Call For Sponsors For The 6th Annual JobMob Guest Blogging Contest

Get seen in one of the biggest blogging contests of any kind this summer.

Bad advertisingMy annual guest blogging contest is back for the 6th time and this one will be the biggest yet. Read on to see why.

(Planning to enter the contest? Get started on your entry to be eligible for early bird prizes, and stay tuned for the official kickoff soon, listing all the prizes to be won.)

Last update: July 18, 2012

Sponsors: you will get great exposure and great benefits

The 2011 edition of the contest generated almost 250,000 visits and 400,000 pageviews here on JobMob, 47% and 33% increases respectively in comparison to 2010.

JobMob's 2012 traffic has almost doubled since then so the numbers will be that much higher.

Participants, the people vying for your sponsored prizes, were mainly business owners such as job search coaches, other career experts, and blogging copywriters.

There will be 4 levels of sponsorship this year: Gold, Silver, Bronze and Chrome.

I want you to feel that your sponsorship was one of the best campaigns you or your company ran this year. So when it comes to benefits, I always try to give you as much value as possible, hopefully much more than the value of your sponsorship.

Below I detail what each level of sponsorship will earn you. I'm also flexible; if you'd like a benefits package that's better suited to your goals, I'll work with you to find a great fit. In some cases, you can even transfer benefits to a client or partner.

Warning: Only Honest Sponsors Wanted

A few years ago, the outsourcing company GetFriday was my top sponsor. Once the contest had ended and a recipient was chosen, they suddenly stopped replying to my emails or returning my telephone calls, and never awarded the top prize of the contest that year. As a result, I'm more careful about who I accept as sponsors.

How to sponsor: Easy

Use our Contact Form. Choose the subject ‘I have a suggestion', mention that you'd like to be a sponsor and we'll reply. To get full benefits for your sponsorship level, contact us ASAP or you might miss the official contest announcement, which will appear soon.
