Babyology Advertiser Newsletter

It’s time to start getting into the festive frame of mind and here at Babyology, we’re collating our wishlists as I am sure you are too!

Babyology has had tremendous success over the past six months with readership and engagement increasing in every channel. We are pleased to offer some new options to our sponsors and some exciting announcements, including our November Prizeapalooza.

With our increasing traffic and engagement over the past six months, we have reviewed our rate card and, in keeping with our growing audience, will be having a slight price adjustment in some advertising positions. We will be doing a complete rate card review ready for the start of 2012.

In this newsletter:

  • Current Audience

  • Rate card changes
  • Christmas packages
  • Christmas Gift Guide
  • November Prizeapalooza

Visits per month

Our increased audience has come from a lot of hard work over here at Babyology to promote the website to new parents and introduce new concepts to grow traffic. We launched Prizeapalooza earlier in 2011 and thanks to many of our sponsors it was a huge success, helping to spread the Babyology word and grow our loyal audience. Our content and editorial team is highly skilled which sees many of our audience refer a lot of their friends to become part of the Babyology community.

Babyology Exclusive Offers

The Babyology audience just love the special offers that we are able to bring them. Many readers have asked us to send them weekly offers and sales so we are pleased to announce the launch of Babyology Exclusive Offers that will be going out to our subscriber database weekly to 18,500 people. There is a maximum of ten advertisers allowed in each weekly email and we are inviting you to be part of the first one! This is a great incentive for your brand to start promoting Christmas products.

The specs for the Babyology Exclusive Offers ads are a 600x500px image, max 100kb file size. If you have existing Mrec artwork you can use a single frame scaled up to fit 600x500px. This ad must include a sale or special offer to our readers.

Rate card changes

The following changes to the rate card will take place for all new bookings:
All shared newsletter inserts: $200 + GST
Social Media: $200 + GST

We have redesigned our Babyology Weekly newsletters to make them easier to navigate and read for our subscribers. In order for the newsletter to be more streamlined, we are changing the ad specs so that the ad position will be more in line with the look and feel of the newsletter.

The specs for newsletter ads are now a 600x500px image, max 100kb file size. This will see your brand fit in smoothly with the appearance of the newsletter and become part of the newsletter template. If you have existing Mrec artwork you can use a single frame scaled up to fit 600x500px.

We will be in contact with all advertisers who have current bookings to discuss the changes.
