Today I’m going to share a few tips to help you attract sponsors to your blog. These tips will surely help you get more sponsors and more money in no time.
How to Attract Sponsors to your Blog
You should always include some sort of “sponsor this blog” link that’s clear to see for all visitors to your blog. Create a page on your blog that is linked to your contact and about me section. This will feature your sponsorship opportunities and sponsorship pricing. If you prefer to get sponsors to reach out before you set rates, then just focus on having the sponsor link page be geared towards what each sponsorship package will offer. Have an easy way for interested sponsors to contact you directly to further discuss pricing.
Now that you’ve set up a place for businesses to see that you offer sponsorship opportunities, it’s time to write more about these opportunities. No one will know this page of sponsorship opportunities exists if you’re not promoting yourself. Write new content that features the benefits of opting to be your blog sponsor for the month, weekly or yearly. You can even have ongoing sponsorship opportunities, simply use this time to focus on being proactive with blog post content that pushes the information out to the masses that you’re open for business, and that business is accepting sponsorship money.
Use SEO and Hashtags
One of the best ways to get attention from anyone looking to buy a sponsorship on a blog is to use SEO practices in all blog posts as well as hashtags for social media shares. This will help you to rank higher for those seeking to spend advertising dollars on blogs that rank higher in their niche. Having an effective SEO strategy and using hashtags to push content out there to the masses will surely get some eyes on your blog. This method will help ensure that you attract sponsors to your blog on a regular basis once your content starts getting indexed by search engines.
Lastly, you can always reach out directly to brands and businesses that you want to have sponsorship from. Find some of your favorite products, brands, or businesses on the internet. You can easily find a media contact by Google the company or brand name with “PR” before it or “media” before it. Some businesses already have a way to contact their PR firm or Marketing Manager directly on their contact form. Do your research and give the company a call to see if they’d be interested in hearing more about sponsorship opportunities on your blog.
There you have it a few easy ways to attract sponsors to your blog without much effort. Each of these tips will surely help you start earning more money through sponsored posts, sponsored trips and other content in the near future.
