Clients

Our clients span a number of different sectors,publishing, arts & culture, finance, natural resources, and health & wellness.

Our roots are in branding and advertising for large corporations like General Motors and Bell Canada, and in the writing, editing and publishing of various magazines, and in creating cost-effective marketing solutions within the public sector.

In 2008, we brought our collective histories together, and created Clevers Media – an endeavour we love.

I highly recommend working with Clevers Media if you want to grow and expand your business.

Here is a sampling of some of our current clients and related projects:

Client Love

It’s always nice to hear a kind word from our clients. The other day we received the following from Musicworks Magazine:

“Clevers has been selling ads for us for 5 years now, and our advertising revenue has skyrocketed. Not only have they opened up new revenue streams for us (encouraging us to start a monthly e-newsletter and sell ads within it), they also free up time for us to do the things that make our publication Canada’s premiere experimental music magazine.”

—Andrea Warren, Operations Manager, Musicworks Magazine

Next up for Musicworks is  the re-launch of their website. We’re excited to announce a variety of opportunities we’ve developed that could benefit your organization. Look for updates on these products in the weeks ahead.

The Ryersonian

Based on our success in working with the Ryerson Review of Journalism, Ryerson University has hired us to take on another one of their products – advertising sales for their weekly student paper, The Ryersonian, in addition to their website, social media channels and podcast.

The Ryersonian is the weekly newspaper produced by students in their final year of the Ryerson School of Journalism degree program. Students report, write, edit, and lay out the paper—under the supervision of faculty members and the direction of the publisher, the Chair of the Journalism program—with award-winning results.

PuSh Festival

PuSh Festival

We manage advertising sales in the program guide for PuSh, Vancouver’s international performing arts festival. We’ve expanded sales into new categories, and in our first year almost doubled sales results from the previous year! Next up we’ll be working with them to develop new media properties for advertising and sponsorship revenue.

The annual PuSh festival presents live performances by talented international, Canadian and local artists. For three weeks in January, a wide variety of mesmerizing events including storytelling, music and stage acting engage audiences in dialogue and innovation. The festival aims to showcase the best in contemporary arts, form new partnerships and collaborations among artists, inspire audiences and develop rich cultural relationships abroad. read more

40 Listings

We serve as the advertising sales team for 40 Listings, a real estate website that features the “Top 40” listings in cities around British Columbia.  Establishing the advertising program from scratch, we’ve also advised on what type of media properties to feature on the site, and consulted on the development of a Media Kit and rate card.

40 Listings displays condos, townhouses, lofts, houses, and other properties available for sale in cities like Burnaby, Whistler and Vancouver. Each listing offers photos, contact information, prices and other property details. The site caters to both sellers and buyers.

J-Source

J-Source

We sell the advertising space for J-Source, an online publication of the Canadian Journalism Project, a venture among post-secondary journalism schools and programs across Canada lead by Ryerson University, Université Laval and Carleton University. We’ve also worked with them to build a Media Kit, established new sales opportunities and conducted an industry analysis in order to develop competitive/comparative rates.

Formed in 2007, J-Source provides national news, research and commentary for industry professionals, academics and students, and promotes national journalistic excellence and discussion.

The Beaverton

The Beaverton

We designed and developed a Media Kit for The Beaverton, a satirical Canadian news website based in Toronto and Montreal, featuring the myriad sales and sponsorship opportunities associated with the Beaverton brand, such as podcasts, social media and live events, among other things, in order to expand their reach and bring in new revenue.

Founded in 2010, The Beaverton delivers news stories, editorial and university reviews that parody topics of current events, sports, health and business. The daily news site offers humorous content based on both fabricated and actual events for national and international audiences, but its main focus is Canadian affairs.
