Why are we doing this?
Banner ads have long been one
of the conventional ways of supporting a website. However, that
means publishers have to be ready to accept ads at their sites
about everything from horoscopes to mortgage plans to casinos
that promise millions of dollars to lucky winners. We, at Journeywoman,
have never been very comfortable with that mode of marketing so
we've decided to rebel and completely stop running these ad campaigns.
What would we like to see in
Our goal has always
been to support the Journeywoman website by only displaying banners
that are both women-friendly and travel-centered. We imagine funky
messages, funny messages and serious ads -- all informing the
female and the adventuress who loves to hit the road.
Who is eligible to adopt a page?
We dream of clothing and travel equipment messages,
tourism board representation, touring opportunities, newsletter
publishers, hotels, travel book authors, phone cards, insurance
company offerings -- any products and messages that will make
our lives as women and travellers easier, better, and more fun.
How will it work?
With our Adopt-A-Page program
at Journeywoman your banner (with links included) remains forever
and ever and ever at the top of any page you choose to adopt.
You can pick these pages from Journeywoman.com's current or archived
articles, or you can reserve pages in upcoming articles. Whichever
you choose, every time that page is called up by a reader your
message will be there. Our aim is to put you in front of women
interested in your product or destination.
Fees for adoptions:
You supply the banner and request
the pages. We'll do the posting and those pages are yours.
5 pages -- $750 If you'd
rather adopt only one or two pages the fee is $200
BONUS If you are already a
classified advertiser, you can adopt any 5 pages you will receive
two extra banners free ($300 bonus). Want to know more about classified
