1. We love partnering with brands/products we actually use and like. If we believe in your brand/product we can be flexible to find an agreement that works for us.
2. Our packages depend on the brand/timing.
Our current rate is $125/episode.
We do offer discounts for volume/ongoing partnership
(6 episodes at $650 / 12 episodes at $1000)
3. We average about 7,500 listens per month — episodes average between 2,000 and 4,000 downloads/listens within 30 days.
That rate goes up considerably as the year goes on.
4. We do a custom read during the intro — usually about a minute or two. We like to have fun with it and give an authentic endorsement/thanks.
We have a logo placement + thanks on the site (which gets solid traffic, as it's one of Squarespace's featured customer site). Sometimes we'll have an offer code for listeners, '10000HOURS' depending on the brand.
We primarily use Twitter (@THE10KHRS) to communicate with our audience and are happy to give shouts out to our sponsors.
We also take our guests/ their audience into consideration and try to, in a way that makes sense for the partnership, pair those with brands and products.
5. Our audience mainly consists of creatives — they are from a range of fields, but many are writers, designers, developers, photographers, filmmakers and advertising, startups/technology, and other creative industries. You can expect the majority of our audience to be in their 20s, though we have some younger listeners, and certainly a lot of listeners in their 30s, 40s, and beyond.
6. Sponsors (past/current) include — Squarespace, Adobe, Harvest, Simplecast, Death to Stock, Supr Good Co, Sanebox, TextExpander, UltraHuman, The Vector Lab, Animoto
