    Hey,

    I was just wondering if any of your blogs have been sponsored by a company for anything. It could be going to a conference to do with your niche or whatever. Any type of sponorships and if you have any tips on getting sponsored then I'd appreciate that! Thanks

    Subscribed as I want to know how to get sponsorship. But I guess the blog must be huge, eh?

    You're going to have to have a very popular blog which gets a few 1000 visitors per day if you want to find someone to sponsor your blog.

    I think that's not enough. I am getting 4000-5000 visitors per day and no one have contacted me for buying ad space. You need to be a big fish...

    No matter what you're doing, sponsorship and advertisements work the same way. The difference is that you actively seek out sponsors and ask them to sponsor you, while advertisers should contact you for ad space.

    In EITHER situation, they both want to know "what's in it for me". You should be able to say:

    "I have X [demographic] visitors everyday, interested in/looking for the [niche/industry]. If you sponsor/advertise on [website] you'll get these benefits (shoot for 3, odd numbers are great!). Here are the options..."

    If you don't have the traffic yet... work on that first.

    Have YOU looked for sponsors/advertisers? If you're in a specific niche and have 1,000 targeted visitors a day, you should easily be able to sell ad space. But you'll have to promote it.

    1) OpenX ads
    2) Buysellads
    3) Use wp ads or similar plugin marketplace for ads.

    Getting sponsorship or advertisement is not an easy game. You must have strong website because they both are quite similar to each other. Lots of the promotion is the key.

    I think having active users is more important than having high number of visitors. The type of users who spend time on your site and comment and share. A friend of mine has a review site for IT news and although the visits are not that much, he has an active community and got a sponsor.

    Thanks for all the responses. I don't think I'm ready to be looking at sponsorships just yet.
