The Austin Alchemist has been serving the Greater Austin Community since July 27th, 2010.
We utilize Facebook and email marketing to let our community know about your offerings. If you have a holistic, metaphysical or spiritual business and/or events, this is a great place to be found. Check out our Success page to see what others are saying about their experience with The Austin Alchemist.
Note: We only cover local events, news, and businesses in the Central Texas area. Please read the Advertising Guidelines before submitting your listing.
Practitioner and Business Directory Pages
The Austin Alchemist offers local practitioners a page in the Practitioner Directory and local holistic businesses a page in the Business Directory. The cost is $69 for the first year, then $29 annually to host and maintain after that. Directory pages include a picture (of you or your logo), all your contact info, a link to your website, and a description of your offerings. Then your page will be inserted under the table categories of your choice, usually three.
$9 weekly event ads
These hard-working ads are posted on The Austin Alchemist in the left-hand column for visitors to find, posted to our Facebook fan page, added to the calendar of events, and will go out in TAA email news on Thursday mornings. They are specifically for events that people can physically attend and are just $9 per week per ad.
Use this form to send me the info for your event.
Please note: We are not open on weekends or holidays. The deadline for event ads to get into the Thursday newsletter is the previous Friday by noon. Ads are worked on a first-ordered, first-served basis. To maximize your coverage and investment, the further in advance you place your order, the better.
For more guidelines about these ads, please read the Advertising Guidelines.
Special Note: Advertisers must currently live, office, or have an event occurring in the greater Austin area. If you aren’t sure if you’re close enough, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Weekly want ads
These ads are posted on The Austin Alchemist in the left-hand column, intermixed with the weekly event ads. Each ad is shared to our social media outlets: Twitter and Facebook fan page (unless you request it not to be) and will go out in TAA weekly email news on Thursday mornings.
Use this form to send me the info for your want ad.
Want ads fall into three main categories and are priced accordingly.
- Commercial listings for job postings, sales specials, businesses for sale, requests for applicants, etc., are $12/week and receive a double social media campaign.
- Personal sales ads for locally used BMSH-related and tangible items (i.e., selling your personally owned crystal bowl, tarot cards, BMSH books, rattles, and drums, etc.) are $9/week.
- Personal “Seeking” or “Wanted” ads for local BMSH-related and tangible items are subject to approval and are kept short and brief in nature. However, these ads are $9/month.
We only accept body, mind, spirit, and holistic community-related ads – interests that are unique to our community. We do not accept ads for general auto sales, relationships, dating, etc. Though we will accept personal community ads for rooms for rent.
Regardless of the type, all want ads and their listing titles must be approved and must comply with our advertising guidelines. If you have questions, just reach out and ask! ;)
If you are interested in placing a want ad, please contact us directly to discuss your advertising needs. email@example.com.
Sidebar display ads
As we transition our site to a new design – we have newly sized sidebar ads!
These ads are found in the right-hand column, (300×200). The investment for these ads is $99 for three months. I can create the sidebar ad for you (additional fee for creation) or use your ad copy. These display ads can link to your website or your post on The Austin Alchemist. These ads can be for practitioners or events. The sidebar ads are static so your ad would appear on every page viewed.
Header banner ads
This 565×100 ad is found at the top of the site in the header. It is sold on a weekly or monthly basis, at a maximum of one month per ad. (In other words, the banner cannot be purchased for more than a month for any one event.) The investment for this ad is $50 per week or $199 per month. This ad is also static and is visible on every page. I can create the header ad for you or use your ad copy. This ad can link directly to your website or event registration page. We also have a front-page banner that becomes available when the site header banner is taken. It only shows up on the front page. If you are interested in this, please contact us directly. Please email me to discuss your advertising needs. firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Austin Alchemist has grown so much in 10 years! As has our SEO and social media presence! Our economical ads pack a punch, but there’s definitely more we can do, for the discerning client in need. The Austin Alchemist is basically a ministry and a giant case study in marketing. I’ve specialized in social media marketing and relationship strategy for artists, non-profits, creatives, and local companies since 2007. As an early adopter, I’ve been part of the social media marketing game since its birth, and have developed reliable marketing assets for our TAA community that I can also leverage for our clients. I can share more about the reasons behind why TAA is structured the way it is and why our listings are so economical (if you really want to hear more), say if you invite me for tea or coffee sometime. But suffice to say if you need more, I have more to offer. We just need to discuss what those needs are. So… if you are a serious client interested in more comprehensive marketing services, wishing to maximize your impact and coverage within our community in Central Texas, please email me directly to set up a chat to discuss your advertising needs. email@example.com
