6. Sponsor Specifications
Sponsorship can include the following:
- a 200 x 100 web-friendly image, ready to upload. I do not format or fine-tune ads. They will be placed in the sidebar for a three-month minimum so calculate that into your request.
- a guest post on a topic relevant to my readers. This may contain up to two links.
- a themed article written by me on a topic of your choosing related to technology in education.
- sponsorship of an article or event hosted by Ask a Tech Teacher.
- a product review written by me of an edtech-friendly product that will appeal to my readers. Funds must be paid as a donation, before I begin the work. I don’t review products in exchange for product or promotional codes.
I don’t accept many sponsors at one time because I want readers to notice them as well as other pieces on the sidebar. I don’t like sidebars so chock full of corporate logos that I can’t find the other stuff to help with my teaching so I won’t have that on my blog.
I am willing to discuss custom advertising opportunities.
