Maximise Sponsorship Income with Thriving Sponsorship Seekers

A challenge exists for associations in receiving ongoing funding from sponsorship in today's competitive environment. Many associations are now seeing a slight decline in membership and/or attendance, highlighting the fact that sponsorship is even more important than previously.

The key to obtaining sponsorship and new sources of revenue is finding the right organisation to become partners with, and using this partnership to find a constant revenue stream. The right partners can assist members in furthering their careers within the industry.

As the current Not-For-Profit environment moves towards an IT future it is important not to lose sight of your association's marketing and advertising. Associations are moving towards a complete CRM system to improve their website functionality while streamlining and automating day to day activities.

In today's environment Not-For-Profit organisations and associations are driven not by the need to make a profit but to expand, change and stay relevant. The need to stay relevant and evolve with the times is a huge factor as most organisations have unpaid staff and some may have both paid and volunteer staff. Not-For Profits more than ever have a need for efficient workflows and up to date technologies that can be utilised, allowing better collaboration between staff, sponsors and their members.
