Attention all website owners, service providers, and to anyone looking to market themselves:
I am going to be launching a pretty big contest and so am now looking for advertisers who would like to sponsor a prize or two for it.
I will not be revealing the details of the actual contest here as I want for it to be a little bit of a surprise when it does launch, so if you’re interested in being a sponsor, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through my contact form and I’ll provide you with all the details
The contest will run for 2 months and is completely webmaster/online entrepreneur based.
While being a sponsor by giving out a prize does not suit everyone – for example, I never sponsor anything with my blog because the only prize I could give out is cash – it is usually a fantastic opportunity to anyone where it does not actually cost them anything. For example, if you’re a WordPress plugin developer, it doesn’t actually cost you anything to give out a few free copies, so in a sense it is free advertising.
Examples of Prizes I’m Looking For:
While I know that a lot of you are very giving, I do have to be a bit careful in the types of prizes that I accept for sponsorship. As a contest participant, there’s nothing that dissuades me from competing in a contest more than unappealing prizes.
For example, I am not interested in giving out “coupons” such as discounts or two-for-one offers; they should be completely free prizes with no strings attached.
Please note that I am looking for prizes that would be webmaster, business, or online entrepreneur related, although I’d accept unrelated prizes if they are big enough.
Also, please note that I am only interested in accepting prizes that are worth at least $25+ and no E-Books please!
- Physical products/merchandise (Ex. Cameras, iPad, etc.)
- Services such as web design, programming, etc.
- Website plugins, scripts, or licenses
- Free advertising
- Discounts, coupons, special “offers”
- Free advertising on a low-traffic site
- Unrelated prizes (Ex. X-Men action figurine)
Also, if you know of any companies, freelancers, or websites that might be interested in sponsoring the contest, please let them know about the contest or contact me and I’ll contact them myself
I am hoping to be able to launch the contest with $4,000 worth of prizes.
