This blog is currently (2012- 2013) under sponsor of a popular hosting company – IPSERVERONE. I was glad that I saved some money on hosting. They sponsored me a plan that worth RM600! So it’s not just for this blog, I can do a lot of things..
How to get hosting sponsor for your blog?
Actually I’m the one who take initiative to seek for this sponsor. Once upon a time (back in 2010 if I’m not mistaken), actually there was a new local hosting company willing to sponsor me without any contract or demand. But I felt worry because not sure of their server uptime and the company performance, so I made a decline to them.
I went to IPSERVERONE because as a customer I’m so satisfied with their server, and also their support, it’s 24 hour. I downloaded my analytic report for last 6 months, send it to them and ask for sponsorship, that’s it. It took a while for them to approve, maybe the desk supporter forward my email to the boss?
I offered an ad slot for their brand’s visibility, placed a credit on my sidebar of them as a win-win deal. I think the main reason why this blog get approved is because it has enough traffic. One month this blog generated 6 digits uv (unique visitors).
So conclusion of my tips :
- Don’t hesitate to request for hosting sponsor on your site. Seek not just one to maximize the chances.
- Offer back something, like ad slot, advertorial etc.
- Improve blog’s quality of course.. Design, domain authority etc.
- Ask your friends launch a hosting company (lol)
