Sponsor Unf*cking The Republic
UNFTR is supported by our members and those who purchase our exclusive coffee blends made in partnership with the Poospatuck Reservation in New York.
If you are interested in sponsoring the brand, please review the notes below and submit the form. A member of our team will review and respond accordingly. Thank you!
UNFTR sponsorships are offered on a monthly basis. There are only two sponsor blocks available per month. Monthly rates are determined in advance and fluctuate throughout the year but sponsors may lock in long-term contracts to secure their rates. Sponsors receive the following:
Sponsor section in the weekly newsletter to subscribers and twice-weekly to members. The sponsor block may include the following:
- Website Link
- Blurb (max: 100 words)
Podcast episode formats include longform episodes, interviews, Show Notes and short form episodes. The content formats vary depending upon the editorial calendar but UNFTR guarantees placement on a minimum of 8 unique episodes in the monthly run. Sponsors are “teased” during the introduction of each episode and sponsor approved copy is “host read” as a mid-roll advertisement with a minimum run time of 90 seconds.
Each ad is a static placement in the show, as we do not accept dynamic placements in order to protect the digital privacy of our listeners.* Ads are host read and copy must be furnished and accepted by both the host and the client prior to running.
All ad copy must be furnished at least one week prior to the contracted month. Sponsors may choose to revise ad copy or furnish new copy on a weekly basis provided it is supplied and approved a week prior to the scheduled release date. Because placements are static, we encourage sponsors to use “evergreen” promotional codes where applicable.
All placements are final.
UNFTR produces video complements to the podcast and original features on YouTube. Sponsors will be “teased” in the introduction to a minimum of four monthly videos and receive a full mid-roll with the same approved copy and frequency as the podcast advertisement. Links to the sponsor will be included in the YouTube description notes.
Sponsors will receive prime placement on the homepage of UNFTR.com for the duration of the contract agreement. Dimensions are as follows:
- Dimensions: 728 pixels wide by 90 pixels tall (728x90).
- Image Formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF (animated GIFs are acceptable).
- Rich Media: HTML5 (with backup image or static GIF), GIF, PNG, JPEG, or a combination of these.
- File Size: keep the file size under 150 KB to ensure faster loading times. If you’re creating an animated banner, adhere to animation length limits (typically 15 seconds or less) and loop limits (often set to 3 loops).
Should sponsors require assistance, UNFTR can execute the creative so long as we have sufficient time to draft the placement and receive approval from the sponsor.
*Dynamic ad placement is a concerning trend that has potentially negative implications for user privacy. This is a developing issue that we’re monitoring. As of now, we’re not comfortable with dynamic insertions and will continue with static placements, which provide enhanced value for our advertising partners.
Because the UNFTR audience grows every month, our sponsor block pricing is dynamic. Our sponsorship representative will contact interested parties with monthly avails and rates by request only.
Each month of a schedule must be paid in full one week prior to the first scheduled ad and paid by corporate check, ACH or PayPal.
Advertisers will be furnished with an insertion order agreement that must be executed prior to the schedule and payment. Please note that all rates are NET.
Please note we do not entertain any direct response campaigns or advertisements from the following industries:
- Oil & Gas
- Animal Testing
