About Us

The Times, The Guardian, Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Sun, Metro, The Express, City AM, Evening Standard, The Mirror, The Observer – along with celebrities, influencers and household names – all publish positive content that consumers trust in partnership with Hurst Media.

Our double-page spreads, branded content, advertorials and competitions are placed within national newspapers, magazines and influential online platforms to cost effectively target tightly-defined audiences. From art lovers to agriculture; brides-to-be to business people; fitness fans to foodies, and many more: Hurst Media’s promotional content gets brands, products and services noticed by their main markets.

OK! Magazine distributes Hurst Media’s flagship consumer lifestyle title –  Celebrity Secrets – to nearly one million readers nationwide. Celebrity Secrets is more “how to” than “who’s who”; more “get it” than gossip; more inspiration than just information. It’s more than a magazine. High profile celebrities and influencers regularly collaborate with Celebrity Secrets to encourage millions of interactions with engaging, short-form, brand-focused online content.

As well as our partnerships with national newspapers and magazines, Hurst Media’s branded content and advertorials appear on influential online platforms including the Mail Online. Native Content resembles the online publication’s editorial content but promotes the advertiser’s product in a useful and meaningful way. We help advertisers create awareness, drive traffic to their website and engage with their target audience, through content they’ll love in trusted editorial environments.

Specialist independent planners and buyers at Hurst Media regularly reduce brands’ marketing and advertising costs. They can procure advertising space at preferred rates from any media company across any platform: broadcast, online, print, outdoor and more. All prices are quoted on the essential condition that Hurst Media will save you time and money.

The Professional Publishing Association shortlisted Hurst Media Company in the 2019 Independent Publisher Awards as Independent Publishing Company of the Year, Commercial Partnership of the Year and Best Team.
