By: Akimbo  09-12-2011
Keywords: Job Posting, Media Lists


  • Each e-broadcast is sent to over 8,250 subscribers specifically involved in or supporters of visual culture across Canada. Approximately 60% of subscribers are in Toronto and vicinity. People across the country like to know what you or your organization is up to - because it's just good information, or because they're travelling and they want to know what's going on in your city.
  • All content from Akimbo broadcasts is posted to our website which gets 5.4 million hits, 66,000 unique visitors and 1,104,000 page views per month.
  • Akimbo/bit e-broadcasts are an effective way to let people know about or remind them of your upcoming event, job posting or call for submissions. People pay attention to Akimbos and Akimbits and so audience numbers increase, jobs get filled faster, more submissions come in.
  • Akimbo/bit Media Lists are extensive and national, with specific penetration into Toronto. All Akimbo and Akimbits e-broadcasts are sent to our media lists, increasing the chances that your event is noted, listed, highlighted, reviewed or written about, and therefore, well attended.
  • With no design, printing, paper or postage costs, they're easy, economical and ecological too.
