Have you ever considered working toward getting a personal sponsor to help with your conference cost? Many bloggers don't, so I wouldn't be surprised if you never thought of it before. Do you think that your blog is too small, or your following too little to be taken seriously? What if I told you that I secured FOUR personal conference sponsors to fully cover THREE conferences and all within THREE MONTHS of starting to blog. It is true and I share my step by step process in my ebook, Personal Sponsorship: From Proposal to Partnership.
Personal Sponsorship: From Proposal to Partnership
When I announced my dream conference with the blogging world, I was quickly faced with realizing that many bloggers not only don't realize that brands would love to partner with bloggers, but they have no idea where to start. I realized that my experience with securing thousands of dollars in sponsorships isn't something that many bloggers understand how to do on their own. That is when I set to work on writing my detailed ebook, sharing not only step by step how to find your worth, how to identify the perfect partnership but also sharing some of my proposals and follow up emails that lead to partnerships.
There is nothing else on the market that is so transparent and easy to implement.
My husband asked me why I was sharing so many ‘secrets of my success' and I told him, because I really desire to see others succeed in personal sponsorships, as well.
I know that I made the right decision sharing these secrets, because this is what some have to say about their own experience from implementing the steps within my ebook:
“Confession time… I was a little bit scared about paying for my Focused Blogging Conference ticket before I had actually found any sponsors. But, knowing that I had no idea how to begin the process of finding a sponsor, and that once I purchased my ticket, I would have access to resources to help me figure it all out, I am SO GLAD that I took the plunge.
Let me tell you, Dollie Freeman's eBook Personal Sponsorship: From Proposal to Partnership, is the PERFECT resource for figuring out how to find sponsors, create the perfect proposal, and pitch your potential sponsors. She walks you through each step and, if you follow her guidelines, you will create your own perfect proposal – that benefits you and your sponsors.
I used her eBook, followed each step, and within a week had more than half my conference expenses covered by one sponsor. I'm still waiting to hear from another potential sponsor, but knowing that I have the right tools at my disposal, I'm confident that I'll be going to this conference with all my expenses paid.” – Tonia L from The Sunny Patch
“I was so excited to get my ticket to the Focused Blogging Conference. Then, Dollie shared her ebook with me about getting sponsors for the conference. It was something that wasn’t even on my radar. With her easy step by step guide, I was able to determine my worth and write an attractive proposal to potential sponsors. Well, I only had to send one out and got an immediate “YES”. We are currently negotiating the details but it looks like they will be sponsoring at least half of the conference! I’m so appreciative to Dollie and the wonderful resource she created for bloggers of all sizes.” Jodie @ Growing Book by Book
“Every time I researched how to procure a sponsor for a conference, the information I found was vague at best. But Dollie's eBook laid out EXACTLY what I need to do step-by-step. When I carefully followed the steps, I had an immediate “Yes!” from the sponsor I pitched. Dollie's eBook gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed to find the perfect business with which to partner. The sample pitches saved me a lot of time since I didn't have to struggle over the wording of my pitch or how to put together a sponsorship package. Any blogger who carefully follows the advice in the book CAN successfully procure a conference sponsorship! – MaryEllen at Imperfect Homemaker
