Advertising & Giveaways

I've streamlined my sponsorship opportunities to include the best laid plans for increasing exposure for all involved quickly and effectively. That's why I'm dedicating all of my efforts to one special sponsor of the month and hosting strong giveaways monthly.

Sponsor of the Month

If your blog or brand matches the style and personality of The Modern Austen and you want to amp up your readership organically, consider sponsoring TMA for an affordable price. You'll receive specialized attention and loads of extra promotional opportunities for an entire month. Check out the Ad Shop below for more information. *Note: Please consider TMA's audience before purchasing. I reserve the right to deny and/or refund purchases that do not fit the blog's aesthetic and/or purpose.

Monthly Group Giveaway

I'm so excited to introduce this option to everyone who wants a quick and easy way to gain followers and discover new blogs and brands! Each month, I'll be giving away a "bigger" prize, made possible by smaller funds provided by interested bloggers and brands; in return, their social links will be added to the entry form. The more bloggers participating and more funds raised, the better the exposure for EVERYONE. For example, the last group giveaway I participated in drew in over 9,000 entries and I watched my Facebook page skyrocket in a matter of hours. Check out the Ad Shop below for more information.

On sponsorship . . .

"Marissa exudes class and professionalism and she was a pure joy to work with during MDC Artistic Designs's sponsorship. She constantly delivered what she set out to do or said in our various communications. She showcased my online jewelry shop in various media outlet such as Facebook, Pinterest, and several times in her blog posts which favored increased traffic to my shop and blog as well as brought new followers to my Facebook page. I, in turn, am a new fan of The Modern Austen." - Marlene, Jewelry Designer & Owner of MDC Artistic Designs

"Sponsoring The Modern Austen was a wonderful experience. Marissa was great help. I could tell she wanted to do as much as she could to get the word out about my blog. I would definitely sponsor again. Thanks, Marissa!" -Sara, Sincerely, Sara

On Brand Campaigns . . . 

"I want to just let you know that you did an AMAZING job on your post! I'm so impressed! Your photos were super high quality, I loved your side by sides that showed off different aspects of the piece, and your first pinnable image. I also really love how you found and linked to each piece you bought, listed the price, the savings, and the Shop Your Way points. Your story was also great and very easy to relate to--I'm a non-runner turned want to be runner myself and think a color run would be so much fun!" - Nicole Elliot, Campaign Leader for SearsStyle Everlast campaign

 "Thank you for your great post about the tablet with Intel. You did a fantastic job sharing why this tablet will fit into your lifestyle and all the features you plan to use.
