Do You Have the Courage to be Goal Oriented with Finding Sponsors for Your Event?

 

This article is for people who are looking for sponsorship for the first time or raising their sponsorship levels to a new high. This information will assist you in meeting all your goals.

Abraham Lincoln said ?a goal properly set is halfway reached.? All goals for a sponsor for your show seem lofty at first. You may not have a lot of people around you to support the dream. Just understand that everyone has started at the bottom. You can also reach a goal that is properly set. Most people are afraid to ask for money. They are afraid it will be too much. If you are not sure how much to ask for you have to start by guessing. Then ask and see what the response is. Some companies will tell you that they only put half that amount into these types of campaigns. The will be great information for you. It?s free research! Set the sponsorship goal properly and get comfortable with the amount. If you are not comfortable with the amount, no matter how low it is, you won?t ask for it.

Write your sponsorship goals down and look at them daily. You would be surprised how much off course you can be when you do not do this. You get busy with other things. You do not work towards the goal because it is not top of the mind. You can begin to work on putting out fires instead of getting into the groove of getting the sponsors. Write it down and look at it daily. You can even put it on a wall that you will look at.

Make sure your sponsor goals do not overlap. I once had 2 different weight loss sponsors on the show. It was exciting for me, less so for the smaller sponsor. Make sure all sponsors have their own area that does not overlap and everyone will be a happy camper!

If you have courage you can do these things: write your goals, make sure they do not over lap and get an amount that works.

5 Ways to Weed out Your Business Mind

This blog post was inspired by a post on the Marc and Angel Hack Life Blog.

I love Hack Life blogs because you will find unusual shortcuts that are easy to learn. I find it hard to incorporate a short cut that takes 3 hours to learn and 60 days of practice to be of use to you. I recommend this blog as a regular read for Wright Place TV Viewers because you are busy, smart and always looking for a slight edge.

Weeding out your business mind means, getting rid of some of the projects you are working on. Frankly, they are keeping you from projects that could make you money or otherwise get your closer to your goals.

1. The organizing projects: Treat yourself to something nice. Have SOMEONE ELSE organize things for you so you can focus on making more money

2. Drop some events: Some of the things you are attending will not bring you closer to your customers, future customers or future business partners. They are just busy time to get you out of the office. Volunteering for a non- profit does not fall into this category. However, some of those ?networking? events you have committed to do.

3. Dump the newsletters: Seriously, if you have not read the ezine or printed newsletter, drop yourself from the list. Having a bunch of stuff you never got to or read is a drain on your mind power. At this point I never add a newsletter without dropping one I already get.

4. Limit the time: There are some things I work on and for some reason, never complete or get to work correctly. I work on them for a certain period of time and then I move on. Spending days on a non-essential item can really be a time and mind drain. I also like to time how long it takes me to do certain things so that when I delegate them, I know how long it should take someone else to do it for me. An excellent tool for this is the Action Machine

5. Admit it: Some of the things on your list are no longer a priority. At the time of this post, I am working on my biggest event of the year, the High Tea. This event happens in a few days and nothing else has priority. People who are requesting things have to wait until after the event. When priorities change, some things get dropped by the wayside. It?s fine, which is how it is supposed to be. You cannot keep adding things to your plate without taking others off. Everyone has limited time and not all opportunities can be taken advantage of 100 % of the time.

Give yourself a break!
