Sponsor Sought for OC Times Candidate Interview Series

Sponsor Sought for OC Times Candidate Interview Series

(Crystal A. Proxmire, April 29, 2019)

Oakland County, MI-  Each year Oakland County Times does short video interviews with candidates running for local offices.  We do this at no cost to the candidate or to the readers.

This massive undertaking helps make local election information accessible to everyone.

It’s also a great way to reach the people most interested in what’s happening in the community.

We are looking for a sponsor for the 2019 election and the 2020.  There is a discount if a business wants to claim both.

For 2019 the cost is $950. 

For 2020 (which will have larger elections and more videos) the cost is $1,500. 

The cost for both years is $2,000 total if the business pays upfront.

For this amount you will have branding included in the videos, on each video post, and on every election related story that we do.  This also includes our annual “I voted” sticker selfie collage that makes our election results particularly fun and engaging. We can discuss other ways to make this sponsorship work for you.

Last year we interviewed 121 people.  The year before we did 84. Each year we improve in efficiency, quality, and reach.  Videos cover communities throughout Oakland County, and we include candidates of any political party. Videos have a range of viewership, from a couple hundred to several thousand depending on the race, community and candidate. We are nonpartisan and do our best to include everybody that wants to do one.

Sponsorship money helps cover the cost of this project including transportation, scheduling, equipment, editing etc.

Check out last year’s videos here. This year we will be asking a mix of fun questions, to show candidates thinking on their feet and talking more about what makes them unique.

Because this is a nonpartisan series we are not accepting sponsorships from political or cause-related advertisers for this series. However, there are other advertising options available for candidates and causes.

If you’d like to help make this year’s candidate interviews a reality, contact Editor Crystal Proxmire at editor@oc115.com to discuss details of the sponsorship.
