Paying Sponsors

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring GunGuyTV. Here’s some information that you’ll need.

My focus

Before I type anything else, I should explain that I don’t make a living from GunGuyTV. I make my living from Practical Defense Systems. This is important for you to know so that you understand my view of paid sponsorships.

Since my occupational focus is on Practical Defense Systems, any sponsorship of GunGuyTV must generate sufficient revenue to justify my shifting the required amount of time and focus away from what I do for a living. To date, no sponsor has proposed anything that approaches that level of commitment.

Affiliate Relationship Deals

One of the most popular approaches seems to be the affiliate relationship deal. I’ve tried a number of them. It has been my experience that such deals waste a lot of time and make very little money, if any at all.  As a result, I have zero interest in affiliate marketing deals. Please don’t contact me to propose one.

I Get It

I understand why “sponsors” make the offers that they do. The reasons are fairly simple. The channel is small and there are a lot of similar sized channels out there.  I’m sure that many of them are happy to accept the kinds of sponsorships that are offered to me. Since those marketing options are available to advertisers, the current size and reach of GunGuyTV does not justify a large expense of advertising dollars. That makes perfect sense to me.

My hope is that this message will help you understand things from my point of view as well. Since I don’t have a financial need for a sponsor, any sponsorship must make sense financially and logistically before I will be interested in it.

Now that you understand the situation, if you still want to sponsor GunGuyTV, I’m happy to talk about it.  Please feel free to contact me.  My email address is joel@kbntinc.com.
