Do you want a little publicity from ProBlogger to the wider ProBlogger reading community?
Later this month I’ll be celebrating the 3rd birthday of ProBlogger.net.
Rather than letting the date creep up on me and then wondering what to do to celebrate I thought I’d plan ahead this year and make it a fun day (or two… or three) by doing some giveaways for readers.
I’ll be coming up with a few prizes of my own to give to readers but would love to supplement them with some other prizes and gifts from sponsors interested in being a part of the festivities and getting themselves a little attention.
If you’d like to be a part of this by offering a prize (in return for a little publicity here at ProBlogger) please email me with the following information in the following way:
- email darren AT problogger DOT net (substitute AT and DOT with the appropriate @ and .)
- make the subject line ‘BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY’
- describe the prize you would like to offer (what is it and what’s it’s value)
- include a link to the prize if you have one
- include your name and the link to the site you’d like me to link to in return for your prize
Please note: While I would like to include as many prizes as possible – if past experience is anything to go by I won’t be able to accept every offer of a prize.
Please also note that I have an international audience and prizes need to be able to be received by readers around the world so please factor in that you’ll need to pay for any shipping if it’s won by an international reader.
Prize submissions will be accepted until the end of the week (Friday).
Prize Suggestions: When I’ve run competitions previously at ProBlogger the prizes that have gotten the most positive feedback from readers have been cash (no surprises there), gadgets, vouchers and ‘fun stuff’. We’ve previously had holidays, computers, iPods, Nintendo Wii’s and even an eye massager.
While things like ‘hosting packages’, services and ‘ebooks’ might be relevant to bloggers – they don’t seem to get quite the attention. You’re more than welcome to submit these ideas as prizes – but I do get a lot of these offers and will only be able to use a few of them. The more fun and creative the better (plus it doesn’t hurt if it’s got some value).
What do you get in return?
I don’t want to give away what I’m doing completely yet – but you’ll be getting promotion in return for your prize on a number of pages/posts on ProBlogger. If past experience is an indicator – you’ll quite probably get linked to from other blogs also as these competitions cause quite a buzz. The better the prize the more attention you’ll get of course!
Looking forward to hear what you come up with.
