    One of the most effective ways to reach people at a live event is to place your advertising right in front of them. At this advertising level, you can place materials (a standee, flyers, and/or a give-a-away) on a table at the event. You are the sponsor of that table for the entire 14 hours of the marathon allowing you to imprint on a captive audience. Additionally, we will have a poster-sized sign on site letting people know about the world record we are achieving with your logo on it. On this poster will be the logos of Southgate Media Group, the Blue Box Cafe, the Guinness Book, the two Main Event Sponsors (see Rewards 20 & 21) and the 12 table sponsors. This level puts your materials on one of seven 2 seat tables around the perimeter of the Cafe. As with previous levels, you (or your business) get a thank you from the stage four times throughout the day.

    Official Sponsor - Live Event

    At this level, you are one of two official sponsors of our podcast marathon. The reason there are two is we have one sponsor for the live event at the Blue Box Café in Elgin, IL, and one for the online marathon that is running concurrently on YouTube Live. Each marathon features different and unique content.

    Official Sponsors will be listed as such on all printed materials including the on-site poster, the program, and promotional poster to be placed where appropriate around Elgin and the surrounding communities. Your logo will also be displayed on the event T-shirts as Official Sponsors and on a display on the table that the marathon is conducted from. This will insure that your logo and name are seen on the video, both live and the edited versions. The online marathon will feature your logo on the screen between shows as the Official Sponsors. A “Thank you” will be given from the stage and during the live podcasts every hour to your organization as well. Your business will be listed as Official Sponsors on the webpage for the marathon and links will be place on the webpage and in the show notes for both the audio podcasts and edited videos on the Southgate Media Group YouTube channel. Tweets thanking you as Official Sponsor will go out twice a day leading up to the marathon and four times during the marathon from SMG’s 25+ Twitter accounts. A thank you to your organization will be placed on our 25+ Facebook pages twice during the week leading up to the marathon, as well once during the marathon.

    Finally, we will have a poster-sized sign on site letting people know about the world record we are achieving with your logo on it. On this poster will be the logos of Southgate Media Group, the Blue Box Cafe, the Guinness Book, the two Official Sponsors (your organization) and the 12 table sponsors.
