Starting today, Offbeat Home & Life has a new third-party advertising partnership with a great San Francisco-based company called Federated Media. I've known about these guys for years, and have a ton of publishing industry colleagues who've worked with them. My friend Choire over at The Awl referred me to Federated this spring, and after lots of conversations and obsessing over traffic and schemes, I've decided to bring Federated Media on as Offbeat Home & Life's advertising partner.
This is Offbeat Empire's archive of advertising posts.
Last week, I sent an email to all the Offbeat Empire staffers with the subject line: Required reading. The email contained a link to this post: State of the blog union: how the blogging world has changed. This post was written six months ago, but whatever: it's a big fucking deal. It spawned this enormous post.
A word of praise for Offbeat Home & Life's witty little sub-in adverts for when I have AdBlock turned on! It was a great reminder to whitelist Offbeat Home & Life, as I like to do for sites like this which I enjoy and wish to continue enjoying. I wouldn't have thought twice about it…
Halloween is over kids, which means one thing:
discount candy holiday shopping. If you have an online retail business that targets our kind of folks, this is your big time to shine. It's also a time when wedding decor can transition into awesome gifts. Possibilities! Here are some ways to lure an offbeat audience into your holiday campaign.
Hiya! Whew, what a week for us… I've been dealing with jetlag and a sick kid, the editors are still working on getting their new post-Families sausage-making processes smoothed out, and Kellbot the developer almost lost her mind over the number of bugs crawling out from under the skirts of the Offbeat Bride Tribe.
As always, however, it was a week of insight and awesomeness from Offbeat Empire commenters… so let's do another week of rounding up some of our favorite comments from across our three active blogs.
We love awesome feedback from our Offbeat Empire readers about our Offbeat Empire vendors. From Home to Bride, we pour a lot of love into every advertorial we write. That's why we're happy to share this amazing feedback from Tribesmaid stephanienjer about her experience with an Offbeat Bride floral vendor versus a non-Offbeat Bride floral vendor. (Hint: ours won!)
Wedding vendors! We already know that advertising with Offbeat Bride gets you the coolest clients. Clients that are fun, awesome to work with, and really make your portfolio stand out with their amazing fashion/venue/dessert/event choices. But did you know that your choice to advertise with Offbeat Bride also makes our readers lives easier?
