Bloggers, Meet Advertisers – Part II
Five months ago, we worked with a handful of companies and bloggers in what we called the ‘advertiser pilot program‘. The idea was to pair up bloggers with brands in a mutually beneficial way. A lot was learned from the pilot program and now we’re looking to build off of what we learned. Over the next week, we’re going to be reaching out to bloggers and brands alike and would love for you to participate!
- Bloggers: If you are a blogger or know of any bloggers interested in being partnered with brands or have partnered with brands in the past, we’d love to ask you some questions! Sign up to learn more: http://bit.ly/yv9lti
- Brands: If you’re a brand interested in discussing how Rafflecopter might be able to help with your blog outreach promotions, we’d love to hear from you! Sign up to learn more: http://brands.rafflecopter.com
If you were a blog who has already signed up with us over the past 6 months, we’ve already got you on our list, but you’re welcome to sign up again :-)
Have you noticed the design updates to the widget? Did you know you can now edit the title of your Facebook pages on the widget? We even added a button to log in with your email to the widget.
