If you have ever planned an event where you are in need of sponsorship in order to pull it off, you know the pains that come along with the whole process. Especially if you reside in a small town where the same organizations tend to repeatedly get asked to be sponsors. As event organizers we are forced to get creative with our ideas on who to ask to sponsor. The key is to find sponsors who are relevant to the event’s objectives and will also bring value to the sponsor’s organization, making it a mutually beneficial union.
If you are new to the process, it can be a very overwhelming undertaking. Thankfully, people have picked up on that and are eager to streamline the process for you. Sponsor My Event and Endorsevent are two resources for event planners who are looking to find interested sponsors for their next event.
In a nut shell here is how they work:
“1. Event organizers publish their event on the platform and provide all necessary details, including sponsor-packages. As soon as an event is validated it is sent out to matching sponsors and can be found on the site’s search-engine.
2. Sponsors take advantage of a complete SaaS-solution that allows them to manage all their sponsoring-opportunities. They can find and review all kinds of events, negotiate with organizers and close a deal right away on the platform – including secure-payment of the sponsoring-money.”
It takes a little time to set up the event, but once it is set up the event is exposed to hundreds of potentially interested sponsors! This is definitely cool stuff and worth checking out for your next event!
