The problem with getting sponsorships that most Racers face is that they don't understand or offer the "value" the Sponsor is looking for. Beleive it or not, Exposure is only PART of the package and at the larger levels multi-million dollar teams are operating, exposure is a fringe benefit.
"Guest", I am interested in having a World Challenge Competitor to represent but that's because I work for Sponsors that operate at a level where exposure IS the point....
I'm trying not to give to much away or negatively impact GO ARMY and the reasons they operate like they do, but the world of high level Sponsorships is not necessarilly about exposure... its BUSINESS. And that business has to have a tangible return on investment IN ADDTIION to the exposure.
That's what GO ARMY needs and what many sponsorship professionals offer their customers, teams and sponsors.
That is a long way of saying this... you need to offer MORE at that level to make it worth it to them. There are many ways we do that extending FAR beyond exposure.
Don't feel bad or angry at GO ARMY or any other major sponsor. They are following their own charter and rules. You just need to figure out how to fit into that mold.
Let me know if I can help...
Are you ready?
