Find Sponsors for Your Blog Giveaways

February 21, 2012 by  Filed under: Marketing 

Now that you have designed a fantastic blog with all the right design and right content, you might be interested in hosting a giveaway contest. Giveaways are a wonderful way to add value to your blog! It is a good way to give back to your readers for visiting your blog and also to attract new customers who will hopefully check all your great content. If budget is a constraint that is stopping you from hosting giveaways, try finding a sponsor. In this article, we are going to discuss how to find a sponsor for your blog giveaway.

• Approach businesses whose products will be a good fit for your blog! A business owner whose products have nothing to do with your blog will surely not be interested in sponsoring your giveaways. So there is no point in approaching such businesses, and wasting your time and efforts. Make a list of business domains your blog is related to. For example, if you have a fashion blog, apparel stores and accessory stores will be good choice for sponsors

• Do not send messages to companies on any public forum or third party websites. The best way to contact a sponsor is to login to their website, find an email address or contact form and send a personal message to them.

• Check other blogs that are similar in size and content to your blog and are hosting giveaways. Look and check what giveaways they have done before. Companies that have earlier sponsored giveaways are familiar with the entire concept and are much more likely to agree to sponsor.

• We all have a wish list of item that we would love to have as giveaways. There is nothing wrong in dreaming big, but it is better to be realistic. Think of the items that you would love to receive as a free giveaway. Send a detailed email to the company explaining about the things you are looking for and how investing in your blog can be beneficial for their product and their company. Even when you have received a few no from big sponsors, it is okay to approach some other companies. A single yes received after several no can make the entire process worth it.

No one receives success instantly. Don’t lose confidence even when you initially hear no from sponsors. To make others believe in your abilities, you must believe in yourself. So, believe in yourself and follow the tips above to get a guaranteed sponsor for your blog. Good Luck!
