ADVERTISE

A NOT SO UNIQUE ADVERTISING MODEL

Most sites sell higher positions for more money, ToDoListHome.com is charging a flat fee (with a discount for long term buyers) and ad positions are rotated every week.  New advertisers start at the bottom of the stack and each week the top position is rotated to the bottom to allow all advertisers equal time at various positions on the site for one low rate.

ONLY 10 POSITIONS AVAILABLE

We have ten (10) 125px x 125px advertising slots available in the right sidebar of ToDoListHome.coml. These ads appear on every page within our ToDoListHome.com. There is one advertising block that is reserved for our internal promotions.

We also have one which we give as a free “grant” to one company each year for supporting our show. 2012’s free grant is not yet decided.  We take no preferential treatment in the rotation with our own slots, we rotate from top to bottom just like all of our advertisers.

This approach give you high exposure to a laser targeted audience.  Pricing is as follows…

  • 1 Full Year (12 months) is only $2,400.00 (just 200 dollars a month)
  • 6 Months is only $1,380.00 (just 230 dollars a month)
  • 3 Months is only $900.00 (just 300 dollars a month)

TO APPLY AS AN ADVERTISER

First we view advertising on our site as a true endorsement.  Hence we will NOT accept all advertisers (THIS IS NOT A MARKETING PLOY WE DO AND WILL CONTINUE TO TURN DOWN SPONSORS THAT DON’T MEASURE UP), to be approved you must follow the instructions outlined below.  We will not accept any advertiser unless we are willing to vouch for your company and your product.  We are not in the advertising business at ToDoListHome.com we are in the business of serving our viewers and listeners.

To Apply as an Advertiser:

  1. Email the page you want your banner to link to and a copy of the banner you plan to use (if you have one) to tonyteolis@todolisthome.com  Also include the term you want to initially sign up for (1 year, 6 months, or 3 months).
  2. Our staff and listeners will be asked to review and vote on acceptance of you as a new advertiser.  If they vote yes you are in, if they vote no you’re out.
  3. Once you are accepted (it should not take more then 3-4 days) you will be notified and informed of where to send payments via PayPal or if you prefer you may pay by check but it will take longer to get your ad running.
  4. Within 24 hours of receipt of your funds and your ad banner we will begin running your ads for the agreed upon term.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ToDoListHome ADVERTISING

Question – How many people a day visit ToDoListHome.com on Average

Answer – The blog receives about __________ unique visitors a day and about _____________ page views each day as well.  These are not “claimed numbers” you can view these statistics for yourself on our SITEMETER.  These are not the ever nebulous “hits”, they are individual unique visitors and total page views.  You should also consider locking in long term as our traffic has been growing at an exponential rate since our launch.

Question – How much traffic will you send me?

Answer – There is no way we can guarantee any traffic volume because your product, ad creative and your position in the rotation will have a large effect on this.  Additionally you should consider not just direct traffic but the branding effect of being seen on our site on a daily basis and mentions YOU WILL GET on the podcasts and videos.

Question – I don’t have a 125 x 125 banner, can you make one for me?

Answer – In most instances yes for a small fee of $US50.  This assumes you have some source graphics we can use and you know what you want it to say.

Question – How many people a day listen to the podcasts?

Answer – On average the podcast is downloaded about ________________  times a day by regular listeners via our feed. There are many additional listeners that come directly to the site and do not use the feed and thus can’t be accurately counted.  Our best estimates by monitoring Google Analytics is our average daily downloads amount to about _____________ people a day as of ____________.

Question – What do you mean I “will get mentions on the show”?

Answer – Simply put we will each day mention the “Sponsors on our Website” and do a brief featured pair of advertisers of the day.  These will go in a simple daily rotation and the mention will simply be, “and our featured advertiser of the day is XYZ Company” followed by some commentary from the host about why he recommends the sponsor.  We do “two sponsors of the day” to ensure everyone gets a mention at least once a week.  We do NOT do canned prerecorded advertising. This comes from the heart.
