About The WP eCommerce Show
It all started as a WooCommerce podcast in March 2016. Now we cover everything WordPress and eCommerce.
Our goal is to bring our listeners all aspects of eCommerce tools that you can use and are powered by WordPress. This will include tips and insights on marketing, social and other important aspects of running your store. We will talk with industry experts, shop owners, and yes, an occasional designer and developer. We don’t want to make it all about tech, but scattered between things we will touch on plugins, themes, security and hosting. It’s all about empowering you to make better decisions and get more sales from your eCommerce site.
Podcast series run on Mondays and regular podcast episodes run on Wednesdays. (excluding US holidays)
And unlike a lot of podcasts, we have only one sponsor per show.
The WP eCommerce Show is also available on iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud and Google Play.
About the Sponsorships
We have two different shows, our Wednesday podcast and our Monday podcast series.
Sponsorship spots are $1,300/month (4 episodes). The podcast is published and archived on here on BobWP.com. Three of the shows will be guests that we have chosen and for the fourth one, you have the option of being on the show or choosing someone from your company to be on it. Subject area will be decided between us.
- Sole sponsorship which means it’s all about your product or service.
- Three shoutouts: one at the beginning of the show (30 second max), a mid-roll show shoutout (60 second max) and a final thank-you at the end of the show. (Note, if you choose to be on one of the shows, it will be formatted a bit differently).
- Permanent banner/links within the content on the episode page.
- Permanent logo on top of sidebar with short descriptor on episode page with link.
- Listed as sponsor on featured image banner.
- Exposure to over 2,600 subscribers plus thousands more on social.
- Thank-you’s published via Twitter, Facebook, Linked, and Google+ on the BobWP and The WP eCommerce Show social accounts.
- The option to be a guest on one of the shows.
You also get:
The podcast will be reposted (approx. 1-2 weeks after original post) as an article on LinkedIn including a thank you link as the sponsor.
You will be included in a list on List.ly for of our podcast episodes with a link.
Monday Podcast Series
This series is all about you and your expertise.
How it works for you.
We will take some time to plan an outline of your four shows. Of course, the topic will be based on your expertise. We want to avoid making the shows a big sales pitch, but instead bring in your knowledge in a specific area of eCommerce while giving you exposure to thousands of WordPress users.
Also, note in this show we will have the opening sponsor roll, but not the middle one. On the first show of the series, the guest will also introduce themselves as well as your product or service. Of course, we encourage you to creatively sprinkle referrals to your site throughout the series.
You have the option to:
- Bring in someone new from your company for the interview of each episode.
- Have a single representative be the guest for the series.
- Have someone from your company co-host with me and help choose the guests.
- Help select the guests if you want to.
Or you can have a mix of all four.
This sponsorship is very flexible. We want to be able to get creative with you and if that means bringing in clients as guests for interviews, let’s talk about that as well.
About the Sponsorship Series
Sponsorship series are $2,000 for four shows. The series is published and archived on here on BobWP.com.
You get everything included in our Wednesday show plus:
- Sole sponsorship, host and guest spots for your company only.
- Option to help choose the guest interviews.
- A final (and fifth) post summation of all four shows on a Friday, with a single mp3 file of all four shows as well as a single pdf of all show transcripts.
Our Podcast is Accessible
For each show, we are now providing a full transcript to make sure that everyone can enjoy The WP eCommerce Show. Your sponsorship, as noted above, includes you as the sponsor of the show with links and banner. The full transcript is published on the post, plus readers get the the option of downloading a PDF. All transcripts are produced through a professional transcript service.
The first episode of the podcast aired on March 10, 2016. We have a loyal readership and a wide-touching range of social connections that we stay in touch with constantly. With our reach you are exposed to hundreds of thousands of WordPress users each year.
Downloads: Monthly downloads at this point vary from 2,500 – 3,000. Because we offer transcripts, this can offset download statistics. Although many podcast choose to not offer transcripts for this reason, we feel it is important to make our show accessible and user-friendly. We don’t share listener numbers because research shows that numbers of listeners to any podcast are SWAG.
And It Just Keeps on Giving
Not only will you get the immediate exposure on publication, but it will exist forever in our archives on here on BobWP . I also am a firm believer is continuing to share archived content on social. Lastly, I tend to remember good products and services, which I continue to share with people who ask for recommendations and when chatting WordPress with others. So it’s not all about now, it’s the future as well.
Who has sponsored our show?
Do We Have Single Show Sponsorships
We sometimes have an available spot for a single show, but they are limited. We also feel you will get better brand recognition through repetition. If you want to inquire about a single show, please contact us.
Are You a Good Fit?
The only requirement of our sponsors is that you are not a reseller of WordPress eCommerce themes, plugins or extensions from another vendor, agency, or developer.
Simply fill out this form and you will be taken to a page to choose your sponsored month. No money will be collected at this point and we will let you know if you are a good fit for our show and other details, including payment will be worked out then.
If you have any other questions before you submit, please contact us here.
