Sportlio is a professional social media tool, that helps athletes show their athletic career from every aspect – results, pictures, videos, articles, sponsors and use of other social media webpages. This gives an overview of athlete’s activities and makes it easier to support the athletes. This information is both interesting to fans and useful to business owners.
To get sponsors you have to be active and show yourself. If you reach the level where your results are great and people start taking notice of you, then things will go a lot easier. Until then, you have to work harder for sponsorship deals, but it is still doable! You just have to remember that companies are equally interested in your results and how active you are showing yourself. What this means is you post training videos to Youtube (you can add sponsor logos at the end of a clip), keep a blog (you can add sponsor logos at the end of a post) and you are an active user of other social media websites.
Now, do you see how Sportlio can help you? In Sportlio you can do exactly what companies want you to do – show their products, logos and other related information in exchange for sponsorship. You see advertisements practically everywhere you go online (unless you use AdBlock) and new ways to reach potential customers are continually searched. Why not let companies pay for putting their logo in your profile?
How to use Sportlio to get sponsors!
So, here is how using Sportlio can get you sponsors:
- create profile for FREE and add necessary information + results
- start building your fanbase, this gives you a constant number of profile views every month
- if you think you have enough profile views, contact companies
- start from your hometown and write to/call your local businesses
- ask for free products/services in return for adding their logo to your profile and occasionally posting information about free products/services
- offer them as much as you can, i.e. logo on your t-shirt and at the end of training videos
- be visible around the year and not only during the competition season
Here is a great example of an athlete, who uses his profile for advertising sponsor products:
To become interesting enough for companies, you must have a decent number of profile views. Every month we send users statistics about profile views + time spent on profile. Also, we make public top 10 lists in our blog at the beginning of every month (here is a summary of the most popular athletes in 2015).
If you have enough profile views, you can start contacting companies and selling your profile for free products or services. Don´t ask for money, because it is easier for companies to give products/services than money for numerous reasons we are not going to explain. If you are planning on going to a training camp, perhaps then you could ask for financial support.
And because Sportlio is free, it does not cost you anything!
