Blogging Idol 2 Is Coming: Looking for Sponsors

By Daniel Scocco

I am pretty happy with the success of the first edition. In fact, I get emails pretty much every week asking when the next edition will take place.

Well guess what, Blogging Idol 2 is around the corner. It will start on November 1st, and it will run for 6 weeks. The objective of the competition will be completely different this time, but hopefully just as exciting both for the participants and for the readers.

I can’t give out many details now, but stay tuned. The applications will open on October 15 (two weeks from today), and on that date I will write a post with all the details you need to know.

Sponsors Welcome

This post is just to announce that we are looking for sponsors. Blogging Idol 2 will be organized by Daily Blog Tips and Keyword Country, meaning we will try to make things even bigger.

So why should you sponsor the event? Because it will give your website or product a lot of exposure with bloggers and online entrepreneurs. Here are the numbers from the first event:

  • Over $3,000 in prizes for the winner
  • 5 sponsors
  • 108 competitors
  • Over 300 comments on the scoreboard post
  • 50,000 impressions on the scoreboard post alone (that is not counting the weekly reports)
  • 14,000 results in Google for “Blogging Idol”

The sponsors will have their logo (hyperlinked to the website) displayed on the scoreboard post of the Blogging Idol 2. Additionally, they will also receive mentions on the weekly reports.

What kind of prizes we are looking for? Basically two types: cash prizes and services or products of high value ($300 or more). There reason for this limitation is that there will only be one winner on the competition, so we can’t accept many small valued prizes (e.g., 30 ebooks or 50 t-shirts).

If you want to offer a prize or contact me to clarify any doubt, you can do that via the contact form.

For everyone else, stay tuned and wait until October 15!

    Awesome! Pretty excited for the second season of this to start. I may even apply to get in on the action! Wish I could sponsor, but I have zero cool tools or free offers to give away.

    We all learn’t a lot from your previous “Blogging idol”..
    Now also I am looking forward to have great learning(if not winning).

    And I think this time the rules and objective of the competition will be of greater value.

    Great idea to have it a second time around! Hopefully this can be a frequent thing for you as it obviously gave a lot of exposure to yourself, the sponsors and the winner.

    Being such a G player you should have your “Privacy policy” page somewhere but I’m having a hard time finding it…
