Sponsor thoughts and some info

As you’ve noticed if you’ve listed to Episode 78 with Wendy, Long Riders Radio has it’s very first sponsor. I wanted to provide a bit more information to you about my thinking on this matter.

Your trust in me is the single most important thing to the success of this show. Without that, it’s just some idiot recording a call in his basement. I take this very seriously.

With that in mind, I had a few non-negotiable items when it came to doing ads on the show:

  1. There had to be an ad-free version of the show available for Patreon supporters. Quite frankly, these 18 people have made it possible for the remaining 800+ to enjoy the show. Without those 18 people, this show would not happen.

  2. The product being advertised must be something that people who listen to the show would find useful and provide them with some benefit.

  3. The ads themselves needed to flow with the show and not be disrupting or annoying.

With DiscountRamps.com, I believe we’ve accomplished all three goals. If you disagree, please let me know your thoughts. If you really are adverse to hearing the ads, please consider supporting the show through Patreon. For $1/show, you’ll get access to the ad-free version of the show. (Actually, consider supporting the show through Patreon anyway…)

I also think it’s important for me to be completely upfront and transparent about how the show is compensated for these ads. There’s two ways that the show is compensated:

  • There’s a one time ad insert fee for ads read on the show. This is a flat amount.

  • For each sale using my coupon code, I get an affiliate fee based on the size of the sale.

I’m not going to go into the specifics amounts, however this link provides a pretty good explanation on the market rates for podcast advertising. Let’s just say I’m not going to be getting rich on this podcast by any stretch of the imagination.

My hope is that you’ll find something at DiscountRamps.com that you can’t live without, and can save some money using the coupon code in the process. At the same time, you’re helping to support the show by 1) the affiliate fee and 2) showing the advertiser that it’s worth while to continue to advertise on the show.

Thanks again for your trust-
Justin


With all that in mind:
