We are opening up the Podcast to a few select advertisers.
We are now making room for a limited number of advertisers. We are selling three and only three spots. This will include a banner on the side of the site of 300 x 200. and a podcast mention each week during the show.
We are charging a flat fee (with a discount for long term buyers).
ONLY 3 POSITIONS AVAILABLE
We have 6 slots to run our banner ads in, we reserve two for our sites personal use and one which we give as a free “grant” to one company each year for supporting our show. We take no preferential treatment in the rotation with our own slots.
TO APPLY AS AN ADVERTISER
First let me say we do see advertising on our site as a true endorsement. Hence we will NOT accept all advertisers (THIS IS NOT A MARKETING PLOY WE DO AND WILL CONTINUE TO TURN DOWN SPONSORS THAT DON’T MEASURE UP), to be approved you must follow the instructions outlined below. We will not accept any advertiser unless we are willing to vouch for your company and your product. We are not in the advertising business at we are in the business of serving our listeners.
To Apply as an Advertiser…
1. Email the page you want your banner to link to and a copy of the banner you plan to use (if you have one) to firstname.lastname@example.org Also include the term you want to initially sign up for.
2. We (Nick & Don) will research and look at the product/service to see if we would use and/or endorse it. If we BOTH agree we will accept the advertiser.
3. Once you are accepted (it should not take more then 3-4 days) We will notify you and let you know where to send payments to via PayPal or if you prefer you may pay by check but it will take longer to get your ad running.
4. With in 24 hours of receipt of your funds and your ad banner we will begin running your ads for the agreed upon term.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT TSP ADVERTISING
Question – I don’t have a banner, can you make one for me?
Answer – in most instances yes for a small fee of 100 dollars. This assumes you have some source graphics we can use and you know what you want it to say, etc.
Question – How much traffic will you send me?
Answer – There is no way we can guarantee any traffic volume. Additionally you should consider not just direct traffic but the branding effect of being seen on our site on a daily basis and mentions YOU WILL GET on the podcast.
Question – How many people a week listen to the Podcast?
Answer – The podcast and the site reach about 15,000 listeners a month as of 10/2014
Question – What do you mean I “will get mentions on the show”?
Answer – Simply put each podcast (week) we will mention the “Sponsors” and do a brief mention of our sponsor and your product, or we can run a 30 second ad.. sometimes both. We can also have a professional “spot” created if you provide a script and $150. (30 seconds, the same company that did our intro.)
