Advertising Opportunities

We frequently get questions from local businesses in our community about advertising opportunities with Sierra Moms. This page provides an overview of the types of advertising opportunities that are available. We look forward to helping your business grow by sharing it with our large and highly targeted membership and online community. If you are ready to begin the process of placing an advertisement, or have further questions, please email the Sierra Moms’ Advertising Coordinator gro.s1508811109momar1508811109reis@1508811109gnisi1508811109trevd1508811109a1508811109.

Current opportunities include:

1. Platinum Sponsorship Program

This is an annual organizational level sponsorship open to any type of business that the board feels is consistent with the goals and mission of Sierra Moms. Sponsors gain advertising and promotional access to Sierra Moms online and print communications and events; in return Sierra Moms receives funds, expert content, and material goods that are used to enrich programs, events and other benefits for our member families. Number of partnerships accepted is limited. More details about this program.

2. Advertising in The Crier, our monthly e-newsletter

The Crier is sent to all Sierra Moms members as well as anyone else who elects to receive it. You can view a copy of our most recent newsletter issue here. As of July 2015, we have approximately 250 subscribers. Advertising prices and guidelines with additional details are available online. Ad space is limited. Ads must be submitted in publish-ready form.
 
Subject matter experts are also welcome to submit articles on topics in their field that are relevant to our members. Inclusion will be at the discretion of the Newsletter Editor and our Director of Communications.

3. Big Tent Classified Ad

A more economical way to advertise, with no submission deadlines, is through a classified ad posted on the Sierra Moms member’s only website, Big Tent (this type of classified will not appear in The Crier newsletter). Classifieds cost $10 for every 50 words, per month for non-members. Photos can be included and are an additional $5 per image for non-members. Sierra Moms members are able to post classified ads for their own businesses or items for sale on Big Tent at no charge. Sierra Moms members are not permitted to advertise businesses or items for sale on behalf of a third party.

4. Children’s Activity and Preschool Expo

Sierra Moms organizes the annual Children’s Activity and Preschool Expo (CAPE) to provide a showcase for local preschools and children’s activity business. More than 300 families have attended this free, public event in recent years, where they connect with more than 60 exhibitors. Businesses can participate as exhibitors, event sponsors, food vendors, entertainers and more. Email our volunteer Expo Coordinator at expo (at) sierramoms.org to ask to join the outreach list for the next CAPE.

5. Business Discount Partners Program

You can add value to the Sierra Moms membership by becoming a Business Discount Partner. Sierra Moms offers this free directory for local businesses who wish to offer a discount on products or services for Sierra Moms members. There is no additional cost beyond your discount–there is no publication fee to be listed in the directory. In addition to the free online listing on our website, a current list of Business Discount Partners is mailed to every member once a year, and Partners may be eligible for other free advertising and benefits. Take a look at the current directory to see what sorts of discounts are commonly offered, and complete our easy online form to become a Business Discount Partner.
