FREE PROMOTION

Link exchanges

For the most part, we don’t do link exchanges here at A Luxury Fashion Blog.   However, we do make an exception for like-minded bloggers.

A Luxury Fashion Blog is happy to exchange links with other regularly updated, good quality, established  blogs specialising in any kind of travel or  blogs with a focus on  luxury issues.   If you run such a blog and would like to  link to  this site in return for a reciprocal link, then please contact us. Blogs only, please. If your site is not a blog of the nature just described, then please don’t contact  us about a link exchange.   Instead, read on…

Press releases

We receive numerous press releases here at A Luxury Fashion Blog (and we mean numerous!!!!).   We get too many, in fact, that most don’t make it on to the site.   If you are a PR agency or  an individual with  something of media interest, please contact us first, requesting guidelines of how best to approach us with media releases.

Guest blogging

We welcome members of the **luxury travel** industry to get involved with A Luxury Fashion Blog, and act as guest bloggers.   Put simply, blog here with items of interest  and we’ll return the favour with a link to your business. A number of you already do this and, in return, each published blog entry is accompanied with a single line about you, along with a link.   There are some guidelines that guest bloggers need to adhere to so, if  this is  something that would interest you, please get in touch and we’ll send you further information.

Interviews

We have semi-regular ‘interviews’ on A Luxury Fashion Blog.   You will find examples here.  They add a little interest for our readers whilst at the same time act as an opportunity for  some additional publicity for the interviewee.  To be eligible, you must be involved in the **luxury travel** industry in some guise, and be of a senior position (Director, CEO, etc.).   If you’d like to take part, do please contact us.

Suite of the week

If your hotel/resort has a special suite (eg. a Presidential Suite) that you would like to see featured on the blog, then please contact us for details of how to be included in our regular (and very popular!)  ‘Suite of the week’ series.

Photograph of the week

If you have a special photograph – it could be or anything from your travels but must have a ‘Wow!’ factor – that you think would be of interest to A Luxury Fashion Blog readers, then please contact us.   We’d be happy to look at it and, if accepted as ‘Photograph of the week’, the publication of the image would be accompanied with a bit about the image and a link to your own website (whether or not you are involved in the travel industry).   This is open to everyone but is of particular interest to photographers looking to raise the profile of their work.   The photographer of course  retains all rights to any images submitted for inclusion.

Recipe of the week

Perhaps you are a chef or run a restaurant and would like a little recognition  for your creations.   Send us a ‘Recipe of the week’ and, if published, we’ll gladly link to you in return, by way of acknowledgement.   We’re looking here  for top quality recipes – for  dishes (savoury or sweet) that might be served in leading restaurants.

Special features

If you are looking for an in-depth, first-hand  review of a **luxury travel** service or product  (this could be anything from a top  hotel or resort, to  a gadget that’s of interest to **luxury travellers**), then please contact us with details.   Our ‘Special Features’ section shows you the kinds of items we have reviewed to date.

Competitions

By running a competition through A Luxury Fashion Blog, you can generate a lot of interest and increase your profile markedly. If you can offer a suitable prize (an all-expenses weekend stay in a hotel, dinner for two in a restaurant, a couple of airline tickets, or anything else  that you think would be of interest to readers), then  please get in touch and we can discuss the specifics of what you would like to do.

The above  sums up the numerous  free promotional  options that are available via A Luxury Fashion Blog.   If you are still looking for more free ways to promote your travel business, you might like to refer http://www.aardvarktravel.net/morehits (why not get involved over at Aardvark Travel’s Luxury Travel Forum, for instance?)

If instead, you are looking for paid opportunities to really get yourself noticed here at A Luxury Fashion Blog, then read on…

PAID  PROMOTION

Please note that, to comply with Google webmater guidelines, all paid links from A Luxury Fashion Blog carry the ‘nofollow’ tag.  This protects both this blog and advertisers from risking a Google penalty.

Graphical links

You can have a graphical link (125 – 125 pixels, JPG or GIF only) in a prime location on the site, close to the top of the right hand navigation column which appears on every page on the site.   At the time of writing (May 2008), there are 3,330 pages on this site that Google has spidered.   (You can check for the latest number at any time, by following this link.)

These advertisements cost £75 (click here to see this sum in US $)  per month or part month  (+VAT if you are in the UK), with a minimum advertising term of 12 months, paid up-front.

The renewal date for  graphical link  advertising  is 31st  December each year.   If you begin an advertising campaign part-way through the year, then your ad term must continue to 31st  December of the following year. ie. if you were to begin an advertisement in September, you would pay for September, October, November and December of that year, and for the 12 months that follow – an ad period of 16 months.  If you would like to advertise, contact us.

Text links

You can have a text link on every page on the site. These appear further down on the right-hand navigation column but are again found on every page on the site.These advertisements cost £50 (click here to see this sum in US $)  per month or part month  (+VAT if you are in the UK). (The same rules  as above apply.)  I reserve the right to review ad pricing (upwards) at any time, depending on demand.   However, any advertisers who already have advertisements running will of course have their purchase price honoured until their  ad term expires.

The renewal date for  text link  advertising  is 31st  December each year.   If you begin an advertising campaign part-way through the year, then your ad term must continue to 31st  December of the following year. ie. if you were to begin an advertisement in September, you would pay for September, October, November and December of that year, and for the 12 months that follow – an ad period of 16 months.  If you would like to advertise, contact us.

Q. I would like to advertise with  either a graphical link or a text link,  but for a shorter time period. Is this possible?

A. Sorry, no.   The reason for this is that  we wish to spend  our time updating the blog with new content rather than continually adding new – or deleting old – advertisers.

Luxury travel links of the week

Every Sunday morning, the blog features 4 **luxury travel** links of the week.   To appear in this list in any particular week is a  one-off fee of just £39 (click here to see this sum in US $).  Such links must  relate to **luxury travel** and are subject to approval.    If you would like to advertise, contact us.  In the event of there being no advertisers in any given week, the links will simply be of our own choosing, on a non-commerical basis.
