divine-scarf-patt-page2.png"Wow, my Ad has already paid for itself within the first half day! Anything else will be profit at this point. Very happy." -- Mary-Ann from Mary-Ann-Lammers Designs (a repeat Advertiser!)

"My ad on the SweaterBabe newsletter is the most effective advertising that I've done! My pattern made it to #1 on Ravelry, which just added to the exposure! I got a good boost in sales of my other patterns, visits to my website, people signing up for my newsletter, and quite a few facebook likes! This ad was a fantastic value for my business." -- Cheryl of Cheryl Beckerich Knits
Ravelry Patterns page - #1 from Pattern Picks Ad!

What is a Pattern & Product Picks Ad? 

It's a custom Ad where Independent Designers and Businesses selling Knitting-Related Products can submit patterns and products for promotion in the Pattern & Product Picks section of our popular SweaterBabe.com website and in our Pattern & Product Picks email newsletters.  New issues are posted once or twice each month. These are NOT small banner Ads included off to the side in a newsletter, these Ads are the features in the Newsletter!

Each Pattern & Product Picks issue (here is an example of one) includes ONE “Free Pattern” at the bottom of the email (Having one free pattern in each issue ensures higher open rates and FREE pattern offers get HUGE results with my list!), plus up to 6 patterns or products that are for sale.  All Ad slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

This is a great way for new, up-and-coming, or established Pattern Designers and Businesses selling knitting and crochet-related products to reach new customers online.

 

Benefits to Pattern & Product Picks Advertisers:

  • Direct exposure to our huge, global audience of passionate, stylish knitters and crocheters.

  • Website promotion of your pattern or product on our popular website in the Pattern & Product Picks section for one month (or indefinitely if you choose the "subscription" option!)

  • Email promotion of your pattern or product in our “Pattern & Product Picks” email that goes out to more than 60,000 subscribers! This is a highly targeted list of people who all want NEW and EXCITING knitting and crochet patterns and related products.

  • Valuable SEO links back to your website from our highly Google-ranked knitting and crochet patterns site. (Choose the "subscription" option for even more SEO benefits that can help your own site’s search engine ranking.)

  • More new knitters and crocheters visiting your site and hopefully purchasing your patterns and products!

  • More exposure through Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter, since your ad page will include the "Pin It" hover button over your Ad graphic, and the page will get posted on the SweaterBabe.com Facebook and Twitter pages.

 

 

 

Why Advertise in Pattern Picks

How Pattern & Product Picks Ads Work:

Submit your Ad Copy and your Ad Graphic using our online submission form.

Sample Ad page

We’ll use your own Ad Copy and Graphic to create your dedicated Ad page on the SweaterBabe.com Blog (sample shown at right), which will link directly to your sell or download page.

Ad pages remain on the site for one month (unless you extend that with the "subscription" option, see details below).

To create each email issue of Pattern & Product Picks (sample shown at right), we then collect summaries of each new listing into an email blast that is sent to our list of 60,000+ knitters and crocheters. 

Why should I “Subscribe” too? 

Choose the "subscription" option for a small monthly charge and your custom Ad page will remain on SweaterBabe.com beyond the initial month for as long as you wish your subscription payments to run.  

Keeping the Ad page posted on our popular website can bring you on-going sales and new customers.  The longer you leave the link from our highly-ranked website up linking back to your own website, the more your Ad's links can help boost your own site’s SEO and Google ranking. And at just $4.99/month to leave your Ad page up, one pattern or product sale per month can probably cover your cost! You can email us to cancel anytime and your Ad will be removed from the site right away.

What are the Ad rates and Issue dates?

All Pattern & Product Picks Ads currently cost $85 each for the one-month listing, then $4.99/month for the subscription option.  Ad slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
