An Advertorial is a paid for post on MyZA.
You have the choice of two types of Advertorial:
- Written by YOU – $10.00
- A review written by a MyZA Staff Member – $50.00
Why an Advertorial?
- All advertorials appear on the front page and their detail page is just like this one – i.e. NO SIDEBAR which gains your message maximum exposure. (Click here to see an Advertorial: Drugs – I Want my Life Back)
- Advertorials may contain direct, follow links to your web site.
How to submit and pay for an Advertorial:
- Click HERE to proceed (new window)
- Select ‘Paid Reviews’ for purchase type and click ‘Continue with Purchase’
- Select ‘You’ for ‘Post Author’ if you are submitting an article written by you.
- Fill in the form (at present we only accept Paypal payments – you can pay using a credit card via Paypal).
- If your South African city or town is not listed in the category drop down then ensure that you include the name of your city or town in the ‘Post Tags’ section.
- Submit your article with HTML tags.
- Include images by referencing them on your web site (maximum width is 600 pixels and try to keep the size to less than 100 kilobytes)
- When you are happy with your advertorial then proceed to the Paypal checkout.
- MyZA will check your self penned advertorial for relevance – if the advertorial is not deemed relevant then we will return 50% of your money to you.
We do not accept any articles that do not have any relevance to South Africa at all. We do not accept articles that contain divisive or hate speech, pornographic material or any content engineered to make the ‘ordinary man’ uncomfortable.
Of course we are looking for a certain standard and would like your Advertorial to adhere to Internet Writing 101:
- Answer the 5W’s and 1H: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How.
- Be objective (keep opinions and ‘flowery language’ out of the story).
- Get your facts right.
- Don’t plagiarise.
- Give credit where it is due.
- Cite references.
- Provide URL’s so that your readers can discover more.
- Rather be accurate than first.
- Start with the most important facts first and follow with supporting information.
The press releases that gain the most attention adhere to the above guidelines, are entertaining and are NOT pure sales pitches.
