We have been planning for a blog competition for a while now and we thought there’s no better time than this New Year. Wait! Not everything is fine with our plans yet because of a small issue. We need to find a few more sponsors and that’s why this post.
Sponsor this event and how?
Here we are talking about a blog competition whereby we would like to set the prizes (cash and/or equivalent services) at a minimum of $500, $300 and $200 respectively for the winner, 1st and 2nd runner-ups respectively. Of course it can go further up. So far, we have managed to find a couple of sponsors for roughly $400 worth services and hence all of you sponsors out there have a great chance to contribute and help us here.
Your sponsorships towards the prizes can be one or more of the following:
- Cash prizes amounting to $100 or more
- Services such as Hosting, Site-Blog Upgrades, Themes sponsoring/improving, Graphics/Logo/Banner Design, Consulting, Search Engine Submission, SEO services, Affiliate Marketing etc worth $100 or more
- Products such as Gismos, Software, Gift Certificates, Coupons, Themes etc worth $50 or more
In addition, we would need a designer to sponsor a couple of banners and a logo for this blog competition campaign. The banner designer will get similar exposure like other sponsors.
Please note that every prize sponsored should be of a minimum value of $50 and no banner, text link ads, review posts as prizes please.
Those who wish to sponsor the event may please contact us via the Contact Form on this blog before 30th December ’08.
How does it benefit the sponsors?
As a sponsor, your logo and links will be appearing in all our campaigns and competition weekly updates. In addition, any relevant posts/services on your blogs/sites will be linked wherever applicable. This can definitely be a great campaign for your brands and services.
When will the blog competition start?
If everything goes well, we plan to send around the first communication by this month end and the competition will be starting in the first or second week of January 2009. Mostly it will run for about 4-6 weeks time before winners are picked.
Competition v/s Contest: Well, this is not a blog contest whereby winners will be picked at random but a competition whereby you have to compete against the other participants to achieve a certain goal (something like DBT’s Blogging Idol competition, perhaps at a lower profile than that). The norms and rules will be there and this will be monitored by our elite panel of judges. We hope to get between 75 to 100 competitors for this event.
It’s over to you sponsors and my readers may recommend some sponsor names as well if you already know some of them.
Stay tuned for the next update!
