Sponsorship Without Breaking a Sweat

It Isn't Just for Athletes Anymore! How to Get Your Piece of This Emerging Market

Guest: Julie Austin

This was a 60 minute teleseminar which took place on May 23, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. Central Time

Sponsorship has been around for centuries, but modern sponsorship is still in it's infancy. And most of the big corporate dollars go to large properties like music and sporting events. Sponsorship in the speaking industry is so new that most speakers don't even know about it or use it. That's the very reason you should get in on the ground floor before everyone else does. Or as I like to say "before all the parking spaces are taken". And here's why: Speakers who get in on sponsorship now will have the experience and connections it takes to sustain long term relationships with sponsors, which translates into repeat and steady PAID speaking gigs. One of the best ways to do that is with Speaker Sponsor. First and foremost, we're a directory. We drive traffic to the site through SEO, newsletters, direct mail, trade shows, and networking. But we don't just want to put up your profile and forget you. We also want to maintain a long term relationship with you with constant training that includes a VIP newsletter and interviews with industry insiders. Our monthly "Sponsorship in Action" is hands-on examples of unique sponsorships and how they can inspire you to create sponsorship opportunities that sponsors will latch on to.

What Was Covered in This Interview:

  • What sponsors are looking for
  • The 3 ways to secure sponsorships
  • How to evaluate your property
  • How to be a sponsor magnet
  • How to get sponsors to hire you over and over again
