Sponsor any website post: $75 (your business gets space at the bottom of a post of your choice saying you sponsored it. You also get to include a link to your business and a line or two to explain what you do or tell our readers about one of your products).
Sponsor a blog post about your business $250-$750, depending on who is doing the writing/photo shooting and how long the post is. Think: more if you want us to write and shoot the post, less if you can provide the copy and photos. We're always happy to give you a free quote! Just drop a message below. Please note: Blog posts are limited to food/drink/farm-related content. That's not to say you can't be in another line of work! For instance, if you're a therapist with a nutrition certification, you could write about local foods you love, or tips to stay healthy in the Gorge and then plug your business at the end of the post. If you're not a food-related business, we can help you brainstorm!
