*** On occasion, Triad Moms on Main participates in affiliate advertising programs with Share-A-Sale and Amazon to promote third-party advertisers. These advertisers pay TMoM a commission on products and services sold through the hyperlinks they provide TMoM, and/or on the number of times a hyperlink is clicked by a user. These advertisers may also collect information directly from visitors, and place or recognize cookies on visitors’ browsers. TMoM only works with advertisers whose brands are trusted (especially by those on our team), are relevant to our readers, and provide a value to our visitors. If you have any questions about which of our sponsors is an affiliate marketer, please contact us directly at Katie@TriadMomsOnMain.com.
Businesses may choose to advertise with TMoM in a variety of ways:
1. Banner Ads
These are typically a business logo. These can run in various places on our website. Price depends upon placement and size of the banner ad.
2. Newsletter Sponsorship
Triad Moms on Main sends out a weekly e-newsletter each Wednesday. A business can choose to sponsor this newsletter, and be placed in one of three ad spaces on the newsletter.
3. Daily Blog
The prime focus of our website is our daily blog. Each day we run a new article which is posted at midnight. These articles/blogs usually contain 500-800 words of text and range in topic from personal stories to parenting tips, to advertisements. A business may choose to purchase a daily blog spot and have that day’s article focus solely on your business. This may be written by a TMoM member for an additional charge.
4. Sunday Spotlight
This feature runs every Sunday and is a compilation of short advertisements. You may use this space to promote an event, a business in general, or a product.
We have the ability to run two giveaways simultaneously every two weeks. You will see these by clicking the Giveaway box on the home page the website. Your business can sponsor a giveaway and receive this two-week promotion. The giveaway prize must total at least $100.At the end of the giveaway promotion, your business will receive a list of email addresses from readers who have asked to be added to your newsletter list.
6. Featured Event
Your special event can be featured on the right side of our Events page (next to our calendar) for two weeks. The write up will include basic information such as date, time, location, and link to a website, and a brief description about the event as well as one image or your logo.

Guest Blogger Guidelines
We welcome guest bloggers to submit an article to Triad Moms on Main!
Simply email Rachel with your idea for consideration.
Guest blogs must:
– Be between 500-800 words of text
– Not mention any specific business (this is considered a paid advertisement)
– Will not be able to link back to any business
– Topic must be approved by the TMoM Team
We cannot guarantee if/when a guest blog will run. We keep all guest blogs on file and run them as they come in to the site and as spaces become available on our editorial calendar.
More detailed info on the difference between sponsored vs. guest blogs:
These guidelines are in effect as of October 1, 2011.
* A guest blog from a person who is not a current advertiser: There will not be a mention of the business anywhere in the blog or by-line. It will be a blog written by, for example, Jane Doe.
* A guest blog from a current advertiser: We will have the business’ name in the by-line, but there will not be a link to their business. For instance, let’s say “Your Town Pediatricians” is a current advertiser who will be submitting a blog written by a physician on a medical topic. We will include the doctor’s name and that they work at “Your Town Peds,” but there will not be a link to the practice. They are not paying for this blog because it is not about the actual business, but rather an informational topic that is helpful to our readers.
* A sponsored/paid blog: This is a blog that a business may purchase. This blog is all about the business, has links to their web site and Facebook page, and can include anything the business would like to share with our readers.

“Triad Moms on Main has been a great way for us to reach families with young children. Sometimes it’s hard to know where our visitors heard about the school or a specific event, but with Triad Moms on Main, their visitors remember seeing our stories and let us know. There are many different ways to get our messages to new families and they support that effort with their social media as well.

“As a mother, I use Triad Moms on Main as resource for all sorts of things. All of my friends with kids look at the website at least once a day for ideas of where to take the kids, schools recommended by other parents, pediatricians etc. As a business owner, I have promoted my business many times with TMoM and always have had wonderful experience. There are so many readers, like me, looking to find new and local businesses that are recommended by the editors and by other parents. It’s easy to work with all sales representatives and they really help you get the best of all their marketing opportunities. I recommend TMoM as a mom for a fantastic place for plenty of resources, and as a business owner to help promote and grow your business.”

“Expanding our advertising efforts to include Triad Moms on Main (TMOM) has been a great decision! Not only has TMOM become a leading source of referral traffic to our school’s website, the exposure through the blog, event listings, banner ads and email blurbs has helped generate more awareness for our school. Combined with our other marketing efforts, TMOM is helping St. John’s Lutheran School reach its goal of becoming a frequently considered private school option for families in the Winston-Salem area.”
