Sponsor an Important Media Post

Example of a sponsored post on Gas2.

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 are highly educated, high earners, and have disposable income (most have no kids). Find our current site traffic stats here.

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, infographics, interviews, and anything else you want to share about your brand, cost $150 per article on all but six of our sites (see price list below).

Payment is required before posts go live, no exceptions. 

Here are some recent examples of sponsored posts from across our network:

Who Writes the Sponsored Articles?

You are welcome to submit your own high quality and original article to us to be published under a Guest Contributor authorship (which we also use for syndicated articles and featured guests). You are free to write anywhere from 400-1200 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 once before it goes live. Our writers are experts in their fields, so 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 choose to make your advertorial “sticky” by having us put your article at the top right of our sidebar for a month. Please note this is not available for CleanTechnica or CleanTechies. 

The cost for this matches the cost of an article (ie: the cost of a sponsored article on CleanTechnica is $500, so the cost of sticky post is $500 also). Article remains on the top right sidebar for one month. Please note, sticky posts must be purchased as a set with a sponsored post.
