Branded Content Promotions
For all of our sponsored content opportunities we offer Branded Content Promotions where your article will be promoted on social media as a boosted post. Branded Content Promotions can be used in addition to an Sponsored Article or as a standalone post of your own content (photo, video, link, etc.)
- Facebook boost only
- Instagram boost only
- Facebook + Instagram boost
Branded content introduces your company under the My Boat Life brand. In addition to traffic to your article or website from the post, your Facebook and/or Instagram account that is tagged gets additional exposure.
For Facebook, MyBoatLife.com uses Facebook’s “Branded Content Tag“* that enables us to tag the advertiser’s Facebook page in the post. The advertiser will be notified, can access post-level insights, and will have the option of sharing and boosting the post further.
*Top of post will read: My Boat Life with XYZ Advertiser
Cost: Fee of $100 + your boost amount (typically suggested minimum of $25-50 – a boost is required to get visibility on Facebook)
Example: Sponsored Article ($125) with Branded Content Promotion ($100) and boosted for $50 = $275
Example Branded Content Promotion Only: $100 + boost amount
Boost will run for suggested timeframe of 10 – 30 days. Payment required prior to social boost.
