HardI'm in the process of sending a few sponsorship emails and I was wondering what would you include in that email or phone call? Does anyone have a previous sponsorship email they have sent or received that was well written and helped them get into contact with the right people? Template? Or what do you business owners want from your sponsored athletes? I want to include competition results, pics, videos, and marketing capabilities to show them why they would want to sponsor me.
Businesses want to sponsor athletes that uphold the same values as their business. You are on the right track with competition results, pics, videos, and marketing capabilities, but don't forget to tell them about yourself and link all your social media.
Make an "elevator pitch", this is a short synopsis of you and your unique capabilities. This should be about 30 seconds or a few sentences in length that you can recite anytime anywhere.
Also, don't get discouraged if you get turned down. Businesses get contacted all the time for sponsorships. Just work on your skiing and have fun progressing.
