Ad Space Giveaway with The Lake Country Mom!
We thought what better way to celebrate The Lake Country Mom turning two than giving away ad space to a deserving local business! If you are not familiar we offer ad space aka “sponsors” on the left sidebar of our blog/website. We have been so lucky and so humbled to have so many area businesses advertise with us to keep The Lake Country Mom going-truly blessed! I was thinking and there are so many start-up and small businesses that I have heard of or seen either brick and mortar or online, and may not have the funds to advertise quite yet. So, I thought–let’s giveaway ad space to a deserving local business. I just want to hear your story!
Why is advertising on blog, such as The Lake Country Mom beneficial, anyway?
Consider These Benefits
Blog forums are filled with folks who share some common interest. These are folks who love to speak out because they can offer up a candid opinion while they hide behind a screen name. This can give rise to interesting, sometimes useful discussions that are launched by the blogs themselves within the social networks that accompany them.
A reader’s interest in your product or your service can be just the right momentary distraction for a blog reader, if your target audience and blog forum culture that supports it have been thoroughly explored. Blog readers are the perfect vehicle for creating buzz among like-minded folks who share an interest in one thing or another. And buzz can launch a concept, product, or idea to a point beyond your wildest expectations. If one’s marketing campaign is the cake itself, buzz is the icing on the top.
Where else can you examine your own potential audience thoroughly, participate in their discussion, get to know them maybe better than you need to, and test the waters for compatibility with your own ideas, concepts, products and/or services, and thereby project the outcome of your marketing so thoroughly in advance?
Where else can you become intimately familiar with the sensibility of your audience and the very specific interests that they share?
Remember, too, that bloggers (such as The Lake Country Mom) and blog-readers are more likely to communicate with friends and on-line pals when they run across something that piques their interest on the internet. It’s just a click or two to forward something to a friend who might also want to take a peek. What a great way to stir up interest in your product or your service or, if nothing else, expand your potential audience through someone else’s effort. (source)
