INeedCoffee strives to make our site as fast as possible for our readers. Don’t waste your brand awareness budget on sites with sluggish servers that take forever to load. Below are speed tests that were taken on July 24, 2017, from Pingdom and GTMetrix.
Sponsored Post Format and Pricing
The current price for a sponsored post is:
- $500 for permanent placement. (Discounts are available during the spring and summer)
If you need the article written for you, contact us and we can work out something. INeedCoffee has been online for almost 20 years. We are looking for partners looking to promote their brands and bring value to coffee consumers.
Each new Sponsored Post will also receive a 1-month banner ad to that article, which will appear on every page (except the homepage). See the Banner Advertising section below for details.
If your company or service goes out of business before the sponsored period is complete, INeedCoffee reserves the right to remove the post or any dead links in the article.
INeedCoffee will use the nofollow attribute on links to the sponsor website per Google’s TOS. This is an industry standard. The post will be clearly marked as a Sponsored Post for our readers.
Sponsored Post Example
The article Make Cold Brew Coffee Quickly with the Gourmia Automatic Cold Brewer is an example of a Sponsored Post written by INeedCoffee. We worked directly with Gourmia on requirements and published after two revisions.
The article written by Michael at INeedCoffee for our Automatic Cold Coffee Brewer was exactly the message we wanted to get out to coffee fans. He was easy to work with and responsive to our needs. – Chaya with Gourmia
In addition to sponsored posts, INeedCoffee also offers right-column banner advertising.
