The message you are about to read was provided by its sponsor. The opinions, products, and/or services referenced are not necessarily endorsed or shared by site staff and contributors, or by other sponsors, but we're grateful for the support. If you're interested, click to find out how you can sponsor a guide.
This guide isn't actually sponsored, but we figure things will work better if we have an example to point people toward when we're ready to start talking about how a sponsored guide might look. So here we are.
If you choose to sponsor a guide, you can produce an article that will appear on a page like this one (different guides may have different color schemes, but this page will appear largely the same). Your sponsored post will be linked from every page within the individual guide, and your message will remain in place as long as the site is online, unless you ask to have it removed. You don't have to worry about competing ads displaying for other products or services anywhere on the guide. And we'll promote the guide on social media and on the front page of our site for a time, just like we would any other guide.
The message you provide to appear on your sponsor page within the guide can be 1200 words, if you like. It can be 200 words. It can be anywhere in between, or longer or shorter.
You can choose to link to your web site, if you wish. Any links within your sponsored article will be marked as "nofollow," which means search engines will likely avoid indexing them (Google's rules). If you don't want any outgoing links, that's fine with us. If you have one or more images you want to include (no wider than 640 pixels), that's doable and we can even host them on our server if you want.
The important thing to keep in mind is that you're paying for the guide to be produced, and this message is your reward for that sponsorship. We want you to be happy with what it accomplishes on behalf of your brand or event, because we're grateful that you're helping us produce more of the sort of content our audience loves. Thank you!
