sponsorship does not equal free stuff
companies are looking for what you call "return of Investment"
"The most common question that we receive when it comes to sponsorship is "How do I get sponsored by your company?" If you ask this question, then what you should really be asking is "What is sponsorship?" Put briefly, sponsorship is an agreement between two parties whereas one company provides financial or in-kind (product) support to another individual or company in exchange for their marketing and promotional efforts. The key to this relationship, from the perspective of the sponsoring company, is the Return On Investment (ROI) a company will receive for its sponsorship support. In our industry, this is typically realized in the form of event attendance and media exposure (print, television and online). "
you need to act as the companies representative and do all the necessary rquirements they have.you need to be very knowledgable abou a companies products and be able to sell them to others. they will practically "own you" until you contract is done
and its not as easy as you think, its hard work
and may i add most companies dont look for stockish cars or even new to the game. you need at least be known in the industry b4 you can be considered.
in other words buy your own *ish and let companies know you are serious about a sponsorship and ready to take on the responsibilty
FYI i have been turned down by so many companies i have a folder of rejection letters and look at my car
so i said fuck it iam buying my own shit
