rocketboom_ebay.jpg Amanda Congdon’s Rocketboom today launched a unique eBay auction for advertising on its popular daily vlog. The $1,130 reserve has not been met, although there already are 19 bids.
The copy on the bid is an excellent media kit for Rocketboom. The highest bidder will receive “five original, fifteen second (minimum) – one minute (maximum) post-roll commercials that will span five days of programming, Monday-Friday, March 6 through March 10, 2006. Each day that week a different commercial that we create for your company will be played at the conclusion of the Rocketboom episode. ”
Rocketboom’s coverage of the anniversary of John Lennon’s death is included. It’s not representative of the daily broadcasts, but it’s one of Congdon’s best posts ever.
UPDATE: With six days to go, the reserve has not been met, there are 89 bids and the current high bid is US $14,999.99. My guess is that the reserve is $25K. There is no “Buy it now” price.
