Sponsor an Important Media Post
The Important Media network is a great place to promote your company’s healthy and green initiatives and products. Our readership of about 3.5 million monthly readers tend to be highly educated, high earners, and have disposable income (most have no kids). Our demographic data are publicly available here: Important Media Readership, and you can find our current site traffic stats here.
See Why Blog Posts are the New Ad Unit from Hubspot for a thorough analysis of the outstanding effectiveness of content-based marketing. Sponsoring a post will get your info prominently published, blasted out to our many social media followers, and passed along through RSS feeds and newsletters.
Your article will be permanently available on our site and will provide long-tail exposure for you as readers find our search optimized articles for the keywords associated with your product. Please note, links in the sponsored article will be live and connected to your site, but will not pass pagerank.
Sponsored posts, which can include stories from press releases, videos, articles, interviews and anything else you want to share about your brand, cost $150 per article on all but four of our sites: the cost for Clean Technica (the #1 cleantech-focused website in the world) is $500 per article, the cost on Gas 2 is $300 per article, EV Obsession is $200, and the cost on Planetsave.com is $200 per article.
Payment is required before posts go live, no exceptions.
Here are some recent examples of sponsored posts from across our network:
- Support Carbon Pricing, Enter to Win a Tesla
- 10 Reasons to Choose Handmade Jewelry
- Get your Office to Commit to a More Sustainable Workplace
- Cut your Carbon Footprint with Watt Does it Use
Who Writes the Sponsored Articles?
If you like, you can submit your own high quality and original article for us to present to our readership under a Guest Contributor by-line (which we also use for syndicated articles and featured guests). You are free to write anywhere from 350-1200 words, and pick a topic of your choice.
As a general guideline, posts that look too advertorial will not attract readers. We suggest that you focus on your industry and speak as a voice of authority in that field. If you offer something of value to readers, they’re more likely to like you, and to share your article. You are encouraged to include photos and/or video clips as well.
If you don’t have the time or expertise to create the article, you can hire our team of brilliant writers to create an original article for you. We know our audiences well and charge just $25 for writing services per article. Writing services are available only in combination with sponsored posts, and full payment must be received before articles are drafted. You may review the article before it goes live, but final editorial discretion is ours. Since our writers are often experts in their field, this option can help your article really resonate with our readers.
If you’d prefer, we can get your sponsorship onto an existing article. If you’re simply looking for affiliation with a particular subject, take a moment to search within our network using the Important Media custom search. If you find an article you’d like to sponsor, just let us know which one.
OPTIONAL: Make it sticky!
To greatly increase the exposure your article will get and get an additional boost in SEO, you can “make it sticky” by having us put your article at the top right of our sidebar for a month. The cost for this matches the cost of an article (ie: the cost of a sponsored article on Clean Technica is $500, so the cost of sticky post is $500 too). Article remains on the top right sidebar for one month.
