Are you looking for a sponsor but are finding it harder to get funding because sponsors are cutting budgets and “spending smarter”? If so, SponsorPitch.com is your answer. Properties are fighting harder for sponsorships and looking for every edge they can get in reaching decision-makers. Luckily for us SponsorPitch is a company that provides a solution for both of these interests and takes on even greater importance, given the uncertain economic environment.
This article talks about how NASCAR is taking a huge hit right now because many major sponsors are backing out on funding. As fans continue to go crazy at the races, NASCAR executives are having a hard time finding something to cheer about.
It is nice to know this world is filled with guys like Kris Mathis, Founder of SponsorPitch, who was able to come up with a great solution for this problem.
Check out this video interview I recently did with Kris as he explains more about why he started SponsorPitch, how you can benefit from joining, and what you need to do to get started:
Chris founded SponsorPitch based on his experience within an agency searching for new sponsorship opportunities for their clients, but looking for a more efficient resource for finding, filtering and evaluating them. SponsorPitch’s virtual pitch platform allows marketers to evaluate opportunities in a smarter, efficient, and more comprehensive way.
