Advertising Your Business
Looking to promote your business on 518 Bites & Sights? I love working with local brands and promoting events and can’t wait to hear from you! In the past I’ve worked with: Adirondack Wine & Food Festival, Schmaltz Brewing, Adirondack Winery, Whole Foods Market, Studio 4 Hot Yoga & Pilates, Price Chopper, ShopRite, Bake For You, Gatherer’s Granola, Healthy Living Market & Cafe, Hannaford, McDonalds, etc.
If you’d like to work with me, send an email to 518BitesNSights@gmail.com. I’m always open to ideas but here are the different levels of advertisement I’ve used in the past.
CONTEST RULES AND REGULATIONS: https://518bitesandsights.com/contest-rules-regulations/
GENERAL BLOG POST: I can use material given by you paired with my own research to write a general post on your business, its history, locations, etc. This gives my readers the general overview of what you do and where they can find you. This also includes adding events to my weekly event list on Mondays & Fridays.
ADVANCED BLOG POST: I would include everything involved in a general blog post but could also include either a visit to one of your locations for a tour or personalized discussion and/or samples of your product so that I could talk in more detail.
GIVEAWAYS: I’m always open to hosting giveaways on my blog as an addition to the advanced blog post option. If it’s a product, you would need to provide me with two (2) of the product so that I can talk about it from a first hand experience. In terms of something monetary like a gift card/gift certificate, one (1) is sufficient.
ATTENDANCE: I’m available for events, media trips, etc. I will share the event on my blog as well as other social media platforms as it gets closer and can arrange for a follow-up blog post or video (usually filmed via GoPro). You will need to provide two (2) tickets as well as press parking/credentials if available.
ADVERTISING: There are a few advertising options and various ad spaces. Pricing depends on ad size and location and differ between social media platforms.
SIDE BAR– Your advertisement would be seen to the right of each and every individual blog post directly underneath my social media platforms, as shown on the left. Whenever a new post is created, that individual link is what is shared on social media as well as any shares or retweets as a result of the post by other companies.
FOOTER BAR: Your advertisement would be seen on the bottom of the front page of 518 Bites & Sights. That is also where the general menu is for location search, social media pages as well as page changes. This is the page that is linked from my business cards, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter as well as emails.
These are the two ad spaces provided by my platform for me to work with. If you’re interested in something else/another ad location, let me know and I’ll see if the code for that is possible.
Finally, though I don’t have any examples, I am open to having sponsored posts on my Twitter/Facebook/Instagram. Either specifically per event for particular events or posted at various frequencies.
