Number one, (not picking on you) your not Greg Anderson or Jason Line so you must provide great information as to why they should sponsor you
Understand this, these guys get probally 500 REAL sponsorship requests a week and probally 1500 BS sponsorship requests from people just trying
These guys are very busy at the companies and dont have time for BS. You must ask ALL the questions they will
If I come to you and said LFT I need $5000 sponsorship for my race team. What are you gonna ask me? Write these answers down because the major sponsor is gonna ask you the same thing.
You dont want the man to send you 25 e-mails or phone calls asking questions because they will just move on to the next.
Be sure that you sponsorship letter / request has ALL THE ANSWERS to any question he may ask so that he doesnt have to wast his time hetting answers and can review your request properly
Pics of your cars, and info about the team is a MUST. You only race 2-3 days a week, he has a company open everyday. How is your 2-3 days a week gonna help him?
You have to supply him with information every so often and do it without being requested too
We have a couple sponsors and one sponsor we have had for a while we have a contract with that automatically renew every year.
PM me when you can or i will PM you
