Summary transcript for 1 March 2012 #AWCchat: getting sponsorships
Thanks to everyone who participated in our thirteenth #AWCChat on Twitter, on the topic of getting sponsorships.
Four questions were up for discussion:
1) What are some key aspects of a persuasive initial pitch to prospective sponsors for an event?
2) Real-world example: if AWC Headquarters had a webinar sponsor, we could make all AWC webinars free to members. How would a sponsor package for a webinar series be different than one for an event?
3) Let’s talk about getting personal sponsorship (to attend a conference, for example.) Any differences from event sponsorship?
4) What are some unique sponsor arrangements that sound appealing to you?
** On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 1 March chat on how to succeed in getting sponsorships.
We won’t have a chat on March 8, during the SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive) tech conference, so the next #awcchat is scheduled for 15 March 2012, on the topic of creating an editorial calendar for online content like blogs and Facebook.
Thanks for your support of the AWC (Association for Women in Communications) community.
