The Swift by Sundell podcast is funded by sponsorships - which both lets me keep the show free & available to everyone, and also provides a great opportunity for companies offering relevant products & services to connect with a highly engaged audience.
There are no traditional "ad breaks" on the show, no annoying pre-roll ads or unnatural cuts to disruptive announcements. Instead, the model is simple - sponsors get around 2 minutes of dedicated time on an episode, as a natural part of the show's content. The sponsorship messages are read by me personally, providing a much more human way to advertise than many other channels.
Current sponsors include highly respected brands in the Swift developer community, like Ray Wenderlich, Bitrise and Instabug, and if you're offering a high quality product or service that's relevant for Swift developers - then I'd love to have you on as a sponsor as well.
The show currently has over 40,000 monthly active subscribers (as of June 30th), and each week more than 20,000 unique requests are made to the show's feed. The audience is truly global, with the major markets being North America and Europe. Most listeners are either professional or aspiring software developers, making the show an ideal place to advertise developer tools, productivity services or engineering job openings.
The price for sponsoring one episode is 700 Euros (can also be paid in USD). That gives you around two minutes of dedicated time on the show, as well as a product description with links in the episode's show notes.
