I've been running ads in my blog sidebar for a little over a year now and it's time to make a few changes. Most of the prices are staying the same, but I'm changing a few things so my ad set-up better reflects the demand for the popular ad sizes and so that my monthly sponsor post isn't quite so huge (and is a bit easier for me to manage!)
The following changes will apply from 1st January 2014:
Featured Large Ads (200 x 200 pixels) will be going up from $20 to $30 (approx £18.75) for 30 days. The features will remain the same... Your ad will appear at the top of the sponsor ads column for maximum
visibility. Your shop/site will be the first one included in my monthly
“meet my sponsors” blog post, and I’ll include two of your product
images in the post. If you’re a new sponsor, I’ll also give your shop a
shout out on my Facebook page.
Large Ads (200 x 200 pixels) will be staying the same price ($10, approx £6.25) but there will
be ten spaces available at a time instead of five. I will also be including one product image (instead of two) when I mention your shop/site in my monthly "meet my sponsors" blog post. The large ads will continue to appear below the top "feature" ad and to shuffle automatically with every
page load. If you’re a
new sponsor I’ll also give your shop a shout out on my Facebook page.
Medium Ads (200 x 150 pixels) will be phased out. Any new medium ads (or renewals of old medium ads) purchased in 2014 will be refunded, but any medium ads purchased in 2013 will get their full run.
Small Ads (200 x 100 pixels) will be staying the same price ($5, approx £3.12) but instead of including one of your product images in my monthly "meet my sponsors" blog post I will include your ad image instead, with a simple link to your shop/site. The small ads will continue to appear below the other ads in the sponsor column and to shuffle automatically with every page load and I'll give a Facebook shout out to new sponsors.
All these changes will come into effect on 1st January 2014, but will not apply to ads purchased before this date no matter when they're scheduled to appear. So, if you want to advance book a Large Featured Ad at the current price, you can! Just purchase your ad before the end of 2013. And any large (or small) ads paid for in 2013 will have two (or one) product images included in the "meet my sponsors" blog posts for each month you've booked.
