The Unique and Exclusive Advertising Value
Of Best-Running-Tips.com Sponsorship



Best-Running-Tips.com offers unique, well-priced, custom-designed and targeted advertising options that reach your customer during the pivotal research stage.

This passionate, running-loving site is well visited by beginning and more experienced runners and people interested in their health and fitness levels.

It offers service providers, through the format of exclusive sponsorships, the opportunity to increase your business in your sector of the running, health and fitness niche.

Reach Visitors Before They Shop...

There are many offline ways to advertise your running store, coaching service, heart rate monitor supplies, dietician, injury-related and all other running and health-related services.

The common route is still to place ads in numerous glossy magazines and brochures. This can be a costly and ineffective exercise.

When it comes to reaching runners who are thinking of using services like yours, newspapers and magazines are transient, semi-targeted, limited geographically and in circulation. A PR piece may give a short-term boost. After that? Here today, wrapping fish tomorrow.

The largest disadvantage, though, of offline "pre-visit" print media, is that it is intrusive. It reaches your audience at a time when most are likely not considering to buy your services. On the Web, your running and health advertising reaches a highly targeted audience specifically when they are searching for running and health-related information about your sector.

The right website has the power to reach those highly-targeted customers, and more of them, 24x7x52.

It takes persistent, repetitive, and positive exposure by a trusted authority who shares the passion to deliver the results that your advertising dollars have long sought.

Why Advertise With Best-Running-Tips.com?

The starting and more experienced runner is typically looking online for running information. Many runners find best-running-tips.com on their search for information when they are at Google and type in certain search terms like:

    This site "patiently" waits, ready to reach your future customer when s/he does this Web research, whether it is at 2am in the morning or 4pm in the afternoon, whether it's in December or in August.


    Best-Running-Tips.com Reaches Your Customer Before They Buy

    The Unique Flavor of Best-Running-Tips.com
    Will Remain A Product Of Passion

    Best-Running-Tips.com was started in 2005. Since then, it has been a labor of love, a product of passion. I simply love running and I love helping others out.

    My favorite part is answering questions from runners, providing direct answers to the issues they are dealing with. The site provides in-depth running training advice and also lots of advice on good products to buy.

    Over the years, Best-Running-Tips.com has grown in popularity and size. Most people first discover Best-Running-Tips.com through 1 of the 700+ pages (and growing).

    Many "hang around" and come back time and time again as their running career progresses. I have helped people from zero minutes of running to finishing half marathons via the running programs on my site.

    Visitors enjoy the unique flavor of the site, often cherry-picking and printing out what to do when running. Many are long-time followers of the site, even contributing their own fascinating stories or asking questions. They are intelligent, engaged and intend to run for years and years to come. They are the audience you want to reach.

    This is not a "business" website or directory, so there are few sponsorship opportunities and I do not seek for exorbitant fees. Best-Running-Tips.com seeks a small number of quality partners, who want to create win-win-win (you-visitor-Best-Running-Tips.Com) promotional partnerships.

    Why is Best-Running-Tips.com limiting the opportunities? The philosophy is simple...

    "Never lose what Best-Running-Tips.com is all about... One man's love for running and teaching people about running."

    Sponsorship Opportunities and Rates

    Best-Running-Tips.com is accepting a limited number of sponsorships . You must truly have an excellent product or service.
