If you are interested in this sort of thing (which I am) I found my twitter stats pretty awesome for the 2017 TT Races.
I covered the fortnight, practice week and race week – live and had great fun doing so.
Then I had a look at the analytics for the fortnight and was pretty shocked.
I found the following :
@TomBoyNI had 57,408 Organic Impressions for the TT Race fortnight.
24,941 were for Senior TT Coverage! That’s just one race!
1402 Unique Hits from the UK and Isle of Man for the Senior Race Coverage!
So if you followed me during the Races or Practice, thank you. If not make sure you do so next time. I’ll be doing my best to keep you all up to date during the Armoy Road Races and the Ulster Grand Prix.
With the turn of the new year it is time to open up the tbni.blog sponsorship programme again.
This is very simple and also exceptionally good value for our sponsors (Prices start from FREE!). The sponsorship only runs until 31st December 2017 and resets itself in the new year to allow new sponsors a chance to get in.
What does it involve? Basically you get a slot on one of my panniers – (Details below) – for you to put your company logo.
You then get your logo / brand out there everywhere my bike goes and is kitted out with the boxes. You also get your brand / logo added to this site which attracted over 30,000 unique visitors in 2016. Remember though that these visitors are looking for this site and it’s content. We don’t buy visitors – our figures are genuine and only consist of people who are looking for information on what we post. The people you want to see your branding will, as all of our visitors want to be here!
You will also get exposure via the Twitter and Facebook Pages.
Revenue generated goes back into tbni.blog to keep it running, up to date and to enable the addition of new content.
For more information get in touch with us via :
or via this contact form :
All decisions on Sponsorship will be made by me – I will only endorse products that I feel to be useful / beneficial / fun and positive to this site. I will not enter communication as to why I feel your brand / logo may not be suitable or has been unsuccessuful in being selected for inclusion in this program. If you want to be added to the waiting list for this program then please let me know.
Last year for my #WAWIn1Week challenge I offered slots on my panniers to Companies to advertise their products / brand whilst I travelled along the length of the World’s Longest Dedicated Coastal Route in a record breaking 6 days* The uptake was great as was the feedback!
I have decided to do the same again this year and offer out my panniers for you guys to patch your brand onto the side of my bike as it travels round the coast line of Scotland in another time limited (and in my eyes record breaking)challenge of 2 days!
So what’s the catch? There isn’t one, however I do have to want to support your brand. It is my decision on what I put on my boxes. It is also free!
All you have to do is contact me, telling me a little about your brand (a website reference will do) and if I like what your are doing / about I will contact you back. Then you just have to get the sticker made up and sent to me. I will add it to my panniers and boom, there you have it, free advertising for you (whilst on the trip and in the subsequent photos and videos across FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube) and awesome looking panniers for me!
Charities are also welcome.
*I don’t know if it was actually record breaking but as I haven’t heard any difference let’s just pretend it was!
Further to my previous posting in relation to advertising spots available for my forthcoming #WAWIn1Week Trip I am pleased to share with you all the Pannier Slot availability. Please note this is subject to change and operates on a first come first served basis.
Please contact me to confirm and provisionally book availability.
The process is very simple :
1. Contact me and inform me of the positions you would like. There are two options.
a. A single slot.
b. A twin slot, which can only be a pair. So for example 2 and 2b, or 7 and 7b. Combinations of slots will not be accepted.
2. I will confirm availability and provisionally book you that slot.
3. You will then have your vinyl advertising stickers made up and sent to me.
4. Upon receipt your slot will be confirmed and your stickers added to my panniers.
5. Away we go.
A few other points…
Firstly Why!?! Thats simple this is my first such trip, but hopefully not my last. If I can cover this trip with some form of sponsorship, and this is shown in the associated media, it puts me in a much better position when the next trip comes along so I can approach people with a proven track record and hopefully some good reports from the sponsors, who knows next trip it may even be my current sponsors (you) who cross over to the the new plan! And also importantly I won’t forget my original sponsors when it comes to offers for the next trips, oh and of course there will be no expectation from anyone involved this time round to stay around. People always say if it is too good to be true it probably is. This is good and true, neither of us have anything to loose. I am looking to the future and trying to build a reputation and you are being given the opportunity of free advertising along the World’s Longest Coastal Route in Peak Season!
I am offering this as a freebie, from me to my sponsors. Therefore it is not open to everyone or everything. Put simply I am interested in motorcycling, tourist, travelling, well branded and trusted advertisers, but am more than open to helping out newbies in these industries.
No adult material will be accepted.
No pro / anti political, sexual, lifestyle, religious, non religious, sectarian, bigoted, racist, or in any way questionable (by me or otherwise) material will be selected. After all it is a freebie on my bike so to avoid any confusion, I have the ultimate and final say, if you don’t like that I’m sorry but you can always pay for your advertising elsewhere and then have the rights associated with it.
No contract is being made between me and you, I am offering some free advertising for you along a brand new tourist attraction, the longest coastal road in the world. 1500+ miles of free advertising along with my social networks and tagging etc. If I don’t make it, have to stop or turn around and quit I’m sorry but sometimes real life gets in the way. After all you have lost nothing it was a freebie.
I don’t want this to sound in any way negative it should be a great trip so let’s get it rolling rolling right.
With my #WAWIn1Week trip rapidly approaching I am looking some sponsors. Basically I am offering your company’s branding on a spot on my bike / helmet.
Believe this when I tell you the deals I am offering are unreal and start at… FREE!
Yes indeed… FREE!
I am offering limited sponsor spots for free on the panniers of my bike, so if you are interested in having your brand tour along the World’s Longest dedicated Coastal Route and one of the hottest places in the world to be right now please get in touch.
Spaces are of course very limited and all applications will be considered however my decision will be final and you contact me knowing and accepting that. No adult related sponsorship requests will be considered!
