Big Advertising Oportunities!

In June, possibly July as well, I have a big event coming up for all my readers.  I am putting together a series of giveaways consisting of ad spots on various blogs.  The winner of each giveaway will get to experience the growth benefits of having an ad spot on another's blog when they otherwise may not have had the opportunity due to monetary funds and such.

I am really happy to be able to put this together, and would like to offer the opportunity to those who may want to donate some ad spots on their own blogs to giveaway.  Donating an ad spot has a lot of benefits, so not just the giveaway winner will "win".

For each giveaway, the giveaway sponsor who donates an ad spot(s) will:

  • Be featured in a post solely about them and their giveaway; it will be about what their blog has to offer readers.  What kinds of great activities and posts you have regularly and little about yourself to introduce you to potential new readers.
  • Increase traffic to their blog through various entry options for the giveaway.
  • Will list the winner of their ad under their sponsor or similar category on their blog.  Having a sponsor or a new sponsor will increase reader and unique visitor interest into hopefully becoming your paying sponsors as well so they can have an ad spot too.  Giving away an ad spot will hopefully get your sponsorship business going to help you maybe make a little money from all your hard blogging work.
I am starting early so we can work on promoting your giveaway to give you the most exposure possible to increase participation.  I am putting this together to help out all my readers, whether they want to enter the giveaways (sponsors can enter all the giveaways too, just not their own of course :-) or sponsor an ad spot, either way everybody wins and grows their blog.

If you would like to be a sponsor and donate an ad spot, send me an e-mail by the end of this week and I will start setting dates and giving you more information on how things will go.  Its going to be really easy and have lots of benefits.  Be sure an e-mail me sooner than later, because I only have so many openings left and they will go quickly.

I'm really excited to be able to offer this to you.  I almost wish it wasn't me so I could enter all the giveaways!  I know having an ad on someone else's site can bring you A Lot of new traffic you may not have had otherwise, since one of the biggest obstacles to having one is whether you can afford it or not.  So get ready, because come June/July, you are going to want to enter everysingle one of these so you can get as much new growth as possible by increasing your chances of winning a spot!!!

That's a great start Sarah. It is so true that giveaway offer generates more traffic through readership under sponsorship programs. The more active you are, the more you generate traffic and your consolation? You have a chance of getting freebies from your sponsors. Isn't it great?

Hey! You are my new blogging best friend!! I've been try to grow my blog for a couple of months, so far I've been really sucessful. I haven't made any money yet but I hope that at some point I will.
I just started a "sponsor" ad block on my blog and I've got room for one more!
My blog is mostly about photography & motherhood.
