All certified companies that produce, bottle, and/or export bottled and branded 100% Greek extra virgin olive oil are welcome to take advantage of all the advertising and sponsorship options on Greek Liquid Gold. Other relevant businesses and organizations are invited to become sponsors or purchase banner ads. Since Greek Liquid Gold's target audience is largely Anglophone, businesses that have English-language websites will benefit most from advertising here, although Greek Liquid Gold can also introduce companies to Anglophones.

MARKETING / OUTREACH

With more than 165 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 Google+, 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, 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 readers in more than 170 countries, Greek Liquid Gold has received especially noteworthy attention in the USA, Australia, Spain, and Greece.

For example, Mercacei and New York's Total Food Service each published a press release about the site, 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 beyond the website when articles are republished elsewhere (with permission).

Bonus for olive oil company advertisers: invitations to respond to questions for Greek Liquid Gold articles that include comments on general issues related to olive oil, which means extending the advertisers' visibility beyond the website when articles are shared on social media and (in many cases) republished elsewhere.


2.) IN-DEPTH COMPANY PROFILE (for Greek olive oil companies)

A one-time charge of 250 euros + VAT for a company profile (which may include a product presentation) of a total of up to 1000 words based on information companies provide, but written or edited by Lisa Radinovsky (contributor to Olive Oil Times, Greece Is, Greek Reporter, Seabourn Club Herald, Lancaster Online and other publications, experienced writer and editor with a PhD in English from Duke University, USA). Two or three very horizontal photos (jpg files) will also be included: one large, one small, and one small introductory photo for use on pages linked to the profile.

The profile will remain on the site without additional charge as part of an information database to help make this site the go-to place for Greek olive oil information. (For the same reason, a free listing of company names and website links will be provided on request to anyone producing certified 100% Greek bottled and branded extra virgin olive oil.) The in-depth profile will be introduced on the Greek Liquid Gold Facebook page, and its introduction (with a photo) will appear on the Greek Liquid Gold website homepage for at least three days after appearing on the site (and generally much longer), as well as being permanently introduced on another page on the site. Profiles will be written on a first come, first served basis, as soon as possible and as time permits.

Bonus for extra exposure: a post about your company or product(s) on the Greek Liquid Gold Facebook page at least every two months, with a link to your profile.

Bonus for olive oil company advertisers: invitations to respond to questions for Greek Liquid Gold articles that include comments on general issues related to olive oil, which means extending the advertisers' visibility beyond the website when articles are shared on social media and (in many cases) republished elsewhere.

3.) BANNER AD (for all relevant businesses and organizations)

A 270 x 270 pixel banner ad (a jpg file) at the right side of the page, 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 Greek Liquid Gold website page and its corresponding subpages.

The number of subpages, indicated in parentheses after the main page name in the bulleted lists on the next page, 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 current as of mid December 2018, although the number of original articles will increase as I add 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 the page or farther down on the page. Banner ad spots may be selected on a first come, first served basis; some spots that appear full may become available very soon, so please inquire about those that interest you. A wait list will also be developed for preferred spots.

There are three different basic banner ad rates which relate to the popularity of the pages and visibility of the ad (near the top or farther down on the page). For those who wish to display banner ads on more than one page (in the case of the homepage) or more than one set of pages (in all other cases), there is a discount, as explained below the bulleted lists on the next page.
