Looking For Sponsors For 2 Year Anniversary Contest

The Beta News 2 year anniversary contest is about to kick off. In order to make the contest even more exciting I’m hoping to offer my readers and future readers some extraordinary cool prizes.

I’m therefore looking for some prize sponsors to make this contest as thrilling and interesting as possible.

The contest is planned to run over two weeks with a random drawing once per week (perhaps more often depending on the number of prizes). The big prize, which has yet to be determined (right now I have a $100 Amazon gift card) will be drawn on day 14.

The contest will be divided into several parts.

Part 1: Follow me on Twitter. At a random time I will announce a keyword on Twitter and the followers will have three hours to mail it to me. A random follower will then be drawn.

Part 2: Keyword in RSS-feed. Subscribe to my RSS-feed and mail the keyword to me. Again depending on the number of prizes, I’m hoping to have someone win every third to fourth day.

Part 3: Blog about the contest, a prize sponsor or The Beta News content. Write a blog post where the entrant must write about the contest or one of the prize sponsors or one of The Beta News posts (for instance Show Me Your Desktop) using some anchor text.

Part 4: Take a picture of your blog crib or desktop. Take a picture or a small video of what your blogger HQ, desk or computer desktop looks like.

Part 5: Each part gives you an extra chance to win the big drawing on day 14.

I will submit the contest to the 20+ contest blogs I know about. Write about it on Connectedinternet.co.uk and get as much link love from contacts as possible. The contest will be mentioned on my Entrecard and on as many social network sites as possible, without spamming of course. I still have a reputation to think of.

Prize sponsors will also get as much link love as possible from this modest Page Rank 4 site and from the entrants.

If you are interested in sponsoring me, please use my contact form or contact me on dbp (at) thebetanews.com.
