Banner Ads

In the past, I’ve used a third-party site to manage my ads. However, they’ve recently experienced some issues and so, for the time being, I will be selling ads directly. Please email me at marisa@foodinjars.com to make a purchase. All billing will be done through Paypal.

Top Spot
$500
250×325 Banner
Currently booked.
Runs for 1 Month, 1 shown at a time
This is the best ad spot on Food in Jars. Top-right corner, above the fold. Comes with a dedicated monthly blog post (could be a giveaway, or simply a feature) and 3-5 mentions on social media.

Number Two
$350
250×250 Banner
Available now. Runs for 1 Month.
A slightly more affordable option than the Top Spot. Advertisers buying this size ad will receive top mention in my monthly sponsor round-up blog post and 2-3 mentions on social media. Giveaway opportunities are also available.

Sidebar Slice
$175
250×150 Banner
Available now. Runs for 1 Month.
This spot runs the full width of the sidebar, but doesn’t have the height of the pricier options. All advertisers in this position will receive a 2-3 sentence mention in the monthly sponsor round-up blog post.

Be Squared
$75
125×125 Banner
Available now. Runs for 1 Month.
These smaller, more affordable square ads are perfect for Etsy sellers, bloggers, and other fledgling businesses. These sponsors will be listed in my monthly sponsor blog post. Giveaway opportunities also exist at this level of sponsorship.
