The Phones Show (for potential sponsors)

This is an established video and audio podcast production, providing a fortnightly ten or twelve minute video programme with high production standards and a weekly, slightly less formal, 1 hour audio podcast.

The aim for both productions is to inform and entertain, taking the subject of mobile phones and mobile computing to the next stage beyond traditional TV coverage (e.g. The Gadget Show, Click!), while keeping the language accessible to the enthusiastic casual phone buyers and users.

Coverage includes (mainly) Symbian, Android, Windows Phone, RIM and iOS-powered smartphones and the software that runs on them. Special features (e.g. Security) are introduced as common to all mobile phone platforms, so there's usually plenty for everyone.

Sponsorship

Although not every programme is sponsored by a company in the phone ecosystem (most programmes are kept going purely through user donations), I do need regular sponsors, entities willing to pick up the sponsorship tab for one or more programmes.

What a sponsor gets

  • Up to 15 seconds of video/sideshow advertising at the start of the relevant programme OR a direct piece of show content, usually an interview or demo, up to four minutes, much less obviously an advert and with my editorial hands-on. Either way, you'll be putting your company's message or latest product directly in front of many tens of thousands of pairs of early adopter/enthusiast eyes!
  • A say in (or veto over) what other content is scheduled for inclusion
  • On-screen personal or text thanks for helping fund The Phones Show
  • Relevant hyperlinks from the programme download page, if desired

The above sponsor suggestions are completely flexible. I'm open to creative ideas for integrating a sponsor's products into the flow of Phones Show subject matter. For official sponsorship enquiries, please email me at the address below.
