Hello,


As the publisher and owner of PINK/PINK PAGES, I would like to share with you the new venture we are working on for spring 2014. 

"Marry Me PINK" the "Ultimate Guide to Gay Weddings and Honeymoon Destinations" will be the first publication of its kind to hit the LGBT communities in the USA and Canada.  At the same time, I would like to invite you to join us as partners and become part of "Marry Me PINK."  I have selected special businesses who I believe will be a perfect choice for "Marry Me PINK."  Without any doubt in my mind our partnership would open the doors for new opportunities, exposure and revenues. 

Here are few ideas/opportunities for exposure and increase in revenues. 
  1. Affiliate program: We offer our readers the opportunity to purchase many different services directly from our website. PINK will promote your business for free with email blasts, editorial coverage and more. In return we ask for a percentage of the total sale, just as other companies do with their affiliates programs.
  2. Department stores and retailers will have the opportunity to become "The Registry" sponsors and promote their products and their stores. As a sponsors you will be able to choose as many pages as you wish.
  3. In November this year, PINK will be hosting the closing party for Reeling––The Chicago Lesbian and Gay Film festival for 350 VIP guests. PINK can include your company promo materials in our famous VIP gift bags, and showcase your company at our spot at the theatre's lobby, which will increase your visibility and exposure during the entire duration of the festival. 
  4. The PINK Gives-A-Way program is designed to create big buzz with our readers by giving away a vacation, product or music download, will position your organization as a huge supporter of the LGBT community, ending up with an increase LGBT loyalty relationship to your brands.
