- The only form of advertisement on Weekly Download is via the a sponsorship for the week. This includes the following: (1) A linked item to your web page posted on our blog (and syndicated on our Twitter feed, Facebook wall and RSS feed); (2) A 200 px wide deck image on the right hand side of every page on the website for the duration of the sponsored week; (3) A 1:00 minute summary of your product on the podcast for that week.
- If a sponsorship is not renewed by the end of the week, the image will be removed. However, your linked item will remain on the page and the podcast will remain unaltered.
- Complete care and attention is given to every sponsor, and special requests or recommendations will be included upon request. For example, scripted advertisements are completely acceptable, should you wish to take that route. We recommend “free-form” advertisement, as that has results and doesn’t turn off listeners.
