Bloggers and Brands Sponsorship Presentation Example

ces-consumer electronics show - Barbara Rozgonyi - Blogger - Sears

Whenever this question comes up, no one wants to, directly, answer it. The question is: how much does it cost to sponsor a blogger? The answer is: [I think] it depends on what the brand is willing to pay. It depends on what the blogger is willing to ask for. And, it depends on what value the exchange represents to the collective communities.

I’ll be honest: I like to represent brands. That’s me at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show representing Sears Blue Blogger Crew. I got this gig because I presented a proposal. We wound up with different terms that included shooting videos. It was a win-win for everyone.

Because I go to so many conferences, it makes sense that I offer to bring brands with me. As a blogger, I can introduce them to people and opportunities they couldn’t experience on their own. Plus, bloggers have community networks that brands want to access.

And so, I’d like your opinion on whether or not this presentation makes sense – for you as a blogger or a brand.

Looking for more insights? Check out this recap of the BBSummit’s improving brands and blogger relationships panel.

In putting this out there for everyone to see, I’m giving away a lot of behind the screen information. You will too, if you choose to go this route. For example, you now know how much traffic this blog gets, who reads it and how much I’m estimating exposure is worth. Granted some of this information is public. But, some of it is available only to the website owner. How much information do you share about your blog?

Brands: If you want more event or trade show coverage without even being there, sponsoring a blogger is the best investment you can make.

Some may see these sponsor investment estimates to be on the generous side.

As a professional writer who knows that the going rate for top writing talent in Chicago is between $150-$300 and up per hour, these numbers seem fair to me. But, as traffic goes up or down – or the audience sways to or from the brand’s target – they may be too high or low.

The presentation also includes advertising packages that go beyond a spot on the blog into full network coverage. What do you think of this approach?
