In case you’ve missed it: the cron.weekly newsletter is back!
I’m about 6 issues in to the new season and I feel I’ve gotten a good flow going. The boring stuff is automated, the toolchain is solid and I’m enjoying writing once again. 💪
Next steps for cron.weekly
Now that everything’s going smoothly again, I want to explore sponsored content again. If you have a product or service that you would like to promote to an eager audience of Linux users or open source & web developers, get in touch!
I’m picky about who I accept and who I don’t (sorry sponsors). There needs to be a match between the audience and your service, otherwise you’re just burning money and I’m losing credibility.
I want this to be a win-win for both of us, you know. 😘
What can you promote?
I’ve been thinking about the content of the newsletter some more recently, and have come up with this list of valuable, relevant content to consider.
- Product or service announcements
- Job listings
- Events & conference promotions
Historically, sponsors have always been promoting a product or service directly.
However, in a market where getting noticed as an organization to skilled engineers is increasingly more difficult, promoting a job listing might have additional value.
I’ve already listed several conferences to promote them, adding a commercial layer on top of that makes sense.
I feel the rates are reasonable, you can look at the metrics of the newsletter & the advertising rates on this dedicated sponsorship page.
If you’re interested, reach out! 😉
