SPECIAL PLATINUM SPONSORSHIP - CONTENT EPISODES
View a sample content episode:
When going this route, the author sponsors the podcast in exchange for creating content about a relevant topic, such as any historical topic related to their novel. In essence, the entire 25-30 minute episode will be about YOUR book and the historical background of the book. Just like a native ad, sponsored content will mention the product or brand directly, and the host of the podcast will mention which author and novel has sponsored that specific episode. The value of sponsored content is that it can help to boost brand recognition.
For purchase of a sponsored content ad, you will be featured in the Historical Times magazine, as well, under the "PLATINUM SPONSORS" with free banner advertising.
The prices below are per episode.
Custom 30-minute episode themed around your book, with Tiktok and Youtube inclusion, as well - $500 ; private Zoom meeting to set up content episode between host and author, plus consultation on content for the episode. Author may provide author pic, bio, and any other relevant copyright free images to include in the Youtube version of the episode which will air at the same time as the podcast airing date.
This is great for any author who has a new release or special promotion coming up. Please schedule at least a month in advance of your release or promotion.
