1. How to schedule a sponsorship?

A few steps:
  1. You email us what you will promote and what is your budget.
  2. We email you an insertion order that doubles as a contract and invoice (via PayPal).
  3. You pay and email us ad images, texts, and urls.
  4. We set up ads and send you a performance report for you to track.

2. Can we run multiple ads with different images / texts at the same time?


3. Why do you require minimum spend $2,000?

We run website banner ads, which is good for brand awareness. But if your ads don't get enough impressions, they won't be effective.

4. Can we do any kind of targeting?

You can choose to target all visitors, United States visitors, or English-speaking visitors. You can also target to visitors on mobile devices only.
