What Our Advertisers Are Saying
We’ve never been big on advertising but Archer Avenue’s all around high quality led us to try it out. The respect our ad was given really blew us away, and the caliber of the other sponsors as well as [their] professionalism convinced us we made a good decision. The best part is knowing that everyone who hears about GitHub on 5by5 is someone we want hearing about GitHub.
Chris Wanstrath, GitHub
Archer Avenue has been a valuable long term partner of ours in helping to increase awareness of our platform. The team at Archer Avenue genuinely cares about the companies they work with, and that comes through in every ad.
Ryan Stansky, Squarespace
Archer has been a surprisingly effective advertising channel for us. There’s no doubt the talent on their networks is top notch, but we’ve been amazed at how many people have joined MailChimp as a result of hearing our ads. Our goal in sponsoring is essentially a branding exercise - that so many listeners end up becoming MailChimp customers is icing on the cake.
Mark DiCristina, MailChimp
The thing about advertising with Archer is you know your sponsorships will reach customers who actively seek and use quality products. It’s an audience that appreciates a good relationship with service providers. A side benefit is the back catalog of shows. Your ad can still reach people months after originally airing because new listeners come along all the time.
Brian Stucki, macminicolo.net
We’re not big on advertising or marketing, so for us the key thing is a good fit with a vibrant community that "gets us". That’s exactly what happened with our sponsorship. When we became a sponsor, it was like we were suddenly embraced by a wide spectrum of innovators, geeks and power users. Archer was hitting the sweet spot for our core demographic. Measurable results followed.
Mark Jeftovic, easyDNS
We know podcasting because we are podcasters (at 5by5) and obsessive podcast listeners.
