Do you have a product that would benefit our readers?
We talk about eCommerce and monetization as it relates to WordPress sites. So keep that in mind as those products do best with our readers.
I’ve been using WordPress for more than a decade and have 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.
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 and 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. And while we continue to make our own editorial decisions on what we publish, this option gives you the opportunity to share your product with our readers.
The fact is, people love our posts because we don’t pull any punches. I write them in a way readers can understand, so they walk away with a better sense of exactly what the product can do for them.
And you get guaranteed publication.

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.
Here are a few examples of past sponsored posts on our site.
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.
Do you offer discounts? There are no discounts available for these services.
Do you offer refunds? No refunds are available and slots cannot be rescheduled.
What payments do you accept? Our preferred payment is sending you a Stripe invoice which you can pay with credit card or debit cart. Invoicing through PayPal is an option.
When can we expect it to be published? We reserve 4 spots each month on our editorial calendar for sponsored posts. So the next spot available varies and can be at times more than a month away. Sometimes we make exceptions, so contact us first if you need a guaranteed posted by a certain date.
When is payment made? Once you have submitted the form on this page, and if we accept you submission, we will send you an invoice. Once that is paid, you will be sent a link where you can send us more information and the necessary files.
Can we review the video or post before publication? No. We want the post to come from us and as professional writers, we want a polished final product. If at anytime during the process I need clarification on something, I will reach out to you.
Will you write about us if we are a product reseller or a marketplace? We do not write about service or products that are resold. And if you do have a marketplace 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.
Can we request an update to a post that was published? 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.
Can we recommend what we would like you to cover? Typically, we will ask you if there are any features you want us to make sure to cover. Other than that, we prefer the editorial freedom to write it the way we want to.
Do you do comparison reviews? 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 that comparison reviews do not help readers as much as they confuse them.
Can we use the screencast for our own site and promotion? 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.
Do you accept all submissions? 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 to explain the reason.
Will you publish a post that we write? No. We only write sponsored posts ourselves. We do not offer publication of your post for a fee.
How many visits can we expect on your site? 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. Our site averages 60K monthly in pageviews.
This included social sharing. What is BobWP’s social reach? We are very active on social and have a combined reach of 27K+.
Do you accept sponsored posts for hosting? No, we don’t. We do very limited posts on hosting and the ones we do we choose ourselves.
Do you write sponsored posts on themes? In the past we have, but as our focus changes, we want you to know that if you are looking for a theme review, our readers are less interested in those kinds of posts.
Do you require that we have an affiliate program? No, we don’t. But if you have an affiliate program, would likely request to become an affiliate. Naturally, we tend to share more frequently the products and services we are affiliated with— and over the long-term.
Are links do-follow or no-follow? All links in the posts are no-follow.
I have a question you haven’t answered. Please feel free to contact us.
