{Blended} Advertising

“Blogs will change your business.” - Business Week, May, 2005

Business Week was right – blogs are a great way to advertise your product or service. Why? There’s a few great reasons:

  • Blogs have a VERY loyal following.
  • Blogs often target a specific market better than almost any other medium.
  • Blog content is often static – it’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year as long as the site is still up.

Advertising Options

If you would like to advertise your product, website, or service on Memoirs of a Single Dad, we have a number of options available, depending on your needs. Memoirs of a Single Dad is part of a network of multiple sites (The “Memoirs Network”): Memoirs of a Single Dad, The Blended Family Blog, Man-Made Reviews, Online Dating Dummies and Late-Night Blogger. Advertisements are available for purchase on any site individually or all sites.

The entire Memoirs Network of sites receives between 20,000 – 50,000 hits per month with Memoirs of a Single Dad receiving the most. Toolbar Page Rank (PR) breakdowns are as follows (as of 1/12/13):

  • Memoirs of a Single Dad – PR3
  • The Blended Family Blog – PR1
  • Late-Night Blogger – PR2
  • Man-Made Reviews – PR2
  • Online Dating Dummies – N/A (it’s brand new)

Each site has a large quantity of content already indexed and ranking with search engines. Many of our search terms are highly coveted by websites and advertisers alike!

Text Link Ads

Your text link will be featured in the the side bar of my website – on every page of the site with a few exceptions. Text link ads should include a link and a short description. A link ad costs $30 per month and is great for raising your site’s PR through targeted keyword anchor text AND for generating traffic to your site.

Header Ads

The header is THE prime real estate on any blog. The ‘sweet spot’ is usually in the top right or left corner, “above the fold” or above where a user would have to scroll down to view it. A header ad runs for 30 days and is one of the best ways to get your product, site or service visibility. Ad space is very limited since we like to maintain a very tidy look on my sites. Again, ads are available on one or more of the Memoirs Network of sites with prices starting at just $35 per month.

Social Media Shout-Outs (Campaigns)

Twitter and Facebook are THE social media places to be. Twitter has over 200 MILLION active users while Facebook exceeds 750 MILLION. Not only do the numbers tell a tale, but both Twitter and Facebook are great ways to connect with potential customers.

The Memoirs Network has a firm presence in social media with over 12,000 combined Twitter followers and an engaged and growing Facebook following.

Social Media Campaigns are sold in packages and include four (4) Tweets (on Twitter) and one (1) post (on Facebook). Please contact me to discuss other options tailored to your specific social media needs.


Sponsored Posts

I will upload a post, either written by me or provided by you, advising my readers to check out your site/product/service because you rock. All posts are promoted on social media outlets and will be seen by hundreds of thousands of users, worldwide. Prices vary for sponsored posts depending on if the post is written by me and how much effort is required to produce and advertise the post.

Embedded Ads

Have a new banner or product image you want to show off? Provide me with a link and a banner or image and I will embed them into a post. The post will be available as long as my site is up and so will your ad. Some of my more popular posts have gotten tens of thousands of hits and continue to receive residual traffic through search engines as well.

Product Review & Giveaway

I love free stuff – who doesn’t? Working with a blog to host a product review and giveaway is a great way to generate buzz and receive an honest opinion about your product or service. The best part – the only cost is the cost of the review product(s) and the giveaways! Talk about bang for your buck…

If you have a product or service you’d like reviewed, please contact me with additional detail. Product reviews can be posted on one or all of the Memoirs Network of sites.
