A community sponsorship allows you to show your support for our show but unlike a donation (which also allows you to show your support), a community sponsorship gives you one (or two, depending on how you look at it) additional benefit. So, here's what you get with a community sponsorship:
- First, just like with a donation at the $33+ level, your name (accompanied by the domain of your website if you like) will be shown in a ticker running across the top in ONE of the next videos/show episodes. And just like with a donation at the $33+ level, your name/domain will be shown in every rotation of the ticker. So, this first part is identical with what you get for a donation at the $33+ level.
- Unlike with a donation at the $33+ level, with a community sponsorship you and/or your company's name and web address will be listed on our sponsors page for one month (or for as many months as you like to purchase this sponsorship for). So, getting listed on our sponsors page is a benefit that you don't get with any donation.
Note: As a community sponsor you'll be listed with a name (personal name and/or business name), a short 5-6 word description plus the URL/link to your website. Your logo will not appear in our community sponsors listing.
- Strictly speaking, this third item is not a benefit although it could be viewed as such if you compare a community sponsorship to a donation at the $33+ level. While donations to us are NOT tax deductible because we are NOT a non-profit (only donations to non-profits are tax deductible), a sponsorship such as this one is, of course, fully tax deductible just like any other advertising or marketing expense. So, upon paying your sponsorship fee, you will get a fully tax deductible invoice. That's the third "quasi-benefit" if you want to call it that.
Now, for one month community sponsorship you pay a minimum of $50.
A "minimum" because you can actually set the amount you wish to pay (like with a donation) based on how far at the top of our sponsors page you want to be listed. A person/business that pays $51 will be listed above the ones that pays $50. And the ones that pays $52 will be listed above those who pay $51 etc.
And if you pay $99 for a month, you will be listed as the top community sponsor on our sponsors page because that's the highest amount you can pay for a one month community sponsorship. In other words, for a one month community sponsorship you can choose to pay anywhere between $50 and $99 depending on how far at the top of the sponsors page you want to be listed. (If you pay $100, we'll assume that you wish to pay $50 for 2 months and along with the corresponding invoice you'll get the benefits of a 2-month community sponsorship at the $50 level).
So, on the following page you will actually have to enter the amount you wish to pay (making sure that it's at least $50).
Also, if you wish to buy a community sponsorship for more than one month, you have the option to tick the "Make This Recurring" box on the next page like shown in the following picture. But it's totally up to you whether or not you want to make it recurring. And of course, just like with any other recurring payment in PayPal, you can easily cancel it from within your PayPal account any time.
