Hi, I’m Steve, the Founder of Military Disney Tips. I appreciate you taking the time to learn more about working with us.
By now, you probably know a little bit about me. This page will give you a good idea about how we work with advertisers and brands, so you can decide if we might be a good fit to work together.
What Makes Military Disney Tips Different?
We are Military and serve a US Military Audience. This includes current military members (Active, Guard, and Reserve), military retirees, veterans, and their spouses and families.
Most Disney sites skim the surface of this topic and have a page with very basic information about the military discounts that are available for a Disney vacation, if that. Some just cram their military info into general discount posts.
We live and breath these discounts, we use them ourselves, and we are very passionate about our community! We cover every aspect possible.
Learn More About Our Audience
Our readership is roughly 2/3s female, as often the military spouse is the individual planning vacations for the family. 58% of our readers fall within the 25 – 44 year old brackets, these are your current military members, while 36% are older.
If you’re interested in data like unique monthly visitors, page views, current social media follower counts and audience demographics, please download my media kit.
The Media Kit was last updated on 10 January 2020.
We’re Selective About the Brands We Work With!
We’ve been doing this since 2008 and have a great working knowledge of what works and what doesn’t in this very specific niche.
Our goal is to only work with advertisers and on campaigns that are a benefit to both the brand and our readers. We want our readers to find value in our content and for our sponsors to want to work with us over and over again.
Brands and campaign types that are the best fit with our readers:
- Disney Travel Related products
- Theme Parks and Attractions
- Modes of Travel (planes, trains, and automobiles)
- Travel Related Products and Services (luggage, travel tech, etc.)
- Disney Destination Related Services (strollers, scooters, etc.)
- Learning Tools for Disney Vacations
- Books, websites, etc.
Offering a military Discount is not required but is a huge interest magnet for this community! Brands that offer a military discount perform the best on Military Disney Tips! It goes without saying that your military discount should be better than discounts available to the general public, our community will call you on this.
We can guide you through the various eligibility statuses for our community to determine the target audience for your discount, as well methods of verification.
Our readers come to Military Disney Tips to learn about and plan for their Disney vacation. They are not in the frame of mind to buy unrelated merchandise or to hear about unrelated topics.
Brands and campaign types that would not be the best fit with our readers:
- General Public Merchandise
- Disney Merchandise (Sadly)
- Military Type Gear (flashlights, knives, camo gear, medals and ribbons, etc.)
- General Topics the Military Would be Interested In (four wheeling, camping, shooting, etc.)
- Medical Issues the Military Community Deals With. Our community is taking a Disney vacation to get away from the stress of military life or the PTS they deal with every day. They do not want to read about these things while thinking about a getaway!
Services that We Offer
Our preference is to work with brands on a six-month to one-year basis. Our readers have a better chance to get to know your brand more in depth when you’re presented to them multiple times.
Depending upon your goals and budget, we can design a brand ambassador program that incorporates blog posts, social shares and more.
If you want to test the waters before hiring us as Brand Ambassadors, we do offer a limited opportunity for on topic one-off sponsored posts.
Our sponsored posts come standard with one share to Facebook and Pinterest. More social shares and ad boosts may be added to the standard package. Please contact us for rates.
Social Media Promotion
If social awareness is what you desire, we will work with you to design a campaign to get your message in front of our social media followers so they can engage with it. Our social presence is mostly focused on Facebook, where our community resides. We have a much smaller presence on Pinterest and Twitter
We offer a variety of email marketing packages for our highly engaged email list, which can be bundled with our other services.
We are open to working as affiliates for brands with lucrative, relevant affiliate programs. Authenticity is very important to us, so keep in mind that we only promote products and services we have personal experience with.
Our banner advertisements are mostly handled by an outside agency. We do work directly with appropriate, on topic Brands for access to our premium spots. Please contact us for rates.
We don’t offer a standard rate sheet. Instead, we prefer to learn what each brand’s goals are and create a proposal based upon what we believe will help you reach your goals. And if you have a budget in mind, that will be extremely helpful because we can cater the proposal to be in line with your finances.
What We Don’t Offer
Please be aware that there are services we do not offer on Military Disney Tips. If you contact us asking about one of these services, you will not receive a reply:
- In-Kind Product Reviews
- Purchasing Do Follow Links
- Unsolicited Guest Posts
- Totally Off Topic Requests
- Link Requests From Those We Are Not Familiar With
- Undisclosed Partnerships
Oh, and we are not interested in switching Ad Networks! AdThrive Rocks!
Thanks for your interest!
