What the talk of racing sponsorships I also feel that it can be extremely valuable for businesses. With having a traveling billboard there are multiple events you could do to get to secure sponsorships. I'm looking at getting into a P-5 boat and want to start approaching prospective sponsors now to see what I can get.
The type of sponsors I'll be targeting will be the smaller companies.
My question is what are the price points you should figure, when trying to secure a sponsor?
What are some of the dollar amounts I can ask for/expect to get?
What I was thinking for when approaching a prospective sponsor is to break it up into 3 categories.
Executive Sponsor - Name of company across boat, on trailer, t-shirts, covered in all literature, ECT. ECT. ECT.
Intermediate Sponsor - Med. Sized logo of Sponsors Company on boat, covered in all literature, t-shirts
Personal Sponsor - Small company logo on boat (if available), 2 T-Shirts
This is just something I've been thinking about. Figured someone could shed a little advice from there experience.
