Anyone have experience working with, or ideas for recruiting brand sponsors that might provide product coupons for beta users?
Our project is an online music talent contest. We just completed an MVP contest with about 200 volunteer music fan judges. Of course, the contest features were rudimentary, the prizes were small, and only a few players won anything.
We'd like to request or buy (if really inexpensive), digital coupons or small digital gifts to distribute to players as appreciation for their participation. We also believe bringing a little business to a brand might get our feet in the door towards building a sponsorship relationship.
A perfect example of what we're looking for might be a 2-for-1 entree digital coupon from TGI Friday's!
Any ideas or contacts?
