I have begun to sell ad space on this blog. It started in late April, and I love having amazing sponsors! They make blogging more fun! I've learned some things from those who I sponsor, or whose blogs I get ad space on from giveaways. One of my FAVORITE blogs to sponsor is Lipgloss and Crayons. Not only is Carly a Christian and teacher like me, she is an INCREDIBLE blog hostess with the mostess! When my ad first got on her blog, she emailed me right away with a form to fill out on getting to know me and my blog, and asking if and what I want to contribute to her monthly sponsor group giveaway. She also sent a personal email welcoming me to her blog, and getting to know me. THEN, at the beginning of every week she sends an email to all her sponsors asking what posts of ours to promote that week on social media! WHOA! I feel so special sponsoring her blog!
That is exactly the feeling I want my sponsors to feel after sponsoring my blog- that their ad space was a good investment, and that not only did their blog/shop get more attention, we have become friends! So last week I updated a bit, and sent out a form for all my sponsors asking about their blog/shop, their social media outlets, group giveaway, and guest posting on the blog. And I'm trying to get better about connecting with them, and promoting them!
So, why do I post all of this? Because I want YOU! I would love to have your ad on my blog for the summer! My blog is growing, and my readership is expanding with a couple of big blogger giveaways I am a part of within the next month. I want to promote your blog/shop, and get to know you! Right now, I'm having a promotion:
You do not even have to use a promo code! Just buy ad space of any size for one month, and I'll add a second month free! Then we can party all summer long together! Here is my ad shop. Click on the pink button to the right of the ad spot you want, and you can upload your ad, and pay for one month. I would love to have any blogs and shops as sponsors! I also love to do reviews, so if your shop needs an extra boost, email me, and I'll review what I feel will be appropriate for my blog and readers. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at allieelliott(AT)yahoo.com.
