It’s been an interesting 2 months since we started our search for sponsors to partner with our team. We took a unique approach by promoting ourselves through an outdoor advertising campaign on outdoor billboards around Calgary during October and November.
The idea? Well it was born during a team brainstorming session. We wanted to get the message out that we were first of all looking for sponsors, because the majority assumed we had already secured one (or more). And second, we wanted to approach the sponsors partnership differently than we had in the past. We looked seriously at what we could offer them. What community initiatives could we support on their behalf. What could we do for them in return for funding. Its a good thought for any teams looking for sponsors. Yes, you can wear their crests, buy their products and eat at their establishments – but what more can you offer.
