How to book your spot
Send us an email to advertise[at]makerstations.io and share the following:
Provide us with your full name and billing address as an individual or registered business. Please also give us your tax identification number if you have one. We’ll never sell or share your data with anyone else. We only need this information for invoicing and tax purposes.
Pick the date you’d like to book. You can check the availability in our calendar. Please ensure that there’s at least a one-week gap for us to confirm all the details. For example, if you submit a request for a website banner on August 10th, the earliest start date available would be August 17th. Assuming we approve your request and receive payment on time, your banner will be displayed on Maker Stations’ website from August 17th to September 16th (for 30 days).
Tell us which advertising format you prefer. For the website: Main Banner, Side Banner, Top Bar Banner or all of them. For the newsletter: Main Sponsor, Short Shout-Outs or both.
Ad copy, visual assets, and description. Share your desired copy, a logo, or other related imagery, along with a brief description of the product, service, or any other content you would like to promote through Maker Stations. All ad copy is subject to approval. We may edit it internally to meet Maker Stations’ quality and tone of voice standards (but we’ll make sure you’re happy with the ad, of course).
We carefully review every submission within three business days. If you don’t hear back from us by then, it means we’ve decided not to move forward with your ad enquiry at this time.
We accept payments through PayPal and can also handle bank transfers if you’re UK-based.
