What Does Sponsorship Look Like

You can include a brief blurb (400-600 characters) about your company, product, event, or job opening.

The blurb will be placed in a clearly demarcated section, and will be included in the following:

  1. The newsletter sent to CloudSecList subscribers.
  2. The related post on cloudseclist.com (available from the Past Issues page).

Currently, two sponsor slots (1 and 2) are available per issue. Slot 1 is placed at the top of the newsletter, directly after the introduction, whereas slot 2 is placed around the middle.

You can look at what this will look like by browsing the Past Issues.

What Content Performs The Best?

CloudSecList's readers are a highly engaged and targeted audience. Hence, the sponsors that get the best traction can offer something beyond their standard branding messaging.

The best performers have content similar to the following:

  • Webinars
  • Workshops
  • Fireside Chats
  • Whitepapers or eBooks
  • Emerging research or technical posts breaking down a complex topic
  • Industry or "State of the [X]" style reports

It is also important to note that the number of clicks through to your ad is influenced by: your offer, the quality of your ad copy, and the wording in your CTA.

Get Started

The process is quite straightforward:

  • Find an available slot
    Check the "Upcoming Reservations" list below for available slots.
  • Reach out to [email protected]
    Send your product/event/job advert idea, alongside your organizational details, and we'll work out the details.
  • We will flesh out the details
    We will agree on dates, number of slots and price (discounts may be available for bulk sponsorships).
  • I will send a lightweight agreement
    Which will recap the details agreed upon.
  • We will work together on defining the best format for your sponsored messages
    We will collaborate on the best format/content for your adverts before each agreed issue is released.

Upcoming Reservations

"Which is the 'optimum' week to book?" This varies depending on each company's preference. For example, some companies decide to book in correspondence with the release of a new product or the weeks before an event they host. So that depends on the content you choose to promote. That said, I typically see a pattern of companies booking one slot per month for at least two consecutive quarters.

Terms and Conditions


CloudSecList takes the privacy of readers very seriously. There is a conscious effort NOT to collect additional information about the CloudSecList readership outside of an email address (which, of course, will NOT be shared with advertisers, ever). In addition, CloudSecList does not track individual open and click rates, but only the global (and anonymized) ones.

For more information, you can refer to CloudSecList's Privacy Policy.

Integrity and Unbiased View

I want to make it clear that, for me, it is of paramount importance for sponsorships not to impact the quality or unbiased nature of CloudSecList negatively.

I generally do not endorse companies or products. CloudSecList aims to highlight security-related news focused on the cloud-native landscape and help people stay updated with this corner of the security scenario. Content is included in the newsletter exclusively based on its technical merits and usefulness to readers.

Sponsoring an issue does not give any influence on the rest of the newsletter. A competitor's tool, blog post, or talk may be referenced in the issue you sponsor. Similarly, an article that negatively covers your company or product may be included in the issue you sponsor.

Ad Timing

The newsletter is typically sent on Sundays. There may be weeks where the newsletter is sent earlier or later due to life circumstances, travel, or timezone differences, but this is the exception, not the rule.

Ad Format

You can include a brief blurb (400-600 characters) about your company, product, event, or job opening.

The blurb will be placed in a clearly demarcated section (the yellow sponsor box). The naming "Sponsor" at the top of the sponsor box is agnostic of the actual sponsor and is used for consistency and fairness to the readers.
