Dance Advantage wants to give thanks to its readers in November with a week of giveaways.
What it means to be a giveaway sponsor
Sponsoring a giveaway means dedicated attention on one post. This article will remain on Dance Advantage indefinitely, highlighting your company and your product or service of choice.
The contest also generates social media buzz and reader attention, with mentions on Twitter (over 1600 followers), Facebook (over 800 fans), and to feed and e-mail subscribers (approx. 1000) as we spread the word about the giveaway.
Interested businesses should be aware that our audience consists of primarily dance teachers, students, and parents pursuing or administering dance classes in private dance schools, community programs, and public education.
How to sponsor a giveaway
Giveaway spots are limited and operate on a first-come, first-served basis. We reserve the right to refuse any product that is not a good fit for Dance Advantage, its readers, or this contest.
The sponsorship fee is $50.
Giveaway items must total $50 or more and you must be willing to provide a product sample to the editor, should it be required. Beyond this, you are free to give away as much as you like to a maximum of three different readers.
Keep in mind that the number of entries your giveaway receives depends on a number of factors, including the type or value of prize offered. The better the prize, the more interested readers will be.
Those who are current Dance Advantage advertisers pay only 50% of the sponsorship fee.
Giveaway items must be sent/shipped by you directly to the contest winner. You will be contacted with winner details at the close of the contest.
If you are the maker of quality, hand-made items (etsy.com shops, artists, craftspeople, etc.) relevant to this audience and are interested in being part of the Giving Thanks week of giveaways, you may be eligible for a sponsorship fee waiver. Simply contact me with your interest and a description of your product.
How does the giveaway work?
A short post about your company and product/service will appear in its own dedicated post on one of the six days of the contest.
Details on how to enter the giveaway (usually a comment on your post) will be included.
The contest will be closed to new entries at the end of six days and the winner(s) will be chosen randomly.
Winners will be contacted, given time to respond, and sponsors will send their prize directly to the lucky readers.
U.S. and International giveaway sponsors are welcome. Please specify your ability to ship within a range or worldwide.
