“How Online Networking Rocked My Business” Contest: a Unique Sponsorship Opportunity

Calling all sponsors!

Contest graphicWe are delighted to announce a call for sponsorships in the forthcoming contest: “How Online Networking Rocked My Business.” This will be a multi-faceted blogging and social media contest for small businesses and entrepreneurs, presented by BizSugar.

The contest is designed to drive engagement and wide community involvement.  It kicks off in mid-June – right now we are lining up sponsors.  Here’s how it will work:

1. The contest will be open to small businesses and entrepreneurs.

2.  Entrants simply need to write a blog post about how online networking has benefited their business.

3.  Submit the post to BizSugar

4.  The grand-prize winner will be the one whose article gets the most votes on BizSugar.

There will also be special prizes for:

  • Most interesting comment, as chosen by our judges
  • The post with the most tweets and retweets
  •  2nd, 3rd and 4th highest vote totals

How to be part of this opportunity

We are offering a stellar opportunity to companies to sponsor and be a part of this engaging contest.  This is no “enter and forget it” contest.  Rather, it will involve ongoing engagement and activity across multiple websites and social media properties,  by small business owners and entrepreneurs  and their communities.

As a sponsor, your company will get in front of a significant and active community of small businesses and entrepreneurs. Sponsors get high visibility.  Be seen and recognized publicly as follows:

  • Spotlight your product or service by donating as prizes
  • Your company logo will be seen on the contest page
  • Your company logo will be seen in a contest graphic that is available for entrants to display on their blogs and websites
  • Inclusion in press releases and blog posts announcing the contest and winners
  • Increased visibility for your brand, and lots of social media amplification
  • Visibility in a Twitter chat or Facebook Q&A to raise awareness of the contest

To participate we are looking for sponsors who will provide a combination of cash and in-kind prizes.  This is a very affordable contest for those who wish to heighten and reinforce their brand recognition and  visibility among the small business community.
