Advertise on GrowMap
NEW 10/01/12: GrowMap.com is now accepting paid advertising purchased through CrankyAds. Please see our disclosure policy for differences between sites appearing on GrowMap that we choose to recommend and paid ad spots.
In the past I had an unusual advertising policy on GrowMap. I chose the companies, products, solutions and causes I believe benefit others and offered to allow them to support my efforts through either a donation or buying advertising.
My most loyal primary audience is social media savvy influential bloggers and bloggers I mentor in niche industry and geo-targeted collaborations. In 2012 I will be focusing on doing more guest posting on major sites whose primary audience is small business owners, managers and employees.
If you are interested in advertising to bloggers and social media enthusiasts with expanding influence, please consider purchasing banner ads. Current rates are as follows:
- $50 per month for a 125 x 125 banner ad in the center sidebar of website.
- $75 per month for a 468 x 60 banner ad at the bottom of each post in single post pages.
- 728×90 above the header $125 per month
- 300×250 Featured ad at the top of the right sidebar $150 per month
Rates can be locked in for three months with a 10% discount from the total cost, six months with a 15% discount from the total cost, or one year with a 20% discount from the total cost when paid in advance.
If you are interested in the above or additional advertising options, please use the contact information on my contact tab.
IMPORTANT: Because many of our ad spaces rotate affiliate banners I can usually free up ad spots – so if you desire more than the number shown available below OR the ad space you want indicates SOLD OUT – contact me to discuss opening up that space so that you can buy it through CrankyAds.
