Modules 5 – 8 of the Sponsorship Foundations Program

Finding companies that are willing to align with your organisation or event is not just about asking ‘who are we going to approach?’ In this part of the process we dive deeply into helping you work out how to value your offering to potential sponsors, showing you the kind of research you need to do to ensure a strong alignment, knowing where the decision makers are, how to build relationships with potential partners and craft a compelling proposal and approach.

Targeting the Right Sponsor

There is no point undertaking a ‘spray’ campaign in the hope that someone might be interested in becoming a sponsor – it’s never a good return on investment of your time. The ‘fit’ has to be right. We cover the ways to work out who you should target as a potential sponsorship partner.
