Introducing: Talking Points Podcast Sponsorships

|

Four years ago, my friend Kevin Hunt (General Mills) and I had a crazy idea: Why don’t we start a podcast focused on social media and communications?

Actually, not so crazy, right? The market is full of podcasts covering these topics. BUT, there are very few (any?) based in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. And, there are very few (again, any?) hosted by someone on the big company side (Kevin at General Mills) and someone on the solo consultant side (me!).

Four years later, we just recorded our 100th episode! We’ve interviewed leaders from Walmart, Dell, Sleep Number and US Bank, among others, over the years. We’ve taken road trips to local universities and companies to interview communications professionals. And, most importantly, along the way, we’ve had a lot of fun doing it.

But, after four years of producing the show, we thought it was high time to act like a grown-up podcast. So, starting today, we’re offering sponsorship opportunities on the Talking Points Podcast. In fact, we already have our first sponsor (tune in to the January show for the big reveal!).

To be clear, we’re not expecting to make millions of dollars in sponsor income. Dax Shepherd we are not. But, as anyone who hosts a podcast will tell you, there are expenses. We’re just looking to cover those expenses and maybe make enough money to pay for the instances when we take the show on the road each year.

So, if you’re interested in sponsoring the show, send me a note at arik@arikhanson.com. We’re offering three sponsor levels–see below. All three offer you and your company an opportunity to have at least one guest on the show, so it’s not all about “reads”!
