Detailed Description of Promotional Solutions

Sponsored Features

  • What are sponsored features?
    Sponsored features (see recent examples of sponsored features here) are articles or videos that look and feel the same way as ordinary IMI posts, except that the sponsor decides the content. This can take the form of text, images, video, or any combination thereof. The sponsor provides the content, upon which IMI will review for grammar, syntax, spelling, etc.
  • Who will I reach with a sponsored feature?
    Sponsored features are shared on all our platforms, including, IMI’s social network account (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter), in our weekly and daily newsletters, as well as with our 5,000-subscriber strong WeChat audience (translation to Mandarin Chinese is included in the price).

Banner ads

  • What are banner ads?
    Banners are image-based ads that, when clicked, take the reader directly to the website of the advertiser. Banners can appear in the right-hand sidebar of the front page and/or in our weekly newsletter.
  • Who will I reach with a banner ad?
    Anyone who visits the front page of and/or receives the weekly email newsletter.

Featured event

  • What is a featured event?
    Featured events are essentially the same as banner ads (see above), except that, instead of appearing on the front page, they appear at the top of our Events section and in our weekly newsletter. The IMI Events section is consistently one of our most visited pages. That’s because it is home to the world’s only comprehensive aggregation of investment migration events from across the globe. Every month, thousands of potential event attendees visit our Events section to browse through our event lists and calendars. To make sure your event stands out, you can purchase a Featured Event.
  • Who will I reach with a featured event?
    You will reach anyone visiting the IMI Events section and anyone subscribing to our weekly newsletter.

RCBI-Directory promotions

  • What are RCBI-Directory promotions?
    The Residence & Citizenship by Investment Company Directory is the world’s only comprehensive database of investment migration firms. It contains the contact details and other info on some 1,000 service providers from the residence and citizenship by investment industry. There are two ways of standing out from the crowd:

    1) Get a featured listing. Featured listings always appear first in search results in the directory and, on average, get about 300% more views than non-featured listings.

    2) Become a Highlighted Service Provider. Highlighted service providers appear all the way at the top, above all other listings (even featured ones), irrespective of search filters.
  • Who will I reach with RCBI-Directory promotions?
    Everyone that visits the RCBI-Directory.

Program Page Sponsorships

  • What is a program page sponsorship?
    On IMI, each residence and citizenship by investment program has their own Program Page. See examples here, here, and here. Program pages contain recent articles, statistics, official links, FAQs, real estate listings, and more, for each particular program. Each program page has only one single sponsor. The sponsor provides a program overview (see an example here) and a program FAQ (see an example here), as well as the company’s logo and contact details, all of which are published on the program page. Becoming a program page sponsor makes your company an authority on that particular program and makes it the natural entity with whom to get in touch for further inquiry.
  • Who will I reach with a program page sponsorship?
    Everyone that visits a particular program page, usually by following the links IMI includes in news stories about that particular program or by clicking one of the program pages in the top menu.

IMI Real Estate Featured Listings

  • What is an IMI Real Estate Featured Listing?
    IMI Real Estate is an online property listing page dedicated exclusively to real estate that helps the buyer qualify for residence/citizenship by investment. Developers are welcome to list any qualifying property for free. If you want your property to stand out, you can purchase a featured listing.

CBI Real Estate Watch Banners

  • What are CBI Real Estate Watch Banners?
    CBI Real Estate Watch is a community-driven platform for keeping track of the approved projects of citizenship by investment programs. It monitors approved CBI developments for construction updates so that visitors can see if projects are being built or not. There is room for one banner for each country, a space suitable for approved CBI real estate developments.
  • Who will I reach with a CBI Real Estate Watch Banner?
    Anyone visiting the CBI Real Estate Watch Page.

Cost-Efficient Promo Packages

At Investment Migration Insider, we offer a wide variety of promotional solutions. Negotiating these marketing agreements each time you want to promote an event or a service is time-consuming – for you and for us – and takes focus away from our respective main businesses.

To make things simpler, we’ve created three standard packages that specifically cater to the needs of different sub-groups within the industry; Agents, developers, and event organizers.

We also have a fourth bundle, called the IMI Preferred Partner package. This package is suitable for service providers interested in forming a long term relationship with IMI, with the flexibility that affords. The package gives companies the opportunity to promote their brand across all the key areas of our site, maximize exposure, and save up to 67% off retail prices by entering into bulk agreements.

Note: “Like-for-like” exchanges are possible: Promotional items of similar value are interchangeable. For example, if your package includes 4 sponsored articles and 4 frontpage banners, you could swap and use 8 of one and none of the other if you find that one is more useful.

Custom packages
If your needs don’t fit neatly into any of our packages, you can still enjoy considerable discounts by bundling your promotional item purchases. We apply the following discount framework:

  • Orders totaling €4,500 – €5,999: 25% discount
  • Orders totaling €6,000 – €7,999: 35% discount
  • Orders totaling €8,000 or more: 50% discount

  • Who are you trying to reach? (investors, agents, or someone else?)
  • What message do you wish to convey?

IMI’s Readership Analytics

As of March 31st, 2021:

Newsletter Open and Click Rates
Readership concentrated in key investment migration hubs
Demographic distribution of readers


Eric Major, CEO, Latitude:

– Even though our team has decades of experience in the investment migration industry, when we first started Latitude, few in the industry knew about the firm. Because our business model is geared toward helping other firms in the business through B2B partnerships, we needed other industry firms to hear about Latitude quickly.

The most cost-efficient way we found to get the whole industry’s attention quickly was IMI. Within a week of our first sponsored feature, we received dozens of messages from people wanting to work with us. Advertising with IMI gave us the kick-start we needed.


Taymour Polding, Director, Apex Consultancy & Trading Group:

– In 2018, Turkey re-priced its program and became an overnight success. Suddenly, there was tremendous interest in the program. We wanted our firm to be the partner that investment migration firms contacted for their Turkey CIP needs. Since the market had essentially just opened and was already booming, we needed to act quickly to gain market share in the early stages of the program.

After some googling, we realized that the one place online where the whole industry congregated was IMI, and we secured a long-term marketing agreement that included the sponsored program page for Turkey, sponsored features, and banners. Within a few months, we were a household name among industry practitioners, and we’ve made back the money spent on advertising many times over.
