Types of Sponsorships:

To date, there are three types of sponsors I have received.

  • Monthly sponsors: Companies that pay monthly to sponsor GunGuyTV. (These sponsors have ads, product placements, interviews, etc. on GunGuyTV every month.)
  • One time sponsors: Companies that pay once to sponsor a dedicated video, podcast, or article. (These sponsors return periodically to promote a specific marketing campaign)
  • Affiliate Relationship: Companies that wish to “partner” with us to market their product or service, but only pay if they make sales. I do NOT accept these kinds of deals.

I’ll cover these individually.

Contact me for rates and availabilities.

Affiliate Relationship:

Affiliate relationships are the most common offers I receive. I have found affiliate relationships to be a complete waste of time. Consequently, I do not accept affiliate relationship deals.
