Do you have a product that would benefit our readers?
This could be as specific as a WordPress plugin or theme, or as general as a SaaS product that helps WordPress blog, site or online store owners to grow and increase their sales.
I have been using WordPress for over a decade and taught thousands of users. Before that, I dove into digital technology as best as I could with the tools available. Over the life of this blog we have published tons of content. As a result, we have grown our readership to hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. We continue to do just that but, obviously, we cannot cover everything.
Just remember, the focus of our site is eCommerce and monetization.
What Is a BobWP Sponsored Post? Is it a Review?
Think of it as an educational post that lies between a review and a tutorial.
We used to call them reviews, but the fact was, they were considerably different from the reviews you might read on other sites. We don’t list the pros and cons. We aren’t here to bash your product. We simply want to share its features, strengths and let our readers make the final decision. It’s more about educating than reviewing.
It Gets You Guaranteed Publication
We cannot possibly cover all the great products out there. Sure, we continue to make our own editorial decisions on what we publish, but this option gives you the opportunity to share yours with our readers.
The fact is, people love our posts because we don’t pull any punches. I write them in a way they can understand, and I help them walk away with a better sense of exactly what the product can do for them.
And you get guaranteed publication.
What Can You Expect in the Sponsored Post?
Understand that you are not simply paying to have your product on our site. You are paying for the time it takes us to write a post like this, the style that our readers have come to love in our writing and the exposure to our audience.
There are three things you need to know.
- Our goal is to provide our readers with the options out there for starting or growing their WordPress sites.
- We write all our sponsored posts and do not accept guest-written sponsored posts.
- Posts are not available for review before publication.
Text & Screenshot Sponsored Post – $500
These sponsored posts include:
- In-depth text and screenshots describing your setting, options and features
- Social shares:
- Twitter: 5 shares day of publication. Shared once a day for 3 days within the following week (excluding weekends)
- Facebook: 2 shares day of publication.
- LinkedIn: 2 shares day of publication
- Guaranteed publication in our feed and newsletter
- Guaranteed shares on social media day of publication and 3 times thereafter
- Additional sharing off and on over the next 3-4 months
Optional: 10 Minute Screencast/Video + $250 (this can only be purchased with the text & screenshot sponsored post)
If you would like a 10 minute video added to your post, this option is for you. I will go over the most important features of your product as well as the benefits they will get from using your product. I will also add in some personal perspective as well.
Note: this video is an add-on to the sponsored post and cannot be purchased separately.
Is This Your Product?
If you feel a post on your product requires us to use it ourselves for any period of time in order for us to write about it, unfortunately we cannot write a post on it as it may not fit our own needs nor can we add the extra time into what we are doing for the price of our service.
Want A Bit More Exposure?
If you would like to consider even more exposure, check out our 1-Month Sponsorship package that includes both the text/screenshot and video post, but also an ad placement in our sidebar at the top of all posts for an entire month. In addition, you’ll get a spot as a guest on the BobWP eCommerce show and some extra social shoutouts throughout the month.
Please check out the FAQs below the form, and if you still have a question, contact us here.
Book Your Sponsored Post
Just fill out this short form and once we have approved it, you will be sent an invoice to be paid by Stripe (PayPal is the second option).
Once payment is made we will send you available dates and a link to a form to give us further information.
If you still have a question about our sponsored posts, you can contact us here.
There are no discounts available for these services.
No. Once we have agreed on a date and payment is made, there are no refunds.
Our preferred payment is sending you a Stripe invoice where you can pay with credit card or debit cart. But invoicing through PayPal is optional.
Maybe. It really depends on how soon you need it and what is on the editorial calendar. When we send you the invoice, we will also email you dates available.
All links in the posts will be no-follow. There are no exceptions allowed.
No we don’t. If possible, and we are not already an affiliate, we would likely request to become one. If that does happen, we tend to share on social more frequently posts of products and services we are affiliated with. This is because that is our main income.
Once you have submitted the form on the page, and if we accept you submission, we will send you an invoice. Once that is paid you will be send a link where you can send us more information and the necessary files.
No. We want the post to come from us and as professional writers, we feel the final product is polished. If at anytime during the process I need clarification on something, I will reach out to you.
We do not write about service or products that are resold. And if you do have a maketplace for your own products, we prefer to write about a specific plugin, theme or service. Writing about an entire shop isn’t helpful to our readers.
We often update our posts but that really depends on a couple of factors. So that is up to us. If you are interested in us updating an existing post, contact us and we will give you a quote.
Typically, we will only ask you of any features you want us to make sure and cover. Other than that we prefer the editorial freedom to write it the way we want to?
We don’t do any comparison reviews on our site ourselves or through sponsored content. We do not consider our sponsored posts to be reviews, but more overviews and educational pieces. I firmly believe comparison reviews do not help readers as much as they confuse them.
Unfortunately no. We prefer to keep the videos limited on sites that they are embedded on and don’t allow others to download or embed them. If you are looking for a polished promotional video, we will consider that but our price is much higher.
No we don’t. Once you have submitted through the form on the page, we have the right to not accept it. We will notify you with an explanation of why.
No. We only do sponsored posts ourselves. We do not offer publication of your post for a fee.
Individual stats for posts vary. Some posts can stay in the triple digits while others have thousands over time. Our site averages 90% organic traffic and we focus on long-tail traffic. On the days we publish sponsored content, the daily average is 1,900 pageviews which occasionally go as high at 2.5k.
We are very active on social and have a combined reach on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ of 28K+
