Advertising and Sponsorship Information

Introduction: Why Advertise with QCBaseball.com?

If you sell baseball products online then you've probably been spending money on Google adwords, hoping to get your ad in front of interested customers and hoping you don't get hit with click fraud in one way or another. With QCBaseball you are able to advertise on a site that is a content rich destination site for coaches, parents, players, and administrators involved in youth baseball at all levels. If you sell baseball related products and/or services then advertising on QCBaseball presents a great opportunity to get maximum value from your advertising dollar.

Please take a look at our advertising information and if you have any questions please email me at don@qcbaseball.com. If you would like to talk it over in person, just send your phone number and I'll be happy to give you a call.

Advertising is sold on a yearly basis only. I do not sell ads month to month.

Site Section Breakdown

Advertising rates are determined by site traffic for specific areas of the site. Below is the breakdown that is used to determine advertising rates.

* Graph represents Philosophy, Situations and Baseball Rules sections of the web site.

Ad Types / Rates

In addition to the standard ad types below (starting with banner ads) we also sell content advertising and page advertising. We offer discounts for advertising in multiple areas or multiple ad types. Please contact us with your areas of interest and we'll provide a specific quote.

Content Advertising

Content advertising allows you to provide some useful information to our audience by writing an article for the site and at the same time you get to introduce your product and services to our site visitors. You will also be featured in the what's new on the home page along with being added to the menu system and to our blog, facebook, and twitter updates. Please contact us prior to creating content as it has to be approved before it will be accepted. As a general rule the ad must provide something that a coach/parent can use by reading the article and must be appropriate to the section, not just advertisement copy.
