How to Overcome Six Fundamental Obstacles to Selling Sponsorships

It is tougher than ever to sell sponsorship, particularly in the Nonprofit sector. Sponsors are overwhelmed with proposals and the competition for limited budgets is extreme. This presentation will focus on six of the top obstacles and how to overcome them:

  •          How to break through the firewall
  •          Dealing with stakeholders
  •          Turnover and regime change
  •          Creating a great value proposition
  •          Claims vs. Proof
  •          Overcoming bandwidth and short attention spans

By the end of the presentation you will have a new frame through which to adjust your sponsorship campaign and improve your performance acquiring and renewing sponsors.
