I recently started working with a company that offers a marketplace for businesses to meet sponsors. Unlike sponsored content or ads, the sponsors get to be promoted right alongside whatever you're promoting. For instance, you could have a sponsor for your whole site, where you'd pop their logo on it and mention it, or you could have someone just sponsor your blogs section, or a podcast, or an ebook, or whatever. You set the terms with your sponsor, including the length of time you want to have the arrangement going for and the amount of money you require.
It's a new company and they're looking for their initial crop of sponsors and content-producers, so they're hoping to find people with polished-looking, established sites to begin with. I don't want to link them just yet for this reason, but if you're looking for a way to monetize because of the price increases, please send me a message and I will give you the site name, as well as the owner's contact info.
