How Are you Leveraging Sponsored categories On Your Discourse Community?

We have at least two parties that wish to sponsor categories on our forums. Wonder if anyone has done similar, and what did you offer.

For us I’m thinking:

  • Facebook post\social posts
  • Global Announcement\banner topic for a period of time
  • Rename category as “Category … w/” or "Category Presented by sponsor)
  • Pinned post In the Category

Wondering what the people smarter than me are doing :smiley:


We are having an affiliate link related to what our forum is about… and it converts kinda decent so far. :smiley:

I’m just focusing on something which is FREE and which is relevant to what we discuss in the community. That’s all. I’m badly waiting for a plugin for showing custom banner ads inside the threads.
