|I am thinking about getting a sponsor for the 'travel shop' that I run within the website. Basically holidaymakers can book travel insurance, flights, car hire etc. What I would like to maybe do is promote the sponsor company on every page within the travel shop, that's current pages and all new ones, full promotion in the newsletter (around 3,000 subscribers), and a sponsor link on all of the property advertisements (around 1,000 pages)
I have an idea how much I would charge a company for this type of promotion, but are there any dangers I should look out for - what are the disadvantages and advantages of sponsorship of a particular area of a website?
How much would you charge?
I cannot see any disadvantages to it because all I see advantages in that I will have additional money to promote and market the website better - but I am sure there will be some bad points to this.
What are your thoughts?
