    Hey all,

    I was wondering if someone could shed some light on how I go about getting sponsors. Maybe someone who already has them can help me out with the process and any other info i need to kno. Or even if its a good idea. My money is running out and my tailgate isnt looking to good this season. :(
    Any information of would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Honestly, you're not likely to find a sponsor unless someone in your tailgate gets their employer to sponsor and some how write it off.

    What is "unique" about your tailgate that you could offer a potential sponsor? Is it a big gathering or just a few friends hanging out having a good time? How would the sponsor be rewarded for their investment?

    Bottom line is its not easy to find corporate sponsorship.

    As Yankee said...you might want to reach out to an employer to see if they will help on an item...such as a tent, cooler, etc. Every little bit helps.

    Good luck!

    It is easier to get product than money from sponsors.

    i would rather get there products than money. like paintjobs, tires, banners, or food in exchange for space on my bus for their advertisement.
