Dawn Nicole Designs® (DND) Partner Program
Ad Space + Sponsorship Options
I very carefully chose companies and brands to promote on my site. I will only work with brands who I feel are an extremely good fit for my site and my readers.
I believe this is better for my readers, the integrity of my brand, and for your brand, as I’ll be promoting a company I truly love (you!) and you’ll be reaching an audience full of creative people directly in your niche (who trust and value my opinion)!
It’s a win-win situation. You get exposure and I get to personally connect my readers with awesome brands they’ll love!
Readership + Reach
Last updated January 2018
Here is a breakdown of the social media channels in which I’m offering ad space and/or sponsorship options:
Site Monthly Page Views: 600k-1 Million+
Collective Social/Email Reach: nearly 400k!
Email List: 40K* (35-50% Open Rate).
*My list was 82K but I cleaned out inactive subscriber to increase engagement and open rates.
Klout Score: 75 (which puts me in the top 10% of social media users)
Media kit available upon request.
- Prices shown are per month.
- Ad space will be invoiced via PayPal and must be paid in full prior to the month in which the ad(s) will start or per agreed upon contract terms. I can also invoice via a PDF created via Quickbooks sent via email.
- If you commit to an ad space or package, I will not run ads for companies that would be considered your direct competition on the sidebar of your blog post. For example, if you’re a brush lettering marker company, I will not accept ads the same month from a competing company. If there is any doubt about what qualifies as a competing brand, I will run this by you first.
- If you are interested in long-term advertising, we can discuss a discounted rate for 3-month (5% off), 6-month (10% off) or 1-year ad space (20% off). As my social reach grows, advertising prices will grow as well, so a long-term commitment will lock in the lower rates for the duration of your long-term ad space.
- All social media will include #ad, #sponsor, or a note that you are a DND partner to comply with disclosure laws.
- Blog post links in sponsored posts will be no-follow for the same reason.
- You can provide the ad or we can work together to design an ad(s) that fits my site’s aesthetic, content I know my readers respond to, and that meets your brand’s needs.
