JUST ADD COLOR is open for sponsorships and advertisements

Let’s be honest: One of the things that hampers indie entertainment blogs or just small blogs in general is being able to make money. The challenge creating a self-sustaining blog that can be used as a full-time career has certainly been one of my biggest challenges. But that’s going to change. Starting now, JUST ADD COLOR is openly seeking advertisements and sponsorships.

For advertisers

If you’re an advertiser, here’s why working with me will help you advertise your business or project:

JUST ADD COLOR has a growing Twitter presence, with 2,164 followers and growing

• JUST ADD COLOR is part of a grassroots network of influencers reaching an intersectional, socially-conscious audience 

• JUST ADD COLOR has a audience 69.5 percent female between the ages of 18-34, aka “millennials.” This is the demographic most likely to purchase items based on the value they provide to society on a socially conscious, meaningful way.

For loyal readers

Now, for those readers who are concerned about how advertisements and sponsorships will affect the site, let me lay out how it will help me.

As I wrote above, one of the challenges in running a website is figuring out how to make money from it. As you probably already know, several people who have niche websites still have to have a full-time job to be able to pay for the bills, including me. But, while having a full-time job helps me keep a roof over my head, money in my wallet, and food on my table, it also takes away valuable resources (namely time and energy) that could be used for writing, promoting, and further enhancing my site. What sponsorships and advertisements can help me with is 1) give me a clear pathway to make JUST ADD COLOR my full-time job, 2) with the worry about money lifted, I’ll have enough time to write all the posts you love reading plus have even more financial resources I can use to fund the site and its various needs or projects (such as buying movie tickets or products for review, taking care of any website issues, etc.). In short, I’ll be able to devote all of time to providing great content without having to feel stressed.

In fact, here’s one way you as a reader can help me right now: Make sure to spread this blog post around to anyone and everyone you know who are looking for websites to partner and advertise with. Let them know that JUST ADD COLOR is open for business. If you can spread this to the folks in your circle looking to do business, then that’ll make my quest to make JUST ADD COLOR a fully sustainable site even easier and quicker.

Happy 2016! Welcome to JUST ADD COLOR!

Welcome to 2016! JUST ADD COLOR (originally known simply as COLOR) has seen its first full year in operation, and to head into its second year, there seemed to be no better way to ring in the new year than with a brand new magazine. COLOR BLOCK Magazine aims at giving you even more quality content, available for free download.

This year, JUST ADD COLOR will give viewers tons of content, lots of fodder for discussion, and hopefully it’ll give you some new ideas for how you think about the state of race and culture in entertainment. It’s not traditionally thought of as a “civil rights” issue, but representation in films and movies is, in fact, a civil rights fight. I’d say its one of the biggest, yet most underrated, civil rights fights, and the more people we have educated about the importance of representation, the faster we as a society can move towards an future in which everyone can see a version of themselves on television.

I hope 2016 brings tons of good things to JUST ADD COLOR and COLOR BLOCK Magazine, and I hope 2016 brings tons of happiness and cheer to you, too. Happy new year!
