Do you want to support my efforts to keep the resources and content of the resources portal at fresh and up-to-date? You can help by sponsoring sections of the website. In return, will the sponsorship help your branding efforts and drive new business to your site via either a text link or a banner ad, which I will place on the pages that you sponsor. caters to marketing professionals and if that is your target audience, then you looking at the right place to get access to them. is the right kind of website for B2B marketing and advertising. If you are looking for B2C advertising opportunities, I would suggest looking elsewhere to spend your advertising budget on, unless marketing professionals are exactly the right kind of demographics, who you like to target with your consumer offers.

To keep maintenance and management simple and to be transparent about the sponsorship system, did I create a limited set of available sponsorship options and categorized them by "What to sponsor" and "How to sponsor".

Formats (How to sponsor)

  1. Text link in upper left side of the page
  2. Standard size banner ad (468x60 or 728x90) at the top of the page beneath top navigation and title, above table of contents or page content itself. NO Flash (because it interferes with the site navigation), animated GIF is okay.
  3. Standard size button ad (125x125) in the upper left side of the page beneath text ads. Flash is okay.
  4. Standard size skyscraper ad (120x600) in the lower left side of the page after newsletter sign-up and events calendar (if present). Flash is okay.

Payment Links for Paypal (month-to-month)

Before you signup for any of the subscriptions, contact me first to ensure inventory availability. This is especially important for sponsorships that go beyond individual resources pages, such as section or more so site wide sponsorships.

I suggest to use the subscription options only when I sent you the invoice with confirmation.

Also keep in mind that I review sponsors and sponsor offers first and only accept those that provide value to my visitors and are targeted for my audience. If you subscribe without my prior acknowledgement and aproval, I will consider the payment to be a donation (because I also have this option available to support my efforts).

Option Amount  
Single Page Text Link Sponsorship $50/Month
Single Page 120x600 Skyscraper Ad Sponsorship $60/Month
Single Page 125x125 Button Ad Sponsorship $75/Month
Single Page Full Size Banner Ad Sponsorship $100/Month
Section Sponsorship Subscriptions
Section Text Link Sponsorship $150/Month
Section 120x600 Skyscraper Ad Sponsorship $175/Month
Section 125x125 Button Ad Sponsorship $200/Month
Section Full Size Banner Ad Sponsorship $300/Month

Note: Subscriptions auto-renew monthly and have no end date. The sponsorship can be terminated at any time by cancelling the PayPal subscription. The links will remain up for the remainder of the already paid 30 days period (monthly). There will be no refunds for already paid subscription fees.

2nd Note: Subscription options via PayPal for site wide sponsorships are currently not available, because I don't believe that you would like to pay for that kind of sponsorship via PayPal. However, if you do want to pay it via PayPal, please let me know and I will make the necessary arangements for you.
