Does your company or organization want to reach our 46,000 members? We have paid promotional opportunities to fit most budgets that include in person engagement, print and digital reach. The money that MSTA receives from advertising and sponsorship is used to enhance and expand the opportunities and services we provide our members.

In Person

Save the date for the 2019 MSTA convention which will be held November 14-15 in Columbia, MO at the Holiday Inn Executive Center. This two day event brings together over 1000 educators from across the state for our annual business meeting and free professional development opportunities.  We have 50 exhibit spots available that start at $450 on up.  Unlike most conferences and trade shows, our expo hall is located directly adjacent to our main meeting area so we have a much better pipeline of participants that come through.  For more information or to reserve your spot in this opportunity, please contact Joe Pallikkathayil at 573-808-7159.

Not all digital options are created the same which is why we have multiple digital reach options for advertisers to reach our audience.

Weekly Bytes

Weekly Bytes is our weekly email newsletter. It is sent to nearly 36,000 of our members and averages a 30% open rate. We offer a single 440×150 banner spot in each edition of Weekly Bytes that MSTA sends out. These spots are allocated on a first-reserved basis.  An ad in Weekly Bytes costs $250.  We provide advertisers with an update on opens and clicks the week following their message. Artwork and URL is due to MSTA by Monday at 2pm CST the week an ad intends to run. For more information or to reserve your spot in an upcoming Weekly Bytes, please contact Joe Pallikkathayil at 573-808-7159.

Custom Email Blasts

If you want more messaging power than a banner ad in Weekly Bytes offers, consider purchasing a custom email blast. We charge a fee of $3,600 to email our entire MSTA member mailing list, or about $0.10 per contact.  Perhaps you are only interested in a smaller segment of members, we can send a targeted message by age or location.  We charge $0.15 per contact in a targeted email with a minimum of $1000.  Advertisers are allowed to email the same audience once quarterly.  For more information or to purchase an email blast (2 weeks advanced notice required from push date), please contact Joe Pallikkathayil at 573-808-7159. Banner Ads

We average between 2,000 – 5,000 ad impressions per day on  MSTA rewards advertisers who spend over $1,000 with us with a quarterly spot on our website’s ad rotator.  The more a group invests in advertisement, the more frequently their ad is displayed throughout our site.
