Our Community and Topics
SurvivalBlog has been told by business owners that, in some cases, a mere editorial mention of a product on our web site has significantly increased sales of products to the point that their small businesses sold out or came close to selling out of inventory. Therefore, we know our readers buy products!
The blog’s readers learn how to prepare for various disasters that might come in the form of natural, health, economic, or societal threats as well as threats to personal liberty and freedoms. The community is interested in products that enable them to prepare for these disasters.
The daily blog contains original copyrighted content produced by its editorial staff as well as its virtual community of readers with diverse experiences and skills who contribute to the blog as part of one of the blog’s innovations– a generous writing contest where readers write to share their knowledge and experiences while competing for nearly $12,000 in prizes, which are awarded once every two months.
Topics written by the community of editors and readers and added to the archives of more than 31,000 copyrighted articles owned by SurvivalBlog are diverse and range from:
- weathering tornadoes to survival tools,
- retreat home construction to fuel storage and alternative fuel,
- from rural relocation and self-employment to food storage,
- from home defense to wilderness survival, to privacy, and
- much, much more.
SurvivalBlog’s large, loyal readership base is serious about the survival/preparedness lifestyle and is willing to invest in related quality goods and services. Our community consists of men, women, families, married and single people of diverse ages and ethnicities living all over North America and even around the world. They are friendly toward family-owned, small businesses as well as corporations that produce quality products.
With no subscription fees or registration required since the blog began in 2005, our readers are loyal and are significant purchasers of quality survival, preparedness, and self-sufficiency products and related services. A majority of our readers make reading SurvivalBlog part of their daily routine, yet there are new readers added to the SurvivalBlog community regularly. The SurvivalBlog staff receives letters from people who say their family has read SurvivalBlog together daily (some together during mealtime) for many years as well as people who are excited they have just found the blog. For the most part, our readers are serious about preparedness and wiling to invest in products that enable their success should a disaster come their way. More importantly, SurvivalBlog readers tend to buy in bulk and also place repeat orders. You couldn’t ask for better customers.
SurvivalBlog provides each advertiser with access to our in-house custom advertising system data. As an advertiser, you will know exactly how each of your ads is performing and you have access to change your ad graphic (or wording on text ads) and the URL that the ad points to. You can be as active in your advertising campaign as you want to be, and the statistics that you get access to are the actual numbers, not estimations.
SurvivalBlog’s advertisers have the opportunity to partner with a unique and innovative blog that is a very well-recognized leader in the survival-preparedness-self-sufficiency industry. Not only is SurvivalBlog unique because it was the first survival-preparedness blog beginning back in 2005, but it is also unique in its content and customer loyalty as well as its automation. SurvivalBlog is the only daily survival-focused blog with consistent original daily content, and its two million* readers are serious to respect the products and services offered on SurvivalBlog.

Latimer, will work with you to help you get set up to use the blog’s automated advertising system that puts you in control of your marketing program and gives you quick control to turn on a dime when you have specials, new products, or close-outs to announce to the blog’s readers.
