Website Advertising – We are now offering small banner and skyscraper banners on the sidebar of the inner pages of this website for $50 per month (small banner) and $75/month (skyscraper). We follow some guidelines for advertising and the banner needs to be pre-approved.
Sponsored Blog Post – We can write a blog post with a link to your company for $200 per post. Please talk to us about the possible topics for writing. This will be a permanent post on the blog but will have a disclaimer that it is a sponsored post.
Sticker Sponsorship – The cost of printing stickers is shouldered by the organisers, but if you would like to sponsor printing of one run of stickers (1,000 pieces), that costs $300 — inclusive of GST and delivery fee. As a sticker sponsor, we will acknowledge your donation in our social media platforms. As an option, you can also get your logo printed in our stickers.
Golden Ticket Promo – We require that you offer a significant discount, a gift voucher, tickets to plays or movies based on books or a bookish goodie bag to participate in the Golden Ticket promo. We will be placing a golden ticket as part of a themed book drop. The ticket will be equivalent to the prize that you will provide. The book finder will need to contact Books on the Bus to claim the prize. As this requires logistics and has an advertising cost for us to boost in social media, we require a placement fee of $100 per campaign.
