Hey there. I am a software developer with a beautiful wife and 2 wonderful children. In this time of political turmoil, I think that the passion that I bring to political issues could make me have a successful podcast. I just need your support. Other radio hosts have told me that I am really good at what I do. I would like to expand what I have done previously in the relaunch of the podcast which is happening 8/16/2017.
So thank you for looking and/or contributing.
Here are some details about the reward levels and about the funding project in general:
Why should you support Liberal Dan Radio as a listener?
Because I believe that I produce a show that is both informational and entertaining. I have had some very interesting past guests. I have spoken about very serious subjects but we have had fun analyzing the issues. I also like to put some humor into the show by taking a snarky look at the headlines for the week. I mock bigotry and intolerance in the weekly "Words of Redneck Wisdom" bit. As the show grows I will be able to produce more funny bits that go right along with the news and opinions. I will also interject some random items from time to time (like sports, gaming, and other various topics). But don't just take my word for it. The podcasts are available on iTunes for download or they can be downloaded from blogtalkradio.com. Listen to a few shows and you might just like what you hear.
Why should you buy commercial advertising or a sponsorship?
Because the show is a live show and a podcast, your commercials do not just play when the show is live. They will also play whenever anyone downloads the podcast and listens to it. There is no limit to the number of times that your commercial could be heard. Also, the show is just starting and will grow with time. Your business will have the opportunity grow with it. Finally, any "per show" or "per hour" advertising or sponsorship gained as a backing reward for this year will allow you to renew for at least next year at the same pro-rated rate (as this ad buy is for 4 months and next year is 12 months).
How do the reward levels work?
All reward levels contain only what is stated.
Some rewards say "hour" and others say "show". What is the difference?
A show can take place once per day. However, a show could contain multiple hours. Currently the show airs once a week for at least an hour.
Why do the 2nd hour and beyond sponsor levels cost much more?
It is to make sure that I would have enough money to cover the costs involved to do the show for more than the current run.
*Tell me more about how the commercials are made:
The creation of commercials requires both parties to come to an agreement on any background music (to make sure it is pod safe) and on the content (to make sure it contains suitable content for all audiences and takes the appropriate time). The commercial should also sound good. The amount of time it could take to complete the commercial will depend on all those issues. I also have final say on if the commercial is suitable to be played on air (or banner placed on the website). If you are planning to purchase commercial time, You can either have me voice the commercial or you may do it (unless the commercial is your opinion, then you must provide the voice for it). If the commercial is an editorial I reserve the right to comment on it.
Anything else I should know about podcast sponsorships or ad buys?
Vacations, holidays, sick time and technical difficulties (including weather events that prohibit me from connecting to the internet) can interfere with the operation of the show. If you are buying a set number of commercials this will not affect you. But in the event that a show is missed, for any reason, reasonable attempts will be made to reschedule the show or to increase commercial time given in future shows. But there may be weeks where the show does not air (like on Thanksgiving week). So by purchasing advertising time "per show" you understand that you only get commercials when the show would air.
