Interested in being an AlbersAngle.com sponsor or advertising with us? Email jmalbers@indiana.edu.

Hello all! We’ve appreciated all the support we have gotten on the site so far. The metrics have been terrific, and we appreciate all of your support. We hope you will continue to read, give us feedback, and share this site and its content with your friends. We really look forward to seeing what AlbersAngle.com can grow into.

We are currently accepting offers for sponsorships and advertising on our site and podcast, and have numerous local Bloomington businesses interested. If you have a business, company, etc. that would like to sponsor our site in some capacity or run advertisements on the site and podcast, please let us know. There are a number of different options for you to consider, and I have listed those below.

If you do decide to sponsor or advertise with us, you will be rewarded for getting in so early with a rate lower than what our numbers suggest we should charge. So I highly recommend getting in early if you are interested.


WHAT ALL WILL IT INVOLVE FOR YOU:

**If you wanted to, you could send us a video advertisement that could be posted on the site. That’s just an idea, an option, not something you’d have to do.

**At least two ad readings on each episode of our podcast. You can write whatever you want in the script.

**Open and regular communication with me about what you want promoted and when — you’ll have 24/7 access to me to get that done.

 WHAT WILL IT COST?

**Negotiable, depending on how much you want. I’ve mentioned to all interested parties that I would give them a good deal if you have the belief in our concept and are willing to invest early with us. I believe in supporting local businesses, so I like to reach out to as many of those as possible to begin with.

**I would like to come to terms to at least a 3-month agreement at a set monthly rate, which means you wouldn’t have to pay more when we naturally increase our page visits and following over the course of time. So, with all that being said, here are the different sponsorship options you would have.


1. Presenting Sponsor of the Podcast

If you want to sponsor only the podcast, the best way would be to sign on as the presenting sponsor. That would get your logo and/or name on the podcast artwork, as well as an ad read early in the show. This would obviously cost more than the other podcast sponsorships, but I wanted to present it as an option.

2. Non-Presenting Sponsor of the Podcast

You could have ads read at the beginning and in the middle of every podcast, again, promoting anything you have upcoming, etc. Your logo and name would not appear on the podcast artwork, but you would get ad reads or a sponsored segment in the show.

3. Presenting Sponsor of the Podcast and a Sponsor of AlbersAngle.com

Same deal as option 1, but as a sponsor of AlbersAngle.com, we would put your logo and name on the homepage of the website, and embed images and ads within certain articles. We would also promote you via social media. AlbersAngle is already an established brand (589K hits last month), but packaging a website sponsorship with a podcast sponsorship would earn your something of a discount.


4. Non-Presenting Sponsor of the Podcast and a Sponsor of AlbersAngle.com

Same deal as option 2, but as a sponsor of AlbersAngle.com, we would put your logo and name on the homepage of the website, and embed images and ads within certain articles. We would also promote you via social media. AlbersAngle is already an established brand (589K hits last month), but packaging a website sponsorship with a podcast sponsorship would earn your something of a discount.

5. Presenting Sponsor of Facebook Live Show

Max Bielfeldt and I plan to continue to do Facebook Live shows regarding IU hoops throughout the season, and you could be the presenting sponsor of the show. For example, it would be ‘The Ethos Apartments Postgame Show”.

Let me know if this is something you would like to do, and if so, what your preference would be. Throw out a number you’d like to or would be willing to spend on a marketing effort like this, and I’ll give you an idea what that would get you. Feel free to take a look at the site as well, if you’d like. We have already signed a deal with The Tap to be our presenting sponsor and are close to deals with several other local companies, but I hope we can work something out because I would really like to do business with you.

Interested? Shoot me an email at jmalbers@indiana.edu.
