Many people, when they first meet me and discover I’m a blogger, ask how I make money. Well, one of the ways is by having advertisers on my blog. The wonderful businesses who currently advertise on Flowerona include flower schools and a floristry college. And their adverts appear in the right hand column on my home page. I’ve decided to open up some more advertising slots. So if you might be interested in placing an advert on Flowerona, I thought I’d give you a little bit of background information to help you make your decision.
Who reads Flowerona?
The majority of my readers are female and they’re based in the UK. The next biggest readership is in the United States, followed by Australia. Florists, floristry students, flower growers, garden designers and lots of people who simply love flowers read my blog.
Last month, Flowerona had over 25,000 unique visitors and received over 55,000 page views…the highest monthly figures ever! On social media, I have over 5,500 followers on Twitter, over 2,000 likes on Facebook, over 1,200 followers on Pinterest and over 940 followers on Instagram.
Some lovely words from current advertisers:
“I no longer pay for any advertising at all except my ad on Flowerona. It is targeted entirely to my potential customers, simply put–everybody who reads her blog loves flowers! Flowerona is fast becoming the ‘must read blog’ for anything to do with the world of flowers so I feel it is important to be there too. I like the way customers can click easily through to our website which is, after all, our shop window. Good rates, good target audience, respected site–what’s not to like?!” Georgia Miles, The Sussex Flower School
“Flowerona has provided a brilliantly relevant audience for us to promote our floristry courses to. The volume of traffic generated onto our site as a result of our advertisement has been fantastic. We initially tested a three month advert and was so impressed by the stats that we immediately invested in a further 12 month advert. We will continue to support this excellent blog in the future!” Craig Emery, Writtle College
Advertising on Flowerona takes the form of a banner advert and they are available in two sizes:

They can be purchased for a period of 3 months, 6 months or 1 year, with payment required in advance.
