Non-Cash Sponsors

WHY NON-CASH PRIZES?

Our non-cash prizes encourage bloggers to take a close look at what our sponsors have to offer and then write about what they find out:

  • Bloggers write about what they see here that they most wish to have.
  • Posts about these sponsors are scored and count towards the cash prizes.

We are giving sponsors read only access so they can see what bloggers
have written about them before the posts are published anywhere.

This is an excellent way for businesses to identify top bloggers in their niche and
for bloggers to find brands, businesses, products and services they can recommend.

HOW NON-CASH PRIZE WINNERS ARE CHOSEN:

  • Non-cash sponsors choose their winner(s) from among the posts written specifically about them.
  • Each sponsor awards their non-cash prize(s) themselves to the blogger(s) they feel wrote the best post(s) about what they have to offer.

BENEFITS to SPONSORS and BLOGGERS:

  • Sponsors are written about by those bloggers who are most interested in what they have to offer.
  • Bloggers get valuable experience writing about businesses, products and services which grows their valuable blog outreach skills.
  • Gail from GrowMap will personally mentor bloggers one-on-one to write the very best posts they can.
  • Bloggers may publish their guest posts on their own blogs or Gail will assist them in having them published on higher profile blogs that best reach the sponsor’s desired audience.
  • Sponsoring brands and bloggers most passionate about those brands can then build relationships where the bloggers whose posts the brand most admires can become brand ambassadors for that brand, rolling out new products or service offerings, reviewing existing products, and offering coupons or deals to generate sales.
