I am happy to offer advertising space at FIMBY to select individuals, businesses and groups.
FIMBY is a fun space, a pretty space, a tell-my-story kind of space.
FIMBY readers are intelligent, informed and (dare I say) simply lovely people. They appreciate home and family life, the natural world, and mindful living. They visit to be inspired and encouraged to live their own healthy, adventurous and creative life - with beauty and intention.
FIMBY content covers a wide range of topics relating to:
homemaking, nature, health, outdoors, homeschooling, adventure, and creativity.
Do you have a product, service or resource that you think would benefit this great group of readers? I'd love to hear about it.
I'd especially like to help promote your small business or craft.
Just the Facts Ma'am
Last updated summer 2013, typically slow traffic months.
- FIMBY readers come from all over the world, predominantly from the United States and Canada, good for North American mail order type products. However, other readers land here literally from the whole globe - Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, South America. Perfect for e-products and services.
- Current monthly page views average 45,000 - 50,000. More than 13,000 unique individuals visit FIMBY each month.
- FIMBY sends a weekly newsletter to nearly 2,000 subscribers.
- FIMBY's most popular content are the homemade soap and body care resources. People land here wanting to learn how to make soap and stay for the story.
- Other popular content is the front page (by far the most traffic lands here), homeschool resources, food and kitchen related posts.
Fees & Options
I offer competitive and targeted advertising opportunities, with options that fit in any advertising budget.
Current options include small side bar ads, post sponsorship, and placement in my weekly newsletter. I am open to other ideas.
1. Side Bar Ads
Side bar advertising fees are set on a cost per one thousand page views. In marketing speak this is cpm - cost per mille (homeschool geek here - mille being Latin for 1,000).
What this means is you pay to have your ad seen a fixed number of times, in a denomination of 1,000.
Let's say you want an ad campaign for 45,000 page views – about one month of continuous showing at current page views - your cost is $22.50 ($.50 x 45).
Please remember I don't sell advertising for set periods of time, rather a set number of page views.
I use cpm advertising rates vs. monthly rates so that YOU, whoever you are and whatever your ad budget is, can afford to advertise to this great group of people who read FIMBY.
2. Post Sponsorship
If you have a product, service, or resource that has a good fit with the themes of home, nature and creativity you might consider sponsoring an actual post. Along the lines of "this post brought to you by...". See here for example.
Rates for sponsoring a post are fixed, not cost per mille. I am very selective about post sponsorship. Your ad in this space would really stand out.
3. Newsletter Spot
Once a week I send an email newsletter to nearly 2,000 subscribers. Click here for a sample. The newsletter is the condensed weekend edition of FIMBY.
I reserve one spot in this newsletter for advertising product and services.
If you'd like more information, or to place an ad at FIMBY, please contact me (see below) and I will follow up with payment instructions, banner requirements, and advertising spots currently available.
And truly, I have options for all budgets.
Working with Renee and having the opportunity to sponsor FIMBY was a rewarding experience, both personally and professionally. Renee has created a community of engaged, passionate, and curious readers who were eager to learn more about my online class and offerings. I am delighted that I found FIMBY and would partner with Renee at any time for future endeavors!
