Why sponsor the network?

The Alberta Podcast Network connects the listeners of Alberta-made podcasts to Alberta-based businesses and organizations. The smart, creative, engaging podcasters in our network provide an excellent opportunity for locally focused organizations to reach local customers, and for companies based here to reach customers around the world in an intimate way.

What sponsors get

Sponsors of the Alberta Podcast Network receive the following:

  • 10 ad reads per month on the most relevant podcasts in the network, by geography, subject matter and/or listenership.

    • These are generally host reads, not pre-recorded messages — the network supplies the podcaster with the information and the call to action, and the podcaster shapes the message for his or her audience;

    • These ads can be for the sponsor, for the sponsor’s podcast, for the sponsor’s clients, or a mix.

    • You can hear some examples here:

  • Promotion on the network’s social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram).

  • Promotion in the network’s newsletter and on the network’s blog.

  • Where possible, integration into live events (some fan-focused, others workshop-oriented).

  • Regular reporting on the metrics that matter to you.

If the sponsor has a podcast of its own, we list it among the affiliated podcasts on our website, and promote it on our channels (website, social media, newsletter, CKUA app). If the sponsor doesn't have a podcast but wants to start one, we'd love to help make that happen.

This package starts at $500 per month, plus GST.

We prefer a one-year commitment, but are willing to be flexible, keeping in mind the need to give the campaign its best chance to succeed.

If you become a sponsor, you’ll be joining these fine organizations.
