Top Spot
$500 per month

This is the best ad spot on Food in Jars. Top-right corner, above the fold. Comes with a dedicated quarterly blog post (could be a giveaway, or simply a feature) and 3-5 mentions on social media per month.

Number Two
$350 per 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

250×150 Banner
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 and at 1 social media mention. Giveaway opportunities are also available.

Be Squared
$75 per month
125×125 Banner
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 are also available.
