“GSN Homeland Security Insider” Newsletter:
The GSN daily e-newsletter reaches a growing circulation of 40,000 recipients every business day. This audience is partially composed of subscribers to the monthly print edition, but the remainder of the circulation is composed of individuals around the world who opted-in through the GSN Web site.
The e-newsletter offers towers, banners, medium rectangle advertisements, plus a special lead-generating advertising configuration called the “Sponsored Product Advertisement.” In this configuration, the advertiser need only furnish a headline, a logo, 70 words of copy and a URL.
GSN’s Lead-Generating E-mail Broadcasts:
These lead-generating vehicles are sent out on a daily basis to the GSN proprietary e-mail list of 40,000. No more than one broadcast per day is permitted for any of these products. A huge extra benefit for advertisers using these lead-gen products is that, after the initial broadcast, the White Papers, products or Webinars are promoted on the GSN Web site for an entire year.
GSN Homeland Security Awards Program
The Annual GSN Homeland Security Awards Program was designed to salute the dedicated government officials at federal, state and local levels, who have come up with outstanding homeland security projects and initiatives, as well as the innovative vendors of IT and Physical Security products and solutions, who produce the amazing technologies which protect our nation around the clock.
GSN’s First Annual Awards Program, 38 Awards were presented on Octcober 27, 2009 to a sold-out ballroom at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York, concluding with a presentation of the Fred V. Morrone Award to Ms Fran Townsend, who had been homeland security advisor in the George W. Bush White House. In 2010, 45 Awards were presented at a dinner which took place at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Washington, DC, at which four star General Barry McCaffrey (US Army-Ret) was presented with GSN’s 2011 Award for “Extraordinary Leadership and Service in Homeland Security.” Then, in 2011, the First Annual GSN/Raytheon Award for Distinguished Leadership and Innovation was presented to Admiral Thad Allen (US Coast Guard-Ret), for his exceptional service in leading the Coast Guard’s response to two separate disasters, Hurricane Katrina in 2009 and the BP Oil Spill in 2010.
