Advertise in 2014!

If that cutie can't convince you, how about this? I'd love to help you promote your small business or blog in the new year! Kitty & Buck offers super affordable advertising packages, which you can read about in detail on the advertising page. XL and Large sponsors will be included in the monthly sponsor giveaway, you can see the first one if it's kind here. There's also social media mentions, the Meet The Sponsors post and the option to offer a discount code.

If you're looking at holding a giveaway with your products, I have a special new option just for you, a solo giveaway post.

There's just one of the XL spots left for January, but you can get your hot little hands on a large or small ad right now. If you have any questions about advertising on Kitty & Buck, or if you need a hand designing an ad button, just email me on kittyandbuck {at} gmail {dot} com.

Advertising Overhaul and December Discount

Things have changed around here, for the better! I'm always looking at ways to make the experience of advertising on Kitty & Buck enjoyable and of course, beneficial for blogs and shops alike. I've come up with a new plan for 2014 that I think you'll love. I'm focussing on the best way to promote you.

Why do you advertise?
For blog owners //  You want people to visit, read and hopefully follow your blog (and other social media too), right?
For shop owners // You want to promote your store to the right people, who are interested in your products and love your business ethics. You want to spread the word about your awesome shop!
Some people ❤// Just want to support a blog they love (and maybe get some clicks in the process)

I've tailored my advertising to fit these needs a little better. The biggest change is with giveaways. If you are a business and you'd like to promote your products through a giveaway, I have a new option where you can purchase a solo giveaway post. These posts are strictly limited to two posts per month (more info in the ad shop).

Once a month, I will hold a 'sponsored' giveaway, where I will choose an awesome prize valued at approximately $50. I will purchase the prize with the money earned from advertising, and I'll be responsible for shipping it to the winner. XL and Large advertisers will be featured in the giveaway post as 'sponsors' of the giveaway and will be included in the bonus entries. To cover the cost, I have increased the ad prices of Large and XL ads by $5. If you'd prefer not to sponsor the giveaway, there is an 'opt-out' code which will give you a $5 discount on ad space and remove you from the giveaway post.

There will be no more solo giveaways for XL sponsors, or group giveaways for Large sponsors. They are being replaced by this new system. I think the new giveaway structure will be more consistent in the value of the prizes being offered and sponsors can take part for $5, where the previous value of any prizes needed to be $25. It's cheaper for you, and I think the giveaways will be really popular! Small ads are unchanged.

Since I'm now on Facebook, I'll be promoting you by sharing posts there. There will also be a more thorough approach to all social media mentions, through Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram as well.

My advertising page has been updated with the latest statistics, and the ad shop explains each option in more detail. I've also updated my press section, finally, so you can see a selection of places where Kitty & Buck has been featured.

If you're interested in buying an ad for December (and beyond), I'm offering a discount to celebrate these big changes. Simply enter the code BOWIE (for changes, get it?) for a 20% discount on all ad spaces, including the solo giveaway spots. (If you'd like to opt-out of the giveaway and use this discount, email me for a special code!) There's just one XL spot left for this year, but you can always take advantage of the discount and purchase ahead for 2014. The discount is valid until the end of November.

As always, I'm interested in your thoughts. I know this is a big change, so let me hear what you think, good and bad. The most important thing to me is that the advertising options represent good value and gives you the results that you're after.

Cheesy question for end of post:
Are there other reasons that you advertise? What features do you look for in advertising your blog/shop? Let me know!

Birthday Sale on All Ad Space!

Hooray! October is my birthday month, so I thought I'd celebrate with you by offering a big discount on ad space here on Kitty & Buck. If you've been thinking of advertising, now is the perfect time, you can snap up a huge 40% discount with the code icecreamcake. The offer will end on my birthday, which is 3rd October, so you have just over a week to take advantage of it. As always, with Passionfruit Ads, if the size you are after is sold out, you can purchase now and go into the queue for the next free slot, and you can also purchase multiple ads with the discount by using the new shopping cart feature.

Which leads me on to my other exciting news for October. We're heading back to Japan! Weeee! This time though, we're just heading to Tokyo for 10 days and I'll be taking my laptop and blogging daily on our adventures, and hopefully making some videos as well! I feel a little guilty having another holiday so soon, but hey, this is part of why I quit my job! Plus, the airfares were on sale and our favourite hotel in Tokyo (Best Western Shinjuku) sent me a 40% off birthday month special, so C decided to spoil me for my birthday (and Christmas and his Christmas and his birthday etc etc) Happy Birthday to me!

We'll be visiting Mt Fuji this time as well as heading back to the Ghibli Museum, Harajuku and a whole bunch more Kawaii culture and the natural beauty around Tokyo. Oh, and hopefully a bike tour! To say I'm excited is an understatement and I'm pretty happy to share it with you guys 'from the ground'.

There's plenty more going on here too, including a recipe or two, book nook, outfit posts, plus the usual features such as "Found" and "Wordless Weekend" will be more reliable than they have been the past few months. I've updated my stats on the Advertise page, if you're ready to purchase, head over there now! If you have any questions at all about advertising, or designing a button, let me know over email, in the comments below or on twitter.

I hope you join me for the best birthday ever!
