Sponsorship

We have room for a very limited number of advertisers.  We are selling twelve and twelve; banners in the 216 x 76 size on our right margin.  We standardized on 216 x 76 because it will create a uniform look to the blog and allow all advertisers reasonable exposure.

 ADVERTISING MODEL

Most sites sell higher positions for more money, TGRP 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 12 POSITIONS AVAILABLE

We have 13 slots to run our banner ads in, we reserve one for our sites personal use and one which we give as a free “grant” to one company each year for supporting our show. (This years free grant is given to Instructor-List).  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 $1,500.00 (just 125 dollars a month)
  • 6 Months is only $870.00 (just 145 dollars a month)
  • 3 Months is only $600.00 (just 200 dollars a month)
To put this in prespective:
  • Average 30 second  ad on Wednesday in America can cost between $64,000 and $502,900, depending on the network
  • Billboard adds can cost between rent for $500.00 to $8,000.00 a month dependent on the location
  • Magazine adds, the primary out reach to my audience and can cost $600 to $10,000 per issue based on subscribers.

TO APPLY AS AN ADVERTISER

First let me say we do see advertising on our site as a true endorsement.  Hence we will NOT accept all advertisers, 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. I will accept advertising from primary firearms manufactures but retain the right to be completely impartial about any weapon made or feature of a system produced by a sponsor. Both the hosts and shows impartiality will not be brought into question in the evaluations of firearms. This impartiality applies to all sponsors. We are not in the advertising business at TGRP we are in the business of serving our listeners.

 To Apply as an Advertiser…

2.  Sponsorship on this show will be a personal endorsement by the host of your product or service. The host will do his best to test your company and ensure that TGRP listeners are offered the best services and products.

3. Once you are accepted (it should not take more then 3-4 days) I will notify you and let you know where to send payments to via PayPal or if you prefer you may pay by check but it will take longer to get your ad running.
