Text And Banner Ads
For all text and banner ads, the following discounts from the base rate are already applied:
5% off a 90-day ad
10% off a 180-day ad
15% off a 360-day ad
Additionally, if you choose to subscribe and allow your ad placement to automatically renew (which I highly recommended to ensure that you don’t lose your spot and save you the time and hassle of having to come back repeatedly!) you can use coupon code “subscribe” to receive an additional 15% off your purchase!
Above Blog Posts and Below Blog Posts ads are visible above and below every blog post on the site. 2 ads are sold for each slot though only 1 is visible at a time (so your ad will be rotated with another ad when the page is refreshed).
The Featured Sponsor ad is the largest of the sidebar ads (at 300×300) and has a prominent place above the fold. 2 ads are sold for each slot though only 1 is visible at a time (so your ad will be rotated with another ad when the page is refreshed).
The Mid-Sidebar ads are a more economical ad placement directly below the Featured Sponsor ads. At 150×150 there is room for 6 ads, which are visible 100% of the time.
The “Gold” Featured Retailer Database Position is sold as a text ad – this allows me to gather the necessary information from you so that I can move your listing in the Cloth Diaper Retailers Database into the first 5 rows. Companies listed highest in the database are viewed the most and therefore tend to get the greatest number of clicks.
Companies are entered into the database at position 5, and move towards position 1 as retailers in the ad spots above them expire. (This rewards companies who purchase longer ad lengths!)
Because this is an unorthodox “ad”, stats tracking is not available through the ad purchase system (so ignore that option when you make your purchase!). If you’d like to track the clicks on your link, please make a note of that in the “tooltip text” section and I can create a bit.ly link to enable you to do so.
Have a product, website, or store that you’d love to tell my readers about? Since I am cutting back almost entirely on diaper reviews, Sponsored Posts are now the best way to reach my readers with information you want them to know about! After you purchase the ad I’ll contact you for any information I need to write the post. (If you want to save some money, write the article yourself and send me the text and any graphics you want to include! Use coupon code “myself” for $25 off the purchase price).
Want me to run a giveaway on my blog or social media channels to bring attention to your business or product? You provide the prize (minimum retail value of $15) and I’ll do the rest! After you purchase the ad I will contact you to work out the details.
If there is an ad placement you are interested in but do not see listed, please email me at email@example.com and I will do my best to accommodate you! If you run into any difficulties purchasing an ad, I can also send you a PayPal invoice if you prefer!
