MARKETING / OUTREACH

With more than 220 original articles, the Greek Liquid Gold website is promoted through social media marketing, especially on the companion Greek Liquid Gold: Authentic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Facebook page and via article sharing on other Facebook pages. Greek Liquid Gold also appears regularly on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Press releases, articles, and updates are sent to American, Canadian, Australian, and Greek (English-language) publications. Outreach continues to old and new contacts in the USA, Canada, UK, and Australia via social media and email, and thousands of business cards are distributed to foreign tourists at specialty shops and hotels in Greece, to importers and buyers at expositions, and to interested New Yorkers in the Big Apple. Reaching tens of thousands of readers in more than 195 countries, Greek Liquid Gold has received especially noteworthy attention in the USA, Australia, Spain, and Greece.

For example, American and Greek embassies and consulates have mentioned Greek Liquid Gold on their Facebook pages and elsewhere. New York's Total Food Service published a press release about the site, and Mercacei published two of them. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette focused a Food Column on it, Greece Is published an article explaining its origin, and articles from and about Greek Liquid Gold have been featured on the International Olive Council’s Olive News Scoop.It page and republished on the websites of NeosKosmos (Australia), The National Herald (USA), Hellenic News (USA), Greek Reporter (international), and Tornos News, among others. Advertisers are invited to respond to questions for Greek Liquid Gold articles that include comments on general issues related to olive oil, which usually means extending the advertisers' visibility far beyond the website when articles are republished elsewhere (with permission).

ADVERTISING OPTIONS

1.) BANNER AD (for most businesses and organizations)

A 270 x 270 pixel banner ad (a square stable jpg file) provided by the company and linked to its website, to be displayed in the right column of the homepage or in the right column of another section of greekliquidgold.com, including its corresponding subpages.

The number of subpages, indicated in parentheses after the section name in the bulleted lists below, depends on the number of subcategories (such as Vegetarian Dishes, Other Main Dishes, Salads, etc., under recipes), and on the number of original articles or recipes in any given category (such as News or Competitions & Awards). The numbers listed in parentheses below are approximate, since the number of original articles increases as articles are added to the website.

The banners will appear in sets of three which will be randomly rotated into the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd position, near the top of a page or farther down on a page. Banner ad spots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Since some spots that appear full may be available very soon, please inquire about those that interest you.
