CSBJ Rates

For 20 years the CSBJ has been impacting the community’s affluent decision makers.  With an average household net worth of $1.8 million, advertising in the CSBJ reaches decision makers with the expendable income available to buy your product or service and influence others also.

CSBJ subscriber demographics

In March 2008, Readex Research mailed out 28,000 survey kits in 56 markets. The response rate average for all markets was 35%.  The Colorado Springs Business Journal response rate was 41%.  This is 17% higher than the national average.  This shows a closer relationship CSBJ subscribers have with the CSBJ as compared to other business Journals.

“There’s a lot to like here, with a relentless focus and a great deal of news.  I come away with a sense of place, and a business publication that loves where it is without being too much of a home-town booster.  In short, I put you well into the top tier of news-driven biz publications.”
