This holiday season, Anchor is partnering with the Ad Council to provide free ads for three charitable causes. Use the power of your voice to spread awareness for the cause of your choice by recording an ad that will play on your podcast. For more information, check out our FAQs below.
How do the holiday sponsorship campaigns work?
The holiday campaigns are similar to our normal campaigns. Podcasters will be paired with three different charity campaigns. You'll be notified in your Anchor account and see scripts for these three campaigns to choose which campaign you want to include in your episodes.
Where can I access these campaigns?
You will find these campaigns in your Money tab on your Anchor mobile app and on the web.
How much will I earn from these campaigns?
Since these campaigns are for charity, they will have a $0 CPM meaning our podcasters will be reading these ads for free and these ads will get free impressions.
I live outside of the US, will I be paired with a holiday campaign?
We know everyone loves to give back and while we wish that every creator could be paired with a holiday campaign, only US creators will able to record a holiday campaign ad. However, you can still participate in this initiative anywhere in the world by contacting your favorite charities in your area.
I was paired with a holiday campaign ad. Do I have to record an ad?
Our holiday ad campaigns are optional. If you do not want to record an ad you don't have to. The choice is completely yours!
Can I read for more than one holiday campaign?
Absolutely! Just be sure to include the correct amount of sponsorship segment slots in your episodes.
Will my regular paid ad(s) still play if I record a holiday campaign ad?
They sure will! Your regular ad(s) will still play. Just make sure you include an additional sponsored segment slot in your episode so that the holiday campaign ad is included in your episode(s).
How do I get ensure my holiday campaign ad plays in my episodes?
This ad will be added into your episodes wherever you have Sponsorships segments activated, including already-published episodes. To ensure your ad plays during your podcast, please include more than one sponsored segment in your episode. This can be done in the "create your episode" page by selecting "add another sponsored segment."
Please keep in mind that you can only have up to three ad slots total in each episode, so if you have two existing paid ads and you want to read two holiday ads, you’ll need to temporarily take down one of the paid ads to serve the second holiday ad.
