If you're out there looking for sponsors, this should be the first book you read. Right from the beginning it provides direction for creating your plan of attack, then takes you step by step through the sales process, and demonstrates how to effectively service them for years to come. I was really pleased to find so many valuable tools; sample contracts, letters, proposal templates, and even impact questionnaires! All provided on a handy CD that comes with the book. Being a visual person, the well-prepared examples and case studies helped me relate ideas to my situation. Now I keep the book at arms reach as a reference guide. If all sponsorship seekers were to embrace the principles outlined in the book, our efforts would become more successful, while instilling a higher level of professionalism in what we do.
