Dear Sponsorship Seeker
Working in a passion niche like Sports, Events, Charities, Content Creation or Gaming is a tremendously rewarding and often fun environment to work in.
Do you know what isn’t so fun about working in this niche though?
The constant struggle and requirement of securing new revenue to keep the doors open.
Every day, constantly balancing up between staff costs, operating costs, growing the organisation, investing in future developments and generating revenue.
Pursuing sponsorship from brands to help ease this pressure would surely mean everything would become so much easier, right?
But, how does someone actually get Sponsorship.? It sounds easy enough. Get some brand to pay big money in exchange for putting their logo on some marketing material. Boom, done!
Here’s how it normally goes.
It starts with developing sponsorship proposals with professional designs, great pictures and all the benefits that came to mind.
The proposals come with well thought out sponsorship levels like Gold, Silver and Bronze packages with varying amounts of free tickets, logo placements, the ability to activate and brand awareness opportunities.
It gets sent out to all the usual suspects, Nike, Coca-Cola, Banks, Insurance Companies, Car Companies, Travel Companies and so on.
But, for the most part, it falls flat on it’s face and hardly anyone even replies. Or it’s some generic email response which is generally a polite form of a big fat NO.
When a brand finally does come on board it’s so tough to keep them, let alone knowing how much money to ask for without scaring them away.
Half of them have regular staff turnover which means the relationship manager changes often, and of course their replacement wants to change or challenge everything that was already agreed upon.
Most of the time it seems next to impossible to actually get the brand to spend money on leveraging their sponsorship, while at the same time they’re wondering why they’re not getting sales from the sponsorship.
It was all supposed to an easy fix to the financial struggle of working in a passion niche. Now it seems more like a full-time job.
That doesn’t sound so fun anymore.
If only there was a way to approach brands and not only do they return emails about sponsorship proposals, but they get excited to chat about it and interested in hearing more. How much of a difference would that make?
Imagine having enough confidence and not worrying about how much money to ask for?
Finding a way to get brands to open up their wallets and spend extra money on leveraging their sponsorship over and above the money they originally paid.
