Yes, we do accept some sponsored posts and content. If you wish to submit a guest post but your post is overtlt promoting a product, business, or service, we considered that sponsored and ask for payment.

What are sponsored posts?

A sponsored post is one that is promoting a brand. If you are an individual and want to submit a recipe, write your thoughts about visiting Seattle, or whatnot, that’s not a sponsored post.

But if you’re a brand or business and are linking to your business, it is a sponsored post.

It is considered best practice to tag sponsored and paid links with rel=”sponsored,” so this is what we do with promotional links.

Will my post be labeled as sponsored content?

In keeping with best practices, we will disclose your post as being sponsored in the early part of the post. We’ll likely add something such as “this was sponsored by” or “this is a sponsored post which means…”

Will PNW & Beyond write something for me?

We cannot give you a definitive answer on this as it is situational. From time to time we get invited to various media previews and if it’s something we want to attend and have time for and doesn’t cost us a great deal to get to, we will choose to do that at no charge. It depends on the event.

Same goes for reviewing a product. If it’s something we’re into, like bike computers, we might want to review it.

Writing a post, however, actually takes quite a bit of time especially if you consider photography, SEO, etc.

If you are interested in us writing sponsored content for you, please contact us.

Will there be ads on my post?

We do not feel there should be ads on sponsored posts. We block ads on sponsored posts, or at least make every attempt to (once in a while we find an auto ad creeping back in where it shouldn’t be and have to make adjustments).

How much does a sponsored post cost?

We may vary the price of a sponsored post. Use the form below to view our current asking price.

However, the form is set up a “pay what you will” so we can make adjustments for special circumstances.

The “recommended” value here is for sponsored posts that you submit. Anything else, and you shoud inquire in advance.

How long will my sponsored post be on your website?

Once we publish a sponsored post, it generally will be on our website “for the life of this blog.” Which means that, in the future, if we need to stop writing this blog or if it changes hands the post will be taken down as then it will be out of our control. But unless there is some extenuating reason (such as excessively negative feedback for a particular post) we’ll leave it up for the life of this blog.

Do you offer refunds for sponsored content?

If, for some reason, your post is up for less than a year, we’ll do a partial refund prorated for the time it was “live” on the website. Otherwise, we do not do refunds for sponsored content and do not guarantee any particular amount of traffic or promotion. We’ll generally share our sponsored post on our social media channels.
