Affiliate Sales

Sponsored Articles

It is also possible (strictly at discretion of the webmaster) to have a Sponsored article published on Neowin that promotes product(s) and/or links (nofollow) to a keyword and/or product website. If we go ahead with the article, it can be published on a date and time of your choosing and it will also appear on our X (formerly Twitter) and Facebook feeds.

Such articles are not "pinned" or promoted in our Promo grid at the top of the main page. It does appear at the top of the news feed on the main page, and scrolls down the page as new news appears after it.

Cost and Terms

The cost for such an article is $400 excluding PayPal fees of 4% (rounded off to $420) and must be paid in advance of the publication date. Advance payment on articles that have not been granted permission to appear on Neowin by the webmaster via email will be rejected.

Why We Display Advertising

Neowin is in every sense of the word a two way street, the visitors ensure we can stay online by visiting and allowing the ads to display (ad blockers are detected by our publishers and we don't get paid for blocked ads). It's our duty to invest that revenue back into the site as we've been doing, which has in turn offered stability far beyond anything we had before 2005.
