Six Easy Steps To Better Fundraising With ScoreVision:
Simply looking for enough sponsorships to pay for new multimedia scoreboards? Looking to fund a revitalization of your athletics program? No matter whether your school’s goal is simple or complex, the team at ScoreVision can help you set a realistic goal that works for your unique situation.
Based on your fundraising goal, put together a basic outline of how to obtain it. Considering past fundraising successes, and how other schools in your area have increased revenue could be a great place to start. Once you have a basic idea of how you would like to move forward, get the pros at ScoreVision involved.
ScoreVision offers a team of Digital Media Sales (DMS) representatives that is available to help customers raise money by selling advertising inventory on the ScoreVision system to sponsors. ScoreVision multimedia displays incorporate unique digital ad sequencing technology into the scoreboard experience which increases fan engagement and awareness. Their systems can show both static ads and animated video ads on the LED scoreboards as well as provide exposure to sponsors on their Fan App.
It’s important to tailor your advertising options based on what your potential sponsors would be interested in. What does your community need? What opportunities get them excited? Making small changes to the tiers the ScoreVision team provides will go a long way towards setting you up for success.
Reach out to vendors that your school is already working with, or has done business with in the past. Pre-existing relationships are always a great place to start, and usually have a very high success rate. Don’t stop there! Reach out to businesses with ties to the school’s students, parents, and staff members, or other local businesses that are prominent in the area.
Delivering for sponsors on the promised benefits is important, but there are extra (optional) steps which can generate even more sponsorship revenue. Capitalizing on these additional, unexpected benefits can be done in several creative ways, including:
• Writing simple announcer scripts with promotional content
• Hosting sponsored theme nights at home games
• Having cheerleaders or band members pass out inexpensive branded items like sunglasses, tee shirts, hats, etc…
• Sending weekly email blasts to the school highlighting the sponsors and themes of upcoming games
• Combining sponsorships with the school or team website
