Three AdBiblio Ad Strategies for Pride Month

Looking ahead to Pride Month? AdBiblio offers three powerful strategies for ad targeting: Foot Traffic, demographics and traits, and relevant content—to ensure your book reaches LGBTQ+ readers!


Using location-based ad software, Foot Traffic ads target real-time individuals or event attendees within a specified radius. These campaigns can also target people who have previously visited a location or event. Foot Traffic parameters can be as narrow as ten yards and as wide as 100 meters.

Here are some possibilities for displaying Foot Traffic ads to engage LGBTQ+ book readers:

  • Shoppers at over 40+ Queer-owned and/or Queer-focused bookstores like Dog Eared in San Francisco and A Room of One’s Own Madison, WI
  • LGBTQ+ readers and supporters shopping in Barnes & Noble stores
  • LGBTQ+ readers and supporters shopping in Indie bookstores like Powell’s in Portland and The Strand in New York City
  • Progressive parents, teachers and librarians in elementary, middle or high schools
  • GenZ book buyers who are LGBTQ+ readers / advocates on high school and college campuses
  • Progressive readers in zip codes with a higher than average percentage of gay residents


With our niche demographics and traits targeting, we can reach specific audiences who identify as:
