Happy Halloweekend 🙂
I can’t believe today is already the last day of October. I feel like the month just started! But since November is literally knocking on our door, I thought this would be a great time to break down some of the Sponsor options on AYTJ.
When I first started blogging, I looked at the “advertise/sponsor” tabs on other blogs and literally LOL’d. I thought it was crazy that people actually paid REAL MONEY for a little promo on someone’s blog. I didn’t get why people cared so much about page views and gaining followers. It was a complete waste as far as I was concerned. Boy, was I wrong!
The first time I sponsored a blog, I went in expecting to wake up to 50 billion page views and at least a million new followers, at minimum. Needless to say, that’s not exactly what happened. I learned quickly that it’s not enough to just randomly send someone cash and a link button and expect magic to happen. Let’s be honest guys – you put in just as much work as a sponsor as the blogger that you’re sponsoring does. You have to maintain your own blog, keep producing creative and quality content, and maximize your sponsorships as much as you can. It can become a lot, really fast, and I understand that.
So when I decided to start offering sponsorships on my own blog, I knew I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, and only offer things I really believe are beneficial. You might notice that none of my sponsor packs come with group giveaway options. Only because I’m not really a huge fan of them, I don’t usually participate in them even when I sponsor other blogs. They definitely work to get your numbers up, not to mention they are super FUN for readers and visitors, but they can also get overwhelming.
Let’s break down sponsoring And Yes To Joy…
Large – 2 Spots Open for November!
Large ad sponsors are those beautiful faces you see at the top of the sponsor column. These sponsors have the largest ad size, and get a good amount of perks. In addition to the largest ad size, you also get the option to guest post and get a full sponsor spotlight like this one I did for Nicole of Treasure Tromp or this one I did for Crystal of The Happy Type.
** Special Deal ** The next 3 people to purchase a large ad receive an additional month with all of the same perks FOR FREE!!
Medium – 3 Spots Open for November!
These ads appear right below the medium sponsors! Some of my current medium ad sponsors include Laura of Inspiration.Sparks and Codi of The Art of Balance! These sponsors receive lots of social media love, and a sponsor spotlight at the end of a post.
Small – 5 Spots open for November
If you’re looking for a little face time without all of the extra accessories, this is the package for you! Small sponsors receive an ad towards the end of the sponsor column, and a social media introduction on Twitter and Facebook!
** SPECIAL DEAL ** The Next 3 people to purchase a small ad space will have their sponsorship extended 2 weeks!!
** EVEN SWEETER DEAL** Everyone who purchases a sponsor spot (of any size) in November will receive a special sneak peak of a project I’m working on at the end of the month 🙂
