March - Getting Event Sponsors

Planning a 2007 event? Now's the time to start lining up potential sponsors. Make a list of companies you want to ask and call to find out when they create their corporate donations budget. Some do throughout the year, others in the fall. Most will make the grant in 2007. If you have a particular big prospect, find someone who has an "in," such as a good client of that company. Ask that person to either make the request upon your behalf - or go with you.

Marketing Tip - Do your homework before asking for sponsorships.
