Advertise on VintageDancer.com

VinatageDancer.com is the perfect place to get your brand and products in front of an audience that is looking to buy now.  We seek to partner with USA and UK brands that promote vintage inspired clothing and costumes.  We offer a few options to advertising including product ads (the best option), banner ads, sponsored articles and social media shares.

Product Placement Ads

"Flapper Dresses" product placements

“Flapper Dresses” product placements

Get your best selling clothing included in VintageDancer.com Shopping Comparison pages. Product ads convert better than banners and have a larger reach than sponsored articles.

This is the best options for small or mid-size retailers who do not have an affiliate program. (See Affiliate product placements below if you have an affiliate program. )

  • Choose from a minimum of 5 product placements stating at $10 per product, per month. Discounts are offered for 10, 15 and 20 item placements. (Less than 5 products is possible but with some limitations.)
  • All product listings run for 3 months (90 days) at a time. You can cancel after 1 month if not satisfied.
  • You can choose which products you want to place or let us choose based on our data of what is selling well right now. If an item sells out you can replace it with another item at any time.
  • All product advertising includes social media mentions and blog article inclusions as it fits the topic of the week. Giveaways and reviews can also be arranged.
  • Product listings include a product image, item name, price and your logo (Etsy.com, Ebay.com and Amazon.com hosted shops will only display the etsy, eBay or Amazon logo) Product images will look best if they have a vertical orientation. We use the pictures already on your website.
  • Products are listed on all appropriate product categories. For example, a “1950s dress” may also be listed with “Swing Dresses,” “Retro Dresses,” “Tiki Dresses, ” “Pinup Dresses” etc   We give you as much exposure as we can. 
  • New products are added to the top of the page and move down as other new products are added. This keeps the listings fresh and most likely in stock.  When ads are renewed new items selected (or repost a best seller) listings are moved back to the top of the pages.  If you place more than 5 items in one category we may choose to space out your listing over several days.
  • It will take 1 to 5 days to get your products listed.
  • You can use your own Google Analytics or similar tracking software to see how much traffic you are receiving from VintageDancer.com. We can provide you will click counts from our own internal software as well. Amazon, Etsy and Ebay shops can also include sales counts.
  • Examples of Advertiser Traffic (Clicks)
    • Advertiser 1: 5 products, 1-2 categories each, 700 clicks per months
    • Advertiser 2: 10 Products, 2 categories, 1,000 clicks per month
    •  Advertiser 3: 10 Products, 3-5 categories, 2,400 clicks per month

For online retailers who have an affiliate program with at least a commission rate of 10% we may not charge additional advertising fees. To get your products listed with us please contact us with the following information:

  • Are you part of an Affiliate Network (CJ, Shareasale, Linkshare, Amazon, etc)? If so which one?
  • Do you run your own in-house affiliate program? If so please send us the link to sign up.
  • Do you have a datafeed? Is it updated at least monthly? If so this will make it MUCH easier for us to add your products to the site.  If no datafeed we can still work with you it will just take a few days to set up.
  • We will select items from your product listings that we think will sell well. If you want to choose items to list you will need to pay for the placements.

If we feel your product offerings do not significantly meet the needs of our customers we may choose not to work with you.

Interested in starting your own affiliate program? If you want a managed solution we recommend Shareasale. If you want an in-house program there are many to choose from.
