6 Tips for Sponsorship Sellers

We recently came across Gail Bower's 6 Tips for Sponsorship Selling in Turbulent Times. Here's an oversimplified summary for brevity's sake, but check out the full posting if you're interested at Bower & Co's blog:

1. Offer value.

2. Be a true partner.

3. Explore alternate markets.

4. Don't whine. Don't procrastinate.

5. Create the conditions for success.

6. Being flexible is OK; giving away the shop is not.
