The F.I.R.E. Network supports multidisciplined recovery content creators who provide content/guidance for those looking to become sober or maintain their own sobriety.Your recovery “brand” or identity will benefit from this shared network of creators in the following ways:
- Audience crossover exposure – You will receive an instant shared audience boost and be given access to a wide audience of recovery
- Shared advertising – Your brand will reach each creator’s audience without any additional work on your part – Simply drop in our 30-sec ad, static banner, or link to us
- The Friends in Recovery Enterprises – Works to encourage a large audience acquisition strategy with support from its support team
As each creator works to funnel its audience into the F.I.R.E. Network, each participant will benefit from each other’s efforts in the same way and same marketable space. We look forward to considering and including your content today!
0.0 – OUTLINE
This outline was created with the care and support of Carl D of Sober Pod Podcast and Jersey Ed of the Friends in Recovery Podcast.
1.0 – ABOUT THE F.I.R.E. NETWORK
The F.I.R.E. Network provides a place for content creators in recovery to highlight their efforts and connect with others in the recovery community. Creating unique, worthwhile content is time-consuming, and managing a website, social media, and other forms of promotion can take away from content creation and other efforts in our primary focus.
The F.I.R.E. Network provides its content creators with greater freedom to create while maintaining their autonomy. Providing a central location for aggregating podcasts, social engagement, and a shared website environment for listings, bios, and additional content/promotion when needed.
2.0 – JOINING THE F.I.R.E. NETWORK
Joining The F.I.R.E. Network is easy. Simply contact us at our website (FriendsInRecoveryCommunities.com) and fill out the Content Creator (not currently available – just contact us: email@example.com) form. We are currently launching our network with support and emphasis on podcasts, articles/blogs/stories, and app education (audio/video), and look forward to hearing from you, too.
3.0 – CONTENT CREATORS
We can’t wait to hear from you! Through our recovery experience, we all have a voice to share with others. Reaching the greatest audience possible while being of “maximum service” is our highest ideal. “Our only aim is to be helpful,” and we hope that by creating the F.I.R.E. Network we can be helpful to you, the recovery content creators we intend to serve.
4.0 – SOCIAL
Having a shared social presence is also something that our content creators can benefit from. We still encourage you to have your own social channel, but what we are hoping to provide is a social channel with the F.I.R.E. Network that promotes all of our efforts together, one that you can fully participate in without having to manage yourself. With The F.I.R.E. Network Social Team, we can all encourage listenership and advertise new apps, episodes, podcasts, and recovery content.
The F.I.R.E. Network friendsinrecoverycommunity.org will be a website to house all the content relating to each show carried on the network. Though it will still be up to each show to provide its own websites, podcast hosting, and the like, our website will be a resource for bios of personalities, additional services offered, and listings of each show. As we grow, we may be able to offer blogs, workshops, books, materials, etc.
5.0 – F.I.R.E. PROMOTION
We hope to gather more creators for the F.I.R.E. Network and encourage a wider range of recovery content providers with various styles and focuses. We are looking to attract the very best creators in our space.
Each form of media will be required to display a certain amount of advertising.
Audio-only podcast episodes will be required to carry a 30-second “FIRE Network” audio spot. We will encourage listeners to browse other content/shows in The F.I.R.E. Network in these spots. Our prerecorded audio is preferred, but this can be done with written scripts for live recordings if needed.
Display media such as websites, blogs, apps, etc. will be required to participate by displaying a link in the bottom portion of the media. Websites/Blogs will need to provide display ad space. This may be in the form of in-line ads or banner ads. Because not every aspect of your content can be predictable or planned for, there will be accommodations for including your property in the F.I.R.E. Network that will need to be discussed.
If you have an email list; including a link in the footer or feature to the FIRE network Creators page would be expected for each mailing. The exact verbiage and images needed will be provided on our Creators Support Page (not yet live).
Current Participating Entities
As we grow in scope and audience, we intend to have outside advertisers participate in our network. Providing space for advertisers in podcasts (60-second ad) or display ads (banner space). If necessary, any additional time/space would be negotiated with shows on the network. A percentage of the money acquired from advertisers would be used to add services to the network as well as additional promotions that benefit ALL the creators of the network.
To participate in our network, you must provide monthly/quarterly analytics. Though no current plans are in place to modify or adapt our model based on analytics, this information will benefit all of us in the future as it will be shared with potential advertisers/corporate donations/sponsors. If you are unaware of how to access your analytics, we can help you to determine this need.
8.0 PARTICIPATION AND OWNERSHIP
