two-page spread, the word “ADVERTISEMENT” is required on the top center of the left-hand page, using a minimum font size of 14 points. For the right hand page of the spread, the company name/logo must appear prominently in the upper-right corner. If for branding purposes the logo appears elsewhere in the ad, you have the option of moving or repeating the company logo in the upper-right-hand corner, or adding the word “ADVERTISEMENT” in the top center of this page.

For clarity purposes, a two-page spread will require the word “ADVERTISEMENT” on
BOTH pages if the company name/logo does not appear in the upper-right-hand corner of the right page.

Please contact the publisher for any questions concerning these guidelines.
