BluffParkAL.org Sponsorship Guidelines
In order to be a sponsor on the BluffParkAL.org web site, a business must meet the following criteria:
- The business must be based
in Bluff Park. The coverage of the business can be outside of Bluff Park, but it must be based inside of the Bluff Park area of Hoover. For example, Robert's Discount Pharmacy and CVS are both drug stores in Bluff Park, but only Robert's is based in Bluff Park. CVS is not, therefore CVS could not be a sponsor of BluffParkAL.org. Exceptions - if the business is known to and has a record of sponsoring community activities.
- MLM businesses: Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) Businesses like Southern Living At Home, Pampered Chef, Avon, etc. do not qualify to be sponsors.
BluffParkAL.org does not charge a "sponsorship fee" to their sponsors. The sponsors, however, agree to help with either cash or in kind contributions when BluffParkAL.org has their yearly community parties/get-togethers. The contribution is usually $100 in cash or $200-300 in-kind contributions to use as door prizes.
BluffParkAL.org will do the following for their sponsors:
- Place a button on the BluffParkAL.org main page (also known as the "home page" or "index page"). This button will be designed by BluffParkAL.org with artwork submitted by the sponsor. The appearance and information of the button is up to BluffParkAL.org with input by the sponsor.
- Place a 3-4 paragraph "bio" of the business on the Business Profile web page of BluffParkAL.org. This bio will be submitted by the sponsor and should include as much information about the business as possible, with emphasis of why the business is based in/located in Bluff Park.
- Place a business listing on the Business Page of the BluffParkAL.org web site with the sponsor's name, address, phone number, e-mail address and web site URL under the proper category.
- Feature the sponsor on the Business Page on a regular basis. We rotate all of our sponsors on this page.
- Give the sponsor the ability to post on the BluffParkAL.org Forum Business category. This can be used to advertise special sales, events, etc. that the sponsor may be holding.
- Provide the sponsor with a banner for the sponsor's site
letting their visitors know that they sponsor the
