4 ways to win long-term event sponsorships
Organizing an event is not that easy to do, especially if it’s your first time. Even those who have been organizing events for decades still need some refreshers to make sure they can convince a company, an individual or an organization to sponsor their event.
But event sponsorship is a business. Sponsors would never sign a contract with you unless they are sure they can get something in return. So what will you do to lure possible sponsors to support your events?
All companies crave to get new clients every day and increase brand awareness for their products or businesses. That is exactly the reason why they agree for an event sponsorship with you. So make sure you get to fulfill this main goal.
Here are 4 ways that can help you convince companies and businesses to sponsor your events:
1) Create a venue for your guests and your sponsors to interact
Some people don’t like being offered with products that they don’t normally use or follow. But you can very well cut off this norm by having a spot in your event where your guests can interact with your sponsors without disappointing or scaring your guests away. You can do this by booking a photo booth in your event. A photo booth allows your guests to have fun and keep them relaxed. They can make new friends while having their photo sessions and your sponsors can join in the fun, do a little chit-chat and exchange business cards with your guests.
2) Ride on with the technology bandwagon
Almost anything can now be done online. With just one click, you can pay your bills, book hotels, buy groceries, or buy plane tickets. Go with the online craze and help your sponsors reach new clients through the power of the internet. In booking for a photo booth, choose the one that offers integrated social media sharing where your guests can share their photos online. Sponsors can ask your guests to share to them their most-loved photos during the event and you can even create a hash tag that would tie your event to the sponsor's brand.
3) Help sponsors gather personal information of your guests
Companies usually connect with prospective clients through emails or phones so help your sponsors gather personal information of your guests such as their email addresses and phone numbers. In booking for a photo booth, choose the one that offers an opt-in enabled email list from the photos taken and shared through the photo booth. This will allow your sponsors to do follow ups with your guests after the event.
4) Give gifts to your guests after the event
Giving your guests something to take home will help them remember your event and the sponsors that they met. Create your guests’ printable photos with the sponsor’s logo or hash tag. This allows your guests to remember easily who were at the event.
Meanwhile, aside from all these tips, it is also best to have a photo booth at the event venue. This will help make the party more meaningful as participants are able to get a snap shot of their activities.
