What advice would you give to a new business that wants to gain and grow its paid sponsorships?
Imagine your product at its very best iteration, envision and record any of the sub-industries, trade groups, professional organizations, or consumer services-based companies that would appreciate your work. Of those, which are the top three most populous groups? Who are they currently working with? What do you need to enter those circles with confidence? Record these ideas and then place them in order of priority and also on a hypothetical timeline. Now, add-in the localized and community groups which would benefit from your work. Create a list of them and determine who inside those organizations you should contact when ready. Select the top three and determine why they would want to work with you.
