Travel Advertising and Marketing – Why Advertise on The Travel Tart?
Interested in Advertising on this website? Please read below first and then Contact Me.
This website is all about having a bit a fun – which is what travel is all about and attracts people with a sense of adventure, and possibly, a warped sense of humour.
If you target independent travellers, backpackers, flashpackers, gap-year students, campers, or travel bloggers, and you want to enhance your website or brand awareness, there may be an advertising opportunity right for you on this website.
I have also worked with a number of top Tourism Authorities and companies who have benefited from working with me (more details here).

Payment and Advertising Options
All prices below are in United States Dollars (USD). Preferred payment is via PayPal.com. You can use your PayPal balance, your credit card or your bank account (in some countries). If your organization does not use PayPal, then payment can be made via bank transfer.
Note, the below options are subject to availability.
Advertising Option 1 – Promoted Posts
Note: The post must be either funny, offbeat or weird in nature to fit in with the theme of this site. I decide what that is!
Cost: $1000 per post (I write), or $750 per post (you write) – once off payment
What You Get: If you would like your product, service or website reviewed in a blog post you may purchase advertising in a post (or provide your own content – which must be humourous). I will test it (or in the case of a website, visit it) and write an honest review based on the experience. I will also tweak the post slightly for SEO purposes.
Benefits: Reviews can include your preferred website. They are posted live to the front page of this blog for at least 7 days, and will exist permanently to benefit from long term search engine traffic. The post will be permanent as long as The Travel Tart website is running. You will have exposure from an authority travel blog and increased views for your product, service or website. I reserve the right to refuse a review/post for any reason.
Note: I will always disclose these reviews and freebies to my readers. To request a promoted post, please Contact Me.
Advertising Option 2 – Premium Banner Sponsorship
Cost: $300 per month ($3600 per 12 months)
What You Get: Your 728 x 90 banner appears at the top every post.
Benefits: Your campaign is placed above the fold on all posts (over 400). An above-the-fold banner campaign is a great way to create high exposure for your product, business or website and attract direct traffic. This banner is fixed at the top of every post and does not rotate.
Details: You will need to supply your own 728 x 90 banner. Static banners are preferred. You may change your banner at any time.
Please Contact me to discuss this option further.
