If you haven’t noticed, I decided to offer people a couple of advertising options. Given the nature of this blog, it’s mostly aimed at indie artists, but anyone is welcome to advertise something they feel readers of this blog would benefit from.
I took this decision mostly because I’d very much like to keep having my blog powered by WordPress VIP, and take advantage of all the plugins and other options they’re going to implement in the future, most of which I have yet to explore.
Before I explain more of the advertising opportunities, I have this to say: this won’t interfere with my usual blogging, editorial policy, or whatever. Sponsored posts will be only 4 per month, and I’ll make sure they’re worth your time (that’s why I’m going to write them myself.)
That being said, there are four advertising options available:
Post Sponsor – $30 – basically this means that you offer to sponsor a certain post of mine. In return, you’ll get mentioned at the end of the post, with a short description of your website (or the website of your choosing). You can see such a post here.
Text Ad (10 spots, 8 still available) – $50/month - Your name (or your business/blog) will be listed in the sidebar, along with a short description (20 words or less) and a link to your website. You can see two such ads in my sidebar right now.
Sponsored Post* (4 spots/month) - 100$ - I will write a blog post about your blog, or review one of your books, or interview you about your art. That’s right, this post is restricted to art related blogs/websites. You choose how you want the blog post to be, and what you want to contain. Also, the post will be kept “sticky” at the top of my website for an entire week.
* Just a short disclaimer: all sponsored posts will be marked as such. Just so you know.
Graphic Ad – $250/month -A 300X250 graphic ad in the sidebar of my blog, linking to your website. I can design the ad for you, at no additional cost.
And in the interest of keeping this blog alive and updated as often as possible (to be read, buy food) I have decided to once again offer my services as a cover designer. You can check the services I provide here, which is also the only place you can order them.
There are two ways you can buy advertising on this blog:
1. Directly from my shop, here.
2. Via this Indiegogo campaign.
No matter how you buy ad space, the following thing will happen: you’ll receive an e-mail from me within 24 hours of purchase, asking you for info on what you want advertised and stuff like that. And we’ll work from there.
I’ve got until May the 2nd to renew my plan, for which I need $500. If you want to just help out, you can do so here, where you can donate and support this blog (to be read, VIP plan and food, most probably in this exact order.)
