Daily Detroit is an all-digital daily publication focusing on what to know and where to go in Metro Detroit.
We provide our readers the content they love in a way that fits the fast-paced, 21st century lifestyle and they can’t help but share with their friends.
We’re the information source for people who want to explore the city and region; for those looking for the newest or under-the-radar find or the under-reported story; for interesting things to talk about; for those who care about the city, region, and pushing it forward.
8 Things To Know About Daily Detroit:
- We believe in Detroit and working together for a better region by pushing Detroit’s conversation forward
- We’re on the ground. From development stories to the best burger in town and everything in between, we’re there. For our lists, we’ve tried all the things. For our reviews, we’ve gone to and tried the place.
- We are truly local. No wire copy, Associated Press or forced network content. Metro Detroiters don’t want the McPaper, they want their own voices covering their communities
- We are solution-oriented, focused more on policy than politics
- We meet our readers where they are – on social media, email and their smartphones
- We’re digital natives, and so is most of our audience. We utilize multimedia platforms like video and podcasts that our readers can enjoy anywhere, at any time, using the medium that best tells the story
- Our audience is 58 percent female, 42 percent male, and is mostly under the age of 40 (predominantly ages 25-34)
- Nearly 2 million people visited our site in 2017 so far. We’re especially proud of that as all of our content is about local issues, happenings and people
We started this because we were tired of seeing more of the same in Detroit media, and thought there were many stories not told or not told in a way that people will pay attention.
We wanted to take a fresh, fair, and meaningful approach to informing Metro Detroiters about their region told in voice we could relate to.
We Love Local
We know our readers want to hear from local business, so our goal is to create advertising so remarkable that our audience would be angry if it went away. To us, it’s not just a necessary evil that pays for our work, but a valuable opportunity to make our work better, and help build the profiles of our partners.
The types of ways we could work together for sponsorships:
- Banner ads (competitively priced, but not dirt cheap)
- Email newsletter
- Brand partnerships
- Podcasts (the Daily Detroit Happy Hour reaches thousands of people each week, and we’re planning more)
- Events (we can work together to make an event that pushes Detroit’s discussion forward and highlights your organization)
