Part of the excitement of attending BEA is meeting so many wonderful authors and publishers, as well as all the amazing books you come in contact with and get to bring home. Armchair BEA strives to bring as many of the aspects of Book Expo America as possible into the homes of our fellow book bloggers in every way possible, including through our sponsors. Each year we've had outstanding support from Sponsors, from authors to publicists and many of the publishing houses attending the event in New York. (View the full list of all past sponsors here.) This year we'd love to continue that tradition and this is where our Sponsors come in!
As part of this event, you will have two options . . .
(1) **Sponsorship** hosted right here on the Armchair BEA site. Keep reading for more information.
(2) A giveaway hosted on your own personal blog or site. For these personal giveaways, we will have a post available during the week of the event for you to link to your own site. Personal giveaways are separate from sponsored giveaways, so please do not fill out this form if you fall into this latter category.
You may be asking...who qualifies to be an Armchair BEA Sponsor?
- A Sponsor could be an author, a publicist, a publisher, a bookstore, and potentially even other fellow book bloggers.
- Please Note: Due to the high number of Sponsors over the last few years, we are asking that book bloggers wishing to sponsor Armchair BEA be those that are unable to participate in the "Giveaway Day" during the event week. If you know that you will not be able to participate in the event (for whatever reason) than please feel free to fill out the form below to sign up to be a Sponsor!
What does being a Sponsor for Armchair BEA provide you with?
- Listing on the Armchair BEA Giveaways Page as a Sponsor, including links back to your website or other specified page.
- Advertising of whichever title(s) you wish to provide with your Sponsorship.
- Mention on social media sites such as Twitter (@ArmchairBEA), Pinterest and our Facebook Page.
- Photo ops live from BEA from our on-site corespondents. *Limited spots available. See the sign-up form.*
- Viewing by hundreds of book bloggers as well as their followers. (Last year we had over 500 participants!)
- Possibility of promotion by the bloggers who receive winnings. (Though it is at each individual blogger's discretion what they choose to share on their personal sites/blogs, we will encourage them to make mention of their winnings in some form either via an In My Mailbox post, review, or a way they are comfortable with. Again, not required.)
We believe that our Sponsors truly make Armchair BEA one of the best ways to participate in BEA from the comfort of their very own homes and appreciate each tremendously! If you wish to be a Sponsor for Armchair BEA 2013, please take a few moments to fill out the form below.
PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to have your item(s) hosted here, credit and link love will be given to you and we will handle the contest itself; however, you will still be responsible for shipping your item(s) to the winner(s). Shipping information will be provided to you by one of the members of the Armchair BEA Sponsorship Team once they have been selected. Sponsorship offers will be accepted until Sunday May 18, 2014 to allow for time to prep proper publicity for each. Thank you!
