Sponsor

 

Afri-love is a space for inspiration, tips and reflections on creativity, entrepreneurship, pursuing passion and making things happen. All from an African and diaspora perspective.

As an advocate of entrepreneurship, I am happy to offer affordable sponsorship opportunities for individuals and businesses who serve those interested in African arts and culture, as well as those who provide products and services that support entrepreneurs.

Afri-love readers are international with the majority residing in the US (25%*) and UK (18%*).
*As of September 8th 2013

Editorial opportunities

I will only accept sponsors whose product/service/offering is relevant and valuable to my readers. As such, I’m happy to discuss ideas for featuring your offering via a special post (e.g. an interview, guest post or giveaway). Book a space for 6 months or more and take advantage of this opportunity to present your offering in a creative and ‘native‘ way.

 

Getting the most out of your ad

Afri-love readers are discerning when it comes to design and presentation. You may want to consider the following when preparing your ad:

  • Choose one striking, high-quality image that captures what your offering is about (feel free to send me up to 5 and I can help you decide)
  • If you book a space for more than 1 month, I’m happy to change your image each time to keep your space fresh and dynamic
  • You may want to add a code in your ad to track where your visitors are coming from or to offer them a special discount

If you are interested in having your ad designed by professionals, my company, Asilia is offering a special package for Afri-love sponsors. Get in touch for more details.
