Promote Your Products and Brand in our Back to School Giveaway

by Susan

How much time do you spend browsing and shopping for school clothes and back-to-school supplies? If you’re like me and many other moms, you probably spend much of August thinking about your kids going “Back to School”.

I try to take my time choosing the products that my children will use for the coming school year. I’m not one to hastily go out and buy a backpack simply because it is on sale. I love to be able to read reviews, see how the product has held up in the past, and find out other’s opinions of the product before I actually purchase it.

That is why I am pleased to tell you about a new month long giveaway that we will be running during August — the 2012 Back to School Giveaway. Janice and I, along with our staff, are working hard to line up fabulous back to school products.

If you have a product, brand or website that you want to be featured in this giveaway event, there are two main ways for you to get involved.

Option 1 – You Have A Back to School Related Product for Review and Giveaway

If you have a product that you think our readers should know about — perhaps one that would make a child’s back to school transition easier or more fun — we would love to hear about it. If it fits the “Back to School” theme, we will work with you to get your item listed in the giveaway.

Option 2 – Your Brand or Company is Featured in a Post with a Giveaway of a Gift Card or Electronic Device etc

If you’d like to get involved in the giveaway and promote your brand or website, but your product is not a back to school item, you can still promote your brand in a giveaway post and provide other exciting prizing.

Posts that receive the most traffic, views and viral exposure are those offering prizes of such as gift cards for places such as Amazon or WalMart or electronics etc.

High value prizes that tend to do well are:

  • laptops/netbooks
  • ipods/ipads/tablets
  • smartphones
  • gift cards to places like Wal-Mart, Amazon, etc.

How Will the Giveaway Work?

During the entire month of August, we will have one daily “Back to School” related giveaway. The entire giveaway event will run from August 1-31 and will be linked daily to each post that goes up regarding the giveaway. What this means for brands and companies is daily advertising on 5 Minutes for Mom.
