Decide what it is that you want the sponsorship to achieve. Also decide what is the best arrangement for your club or group. Do you want sponsorship to cover:   Your entire event or activity?

Travel/accommodation costs? Advertising/promotion costs? Development programs? Slide4:  What can you offer?

Slide16:  Sponsorship Package Sponsorship Levels & Benefits Indicate the amount of benefit received at each sponsorship level What are sponsors looking for?:  What are sponsors looking for? Sponsors are looking for people who are potentially in the market for their products and services. Sponsors are looking for opportunity; remember that you might offer them an opportunity they never thought of (that’s why they haven’t called yet!) Sponsors will be looking to see that sponsoring your organization will be more effective than spending money on some other form of promotion or advertising. Sponsors want to be associated with success. They are also looking for a professional performance from you. Seeking Sponsors:  Seeking Sponsors Prepare a contact list of potential sponsors who look to be a match with you Once you have a proposal and a list of potential sponsors talk to them! Phone the companies and ask to speak to the manager/owner or marketing manager. Briefly tell them who you represent and what your plans are. Be positive; suggest to them (rather than ask) that you will send a sponsorship proposal. If it seems like no one is willing to speak to you, try to get the name of the most appropriate person and send a proposal anyway. Remember you have nothing to lose. Slide19:  Seeking Sponsors Don’t sit back and wait too long! Follow-up your proposal with a phone call at least five days after your proposal has been delivered. Try to find out when you might expect a reply, is there any other information that you can supply, are there things in your proposal that they would like explained? If your proposal is accepted arrange a meeting to discuss in detail, to begin to personalize your contact and develop your relationships. It might be a good time to get something in writing from your sponsor. Slide20:  Servicing your Sponsor If you promised it, then deliver it! Don’t try to save or make money by giving a sponsor less than you had agreed. If you think of something else that you can offer a sponsor and the cost or difficulty is minimal, do it! We all know the value of receiving something we didn’t expect. Try to build your relationship with your sponsor. Don’t over do it, but there is a lot to be said for some friendly contact. Call and ask how things are going from their end, is there anything they are having difficulty organizing for your event? Ask a sponsor out for lunch if you think it might help to build up your relationship and you can afford it. This can be before or after the event. Perhaps the opportunity may exist for your sponsor’s personnel to meet your members at your social functions. Slide21:  Servicing your Sponsor Follow-up after your event or sponsorship. Call your sponsor and find out how the sponsorship worked for them. They may provide you with valuable information for your next proposal, with ways in which your club event can be improved, of there might be something that you can provide now which may mean continued sponsorship in the future. Mementos of a sponsorship are also a nice gesture. Something as simple as a photograph can make a big impact. Be loyal to a sponsor. If they treat you right then return the favour. Try not to gain new sponsors if they offer services or products that compete with your current sponsors. When your event is taking place make sure that your sponsor’s rivals aren’t having their services or products sold or promoted by your club. Attention to detail, and looking after your sponsor’s needs, will enhance your relationship with them. Slide22:  Servicing your Sponsor After an Event: You should provide your sponsors with a brief report, which would include information such as: Attendances – the breakdown of males, females, adults, children. consider (don’t overdo the workload though) the possibility of conducting questionnaires or interviews with attendees – this information can help to give a profile of the sort of people who attend your events What were your successes? Where there any problems or issues? How can you improve it? Did your sponsorship achieve its goal, or purpose? Did your sponsorship get value for money? Did your club get value for money?
