    Native Advertising Brand Promotion

    We love recommending great things to our readers! All of our brand promotion options are defined as ‘native advertising’ — seamlessly integrated into our content. They appear as recommendations within the content and are not labeled as advertising.

    If you have other ideas or see other places in the content where you would like us to include content about your business, please don’t hesitate to let us know, and we can discuss custom options. We’re open to all ideas!

    You can email us at [email protected] or WhatsApp chat with us at +377 999 0 888 1

    This is a new offering (since Summer 2021),
    and we would love to hear your feedback!

    Below are our native advertising options:

    Promotion (Within Any Article)

    Iconic Riviera will recommend your business within any of our travel guides, ‘The Best’ guides, or itineraries.

    Have an idea for an article? Let us know! These articles can include topics like “The Best Spas in Monaco” or “The Best Places for Kids in Antibes”, etc.

    This promotion includes a short description (approximately 150 words), one wide photo or two tall photos, a map pointer, and (on itineraries only) a visual Google map. This will link to your website, but we can also make this listing link to your Business Profile (see below, sold separately) for readers to learn more, see photos, etc.

    This may require us staying at the hotel for one night, dining at your restaurant, etc. so we can write about it from experience, which you’ll need to cover the cost for.

    Example: St Paul de Vence: Travel Guide (see the treehouse hotel in the ‘Where To Stay’ section of the St Paul de Vence travel guide).

    • €750 one-time setup fee, plus €265 per month billed in three-month increments.

    Promotion (Within Any Event Guide)

    We can add a section entitled either ‘Where To Dine’, ‘Where To Drink’, ‘Where to Shop’, or ‘Where to Stay’, to event guides (for example, our guide to the Monaco Grand Prix, or a Jazz Festival). This includes one photo, a short description (about 150 words), a link to your website, and a visual Google map showing readers how to get to your business from the event.

    This may require us staying at the hotel for one night, dining at your restaurant, etc. so we can write about it from experience, which you’ll need to cover the cost for.

    Business Profile (Full Page)

    Iconic Riviera will publish an article exclusively about your hotel, store, restaurant, tour, etc. which we will write and you can edit until you’re happy with it. It will have a lot of information, including photos of your dishes, rooms, products, etc. and information about pricing, a video, etc. The listing will be in the main section for the town your business is located in.

    In the case of a store, the article could go in the ‘Spend’ section and you could promote your shop plus several products.

    For real estate agencies and villa rentals, we could put a page about your agency in the ‘Real Estate & Villas’ section.

    In the case of a hotel, restaurant or tour, this may require us staying at the hotel for two nights, or trying your tour, dining at your restaurant, etc., so we can write about it in an authentic way, which you’ll need to cover the cost for.

    Examples: Château Léoube (Pellegrin Beach, Wine & Olives), Antibes’ Absinthe Bar and The Prince’s Car Collection.

    • €1750 one-time setup fee, plus €365 per month billed yearly.

    This may require us attending one of your events so we can write about it from experience.

    Newsletter

    Our Iconic Riviera newsletter is twice monthly. We can include your post (purchased from the options above) in any upcoming newsletter(s) at a timing convenient for you.

    Why Partner With Us?

    We know that you have a lot of choice when it comes to places to advertise. Here’s why Iconic Riviera is the best choice:

    #1: Yes, there are other tourism and local events websites. But none of them come close to getting the number of readers that we get. Iconic Riviera is the #1 source for information about Monaco, Cannes, Nice, St-Tropez and each of the other towns we cover — together & individually! There is no other website you could advertise on that would give you access to a larger or more targeted readership of both locals and tourists.

    #2: If you request it, we’ll make the URL to your website be a tracking link so you can see exactly how many readers are clicking through. Unlike with other platforms, on Iconic Riviera you can track the effectiveness of your ads.

    #3: Our advice is trusted because it’s authentic, and we write about both the good and the bad. We don’t write 100% positive fluff, and our readers appreciate that.

    The Process

    For hotel, restaurant, and service promotions, the process works this way:

    1. You pay the (non-refundable) setup fee via credit card or PayPal.
    2. We discuss where you want the placement, what you want it to say, etc.
    3. If it’s a business profile about a hotel or restaurant, we will then visit your establishment to take photos and learn more about it. In the case that we do not feel that we can recommend your establishment to our readers then we will explain why and we will revisit once you’ve fixed the issues we noticed.
    4. We write the text and provide you with the photo selection. You can also provide text and details to be included. You can then edit it until you’re happy with the final result.
    5. We send you a link so you can start the subscription and the article is published.
