Interested in becoming a Healthy Living Blogs sponsor?
HLB is a new kid on the block, but it’s designed to be an extremely interactive website. We offer a place for readers and bloggers to visit frequently for posts from others, spend some time in the discussion boards, and discover new blogs. I’m sure there are questions to be had, so here are some answers!
Who can sponsor?
Anyone who is interested in advertising anything to do with a healthy lifestyle. It can be a fitness product, food product, coaching company, a healthy lifestyle blog, a blogger resource, anything – just as long as it pertains to a healthy lifestyle. This is the best way to keep HLB a streamlined, happy, healthy place for all of our guests, and to generate as much interest as possible in your product.
What’s in it for sponsors?
Each sponsor will have their ad spot in the HLB sidebar (currently 150×240 and 150×150 pixels are the only ad sizes we’re offering). Additionally, once a month we’ll do a round up post of our sponsors and sing your praises! The great thing about this is that not only will the round up post be viewed by those who are reading from aggregate sites, such as Google Reader, but the support round up you’re featured in will live on forever in the HLB archives.
Finally, we’ll also spread the word about you via our Sponsors page, where we have monthly updates that share information about your company, including information about any special products, pictures, discounts you’re offering HLB readers, etc.
How much does sponsorship cost?
Currently all ad spots are available for only $50 per month. Everything listed above as a sponsorship perk is what is included for all sponsors on a monthly basis. Currently payments can only be accepted through PayPal. Rates are not guaranteed for future months. However, if you would like to “lock-in” at a rate, you can pay ahead for up to six months.
What do we need to get started?
Simply send an email to email@example.com which includes the following information and we’ll get back to you confirming your advertising spot along with an invoice via PayPal:
- Email Subject Line: ADVERTISING
- Company Name
- Company Information (location, products, services, website, etc. Please limit to under 5o words.)
- Company visual ad (300 x up to 300 pixels)
- Length of desired advertising commitment
- Invoice recipient’s email address
- Any info on discounts you can offer HLB readers as an incentive
What if I just want to sponsor a giveaway?
We’re quite picky about the types of giveaways we promote on HLB. We prefer giveaways be from our sponsors, and if it’s not from a sponsor, the giveaway must be pretty awesome and applicable. If you want to do a giveaway on HLB, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- the details of the prize item/ gift certificate
- the product name and description
- the shipping area
- the details for winners to receive their prizes (Do you only need an email address?)
- any extra information/ photos you’d like to include, including if you have any stipulations for rules for the running of the contest (generally a comment on the post is an entry to the giveaway)
If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com.
