Do you need to advertise wine or another luxury good, but you’re not sure you want to finance a complete campaign? The Palate Press Advertising Network is pleased to announce the first of its kind Time Share Ad Campaign. Buy one share in a campaign or buy all ten. As soon as the whole campaign is committed we will load load it and start it running. Each ad will run independently, so viewers will not know that you only purchased part of a campaign. Here’s how it works:
- Tell us how many shares you want to buy, from one to ten. Every share costs $30 and gets 2500 page views in a month.
- Tell us how when you want the ad to start, and where you want it to be viewed. We can geo-target by city, metro area, State, and country.
- Send *.gif, *.jpg, *.jpeg, or *.png graphics for at least two of our three standard ad sizes, 160×600, 728×90, and 300×250.
- Tell us where you want the ad to link.
- Tell your friends and associates about us, because the sooner we sell all ten shares, the sooner your ad will run.
The form to participate in a Palate Press Advertising Network Time Share campaign is below.

Cognac is such a complex region, and a complex drink. It is easy to think of it as a refined after-dinner snifter, but it is that and so much more. There are very few limits (please see the rules, below) to what you can write about Cognac. Write about the product, the grapes, the wine that makes it different from every other distilled spirit. Write about the terroir, or Cognac cocktails. Just write to win.
Cognac is the starter for cocktails, traditional stand-bys and modern creations. What are your favorite recipes, and where did you first discover Cognac in cocktails?
Cognac does not have to wait until the meal is finished. What are your favorite pairings? Do you use Cognac in special recipes?
Cognac, at its core, is France, the country, the region, the town, the history.
Cognac is wine. It is the grapes, the distillery, the cellars.
Now go write a wonderful story about Cognac, and win a trip to this beautiful, historic region. Do it now. The cat says so.
The contest is sponsored by The Cognac Board, with the support of the European Union and France. There are a few legal requirements for your story to be considered by the judges.
- Please, no talk of sex.
- Please, the stories should not be about, or mention, “white” Cognac.
- Stories should not relate to specific brands. The Cognac Board’s task is to promote the appellation, and cannot be seen to support an individual brand.
- Only U.S. bloggers may participate.
- Please submit stories to Cognac@palatepressads.info prior to publication. The Cognac Board’s legal department will quickly review, not to edit, but only to assure they can include the entry in the contest and affix their logos. Upon approval from the Board, we will respond with the logos and legal disclaimer to be included with the post, as well as unique StatCounter codes for each entry.
- The first round of judging will be based upon how many page views the post receives, so the sooner you post, the more you can promote the post and get seen.
- The second round of judging will be done by a panel of judges from the U.S. and France.
- The last day to enter is April 10, 2011.
Good luck, and please help us tell everybody about it on Twitter.
