SPONSORED ARTICLES & PRODUCT REVIEWS
We accept sponsored articles and we do product reviews. A sponsored article has a fee (see below). A product review is free if you send us the product free of charge. Please note that our readers rely on our honesty and genuine opinions, so we will highlight positives as well as any negatives of your product.
The article or review will be placed on the Scenic blog with an SEO friendly direct (do follow) link to your site. The article may also contain pictures. Additionally a summary of the article will be included in one issue of our newsletter Moto Intel Report, with a (indirect/wrapper/no follow) link to your site and a link to the full article on the Scenic blog.
The Scenic blog has around 10k unique, highly engaged, visitors per month. The vast majority of visitors find our blog through Google, by searching motorcycle related content.
Moto Intel Report (the newsletter), is sent out between every month to two weeks (depending on the season). It's distributed to over 32k, motorcycle riders. Every issue contains quality, hand curated links and commentary. Each issue offers just one sponsored article, so as a sponsor you can be sure that your link is not fighting for position with any other sponsored articles. The article will be featured prominently between the other articles.
The combination of the article on the blog and the summary article in the newsletter works really well to get your products and services noticed.
It needs to add value to our audience so MUST BE MOTORCYCLE RELATED! For an example of the kind of content on the blog and in Moto Intel Report see the latest issues here. Topics range from Epic Routes, Motorcycle Gadgets, Motorcycle Clothing, Bike Comparisons, Bike Maintenance, Ride Reports, etc.
About the audience:
Our blog is visited by highly engaged and enthusiastic motorcycle riders.
People subscribe to the newsletter by:
- registering an account in the Scenic App upon which they receive a verification email, where they can explicitly opt-in to the newsletter or
- by explicitly entering their email in the subscription dialog on the MotoMappers blog, upon which they receive an email to confirm their subscription.
Due to these explicit double opt-ins the audience is highly engaged. As a result our open- and click rates are significantly above industry average.
Before booking please read this:
- Just like the non-sponsored content, each sponsored article or product review should be highly relevant to motorcycle riding. Articles and products which are not relevant will not be accepted.
- Your sponsored article / product review will appear on the blog and a summary will be included in one issue of the newsletter. The summary newsletter piece will contain an (indirect/wrapper) link to your site and a link to the full article on the blog.
- For the sponsored article, you get to write the article and optionally provide a picture. We will then review, proof-read and make suggestions on your copy for deliverability.
- For product reviews, as our readers rely on our honesty and genuine opinions, we will highlight the positives as well as any negatives. Of course we will send you the review before so you can check it before we publish.
- Visits to your link can be tracked through the use of Google "utm_source" parameters which will be automatically appended to your link if you want. The utm_source will be "scenicapp". If you use Google Analytics on your web site this will automatically be tracked.
- For the sponsored article, an invoice will be sent through email, providing a payment by credit card link. Payment must be made in full before we publish.
