How to Attract Sponsors to Your Golf Outing

How to Attract Sponsors to Your Golf Outing

July 22, 2016

The perfect golf event relies on numerous factors that all come together in synergy. Everything from registration to scheduling should be planned and set up accordingly. Furthermore, successful golf events often rely on assistance from major sponsors, which can be managed through Eventlify’s golf management software. Not only do sponsorships associate a familiar name to your outing, but they bring in revenue. Let’s look at some ways that you can attract sponsors to your event.

Contact Businesses That Will Benefit From the Sponsorship

Seek out companies that will benefit from the publicity as well as other aspects of the sponsorship. Often, part of the donation includes small gift certificate amounts for individuals to use at the business, which generally equates to a larger purchase once they are in the store. Furthermore, giving away items with the sponsor’s brand on it provides free advertising to all guests at the event.

Offer Sponsors Prominent Marketing Locations

Many events offer a varying range of sponsorship packages which companies are willing to pay serious money for in order to provide the opportunity for them to put their name on the tournament. Try to incorporate a multitude of options to draw in high-end sponsors and other supporters of your event. 

Don’t Ignore Small Contributors

It can be tempting to go to the largest companies in your city when searching for major sponsors, but give smaller businesses equal opportunities to donate. Often, these businesses are more community oriented and willing to donate to local charities. Furthermore, they can use charity sponsorship as a tax write-off, equating to a larger donation. 

Seek Out Businesses That are Connected

If you are hosting a charity golf event, many businesses may already have a connection to the group being highlighted and won’t hesitate to back the outing. For example, the Special Olympics are given donations by major corporations such as Wal-Mart and AT&T, making them more likely to sponsor the event if it is for that cause. 

Sponsorships are a major factor in many golf events and create a trickledown effect, ultimately drawing in more players and generating increased revenue. Through utilizing these four ways to attract sponsors to your event, you will be on the right track towards setting the tournament up for success. Eventlify’s inclusive software simplifies this process and enables users to easily manage sponsors. Contact us today to find out more information on attracting businesses to your event.
