I know, it's a lot of questions, but I'm just clueless, and I want to know what you all have to say!
In the past, I have done sponsorship's... These sponsorship's proved to be ineffective..
I have been able to use these as tax write-off's which helped us in that aspect.. however, I don't think we gained 1 single client by these..
I simply tell the (potential) clients that we would be able to offer them some sort of partial sponsorship - where this has proven to be beneficial to both parties.. It helps our company put food on our tables and beer in our fridge
as well as give the client a good home to rest their website on..
