VNewsletter – The Leeap Project

- October 15, 2012 2 MIN READ


Hey there Everyone,

I would like to formally announce a brand new project that will be taking place next month. Leeap, is a new Shoe String web series tracking an Aussie Entrepreneur around the US.

We have an exclusive offer for a limited number of companies to be involved in a new project we are backing, sending video blogger Simon on a 20 day, 10 city trip across the best startup hubs in the US. This 10 part series will be a REALISTIC look on what is happening in the US for Australians.

We are looking for expressions of interest for those who want to get Your brand on 10 videos in front of 30,000 [Australian] readers for just $250.

You will be listed as a sponsor for the series on the home page and your adverts integrated into every episode. This is not a project that is being made to be a profitable venture for Shoe String – We are passionate about the Aussie Startup scene and as the Editor of this publication, I believe that you can be as globally competitive here as you can overseas – so we are sending someone to live and breath with the ground level startup community to explore and sort out the hype from what is real.

EVERYTHING will be done on a Shoe String, in keeping with our mantra, flights, food and for our accommodation we have partnered with StartupStay.com and will be couch surfing with a series of well known Startup and Tech reporters, founders and startup lovers to show us what’s happening in their cities.

What do I get for my $250 Ad Package?

  • Your brand in front of 30,000 + Australian Viewers [worth $6,000 a month]
  • Your Business integrated into this 10 part video series
  • Your brand on the home page pop up that will show throughout the course of the video series [1 month]
  • Mention in our newsletter over the course of the video series.

Please note places will be limited, this is something that we do not do very often, and so will close expressions of interest for this package on October 17th. All revenue, goes towards direct costs of the series such as flights and food.

If you are interested please email Simon Walker at  swalker@shoestring.com.au
