There are many good opportunities to find sponsors for TTXGP racing teams - although the value to sponsors is clearly dependent on getting media coverage of the races there are other ideas for joint promotions that might interest potential sponsors. Of course some sectors of industry are more likely to be interested in sponsoring a TTXGP team than others.
Winning sponsorship takes time and energy. You cannot start too soon. The process is broadly divided into four different stages:
1) Desk research 2) Telephone calls 3) Written Proposals 4) Face to face negotiations
Then you have to deliver, monitor and ensure that your sponsors are kept happy.
N.B: OMX will be contacting most of the companies listed in the Southern Europe/Spain sections over the next few weeks to gauge their interest. We will report back here on the results of these conversations. If you contact any of the companies on the list it would be helpful to everyone if you contribute a short note about how you got on.
