Ad Options

Businesses may choose to advertise with TMoM in a variety of ways. All of our advertising options include social media perks!

 1. Banner Ads

These are typically a business logo. These can run in various places on our website. Price depends upon placement, rotation and size of the banner ad.

2. Newsletter Sponsorship

Triad Moms on Main sends out a weekly e-newsletter every Monday and Wednesday. (Monday newsletters summarize local events, while Wednesday newsletters summarize blogs on our website, giveaways, and directories.) A business can choose to place a banner ad on the Monday newsletter, or submit editorial content on the Wednesday newsletter.

3. Daily Blog

One of the prime features of our website is our daily blog. Each day we run a new article which is posted at midnight. These articles/blogs usually contain 400-700 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 their 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.

5. Giveaway

We have the ability to run two giveaways simultaneously every two weeks. You will see these on the home page the website and by clicking “giveaways” under the “by topic” tab. 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 at the top of our Events page 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 400-700 words of text – Not mention any specific business (this is considered a paid advertisement) – Not link back to any business – Not include any affiliate marketing links – Be a topic that is 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:

* 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.
