As a not-for-profit academic venture, SHERM recognizes the importance of partnering with like-minded enterprises. Thus, we have created several options that would be mutually beneficial to our partners by increasing traffic to both of our websites, gaining a dedicated followership, and advertising both of our services. Best of all, most of the partnerships we offer are free!

If you're interested in partnering or advertising with SHERM, choose one of the options below and email the SHERM editor with your choice to discuss the details.

Free Partnership Option:


1) Mutual Website Advertising

Details:


  • As a Friend of the SHERM Journal, we will place a logo and link of your choice on multiple pages of our website with an endorsement encouraging our readers to visit your website and services.
  • If you have a blog or other social media accounts, SHERM will follow each of your accounts, as well as publicly share, retweet, and repost your work.
  • In exchange, we ask that you place a medium-sized image of the SHERM journal on the main page of your website with a link to our website and a small endorsement encouraging your visitors to read our journal.
  • Also, we ask that you follow SHERM's social media accounts and publicly share, retweet, and repost our notifications as they become available.

Benefits:


  • Free advertising!
  • Increased traffic to both of our websites.
  • Increased "crawler" activity from major search engines to scan our websites.
  • Brand-name recognition across multiple platforms.
  • Introduction of our services to potentially new readers and clientele.
  • Wider exposure and dissemination of our social media accounts, including tweets and blog posts.

Free Partnership Option:


2) Mutual Sponsorship Advertising

Details:


  • As an Official Sponsor of the SHERM Journal, we will place your organization or website's logo in a prominent position at the footer of every page of our website with an imbedded link to your services.
  • We will also give you the opportunity to place a full-page advertisement in each issue of SHERM for as long as our partnership remains current. This advertisement will appear in both the print and online edition of each SHERM publication.
  • If you have a blog or other social media accounts, SHERM will follow each of your accounts, as well as publicly share, retweet, and repost your work.
  • If you are an academic-based organization whose services could streamline or assist in SHERM's mission (e.g. an online citation generator, etc.), then your services will be explicitly mentioned (with links to your website) in SHERM's official documents, such as the Author Guidelines.
  • If you have Amazon products for sale, we will place an advertisement of your Amazon products on multiple pages of our website.
  • In exchange for these services, all we ask is that you place a medium-sized image of the SHERM journal on at least two pages of your website with a link to our website and a small header encouraging your visitors to read our journal. The header could read, "Proud Sponsor of SHERM Journal," or it could be as simple as, "See Our Advertisement in SHERM Journal."
  • Also, we ask that you follow all of SHERM's social media accounts and publicly share, retweet, and repost our notifications as they become available (which will be few in number and predominantly only announce the publication of new issues).
