Our Vision

We see a future where every cybersecurity practitioner and organisation has a platform they can use to amplify their voice. Everyone has the ability to publish content on KBI.Media and it will appear without favour, and based on the merit of the ideas within.

Comparing Your Options

There are tonnes of ways to promote your business online: 

  • Sponsored Content
  • Running Ads; Google & Social Media
  • SEO
  • Organic Video
  • Influencers
  • Events
  • Cold Outreach

All of them are expensive and/or incredibly time-consuming.

  • Sponsored content is often thousands of dollars for a single article, instead of publishing dozens for a fixed monthly fee
  • Ads are a notorious way to dump money into creative assets and management fees, let alone advertising costs themselves!
  • SEO is great! But it is incredibly labour-intensive and requires a specialist skill-set that still might fail if not water-tight.
  • Organic videos on YouTube etc are incredibly powerful when they work. part science, part art, mostly luck.
  • Influencers are over-priced and have little understanding of technical spaces. In a cynical industry it’s a bad idea.
  • Events – both live events and online – can be a great way to generate leads. But they’re gone in a blink and cost a tonne.
  • Cold outreach is hit & miss. Done well, it’s a great way to start conversations, but requires a lot of planning & effort

A Different Approach – PriorityPartners

We don’t do sponsored content – we think it’s going to be a short-lived format. Many people are already adopting the default behaviour of skipping past anything that’s sponsored. And we don’t do paywalls for our readers. Denying people critical information is fundamentally wrong.

Instead, KBI.Media has designed a new way of commercialisation – by blending traditional sponsorship options with a unique publishing system to provide a more granular level of audience connection, and more formats to promote your organisation in an ethical way.

What Being A Priority Partner Looks Like

Featured in our Newsletter BodyX

Brand Visibility

If you have a particular niche within security that you’re addressing, be it Network Security, IoT, DevSecOps, or myriad other, you can effectively choose a category and own that real estate.

You effectively chose a category page that will then feature your logo and company description at the top, including an active backlink directly to your site.

Your brand will be seen more often, and associated with your primary area of speciality within cybersecurity.

While content from organisations other than yours will feed through the same page, you will be the headline act! Moreover, your stream will contain any press releases, written articles, or even links to video or podcasts that you wish, and even ‘sticky’ posts that will stay at the top of the category page.

Secondly, as a Priority Partner, you also have a dedicated column on the main page of KBI.Media that links to your Category page. That way, even the most casual of our readers are routinely exposed to your logo in association with your domain of expertise.

We will work with you to ensure that you’re getting maximal value from your place on the site, and regular reporting & analytics on the performance of your assets. 

Front Page Column Association

Column Insertion

On the main home page of KBI.Media and any category parent pages (likes Business News or Technology News) your logo appears right next to the category title. Our reader will come to associate your brand with that expertise.

Power Posting

As a Priority Partner, you’re gaining access to the priority queue. We receive dozens and dozens of articles and press releases every day. They all need to be QA’d and often re-formatted to fit within our Publishing Guidelines. Our Partners are always at the top of the priority list, being published faster and more widely, with additional steps taken to maximise impact.

As a Priority Partner, your organisation also gets it’s own author account to publish under, rather than having to submit a Guest Author account for attribution every time. This is great for publishing Reports & Predictions that are more company-wide than the work of a single person. Moreover, it’s especially handy when posting other formats than Articles, like Jobs or Events.

Given our expertise in writing technical content, once we have you onboard, we can augment your SEO efforts, and provide additional editing options that tie-in to your SEO strategies. And given our rising DA/DR, backlinks from us to some of your content crown jewels gives you an outsourced SEO partner. This is incredibly valuable for start-ups and for enterprise organisations alike, especially when chasing long-tail keywords as part of a larger SEO strategy.

Other People’s Posting

Our podcasts attract a global audience. With KBKast being in the Top 5% of all podcasts (not just in cyber or even tech) featuring powerhouse talent from some of the largest organisations, our primary demographic is ‘Tech Executive Leadership’ – a highly relevant target audience for any cybersecurity organisation.

Our staff writers at KBI, as well as our Contributors and researchers are prolific in their writing, and becoming increasingly so. When they need a quote or comment on a particular topic, the first people we reach out to for an attributable quote are subject matter experts from our Priority Partners. Cudos from the publishing of articles, with a fraction of the effort.

Additional Services

We’ve launched our Event Promotion services in March 2024, giving our Priority Partners untethered access to promote their in-real-life events, as well as online events like webinars, summits, keynotes, career fairs, and so on. To publish, it’s as easy as filling out a form with the details, and then hitting submit to promote your event to the KBI.Media audience.

Similarly, we’ve also launched our Job Board, offering a novel way to ensure your job ads are getting in front of the right people. If you’re after an expert in Critical Infrastructure, there’s a very good chance that the person reading articles and listening to podcast episodes on our Critical Infrastructure page might be interested!

Late 2024 we’ll be launching the KBI.Academy – an online learning repository where anyone can publish their courses in (and adjacent to) security niches. Further, these can be housed inside our servers, or link directly to those of our Priority Partners, tapping into a global audience that’s already demonstrating they want to stay informed.
