We’ve talked about it on our show that we want to sell out, and we want to make money off of doing a podcast. I know that some people are making money, and that’s a testiment to the dedication that someone has to make things happen. Well, Graeme and I have that dedication, but we just don’t have the time to send things out to potential sponsors. So this is what we need from you. Below is a letter that we will write out for you that will sound like it is from our fans. I’m sure it’s what you want to say about us and more, but it is a quick copy and paste and send thing that you can do for us.
Anyway, take the below letter and send it everywhere. If you can do it for free and send emails, feel free, or if you would be willing to pay for a stamp, that would work to. Anyway, we need to start getting paid for ITRadio, if not just to take care of bandwidth and website costs.
Here’s the letter:
To whom it may concern:
I am writing this letter to let you know about two friends of mine, Frosty and Graeme. They have done a podcast named ITRadio for the last 2.5 years, and are very dedicated to doing a show every Thursday night from 7-9pm Central time. They are in trouble though. They have put a lot in to the show and their resources are getting thin. Their domain will be up shortly and they will not be able to keep paying for their website, and therefore will not be able to do a podcast.
You may ask yourself what a podcast is. It’s merely an independent radio show that records their shows in an mp3 (music) format so that listeners, such as myself, can download their show and listen to it whenever I have time. Advertising would be easy for this format, as long as you give the control to the podcaster on how to do the advertising. You could add an ad to the beginning or the end of the show, but quite frankly I could easily skip the ad and never know who it is. If you allow the podcasters, in this case Frosty and Graeme, do what the want to advertise their product, they will persuade me more to try your product. They are quite good at advertising as I have started listening to bands that I’ve never heard of, and have wanted to try some of the products they talk about on the show.
They have wanted to be endorsed by different companies in the past, and are hoping that the word will give out, but frankly I’m just afraid that they just don’t have the time to let people know. They lead regular lives just like you and I, but they do what they can to entertain me for those 2 hours out of the day that they do their show. I really do appreciate what they’ve sacrificed to make them smile, and I wanted to repay the favor by sending this letter to you.
I advise you to check out their show. Go to http://www.tourettesradio.com and download their latest show. It’s quick and easy to do, and you don’t need to download anything but the file to your computer. Based off of the website, they can be a little crass, but it’s people like me that like that honesty that they have in their show. They are great guys and I know that they would represent your brand, or your product wonderfully.
Thank you for your time, and I hope you check out their show. I think they need all the help they can get, and I just want to do my part.
Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear about you again on their show!
