Expose Yourself to My Readers – Group Writing Project Sponsor Needed

Posted By Darren Rowse 25th of April 2007 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

Hmmm – that title didn’t really come out right – I can just imagine the offers I could get for this.

After massive reader demand (I get emails every day asking about this) I’ve decided to do another ProBlogger Group Writing Project – and I’m looking for a sponsor!

Yep – this time I’ve decided to go with ONE prize instead of 5 or more because I want to give one generous sponsor the chance to get all the attention.

What I need – I need a fantastic prize! Previously our prizes have been pretty amazing – we’ve given away a week’s accommodation in Spain in a luxury Villa, video game consoles, vidoe ipods, thousands of dollars worth of vouchers to various online shops etc.

This time I’d like one jaw dropping prize.

What You get

  • Over the week of a group writing project sponsors get talked up in at least 7 ProBlogger posts. I generally include a link to the sponsor and the prize that they’re offering towards the top of posts
  • As you’ll be the only sponsor you’ll get exclusive billing in each of these posts
  • In addition to that I’m happy to run a 125 x 125 pixel ad in my side bar for the week and write an introductory post on ProBlogger launching you as the project’s sponsor for the week. I’m happy in that post to talk about your company and any product or service that you’re promoting
  • These group projects get 300-500 participants, most of whom link back to the pages that your links are on – some even link to the sponsors so the potential for a viral campaign is there if you have a worthwhile enough prize

Previous Sponsors have had some pretty nice results from sponsoring these projects and many have applied to come back for a second round of sponsoring the project. Those that did best had something a little different about the prize they were offering.

How to Apply – You’ve got two days from…. now…. to email me with details of the prize that you’re willing to offer. Please email me via my contact form with the following details:

Your Company Name:
Your Contact Person’s Name:
The Prize (a short description including a link to it if you have one):
The Value of the Prize:
A brief Description of what you’re wanting to achieve with the sponsorship (I want to tailor what I give you to your needs and hopes)

For ProBlogger Readers wanting to participate in the Project – sit tight. Once we’ve got the prize nailed down we’ll move forward with it and I’ll announce the topic.

  • Maybe you should make the title: Expose Yourself to My Readers – Group Writing Project Sponsor Needed

  • Here’s hoping NASA will offer a free trip in the Shuttle to a space station of your choice.

  • Can I offer my eternal gratitude as a prize? :)

  • That post title should get you some interesting Google traffic I should think :-)

  • Sounds interesting. I am curious and looking forward to this project.

    Kumiko’s sacrifice is something no one deserves. ;)

    Have a nice day,


  • Hmmm, the only problem that comes into my mind is that it will be difficult to find a unique prize that is valuable enough.

    The past editions had prizes adding up to thousands of dollars. We will need a sponsor offering something similar.

  • Daniel – you could be right although one option that one potential sponsor is offering is a combination of two or three things.

    If it doesn’t work out and I don’t feel I have enough to make the prize worthwhile I’ll go back to the old model ask for a few sponsors together. We’ll see how it goes :-)

  • Darren, one sponsor offering a combination of prizes is a good solution. Anyway I am pretty sure someone will offer something cool and valuable, it is just a matter of getting creative.

    I am looking forward for the topic!

  • I’m looking forward for the Group writing project. I had good fun in the last 2 times (but not your last one). My Technorati rank is taking a hit which I’ll have to improve. :D

  • I missed the last few projects, I plan to participate in this one. The prize really does not matter, these projects are worth the effort without them.

  • I missed the last project so i hope to be involved in this one

  • Like many others, I’ve missed the last couple of group writing projects due to other commitements, but hopefully should have time to enter into this one.

    I’m also quite sure that the exposure an author gets for taking part in one of these writing projects is more than enough compensation for the time taken to take part. While a prize or two is a nice incentive, I’m sure most are more bothered about getting some of the link-love that the projects generate.
