    i am planning to launch a site in the near future and to get started, i want to run a contest. i have been thinking about how to get the prize to offer. of course i have thought about offering it out of my pocket, but of course it would be better if i could get it a prize from on the companies in my niche, has anyone ever done that before, approach a company about volunteering a prize in exchange for publicity?

    Hundreds of times...

    It's not hard, but it does take a little research and some followup.

    Deal FIRST with suppliers you already have, you already know them and they you.

    Make the prize relevent... It doesn't even have to be in your niche, but it does need to be relevent to your customers.
