Meta MGoBlog Advertiser Survey thing

Submitted by Seth on August 17th, 2016 at 3:28 PM

Without searching, reading the other comments, or whatever, name as many MGoBlog advertisers as you can. Whatever you consider an MGoBlog advertiser.

Not trying to prove a point--trying to learn something.

HomeSure Lending

Moe's Sports Shop/Underground Printing

The dude with the kids in his commercial on the podcasts

(I use an ad blocker so if they're not advertising in the podcast, I probably am unaware of them.)

Residence Inn Ann Arbor, Ann Arbor Elder Law, Homesure Lending, Underground Printing, Moe's, UM Alumni Association. Most of what I remember is from the podcast I s'pose.


August 17th, 2016 at 3:33 PM ^

Honestly, don't think I could until I read the other posts. Of those, Homesure seemed the 'oh yea, that one' with UGP being less so.

Scott the mortgage guy (or is it Matt? I'd have to go look at the most recent UFR).  Maybe Moes, though I can't recall seeing anything on the site, just the podcasts, MDen gets a fair bit of press on the forums, but that might be user driven.  The rotating advertisement on the left is currently for Dawn dish soap (go figure).


August 17th, 2016 at 3:40 PM ^

HomeSure Lending, Moe's, Residence Inn, Legal Zoom, Amazon,TrackR, Discover, and SquareSpace.

And today... Younkers, Progressive, Kroger, and Bed Bath & Beyond

Homesure lending. HTTV. Uh, various personalized banner ads. This thread reminded me of easy-to-think of relationships with UGP and Moe's--my memory of Moe's sponsorship of the radio hour is still fresh.

I'm a poor subject, since I visit Ann Arbor maybe once a year for two days at a time.

Also remember the sponsorships of the "party house" or whatever it was across Main from the Stadium. Couldn't name it right now but I would know where to look for it.

IME the highest quality advertising has been posts with a brief sponsor blurb, especially if recurring. For example, I miss Brian's regular picture pages posts (even if they do overlap a bit with neck sharpies) and I would love it if a sponsor paid something to bring them back. You could also sponsor the preview and Monday columns, which are of course must-reads.

I feel kinda bad, since sponsorship is an important source of Mgoblog revenue and I am attached to the site, but I just don't live close enough to make regular use of the sponsors.

But if I lived in the area and I was looking to refi my house (might need to do that in a few years, as it happens) I would probably look Matt up first.

UGP / Moes, Homesure Lending, Marriot Hotel, DraftKings, Ann Arbor ElderLaw, Tons of google ads on the site, but those are cookie specific I think. 


August 17th, 2016 at 3:43 PM ^

Listened to all of last season's podcasts, so

  • Homesure Lending
  • Alumni Association
  • Ann Arbor Elder Law
  • Residence Inn Marriott Downtown

The Fugitive

There's a chick to the left with big cans advertising zany t shirts.

Also Asians.

I swear to feck, I've never searched for those things. Victoria's Secret, yes. An Asian mistress, no.

Underground Printing

Homesure Lending or Mortgage



Then there is the ad on the left that changes all the time with several different T-shirt sites, Chinese women, Russian women, hardware and woodworking sites, hotels (Marriott I think), cruises (I am not sure which ones though) etc, etc.
