How do sponsorships work?

The ads on my blog sidebar are all official sponsors of my site and pay me a flat fee per month to be that sponsor. I do not do sponsored posts unless they are brands I myself have tried. I only work with brands I personally use in my travels or know about through trusted travel colleagues.  We do partnerships that include ads, social media, giveaways, and cross promotion.
