Outlined below are the opportunities for advertising with ThinkBaby. This is just an overview, so for more information about the site in general or advertising in particular, please contact us.
1. Banner advertising: The traditional means of advertising on the web, effective for brand awareness, particularly when combined with a presence elsewhere on the site. 2. Site sponsorship: Sections of the site are available for sponsorship, which provides a permanent presence on the site for advertisers in the eyes and mind of your audience. A logo in the main body of the site has a much greater impact than banners, as visitors see your logo and brand as integrally associated with the site. 3. E-mail newsletter advertising: "We communicate with our registered users via e-mail on a weekly or monthly basis to keep them updated with the latest news, views and reviews from the site. These are e-mails that the recipients have requested and are not regarded as SPAM. We are able to offer space to advertisers on these newsletters. 4. Target your audience precisely using our sophisticated visitor data: The benefit of the internet is that it is interactive and the flow of information goes both ways between ourselves and our users. Using the data we collect on users' specific interests and where they pursue them, we can design marketing campaigns that can be targeted precisely at the people you want to reach. For more information on these type of bespoke solutions, please contact sales.
Audience and Rate card
For up to the minute information on site traffic and to discuss advertising packages that suit you, please contact sales.The network of 'MAGIC' sites combined deliver over 400,000 unique user sessions and over 3 million page views per month.
Unique User Session: A unique user session is recorded every time someone logs on to the site, regardless of how long they spend on it or how many pages they look at. In the offline media world, this equates to someone picking up a magazine and reading it.
Page View: A page view is recorded whenever a page of a site is looked at. Not to be confused with a 'hit' which is an extremely unreliable measure of traffic. In the offline media world, page views equate to the total number of pages read in all magazines printed in one issue.
Our audience demographic has already self-selected into enthusiasts in their given sport, but more information on geographic location, sex, age etc is available. Please contact sales for further information. Our advertising deals range depending on targeting objectives, but we specialise in helping first-time advertisers on the internet.
I am delighted with the response we have received from our listing on Think Baby and will definitely be back to you for the summer season next year.
Thank you very much Thinkbaby for your great reviews on our products. Having a new product to the UK, I really have benefited from having the lovely things written about them and getting the Thinkbaby seal of approval has been fantastic.
Also within the first few hours of having a shopping partner listing I had some orders! I had to interrogate my poor customers as I thought the link was going up the next day!
Finally the staff at Thinkbaby have been more than helpful and really great when ironing out any finer details and complications. Just super at communicating and putting up with my endless emails. Thanks again.
Mums The Word have been advertising regularly with ThinkBaby for the past year. We have had a consistently good response, both in terms of increased traffic to our site, and also increased sales.
The high quality editorial content and member interaction on the site seems to result in ready-to-buy customers coming through to Mums The Word. These new customers really have turned into a regular stream of repeat business for us.
ThinkBaby is now an integral part of my online advertising strategy
