Here’s How It Works

We have streamlined this process and cut the fat to bring you the most effective valuation and strategy product on the market today. This process is comprehensive and designed to give you everything you need, from start to finish, to launch your sponsorship program, connect with prospects, make the sale and renew your sponsors.

The Turnkey Sponsorship Solution is a 7-stage program but don’t worry, we do all of the heavy lifting for you! Once you’ve selected a “sponsorship property” (the event, gala, conference etc. that you hope to raise money for) we take you through each stage, listed below:

STAGE 1

Determining What You Have to Offer Sponsors

We know what sponsors are looking for and will help you build a large and attractive inventory of assets to offer your sponsors (from logo placement to speaking engagements to product placement…and everything in between).

This stage includes:

  • Review of what you currently offer sponsors (from logo placement to speaking opportunities and everything in between)
  • Audit of your sponsorship proposals and strategy
  • Competitor research to identify what the market is offering sponsors in your specific area
  • Growing your inventory to include everything that sponsors are looking for

STAGE 2

Determining Your Unique Value

Valuation, or how much to charge sponsors, is one of the most consuming elements of the sponsorship process. Once we’ve developed your inventory, we will do a complete valuation of everything you have to offer!

This stage includes:

  • Researching and applying a value to every single asset in your inventory
  • Determining how much your organization’s reputation, mission and brand is worth and what you can charge sponsors for the right to work with you

How much is a logo on a sign, or a Facebook post really worth? That’s what this stage is designed to tell you. You won’t have to guess at your value anymore, once we’re done you will be able to ask your sponsors with confidence, without fear that you’ve guessed wrong.

STAGE 3

Understanding Your Audience

Your audience is the key to your sponsorship program. Sponsors want to know exactly who you have access to, who cares about your organization and who you can help your sponsors connect to.

In this stage, we focus on understanding:

  • Who is your primary audience?
  • Why should sponsors care about your audience?
  • What does your audience want from a sponsor?
  • Will your audience embrace sponsorship or will they find it inappropriate?
  • What types of sponsors are the right fit for your audience?
  • How can you use this data to connect with sponsors?

STAGE 4

Who to Talk to and How to Get in Front of the Right People

One of the most challenging aspects of sponsorship sales is getting in front of the right people and knowing what to say when you finally get that meeting. Finding the time to prospect is a real challenge and that’s why his stage focuses on answering the following questions:

  • Which sponsors are most active in my space?
  • Which companies care about my audience and my cause or mission?
  • How many companies are there who would have an interest in my opportunity?
  • Who are my prospects currently working with?
  • Who are my competitors successfully getting sponsorship dollars from?

STAGE 5

The Sponsorship Package

Sponsors often want to see a short document that outlines your opportunity and your key audience segments. We will develop a short business case, focused on the most important information, in the most concise way, to give to your sponsors. This document also works as an internal training tool so that everyone fully understands what you have to offer.

We will develop a 2 – 3 page template that you can update every year and use as an internal training tool or as a sponsor facing document that will help your prospects understand your opportunity. We will take care of structure and copy but leave design up to you (it’s better this way…trust us!).

STAGE 6

Strategy, Training and Templates

The final stage of The Turnkey Sponsorship Solution is designed to get you up and running as quickly as possible. All of the stages come together in a comprehensive report outlining the opportunity and, most importantly, show you how to raise more sponsorship dollars. You will be able to implement the learnings as soon as the final session ends, guaranteed.

This stage includes:

  • A final report of our findings that can be shared internally to get everyone on the same page
  • A sponsorship sales strategy which will tell you exactly what to do (and when), how to engage board members and get internal buy in, how to get the meeting with sponsors and what to say once you finally get that meeting
  • A fulfillment report and sponsorship agreement template
  • A Final training session where we will show you everything we discovered, how to implement it and key next steps for you and your team

In other words, we will show you exactly what to do and when. We will give you the tools you need to move a sponsor from prospect to sale and show you how to combine steps in order to balance the demands of sponsorship with your daily responsibilities.

STAGE 7

How Long Does The Process Take?

The process, from start to finish, is 4-5 weeks. Your commitment is to make your team available for an initial onboarding session as well as a final training session (all of which is web based…so no travel for your team, or travel expenses from us!). Throughout the process, we will communicate by email and short phone conversations but aside from our two live meetings, there is very little extra work for you (leaving you to keep on fundraising, running your shop and putting out fires).

This process has been streamlined to move as quickly as possible, without creating a burden for you or your team.
