AUDIENCE INSIGHTS

Information regarding audience and blog traffic are collected via Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel plugins. These tools are operated by bodies outside of DoSask.com.

GUEST POSTING

Guest contributors are invited to write posts occasionally. The authors of guest blog posts are displayed both in the byline and in a short bio at the end of their article. Guests posters are not compensated. Digital marketing masked as a guest post will not be accepted.

The views discussed in guest postings are those of the guest author and do not represent, or reflect DoSask.com.

ADVERTISING

Exclusive and non-exclusive paid display advertising from both regional companies and Google AdSense are available. Depending on your budget, there are a few options to be featured on DoSask.com.

SPONSORSHIPS

Sponsored posts are available to advertisers and include a statement of disclosure at the top of the individual post. These posts offer an exclusive feature, or a topic discussion related to the brand plus images. The statement of disclosure clearly outlines what form of compensation took place. Sponsorships may influence the topic of discussion in the post. They also include social media promotion.

Date ideas blogs are not sponsored, unless otherwise indicated in the individual post.

Since DoSask.com produces its own events to generate revenue, full blog posts are often written about these events. No statement of disclosure is included in these posts.

EVENT LISTINGS

While every effort is made to cover most leisure and recreation events happening in Saskatoon, published events have most likely been shared within the Facebook group a minimum 1 week prior to post publishing. If you want your event featured correctly and in full, please submit it directly through the contact form on DoSask.com.

DoSask.com events are always formatted in bold to highlight their significance. Opportunities are available for more prominent features in the events listing.

COMMENTS

Post comments have been turned off due to a large amount of spam. Should they open again, DoSask.com and Amy Rederburg reserve the right to moderate comments before publishing.
