We have multiple ways to work with us.
Our sponsorship opportunities for the podcast are currently booked for the foreseeable future. If you would like to be added to the list of potential sponsors, please contact us with your name and company information, including your web site URL. We will contact you if a spot opens up.
ECF Live Sponsorship
Each year we hold an exclusive 3-4 day event called ECF Live. All attendees are members of the eCommerceFuel Community, a private community for experienced store owners. This year more than 80% of attendees own or run a business doing over $1 million in sales. And 48% own a business doing $2.5 million or more in sales. You can read more about the event here.
As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to connect with and get in front of high-volume merchants in a small, personal environment. While our 2020 event in February is sold-out, we will be opening up sales for our Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorship packages in late summer/early fall of 2020. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the 2021 event, please contact us and we will get you on our potential sponsor list and provide you with additional information including pricing.
SaaS and Software Partnerships
We partner with respected SaaS and software vendors to help you earn customers from our vetted Community of seven-figure merchants.
Why Partner With Us?
- We are the world’s largest, most recognized community of 7-figure+ eCommerce store owners.
- Our 1,000+ members generate $4+ billion in GMV and spend tens of millions on SaaS annually.
- Our forum has 30,000+ private forum posts annually, many discussing software products and/or issues.
- Our members have an average annual revenue of over $2 million.
Here’s How it Works
You offer an exclusive discount to our members and we’ll get you in front of our concentrated pool of experienced, savvy store owners who are looking for great SaaS tools to run their business. These are established store owners who provide high LTV as customers. When they incorporate your software into their tech stack and workflows they’ll likely stick with it for a long time, assuming it provides value.
The offers you provide are published only within our Community and are not shared anywhere outside.
We aren’t looking for any type of kickback or affiliate payout – we simply want to save our members as much money as possible!
Our Review Directory
Inside our Community we’ve built a proprietary review directory that scans all our member’s sites and reports on what software they use in real-time. Alongside usage stats, we show reviews from members as well as any exclusive offers a vendor has provided.
Our members frequently browse the directory to learn about new tools for their business, and the presence of a compelling offer can tip the scales in them picking one service over another.
You can see an example screenshot of what a Directory listing looks like below (reviews hidden for confidentiality reasons):
We’ll Feature You in Our Newsletter
Once a week we send out a newsletter to all 1000+ of our members, and we’ll mention your company and discount. Currently, our newsletter has almost a 50% open rate and a 15% click-through rate.
To Qualify For Our Partnership Program
There are two criteria to be considered for inclusion in our Program:
- Reputation: You need to have a solid reputation as measured by reviews in our Directory and/or our own research.
- Meaningful Offer: Your offer needs to be at least a permanent 20% off your listed pricing or a minimum of 3 months free.
