Sponsored Stories

We can work with you to create a sponsored story to run on AirlineReporter. Costs will depend on a number of variables and starts at $495.00. We will work with you throughout the entire process to make sure that you are satisfied with your story before we hit publish. Some of the options we can discuss:

  • Length of story and who would write it (you or us)
  • Number of links and where they point
  • Sharing your story via our social media channels
  • Thinking outside the box, like creating a contest, to maximize engagement
  • When the story will be published

Here are some recent examples:

  • TripStreak: We worked with them to offer a model giveaway. Not only was there high engagement (almost 100 comments), the owner was able to get feedback on his product from our readers. This has been our most successful sponsored story format to date.
  • IndentGo for TSA Pre✓®: We took bullet points that they wanted touched upon and wrote the story in our voice to better connect with our readers. This resulted in a win-win for them and our readers to learn about their services.
  • Travelport: This client wanted a copy and paste of their press release and we added in their video and graphics to match their look and feel.
  • Legacy Building Solutions: They wrote their own custom story for AirlineReporter and we helped with making it fit to our tone and audience.
  • APEX Passenger Choice Awards: We wrote this story in our voice, working with APEX, to motivate our readers to vote.

Let us know some of the basics that you are looking for and we can create a custom price list for you to consider.
