Sponsored Posts – Written by US to Promote YOU
Only two per month available, so schedule your Sponsored Posts early!
Investment: $2,500 each; limited to three per company, per year.
Description: Every business day, we make 2-4 posts to the Rat Race Rebellion site – most are about legitimate work from home opportunities.
Unlike many sites that offer sponsored posts, you will provide the details about the position(s) you would like to have covered and we will actually write the post(s). We have a great rapport with our visitors and they know our “tone” and character. By writing these posts in-house, you get the advantage of being under our byline (let’s face it, an article written by a company rep is more likely to be perceived as an ad rather than objective information).
You will, of course, receive a mock-up for your approval before the post is uploaded to the site and distributed to our subscribers.
When your sponsored post is made, it:
1. Is announced immediately on our Facebook (96K+) and Twitter pages
2. Will be pinned to our Pinterest page
3. Will go immediately to the top position on our home page (As with all posts, it will cycle down the page with each post that follows it until it rolls to the archives where it will remain for at least six months.)
4. Will be promoted the following business day in our “Hot Posts” email (distributed to 175K+ opt-in subscribers) with a link back to the post
5. Will include a customized image
6. Will contain share widgets to encourage visitors to send the post to their friends and family
SPONSORED POST TERMS & LIMITATIONS:
- First and foremost, we must approve of the opportunity! Our visitors and fans trust us and we work hard to earn that trust. All opportunities will be carefully vetted to ensure they are legitimate and any that are not deemed appropriate for our audience will be declined.
- We will make no more than two (2) Sponsored Posts each month – making this an opportunity that is limited to 24 per year. This number may be increased at our discretion if it is determined that doing so will not have a negative impact on subscriber opinions, opens and clicks.
- No more than three (3) Sponsored Posts per company, per year with at least three (3) months in between those posts.
- Post dates are first come, first served so we recommend booking your date(s) as soon as possible.
- Sponsored Posts must be prepaid without exception. (For advertisers with a quarterly installment agreement for an annual campaign that includes a Sponsored Post, no post will be made if the account is delinquent.)

Email Blasts – Your Ad Copy, Our 175K+ Subscribers – An Advertiser Favorite
Our subscriber base has more than DOUBLED since last year but our rates have not!
Investment: $750 for one | $2,000 for three | $3,825 for six | $6,000 for ten | “The Max” 24 for $12,000
Description: Our opt-in subscriber base jumped from 90K to over 175K during 2017 and we get hundreds of new subscribers every week. This means that your investment today, will be worth more tomorrow!
Email blasts contain content provided by the advertiser so our subscribers will be sure to get your message the way you intended. You can include images, links, and as much text as you wish.
Who are the subscribers?: This includes our opt-in subscribers (individual job seekers) and also redistribution by career development professionals (who assist job seekers in finding jobs) at US military installations across the country, the US Department of State, the Church of Latter day Saints (who have hundreds of Employment Resource Centers across the US), other faith-based organizations, Veteran’s Employment Reps, and organizations like the National MS Society, the NY State Department of Education and many others.
Additionally, we have many producers, writers, and researchers for TV, radio, internet, and print media who subscribe!
EMAIL BLAST TERMS & LIMITATIONS:
- All ad copy and images must be provided by the company at least TWO BUSINESS DAYS in advance of the scheduled send date in order to allow time for mock-up and approval process.
- Send frequency – Advertisers are limited to a maximum of TWO blasts per month with no fewer than 14 days in between blasts. We have discovered that sending more frequently has an adverse impact resulting in (1) fewer clicks per blast, (2) increased unsubscribe rates, and (3) email being marked as “spam” by the recipient.
- All Email Blasts purchased for 2017 must be used by December 31, 2018. For this reason, it is better to purchase only the inventory you know you will use. Don’t worry though, if you need more during the year, we’ll make sure you get them at the rate extended to you at the time of the original purchase. (For example, if you purchased 10 blasts for $6,000 and you need to add six more blasts during the year, those blasts will be billed at a price of $600 each.)
Banner or Text Ad in Daily “Hot Posts & More” Email
Investment: $600/week; $1,600/3 weeks; $5,800 for 12 (one week per month, every month, for the full year)
Description: Every business day and Saturday, we send out our “Hot Posts & More” email announcing the posting of the day’s newest handpicked job leads and a recap of the previous day’s posts. This post goes out to our 90K+ opt-in subscribers.
For the duration of your campaign, your ad will appear in every “Hot Posts & More” email directly above the announcement of the day’s new job leads. (As indicated by the bright green block in the image to the left.) So, for a 1-week campaign, your ad will be sent SIX times to over over 175K subscribers. It’s a great way to build brand recognition!
You may place either a 468 x 60 pixel banner in this space, or a text ad of up to 275 characters and spaces.
“HOT POST” AD TERMS & LIMITATIONS:
- Advertisers are limited to one week per month in this ad position.
- All artwork and/or text will be provided by the advertiser.
- Advertisers may make one swap if they wish to “split” the week. For example, they may wish to run a banner ad for three days and then a text ad for the remaining three days.
