Premium Sponsorship (max 2 per month)

Premium Sponsorship is the best way to reach as many people as possible.

It includes an ad in each position, ensuring that your brand receives optimal exposure. There are two premium sponsorships available each month, so your ads are seen on 50% of sitewide page views.

You will have maximum flexibility in using your ad spots. Optimize your results by changing ads at different times of the month or by showing different ads on different categories.

Cost: $66 per month ($8 CPM for ~8,250 impressions)

Category Sponsorship (1 per category per month)

Category Sponsorship is ideal if your company specializes in a specific type of tea (or teaware), or you have a specific product you want to promote.

Sponsoring a specific category will mean that your ads are shown on every post in that category*, as well as on the category page. It includes an ad in each position to ensure best results.

As with Premium Sponsorship, you will have maximum flexibility in using your ad spots. Optimize your results by changing ads at different times of the month.

You can advertise on the following categories:

  • Green Tea. Cost: $47 per month ($15 CPM for ~3150 impressions)
  • Black Tea. Cost: $12 per month ($15 CPM for ~650 impressions)

  • Teapots and Tea Cups. Cost: $52.50 per month ($5 CPM for ~10,500 impressions)

* Note: If a post has been placed under multiple categories from the list above, the first listed category will be the one used to determine which ads to show.

Budget 125 x 125 Advertising (max 6 per month)

If you’re on a tight budget, you can take advantage of the 125×125 ad spot in the sidebar below the fold.

You can change your ad throughout the month to optimize your results. Your ad will be shown on a sitewide basis.

Cost: $16.50 per month ($1 CPM for ~16,500 impressions)

Need your teas reviewed?

In order to focus my efforts on building a single great website, rather than a fragmented mess, I have decided to limit my tea reviews to products featured in the Tea Marketplace. All reviews are integrated into the Marketplace, though they also all go out to the blog subscribers (currently around 300) through RSS and email; they are also featured heavily on the front page.

This means that if you want your teas to be reviewed on Tea Finely Brewed, you will need to at least agree to have those teas I review added to the Tea Marketplace. If you don’t have an affiliate program, this does cost a bit of money (click here for more detail), but in reality, there is a great benefit to having your teas listed in the Tea Marketplace with reviews, as reviewed teas are much more heavily emphasized than non-reviewed teas. The Tea Marketplace is also catered specifically towards people who are looking to buy tea, so the traffic to your site through these links is much more targeted.
