Sponsorships put your brand visuals in front of large audiences who haven’t heard of your business. Customers love brands that care about spreading positive messages and helping the community. Linking your business to a professional organization can draw lasting support and media attention.

Come up with a metric to measure your efforts, this can be a number of leads, new ideas to implement in your business, employee participation or a number of media impressions.
