Need Us To Create Your Banner Ad For You?
While it's easiest and most affordable for you to provide us with the artwork, we can design it for you. For this option, please provide as much information as you can about how you'd like it to look. Fee for this service is $150 per design. The first revision if free, with additional revisions at $25/ea.
Banner Ad Discounts and Other Notes

- 5% discount for links back to us for reservation duration (max. total discount per month is $30)
- While our banner rotation cap is 5, we offer exclusive spots for advertisers who wish to reserve extended stays.
Written, Backlinks, Infographics, Audio, Video, and Email Spots Also Available
In addition to banner ads, we offer a variety of other spots. Each serves a unique need and all (with the exception of email promotions), once published, are shared on our social media platforms with emphasis on Facebook, Twitter, and one prominent hobby forum. Please note that while some fees are one-time, others are re-occurring (per month). Stated.
*Please note: Written Promotions and Infographics come with a one-time fee and a one-month reservation. After the one-month reservation period expires, site admins reserve the right to remove/disable the associated post at their discretion for any reason and without notice. Vendors can reinstate the associated post for an additional month of activity at the same/similar associated one-time cost.
2. Written Promotions:
Articles are offered to give readers a bit more depth to your promotion delivery. This is a great way to emphasize details and has the strongest SEO potential among all other options listed here. To maximize reach, couple this option with an Audio, Video, and/or Email promotion. For this format, you provide the concept/content and media files (photos if they exist). For this promotion category, we offer two formats:
1. You do the work and send it to us.
You send us the content and media files just as you want them to be published and we drop it all into an article and publish it. Cost for this option: $250.
- Up to 1000 words
- Each word over 1000: $0.05
- One backlink can be included at no additional cost
- Written Content: For all written content, you can send it over as a Plain Text RTF file (preferred), or included in the body of your message.
- Media Files: All media files must be sent as .jpg and no wider than 620px. If they are wider than that, please size them down to 620px before sending them to us. If they are smaller, please don't size them up. For all files sent that are wider than 620px or in a format other than .jpg, a $5 surcharge will be included on your invoice to cover the cost of image correcting. We recommend scanning between 300-600dpi. While we're pretty lenient about this, if the image doesn't meet our quality standards, we may ask you to provide a better quality image.
- Links: Include Backlink and/or YouTube link instructions along with the links themselves. If linking out to anything, those links must direct to credible category-related content.
- How to Send Content: When ready, send content over with layout instructions. All content must be sent via our Contact Us page, which is located in our website footer (scroll all the way down). Once received, we'll review your submission. If approved, we'll reply to arrange payment and begin preparing your article for publication.
2. We do the work for you.
You send us the concept idea with media files and we write, edit, and publish the article. Here's how the pricing works for this option:
- Up to 800 words: $150
- Each word over 800: $0.10
- Time for writing, and photo editing (when applicable):
- Hourly rate: $50 with a 1-hour minimum
550-word article that took 2.5 hours to draft: ($150 + ($50 x 2.5)) = $275
For vendors interested in less depth, we also offer backlink promotions. A backlink is a link from our website to your website. Our fees are on a per link basis and vary depending on content type (Cornerstone or Non-Cornerstone).
Cornerstone content: These are authority articles with consistent traffic and strong credibility. These articles are thousands of words, heavily sourced, and have rich online footprints.
Non-Cornerstone content: Pretty much everything else.
- $100 for Non-Cornerstone content
- $350 for Cornerstone content
We do not offer backlinks on our product articles or global pages.
*Please note: Backlinks come with a one-time fee and a one-month reservation. After the one-month reservation period expires, site admins reserve the right to remove/disable the associated link at their discretion for any reason and without notice. Vendors can reinstate the associated link for an additional month of activity at the same/similar associated one-time cost.
Infographics are graphic visual representations of data, information, and/or knowledge intended to provide a specific message clearly and quickly. You provide the infographic and we'll publish it in its own article. Required format: .jpg.
- $250 for Infographic alone
- $300 for Infographic with Backlink
5. Audio Promotions:
We use pro-audio recording equipment to enhance the quality of your promotion. These audio promotions are offered as drop-ins to our podcasts and end up on iTunes, YouTube, and as article embeds. This final product is shared on social media.
The price is $100 for up to 15 seconds and $7 per second after that. You provide the promotion script.
6. Video Promotions:
We offer isolated video promotions. Each video is uploaded to YouTube and shared on social media.
The price is $150/hour of work with a 1-hour of work minimum. You provide the written portion of the promotion and supplementary materials if they exist. The first revision if free, with additional revisions at $75/ea.
7. Email Promotions:
Sometimes we send emails to our distribution list and we offer promotion opportunities in these emails.
