Owww...good question...I have been struggling with this idea as well. How much am I worth...and is that a conservative enough figure to put into a tight budget...and when I got to ask for funding from people...do I include what it would take to pay me!?
I am eager to hear responses on this question...Thanks Collin and Zeb for asking!
I`ve sent out a few sponsorship proposals, and have been denied...I realize I`m a small promotional outlet , We asked for 200,000 with 80,000 for pay role in the financial break down. Believe me, this is a conservative amount of money for a production company, don`t companies want concentrated brand awareness? Which is what gorides.com provides. Our features have turned non-car people into an enthusiast. Not to mention had direct influence on the performance products they bought for their cars.
With that said, sponsorship and advertising isn`t that different...IS IT?
I know one company that is in the same business we are. They charge 10,000 dollars for one month and their contract is 12 months for advertising. The math is easy to do.
I really need some advice on the subject
You know, I don`t seem to get an answer to anything I post...but that doesnt surprise me...My brother and I have always had to achieve everything alone, but giving up is not an option...
