I’m new to the community so forgive me if this question has been asked already!
I manage an online community for sports coach UK called ConnectedCoaches that’s for coaches of all sports and backgrounds. We’ve been going for about a year now (released to public August 2015 but invite only 3
months before) and I’m just in the process of submitting a 4 year plan to secure funding for the community to continue past the project review point.
Central to that plan is securing a long term sponsor by the end of the four years… so I’m interested to see if anyone has any experience of attracting sponsorship for their community and if you would be willing to share
I’ve got a fairly comprehensive list of things we could offer a sponsor (without compromising the community) but I would also be interested to hear what kind of things you offered outside of the standard web banner adverts?
Given the potential and the vision we have for the community my hope is it would be a yearly 6 figure sponsorship…so if you know what kind of monthly website visitor stats I would need for that please do share! (BTW fully aware I could be deluded about this aspiration! J)
Look forward to reading any replies!
