I have a social enterprise that empowers women and run a coaching practice to pay my bills. I currently reach a network of 25000 (15000 on social media). In order to increase my reach I could increase my online chat show to weekly publishing, but need funding to manage professional quality good enough for commercial radio. Weekly shows will get me into an even bigger platform extending my market to 80000 more women on yet another social enterprise business. PS - Krowdster.co estimate a 12% success rate with kickstarter based on my social media platform to raise 35 000. I need $32000 for a years production at professional levels. need to know who to approach internationally with a similar ethos, who seeks exclusive sponsorship, has a customer centric approach with the intention to create a positive attitude in the midst of my target audience 45 year old women entrepreneurs in Africa
I agree with those who have suggested starting a Patreon since you already have a large network.
In addition to that, however, I would suggest seeking out sponsorships with companies who have complimentary missions and values as your podcast, or products that can serve your listeners. Since you're a social enterprise, there may be grants out there too that would fund the kind of work you are doing.
If I knew more about your show, I could suggest some examples of potential sponsors I would approach. I'd also be interested in listening to your show as well! :)
