In all, that is thousands of potential traffic to your site if you choose to advertise with me.
The cost for a monthly ad is $75. I will accept six to eight ads per month. They will appear in the sidebar and above the fold. No animation is allowed in the ads. I must approve each ad and it must be related or semi-related to the creative content found on this blog. The ads are first come first serve and are placed in the sidebar in that order.
While I can make no guarantee that your ad will drive traffic to your site, I can guarantee that I will blog about your product, service or company once during each respective month that your ad appears on this blog. That is what will bring value and traffic to your paid sponsorship. That post will be shared into my Google Buzz, Facebook and Twitter accounts and any other sites that I’m a member of and have the capability of feeding into and it will be indexed by search engines. I do not delete blog posts. And since I’ve been blogging for over five years it’s not likely that I’ll quit anytime soon.
My readers are interested in art, illustration and in how it’s created. They appreciate that I list the supplies I use or companies that I work with within their respective blog posts. They are interested in real life stories and drama. They love colour and stories of hope and perseverance. They are a mix of young and old and women and men alike.
Keep in mind that just because this independently published blog is smaller than the big ole guy’s blog’s it doesn’t mean that this blog doesn’t give value to the growth of your product, company or service. I am transparent, authentic and honest.
