Contest / Giveaway Sponsorship with Lead Generation
This is an exciting part of Platinum sponsorship — a contest/giveaway with branding, lead generation and data collection. Each contest lasts for 1 month. It is promoted in Diabetic Gourmet Magazine, our email newsletters and sent to our giveaway announcement mailing list.
The contest page is designed by us (and approved by you) and includes brand info, survey questions, links to sponsor’s content, etc. It also provides a spot for entrants to opt-in to be added to the sponsor’s mailing list. All entrants are directed to the sponsor’s website after entering (for guaranteed click-through’s). You can find more details and a screenshot here.
A study from the Marketing Science Institute finds that content-integrated advertising is the single most effective tool for convincing consumers to make purchases on the Web. The results highlight the payoffs for companies that contribute and integrate content into online media. Diabetic Gourmet Magazine sponsorship provides a multi-faceted solution that embeds your brand into the mind of our readers.

Recipe Content Integration
Recipe integration is perfect for brands promoting food products. If this does not apply to you, or you just don’t want to include recipes, then choose one of our Lite sponsorships.

(final 5 components)
An exclusive sponsorship means that your brand will be the only official sponsor from that product category/type. For example, if you offer a diabetic-friendly pasta, then we will not accept any sponsorships from your competitors. This requires a platinum level sponsorship and a 20% premium. It also includes keyword listings in our search system. Any time someone searches our site, a sponsored listing will appear above the results for selected keywords (view example: pasta).
Sponsors can login to view detailed statistics.
Stats can also be emailed or downloaded (spreadsheet).
