We have welcomed over 300 new to STV advertisers since launching the STV Growth Fund in 2018, and this year we want to welcome you.
Working with the Growth Fund is easy. You work directly with one of our team who partner with you to understand your objectives, who you want to reach and how much you want to spend. From there we collaborate together to find the marketing solutions that are going to help you reach Scots and grow your business.
Over 95% of our members work with us on a match funding basis. This means that we contribute to your campaign to give you more airtime for your same budget. To explore this and other options that might be right for you download our brochure or get in touch to chat through how the Growth Fund could work specific to your business with one of our team who will scope out options bespoke to you.
As an extension of the STV Growth Fund, we have launched our Green Fund and Local Lifeline campaigns as part of our commitment to driving the Scottish economy.
STV Green Fund
We have committed £1m of STV advertising airtime to make TV advertising more accessible for Scottish businesses championing sustainability.
We are offering £100,000 of gifted STV Growth Fund memberships to businesses championing diversity.
We launched the Local Lifeline in 2020 to provide charities and local businesses impacted by the pandemic free on-air and online advertising.

When it comes to business we understand it’s all about the numbers.
STV reaches a massive 80% of Scots every month and we are one of the most trusted TV channels in Scotland according to Ofcom. We work with you to efficiently target your marketing to make sure that you are getting the most return on your investment.
Our campaigns are bespoke, just like your objectives and the budget varies based on:
For example a one week on-air campaign on STV with a 30 second commercial would cost from:
West £7.9k | East £4.1k | Aberdeen £3k | Dundee £1.7k
This campaign would appear across: daytime in shows such as This Morning and Loose Women; peak programming such as Coronation Street and STV News at Six and in Late Night. The mix of premium content that Scots love across our schedule means that you are able to maximise the reach of your business and connect with consumers quickly.
