How 67 cents Turned Into 22K in less Than 6.7 Days

Did you know that you can be a 'small outfit,' and still maintain a competitive edge? Well, you can. And that's because when you secure a corporate sponsor, you become a mammoth in the marketplace.Ho

Who doesn't like a great story? Here's one about how I turned a sponsorship into a long-term partnership. In doing so, I easily converted 67 cents - the price of a stamp, paper, and ink, into a $22,000 a year partnership. But the best has yet to come; I'm going to show you how you can do the same.

Hello, Fran. This is Bryan from Progressive. I like what I read. Please call me. Tomorrow afternoon looks good.

That was my voicemail 'talking.' I was ready to meet Bryan that day. Why? Because I knew, absolutely knew ... I had another sponsor.

I thought, 'Since I put in the time and effort to secure a sponsor, why not go ahead and do a little more work and turn it into a long-term partnership?'

So, I set myself up with a cup of Lipton, hot, green tea and spent a few minutes that evening studying Progressive's corporate website - the one I printed three days earlier. Then I reviewed the research I took on Bryan and his market. Still sipping on my cup of tea, I skimmed over my notes about his competitors' sites and then tucked them neatly in my "Progressive" file.

When I met Bryan the next day. I addressed his needs and concerns using the 'research' I did for a reference. Our 26-minute conversation about sponsoring one of my programs, ended in an annual contract. The simple agreement included a cash stipend and complementary services for me, and customized promotional and brand awareness services for Progressive Insurance. But the real payoff is a predictable means of opportunities to attract loyal customers, extensive multi-media exposure, an enhanced community outreach, and sales for us both.

And that's how I turned a 67 cents into 22K in less than 6.7 days. It's also how I expect to turn Isuzu into a multi-year, $36,000 client. Just to name a 'two.' My job was to compellingly show Progressive Insurance 'what was in it for them.' It doing so, I uncovered how they were missing out on profits and then illustrated how I could deliver - or add to their 'bottom line. Progressive Insurance not only loved me for it - they paid me for it.

Did you know that you can be a 'small outfit,' and still maintain a competitive edge? Well, you can. And that's because when you secure a corporate sponsor, you become a mammoth in the marketplace. Today, 65% of my operations revenue now comes from my sponsors as the result of me mastering the process of converting my sponsorships into long-term partnerships.

As an entrepreneur, small organization, or solo-business owner, acquiring sponsors is critical to your business or organization's success. Ever since I vowed to teach others how to get sponsors, I made it my business to share everything I know so they would succeed. And succeed they did.

Those who took The How to Get Sponsors e-Course
are experiencing tremendous success. They easily secured sponsorships from:

Verizon Wireless

Wells Fargo


Professional Baseball


Wells Fargo








And more

Sponsorship for your business or event is a creative alternative to juggling finances. When you use the tools, templates, sample proposals, quarterly strategies, appeal letters, and marketing plan in the course, you can set yourself up for sensational sponsorship success, too.

Your most profitable approach is to put your sponsor first and foremost. Give your sponsors your very best. Take care of them .... and they will take care of you.

I hope you enjoyed the story. It's not difficult to get a sponsor. My easy and powerful course explains in detail how to execute a successful sponsorship campaign. Read more about The How to Get Sponsors e-Course
