Sponsorship Opportunities

Leading Notes was founded in 2010 as a place for big thinkers in music education to share their big thoughts and relaunched in 2014 by co-founders Nick Jaworski and Justine Dolorfino. The site has always been a labor of love and we are looking to drastically increase the amount and depth of content on the site.

To help facilitate this transition and move into the future, we are looking for corporate partners to support the site as we ramp up our production schedule. Though we could first look to align with Google Adsense to monetize our website, we are committed to providing a great user experience for our readers. We want to make sure that any sponsored content or ads would enrich our site rather than detract from it.

How can my company support Leading Notes?

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring Leading Notes!

Current opportunities include display ads, sponsored content, and site-wide sponsorship. We’re flexible and interested in finding a sponsorship solution that represents your company and our site well. You may choose a combination of options depending on your budget and marketing goals.

Please contact justine@leadingnotes.org directly to discuss your interest and monthly or quarterly marketing budget.

Display Ads

Display ads will be present on each page of Leading Notes’ site and can be placed in either the sidebar or footer. Assets will need to be created by your team and can link to any portion of your website. You may provide new display ads to replace older assets when able.

The following display ad sizes are available:

  • 300×250
  • 60×600

Sponsored Content

Sponsored content, up to five per month, would be published in relevant categories on our site (e.g., “Music Education in Practice,” “Band/Orchestra,” “Technology”), written by your team or Leading Notes staff, and reviewed for quality by both parties. A disclaimer would be added to each article to indicate that it is presented by our sponsors and your company would be indicated as the author. In addition, the Leading Notes team would promote sponsored articles on its social media and email marketing channels, noting that the article is sponsored.

Site-Wide Sponsorship

With site-wide sponsorship, the Leading Notes header and footer sections will be altered to add prominent link text such as: “Sponsored by _______.” These sections will be present on each page of Leading Notes’ site.
