User Help > Sponsor a Guide

Are you looking to promote a product or service? You've probably already discovered that banner ads aren't always the best way to go about it. You have more to say than really fits in a tiny image, or people are tuning out your ads or even blocking them with software. We do still offer traditional advertising, but if that's no longer working for you, it's time to consider a new approach: guide sponsorship.

Why should you sponsor a guide?

When you sponsor a guide, your message will be attached to some of the most popular content on our site. Our guides perform well on both Google and social media, and yet it's more affordable to sponsor a guide at HonestGamers than you probably think. Our current price range is $150 to $1500, depending on the complexity of the game you want us to write about (guides for more complex titles tend to generate the most traffic but require a lot more time and energy to produce). Here's what your investment gets you:
  • A special page on the guide that contains the sponsor message you provide*
  • A prominent link from every page in the guide to that message
  • An optional ad banner, 720Wx90H, also on every page in the guide, which displays for all users
  • Absolutely no competitor ads on the guide you sponsor
  • Natural promotion on social media to increase the guide's reach
  • Original and premium content produced by site staff or a freelancer within our custom CMS
* If your message includes links, the links will have "nofollow" tags applied in order to adhere to Google guidelines.

We're offering big exposure for a small investment, and it lasts for the lifetime of the guide (unless you ask us to remove your message when a campaign ends).

Would you like to see what a guide looks like?

Take a look at Watch Dogs guide for an example of the sort of content you are sponsoring. Since it was posted, its pages have already been loaded more than 80,000 times (according to internal figures).

That guide isn't our only success, and it's just a taste of things to come. We can cover hundreds of additional games in the future with your assistance, and each guide we post helps to ensure that new ones perform even better. We love writing about games, and we're good at it. Put our passion and professionalism to work for you!

We look forward to hearing from you if you're ready to help us produce new guides, or if you have questions we haven't yet answered. Click the link to become a sponsor today!
