Advertise with Hot Pod

Why take out a listing on Hot Pod Classifieds?

Your listing, product, service, and/or message will reach a sizable audience of producers, executives, investors, and journalists directly and indirectly involved in the podcast ecosystem. To put it another way: Hot Pod is read by lots of people who have stakes in podcasting.

Reach out directly for more details on the newsletter distribution size. The Tuesday newsletter average a ~40% open rate. That’s well above the average Media and Publishing newsletter open rate of ~21%.

How much does a Hot Pod Classified cost?

Each listing costs an absurdly affordable $150, with negotiable discounts if you wish buy more than one at a time.

What goes into a listing?

Every classified is limited to ~240 characters, not words, plus a link or call-to-action to send readers through. You’re free to compose the copy however you like — the more entertaining, the better! (you know, like everything else) — but it’s subject to my final review before insertion.

This is how the classifieds section looks:

At this point in time, the classifieds are only distributed through the weekly Tuesday newsletters.

By the end of fall, this will likely change.

Anything else?

With Hot Pod’s classifieds section, I have a few guiding principles: be thoughtful, be useful, and be chill. That’s about it.
