Free of charge to you, we can post an advertisement on our homepage for one week increments on a regular basis, in rotation with other advertisers. If you are looking to enhance this and to make a bigger impression on our readers, we can work on an agreement for cross promotion of our site and offers to your audience in exchange for blogs posts, newsletter features and social media promotion from us, to accompany your advertisement. A complete list of the services we can provide and details about each is below for your review. Our trade agreements with community partners are tailored to the business or organization we’re working with. Some examples of cross promotion we seek are social media sharing, website links and advertisements, giveaway sponsorship, goody bag sponsors and there are many more. We enjoy being creative and working for results that truly help all parties involved.
Advertisements are available in a variety of sizes, as well as in a variety of placements, both on our homepage and other specific pages, including the Blogs, Kids Eat Free, Restaurants, Local Deals and Auto Dealer Guide to name a few. All advertisements will click through to your website and we will provide Google Analytics to you regularly, upon request, to ensure we’re accomplishing your goals.
Your business can be featured in a blog post, highlighting specific information you’d like our readers to learn about. You can contribute an outline of content for us to organize or an exact write up for one blog post or a series of blog posts. For example, your first post can introduce your business to our readers, a second post can provide professional tips and pointers and a third post can invite our readers to visit your business. This is just an example. With your input, we will happily share your desired content with our readers to highlight your business in an attractive and enticing way, including images and links.

Goody Bag Sponsorship
Each month, through the event sponsorship we offer, Tally Connection delivers goody bags to the hands of locals at various community events. Recipients love all of the goodies included in these bright yellow bags and we love your help with filling them. Supply us with any quantity of coupons or marketing items you’re comfortable with, on a regular basis or when the time is right for you. We’ll stuff the items in our bags for you and deliver them all around town, helping to promote your business in a way that gets you noticed.
Want to get even more attention? Be on the bag itself! We order a new supply of bags quarterly and your advertisement can be featured directly on the bag itself. We feature up to six ads at a time in this way and ask that you share the cost of the bags evenly among all participating, including ourselves. The cost typically ranges between $125-$175 depending on the best deal we can find and how many total participants we have for that order.
