We here at the Smart Bitchery have been hard at work building a kickass community – so here is your opportunity to put yourself in front of that community. Our audience represents a worldwide readership of the romance genre, is mostly female, and is entirely awesome.

We’re retina conscious: New Ad Art Submission Standards

RETINA DISPLAYS: We want your ads to look lovely, even on the newest technology. If you’re unsure what a retina display is, here’s a link to the Wikipedia article.

K-SIZE: Also known as “Download Size,” this is different from dimension size. All non-animated ads should be submitted as JPGs, and regardless of dimensions, must be 100K or under. Animated ads should be submitted as GIFs, and should not exceed 300K (animated GIFS should be no more than 3 frames).

Flash ads are no longer supported.

Internet technologies are a constantly moving target. Unfortunately that target has moved in ways that are incompatible with Flash. One of the exciting directions that the Internet is taking us is more and more mobile access, which is one of the reasons SBTB got a facelift and went mobile. Responsive coding and Flash don’t like each other. This manifests in Flash ads not behaving themselves, and taking up more real estate on the page on small viewpoints than their well-behaved GIF and JPG counterparts. That throws the whole system off, and pushes lower ads down, which isn’t fair to the people who paid for positions below said Flash ad. Forcing the code to fix this, if it’s even possible, simply isn’t worth it—code can do magic things, it’s true, but not for free. Long story short, we don’t do Flash anymore.

We love our sponsors

What it Means to be a SBTB Sponsor

Sponsorship is one of the many ways that you can be part of the SBTB community. Sponsors keep the Bitchery mayhem hot and fresh by helping to fund content on the site, and in turn, that content includes featured linkage and a big thank you to the sponsor. Currently, the best examples of this are our Podcast posts:

Sponsors Make the World Go ‘Round

Smart Podcast, Trashy Books IconIf you’re interested in reaching our reading and listening audience, you can sponsor the podcast or the podcast transcript for a given month or for an individual episode (contact Sarah to get started!). We would mention a book or series and a line or two about it, along with the sponsor during the intro and the outro of each episode, and we’d feature the book you designate in the podcast entry each week. You can feature a different book for each episode, and we post a new episode just about every Friday. Podcast sponsorship and podcast transcript sponsorship is $300 per episode, or $1000 per month.

Supporters are Rock Stars

If you’re a fan of the show or of the transcripts and you’d like to become a Patron of Smart Podcast Trashy Books, please have a look at our Patreon campaign! For as little as $1 a month, you can help support the show and help us reach our goal to have a transcript for every episode in our archives. Monthly pledges come with rewards, some of which are very fun, and you can see the options at And if you’re a supporter of the show already, you’re made of awesome and everyone, especially Sarah, thinks so. Thank you!

Very Nice Numbers

In terms of our listening audience, it’s very difficult to quantify due to the myriad ways people access the podcast files and the apps they use to listen, some of which report and some of which do not. However, the numbers we do have make us very happy. We have about 20,000 total downloads of the podcast files per month, and each episode receives 3500-4000 downloads in the first month. Those numbers grow as more episodes are released.

More about Podcast Transcript Sponsorship

Sponsor our Podcast transcripts! After we record a Podcast we release a written transcript as well. Many of our readers prefer reading to listening, plus the transcripts help us ensure that the podcast content is inclusive for those who are hearing impaired.

The transcripts are tacked onto the Podcast post, and an announcement post is published to our main blog feed. Sponsoring the Podcast transcripts means that those announcement posts include a feature of YOU, your book, your organization, or company, or your favorite charity—whatever you want (within reason, see the point #4 above about inappropriate content).

As we expand the functionality of our website there will undoubtedly be new opportunities to sponsor SBTB content in various forms, so stay tuned.
