Selling sponsorship is one of the most effective and profitable strategic business tools for any organisation. Whether you oversee a billion-dollar corporation, a medium-sized charity, a local arts council, or even a neighborhood children’s football team, sponsorship needs to be part of your revenue and marketing mix.
Not only does sponsorship bring in money, but it also drives engagement in a way that traditional marketing can’t. Businesses, sports teams, music festivals, conferences, live events, small clubs and groups, nonprofits, and start-ups have all begun to realise the power of commercial collaboration and what those partnerships can deliver to their bottom line.
But there’s a catch. Selling sponsorship in today’s landscape requires a different approach and some specialised knowledge that isn’t readily available. This book will show you the pitfalls to avoid to ensure that virtually anyone can succeed.
