Sponsorship Opportunities on rolling START!
The sole purpose of the
sponsorship banners on both the website and email newsletter - if successful - is to raise
funds to cover the cash costs of running the website. In particular this is to enable the
site to be run on commercial webspace without the annoying pop-ups! It also covers the
costs of the newsletter mail-outs. In the event of any surplus then this will be
used to sponsor aspects of the short oval racing in the UK in the name of "rolling
START! stock car racing on the web".
This is based on a
non-animated banner located at the top of the page (as illustrated above) hyperlinked to
your url with average impressions per week (on the basis of pageviews as counted by
Addfreestats Jan to May 2004). Only one sponsorship banner will be placed in this
location on any one page at a time, giving your prescence exclusivity.
Sponsorship of other pages such as the DOOMED Racing Hearses or racing Rolls Royces Pages available on request.
The rS! Newsletter is sent to
c1100 different subscribers (@ May 2004). Sponsorship of one Newsletter costs just £15.00
(text only) and £25 (html). You can see a sample newsletter by clicking here. For the purposes of sponsorship a newsletter is
defined as a mailout to the rolling START! mail-list containing as a bare minimum
information about a new site update. The newsletter can be sent in an html format
to all those who have browsers capable of receiving this format. A plain text
newsletter containing similar information would be sent to those subscribers who cannot
receive the html format.
As a comparison Doubleclick
advertise rates of £25 for 1000 automotive impressions, £45 for 1000 pop-ups and £40 to
£60 for 1000 mail impressions. As this text is written most of the rolling START! website
is already sponsored through a combination of pop-up and banner advertising which for the
most part is irrelevant and annoying to the people visiting the site.
