"I currently work at [a british insurance company] in the marketing team, and I am constantly looking at ways to divert traffic through to our websites. I was wondering if you would be willing to have a text link to one of our sites from your blog page on the side menu. This would not require any images or banners, and would be just text. Please let me know if this would be possible, as we would be willing to pay $30 for this.
