We can work with you and your business in three ways:
- Sidebar and footer advertising
Purchasing sidebar ads is straightforward. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ad choice plus appropriate image and link, and if it is deemed a good fit for our site, you will be approved quickly and your ad can be up the same day, once your paypal purchase has been cleared. You may purchase sidebar and footer spots below. We only accept family friendly ads that are a good fit for our readers.
Ad spaces for display are available in multiple 300×150 px, one large top spot of 300×300 px, or a horizontal banner (approximately 450px x 100px ) in the footer of each post right below the email link. Large ad and footer ad space purchases include a free giveaway if desired. Discounts apply to multi-month purchases. Ad spots may be purchased below.
Review & Giveaways
You can also contact me for reviews and/or giveaways to help promote your product or business. We usually work with small businesses, but larger entities are considered.
Review products must be family friendly in nature. Lake & River often focuses on environmentally conscious products with a “green” slant. This includes cloth diapers, eco-friendly clothing and related accessories, reusable cloth products, green cleaning supplies, organic products, natural bath & body, eco-friendly beauty products, and items made from recycled materials. Other children’s or household products will also be considered. Based on our keyword search stats, toys, clothing, household goods, decorating, skincare, and baby goods are popular items our audience is interested in.
Review & Giveaway promotions require a full size review item valued at $25 or more. Lesser valued products are considered on a case by case basis. If you wish for me to host and run a giveaway for you without a review, the fee is $20, or free with a large ad purchase in the sidebar. Paid giveaways without reviews may not be approved if it is not deemed a good fit for our readers.
In your email request for Lake & River to host your review or giveaway, please include a small bio of your company/brand along with basic information on the item you wish to sponsor, price range, and links to your business/store.
If your product review/giveaway is part of an event, your sponsorship will include an official review on a separate post from the giveaway. Giveaways may involve a simple comment entry or a more involved entry method via rafflecopter, giveaway tools, or other application depending on what will best suit the event of business. All entries must comply with google, Facebook, and other media guidelines.
Sponsored posts showcase a product or topic with specific guidelines dictated by the company and do not include mentions of any competing brands. A sponsored post may include a story with a mention of an agreed product or idea. It may also include a review, unboxing, and/or giveaway as well. Sponsored posts require more creativity and organic flow than basic reviews, so they require more time.
Guests posts by bloggers, aspiring writers, our readers, and select small businesses are currently free. You write it, we approve it and publish it. Guest posts must be family friendly and not contain foul language, hate speech, or promote social prejudice of any kind.
