Thank you for supporting TAFA as a sponsor!

Your financial support helps us continue to provide services and grow as an organization!

Get the most out of your investment!

We have set up a unique way of advertising what you do by using a widget which you can change up to once a month. This is an actual page on our site where you can have any content that you want to. It’s perfect for newsletters, workshop schedules and can support javascript (like Etsy minis or other widgets that you might use). This content needs to be easy for me to copy and paste.

Newsletters:

If you have a newsletter, send me info where I can subscribe to it and I will copy the info (no more than once a month) to your sponsor spotlight. My email address is rayela@comcast.net.

Web content:

I can copy and paste almost any web content, but the formatting might not stick. We can try it and see what happens.

Links: 

Send me the social media links that you want to include on your Spotlight.

Top image:

Send me an image that will be the display image for your Sponsor Spotlight. This image does not change. It can be any shape and should be at least 800 pixels wide, saved as a jpeg at 72 dpi.

Facebook:

I have set up a schedule for Facebook promotions, twice a month. You will be added to that. Send me your Facebook link if you are there and I will share something recent from your page when it comes time to promote you. Tip: try to post something new and interesting at least once a week. Don’t abandon your page or you will lose your following…  If you are not on Facebook, I will share from your website.

Gold Sponsors Banner:

This displays at the bottom of the Home Page, flashing and linking to your site. Image size needed: 1200 x 300 pixels, 72 dpi

 

Tip: Add your TAFA widget updates into your calendar so that you do not forget to get them updated. This is especially important if you are not using a monthly newsletter or have a web page featured on your sponsor spotlight.
