What You Get As A Sponsor:
When you purchase a sponsorship in CRE Daily, your brand receives a 100% share of voice with no competing ads. That’s right. We want to make sure your message is impossible to ignore.
Each newsletter has two major stories where we break down the most important headlines of the day. Your native ad will go between these two sections that blend seamlessly with the rest of the newsletter.
Your logo will also be prominently placed and hyperlinked at the top of the newsletter, accompanied by a short mention from the editor.
🎁 BONUS: Your sponsorship will remain live forever on each newsletter as they are published on our website. Why does this matter? Because once the article is indexed in search engines, your ad will continue to be exposed to users long after it runs in the newsletter.
🎁🎁 DOUBLE BONUS: As a new partner, our editor will personally give you a special mention on LinkedIn, accompanied by a custom-branded image, announcing our collaboration. Additionally, this announcement will be reshared across the social platforms of CRE Daily.
Here’s an example of how it might look…
You’ll be responsible for writing the copy, providing image creatives and hyperlinks for tracking. But don’t worry if you are not a digital marketing guru. Our creative team works directly with you to help craft compelling copy and messages perfectly tailored for CRE Daily’s tone and readers. And in some cases, write the copy for you.
