We have a number of different ways you can advertise on Candy Addict. If you don’t see something below that meets your needs, email me and we can work something out. We can also help create some buzz for your new product(s) by doing things like giveaways and contests. Email me for details. All ads will display on every page on the Candy Addict blog, unless otherwise noted below.

Text ad: This is a text ad of up to 30 characters that will display on the site in the bottom of the left-hand column on every blog page. You can purchase this for $75 per month.

Blogads: Vertical image and text ads (and flash ads) can be purchased through Blogads. The current rate for a standard ad is $150 per month. This ad displays in the upper 1/3 of the left-hand column, just below the Google AdSense ads. (You can also cut out the middleman and buy this ad directly from us for $125 per month).

Top of left column: This is a vertical ad much like the Blogad above but it displays in the upper-most section of the left-hand column (above the AdSense ads). This is a prime location, is “above the fold”, and will be seen by everyone visiting the blog. $200 per month.

Above content, below logo: This is a horizontal ad whose maximum dimensions are 485×80 pixels. It will display below the Google AdSense just below the Candy Addict logo and above the content and is in a prime “above the fold” location. $200 per month.

Below each individual post: This is a maximum of 485×85 pixel horizontal ad that displays below an individual post and the “Related Articles” section and above the comments. It will replace the current AdSense ad that displays there now. This will not show on EVERY page (like the front page), but will show on every individual post’s page. $100 per month.

If none of these locations meets your needs, please contact me and we can work something out. Remember, ads on Candy Addict are targeted at adults looking for candy. If your product is candy or candy-related, we have the eyes of your target market.
