Shop Online, Help The Ballpark Guide

Do you shop on Amazon? If so, your shopping can help send me on more baseball road trips to provide you with comprehensive fan guides to the parks you plan to visit, entertaining blog posts and other adventures along the way. And best of all, your support won’t cost you an extra cent.

I’ve recently partnered up with Amazon as a method of generating revenue for my site, and I’m excited to tell you about it.

The premise is simple: Visit The Ballpark Guide’s “Support Us” page, click on the Amazon link for your country and do your shopping. When you pay for your order, Amazon takes a small percentage of that total and sends it my way, which I’ll use for more baseball road trips this summer, including some that require me to fly. The prices you pay by clicking through my link are the same you’d pay if you just typed Amazon’s URL into your browser, so there’s no added expense for you.

Here’s what the Amazon portion of the page looks like; as you can see, it’s pretty straightforward:

Here’s another way you can help:

If you buy your favorite team’s gear on MLB Shop, perhaps in anticipation of your own baseball road trip, your shopping can also help me out. As with Amazon, I’ve joined forces with the MLB Shop and every time you make a purchase, I get a small percentage. And like Amazon, it doesn’t cost you an extra penny. Here’s a screenshot:

I’ve noted it on the page in question, but I want to reiterate how much your support means to me. To show my appreciation, I’ll give you some public recognition on my Twitter account or blog. All you have to do is get in touch with me after you complete your purchase, let me know that you used my site and I’ll do the rest.

Finally, I’d love if you could bookmark my “Support Us” page and start your online shopping there. I’m asking you to bookmark my page, rather than the Amazon/MLB Shop page to which you’re directed after clicking the link, because the site’s cookies eventually expire and Amazon/MLB Shop won’t be able to connect your purchase to me.

Any questions? Give me a shout. As a bonus, I’ll give a Twitter follow to the first person who makes an Amazon or MLB Shop purchase through my site!

As always, thank you for your support. This summer’s going to have some awesome trips and I can’t wait to share them with you.

I’m so sorry, I just literally spent 200 dollars on mlb shop yesterday. Is there a way that they can look up my account number and send you the credit?

Ah, well thanks for letting me know, at least! I doubt there’s a way they can do that, but hope you’ll keep me in mind for future shopping.
Thanks!

Many thanks. I really appreciate it. Let me know when you buy something so I know it’s you and can send you a thank you.
Thanks!
Malcolm
