Sponsored Posts

Interested in advertising more sporadically?  Maybe a specific event, special or promotion? We also offer opportunities for sponsored posts with two affordable options:

1) Write Your Own -  If you have a local business and would like to share an upcoming event, promotion or sale with our readers, we are happy to consider sharing a sponsored post.  Sponsored posts are written by the business and may include a link to your site.  Posts must be less than 600 words and contain no superlatives. It will be posted and subtly marked as a 'sponsored article' on our site and then promoted once on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  The post must be submitted prior to payment for approval and content must meet the needs/desires of our readers. We generally approve no more than one Write Your Own Post per week.

2) Sponsored Post Written By SanDiegoVille - A SanDiegoVille writer will review a company’s products, services or event and will draft a custom post to share with our audience.  The copy is forwarded to the client for approval, then posted as an article on the site subtly marked as a 'sponsored article', and shared once on our Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Contact us to share your story now!
Sample dedicated email
For an additional fee, we will share your post, whether drafted by you or SanDiegoVille, with more than 16,000 email subscribers (and growing!). A custom, dedicated email will be sent at a date and time of your choosing, with a link to the article and event/business page.

Sponsored Social Media

Use our Facebook of Instagram to market your company! We can publish a post to reach area residents with specific interests and schedule it to run for as long as you would like it to. Use our brand to promote your business! We also can generate and run custom Snapchat filters to be seen and used at specific events, festivals, businesses, etc.

Same story posted at nearly the same time and the Union-Tribune has to sponsor theirs to even get close to
the same impressions as us at SanDiegoVille. Look at the stats - one was organic, the other was paid for. 
Media Outreach/Public Relations

Do you need a press release drafted? Do you want to reach San Diego's top media insiders, journalists, and influencers? We know them all and can help! Get the word out about your business, restaurant, or even a new special on the menu.

SanDiegoVille will host a giveaway campaign for a product, service, gift card, pair of tickets, etc., which will be included within the context of a sponsored Write Your Own post. The giveaway can run for up to 20 days.  The contest will be posted within the sponsored article on our website and shared on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  Shipping or distribution of the winning item is the responsibility of the sponsor.

Restaurant Profiles and Confidential Assessments

We've dined at countless restaurants around the city and the world, from the most upscale locations in Paris and Dubai to street carts in Guatemala and Mexico. Want us to do a profile of your restaurant? Reach out for consideration, and if approved, we'll not only write an article to be published on the site, but we'll also send you a confidential analysis of our experience, considering everything from the food, service, plating, decor, ambiance, and cleanliness to the nit-pickiest of details and beyond for the absolute improvement and benefit of the establishment.
