I’m filling in the advertising orders for the month of January as well as on through the year. I’ve received a few questions from authors and other bloggers on the lowdown for BIR so I thought I’d offer up the answers here in a post for everyone to read.
The first question that came up is my reach. I found this one to be rather important and one that I should share first because you need to know how many people I expose your ad to.
Here are my details:
Social reach: This includes Twitter, Facebook Fan Page, Pinterest, Google+, Goodreads, the site’s followers as well as my daily visitor numbers.
Social sites total reach: 8900
Total monthly blog visits: 40,000
Google Page Ranking: 3 (for comparison Wikipedia is a 4 :) )
The second question is about the ad design itself and if I design it at an extra cost.
My answer, there is no extra cost to the banner design. I include the design of the promotional banner and the EXCLUSIVE promotional banner upon your order. All you have to provide is the cover art and the information you want used on the banner. Once the design is complete you get to keep the banner for use wherever you like while I place the banner on the blog for your advertising period. It’s like a two for one deal: you get ad space and a banner design.
The promotional banner is 958x150 and costs $25 for a single month, $50 for 2 months and $65.00 for 3 months.

The EXCLUSIVE promotional banner is 582x322 and has the same cost as the promotional banner above. Since space is limited this ad is based on a first come first serve basis. (Sorry, I really wish I had more room!) The available dates for this banner are: February 1st for the right side banner and February 9th for the left side banner. FYI, this fills up fast!

And since I’ve detailed out those two ad spaces I thought I’d go ahead and provide all the information for the other two ads.
Book Cover ads are sized at 214x293 for $10.00 a month, $25.00 for 3 months and $45 for 6 months and…
|LOCATED ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE BAR|
The animated ads (check out Tonya Kinzer’s ad at the top right) are 250x300 and has a cost of $30 for 1 month, $60 for 2 months, $70 for 3 months and $150.00 for 6 months. And yes, I design this ad as well. All you have to do is provide the images and information.
If you run an ad for more than one month you can change out your ad at any time. Just email your request to me and I’ll take care of switching it out for you.
