Before inquiring, please review the notes below to see if your advertisements are a good fit for the site and its audience.
What kinds of ad formats do you accept?
Currently, we support the following types of ad formats:
Contextual: Your ad is a word or group of words that are linked to a website/product within an article and/or post.
Non-Contextual Text: Your ad is a link outside of an article (ex: on a widget, or directly on the homepage, or on the sidebar or footer).
Contextual Images: An image that is within an article.
Non-contextual Images: An image that is placed outside of an article (ex: in the footer, sidebar, etc).
Sponsored Post: You provide us with an article and we publish it. The article must follow our editorial policy.
Sponsored Post (written by us): We write an article about your business. The article, along with its content (text, images) offers the product for purchase through an external site.
What kind of products/websites can I advertise?
Businesses must be located within a 50-mile radius of the Great Smoky Mountains.
What are your rates?
Our rates are very flexible and competitive. At this stage, we do not have a self-serve system, so please contact us for any advertising inquiries.
As a general rule, the fees for contextual ads are the lowest, and the fees for non-contextual images ads are the highest. For example, an image placed on the main sidebar on the site (guaranteeing its visibility on any post) would have a higher rate than a contextual link in a single article. For sponsored posts, rates are flexible based on article length. Volume discounts may also be applied.
