French News Online
is a digital e-magazine offering a comprehensive perspective of French news and lifestyle in English – we present magazine style reports and features about France via broad sections that cover culture, leisure, living and lifestyle.We deliver on a sustainable, eco-friendly, multi-media platform.
Our loyal audience comprises, in the majority, Francophile readers in North America followed by a large and growing broadband-connected population in France for whom English is either mother tongue, or a widely used working language and readers from the UK. Our site seeks to be without bias towards any one home nation among a multilingual and multi-national readership.
Apart from the UK, the English-speaking community in France for instance comprises people from many walks of life and many countries including, but not exclusively: Ireland, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, the Netherlands, the Scandinavian arc, Asia and Latin America. Readers of this site also include a growing number of French speakers keen to enhance their use of English.

Advertising on French News Online is a unique opportunity to reach out in France and beyond, to a high net worth community, that communicates through English and resides, owns second homes in, or takes frequent holidays across France. As such we offer a rifle-shot opportunity to reach a highly desirable niche market.

Section Sponsorships:
Sponsors who contract for a 12-month package enjoy branding opportunities and brand exposure directly via sponsor ads; links on pages where articles relate to sponsor business; a sponsor’s page containing sponsor-provided editorial and links back to sponsor websites.
