Sponsorship is the most common way that event organizers get fresh funds for the event. This is very common. However, getting a sponsor is not an easy task. Sponsors don’t just want to release materials and money for an event. However, an event organizer must get supports and fund for a lot of things, such as stage properties and Content Creation. Therefore event organizers need a mature strategy before trying to find sponsors.
Here are several tips to get sponsors for your event:
Target Sponsor Listing
The first thing to do is make a list of companies or individuals that are your target for you to offer to be a sponsor of your event. Collect their complete data from the address and number that can be contacted. This will make it easier for you going forward when going into the field.
The concept of an interesting event
Make your event with an interesting concept and different from other events. With an interesting concept, it is expected that your target sponsor will be interested in collaborating.
Make Interesting and Selling Proposals
A proposal is something that is first seen by your prospective sponsor. And they generally don’t have much time to read your proposal. Therefore make an interesting proposal and “kick” so that your prospective sponsor when you see it at the beginning becomes interested in reading in the hope of finally agreeing to sponsor your event.
Keep Your Promises
Once your goal is achieved by getting a sponsor, then fill in all forms of cooperation and the things you promised to the sponsor on time. Do not make the sponsor disappointed because they feel cheated by you because you did not keep the promise when bidding first.
After the event is finished, it does not mean that your responsibility for sponsors is finished. You also have to give an accountability report to the sponsor for what the sponsor has given you for your event. Report honestly as is. Don’t overestimate or reduce it. By being honest, you will give a sense of trust to the sponsor to you who may be in the future the sponsor is happy to cooperate again with you at your next events.
