We believe in accessibility. For the BobWP eCommerce Show podcast, we were able to add a transcript in episode 22 because of the generosity of our guest from SimplyAccessible.com.
From that point on we continued with transcripts and we were able to do that through episode 113. Most of these transcriptions that opened up our content to more people, like the hearing impaired, were made possible by our podcast sponsors.
Over time, we have heard from many grateful listeners who let us know how much our efforts have meant to them. There was obviously a need and we were happy that we could meet it.
Last week, we published episode 134, the last show of 2018. When we stopped recruiting sponsors for our podcast, at first we paid for podcast transcripts out of our own pocket, but in the end, we couldn’t keep it up indefinitely. We were torn because we knew how important they were to that segment of our audience.
We Would Love to Add Transcripts Back to the Podcast in 2019
We have no plans to add podcast sponsorships again but adding back transcripts is something we would very much like to do. Just $200 covers professional transcription for four episodes. The service we have used in the past is reliable and quick, which makes it a good fit with our fast-paced schedule.
This cost does not cover the time it takes Judy to proof the transcripts and add elements for readability. This part we are happy to absorb (or I should say Judy has committed to absorbing).
This is what we are looking for. We are listing slots to sponsor 4 episodes. We would love to have them all committed by end of month, but if we get at least half of year, we will keep the option open. Otherwise we will continue with the show notes.
What will the sponsor get?
On each post, you will get recognition right before the transcript with a text link of your choice. We will also tweet out a thank-you.
Note that any show during your sponsorship may be an interview with a competing product or service. With out tight scheduling, we cannot control this. We will also ask if we can become an affiliate with you.
Let’s see what we can do. Just use the form below to easily commit to your slot or slots. You will be invoiced approximately one week prior to the sponsorship.
You have until Jan. 1, 2019 to commit to a slot.
Thanks and with our combined efforts, we can make the BobWP eCommerce Show accessible to all.
