Sponsorship

From 2016 bayton-black-120px-p is looking to incorporate sponsored content into new and existing posts, as well as sponsored areas on the site, via external partners. Companies/brands are invited to reach out to  directly in order to discuss the following:

Sponsored reviews

For a sponsored review, a partner supplies physical goods or access to a paid platform in order for a review to be undertaken on a product or service.

Where the review is based on physical goods, the product supplied will often be considered payment in full (subject to agreement). For virtual goods, for example web hosting, *aaS platforms, apps or other software products, payment is preferred however a permanent license or access to the platform will be considered on a review-by-review basis.

Sponsored reviews will be highlighted as such, with links back to the partner and/or an authorised reseller to purchase the product reviewed (see the fitlet-RM review for an example of this).

Examples

Get started

Sponsored reviews can be requested by filling out the review application form. All applications are considered and typically replied to within 24 hours.

Sponsor a single post

Where a partner will be promoted on the next suitable published post as its sponsor. The brand has full say in what is written in the promotional text which will accompany the brand logo. This will be situated at the bottom of a post and will look as follows (colours/layout subject to agreement):
