Sponsorship opportunities are available on Comps and Calls that provide an inexpensive and cost-effective effective way to reach the Internet’s creative writing and self-publishing community. There are precious few other ways online to directly access this community and audience.
Monthly update sponsorship: Key to Comps and Calls is the monthly update of listings and we accept a single sponsor each month. This offers the following:
- a text or graphical ad at the top of the posting (400×300 pixels);
- a brief “thank you” from Cathy in the preamble to the listing;
- a text sponsor’s message in the email notification service;
- two separate “thank you” mentions on our increasingly popular Facebook page – the first 24 hours after the listing goes live, and another two weeks later.
Banner advertisement: Spots are available in the right-hand gutter of the website at typical ad sizes, including “skyscraper” if desired. We prefer graphical ads for this spot, although text adverts are possible. We offer free-of-charge help designing the ad if requested.
Tip jar: If you haven’t got a product or service to advertise, and just want to thank Cathy for her hard work creating the site and its monthly updates, consider dropping a few dollars into her tip jar!
Both sponsorship and banner advertisements cost significantly less than you might think. Interested? Drop webmaster Keir (firstname.lastname@example.org) a line!
About Comps and Calls:
Comps and Calls was founded in February 2014 and is compiled by the author Cathy Bryant. It is the web’s only listing of free-to-enter writing competitions/contests and calls for submission, all of which can be entered online and not via post/mail. Included in Writer’s Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers, and The Write Life’s 100 Best Websites for Writers, the site is accessed by thousands of individuals each month, all of whom have a specific interest in creative writing and self-publishing.
