The Support Service You Need, When Searching for Sponsorship in Nigeria

Your sport event may never see the day light without Sponsorship, because of the large amount of money required to execute it. So you need a Sponsor darely! The reason you must prepare and do your home work well before you aproach any company or corporate brand for Sponsorship, that is, if you don't want to be rejected.

By now you already know that searching for sponsorship is the hardest part, because no company is willing to throw around their hard earned cash for just any other sport event. You must convince them beyond any reasonable doubt that your sport event will be directly or indirectly profitable to their business... and show the management HOW; in measurable terms.

Disappointingly, most sponsorship proposal we see out there are more like someone or group of people asking an organization  for Donation. But Sponsorship is not a philanthropic gesture . Sponsorship is not  a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Sponsorship is when a company or brand provides funds, resources or services to a club or sport event, in return for some form of rights and/or associations with the club or event that may be used to help the company or brand commercially. The sponsor (company or brand) uses this relationship to achieve its promotional objectives and support its broader marketing goals.

So, if your proposal doesn't state in clear terms how the company or brand will benefit from the proposed sponsorship deal, then forget it! This is one of the reasons must sponsorship proposals end up in a refuse bin.

Indeed, if you don't know who the "gatekeepers" are, you're most likely to handover your proposal to the wrong person; who will without consideration, throw your precious document into the refuse bin.

You need a Sport Marketing Agency to support you in the several stages and processes of landing and closing a sponsorship deal. From how to break into a company and quickly get their interest to treat your proposal, the presentation and defending of your figures in front of the company's management...
