ExploreDance.com priority press release and event posting service

Ad options (same price for any option)
INCLUDES: Twelve months of having an ExploreDance.com staff member post any press releases and event listings desired (note that while postings can be for almost any event, the press releases and listings themselves should use language appropriate for a general audience - the editors reserve the right to withhold publication for items considered inappropriate, which so far has been very rare). We promise to have your press releases and event listings live within 48 hours of receiving them.

An annual fee of $100, plus $30 per hour for the posting of the press releases and event listings themselves. Depending on the complexity of the press releases, about 4 to 7 press releases can generally be posted in an hour, assuming there are no pictures to be processed. Pictures are allowed in press releases posted with this service. This package includes the annual fee plus three hours of processing. If you already have a 12 month ad package at the time that you purchase the priority press release posting service, you get 7 hours of processing, and if you are extending your posting service, you get 7.5 hours of processing (only $25.33 per hour).

PayPal is also accepted, and all transactions are securely processed by PayPal.

Notes and Conditions:

Ad sizes:

Commissioned articles: Commission articles about a specific dance company or topic. This can be a review, preview or interview. The only catch is that a dance company can not pay for an article about their own dance company. However, recommending another dance company and paying for an article about that company, and then getting that dance company to pay for an article about your dance company is perfectly fine. In each such commissioned article, the advertiser will get a line in the header of the article saying the equivalent of "This article was recommended and sponsored by [advertiser]. Articles about [advertiser] can be found here [link] {this sentence will be included only if applicable}. Check out [advertiser's] website here [link]." It is also understood that all commissioned articles will be written to the same honest, but supportive standards ExploreDance.com uses for any article of a given type, regardless of who is paying for the article.

Creation of ads: The advertiser would supply appropriate graphics and other information for the ads. We can have our graphic designers create new ads, but that would be extra.

Payment due dates: All full payment options are due within 30 days of signing the contract, and we will generally provide the partial month between receipt of payment and the first of the next month for free, especially on 12 month packages. For monthly payment options, the first payment is due within 30 days of signing the contract, and subsequent payments are due within 30 days of the 1st of the relevant month (e.g., if the second month starts on March 1, the second payment would be due no later than March 31). The advertiser agrees that payments received after the 30 grace period are subject to collection fees, which will consist of ExploreDance.com's collection costs plus 5% of the amount owed, but if payments are late and no collection costs have been incurred, the advertiser can avoid collection costs by paying an equal number of future payments early.
