Secrets of getting sponsorship online include:
Never think that low traffic and few subscribers won’t get you sponsorship for your contests. There are many people, mainly bloggers, who wish to offer beginners support. Don’t lose heart because of criticism and ridicule.
Be sincere and truthful
Never hide your true identity since others will find it impressive or your honesty might touch their heart. Sincerity will always earn you more than what lies would earn you.
It is the most crucial quality that would get you sponsors. Never get scared of rejection for there are plenty of chances for those who are confident and ready for them. Google the best blog contest and see the sponsors and email them.

Below is a sample mail requesting contest sponsorship.
My name is Apogee, I blog at bloghere.com- living online. It is a blog that focused on teaching people how to live online without much hiccups.
I’m planning to hold a contest on my blog to generate buzz and increase interactivity with others in my scope. With regards to this I would appreciate some sponsors. I would get them some back links and some information about themselves on the contest page.
Honestly, I don’t have massive traffic. I am hoping this contest would bring better exposure for my blog and yours as well.
So if you agree to this reply. I appreciate your support.
Share yourself in whatever you do for instance infuse the email you send with humour and a personal touch because such emails transforms the mood of their reader.
Remember the contest is as well an exciting experience for your readers and an avenue for marketing for your sponsors thus it should give something wonderful to everybody. If everybody doesn’t feel taken care of then that would spell doom for your future contests or your blog as a whole.
