WHAT IS A “SPONSOR”

NATIONAL SPONSORS

There are only 3 National Sponsors.  The three national sponsors positions include;

– Lifestyle Sponsor
– Equipment Sponsor
– Retail Sponsor

Only 1 sponsor per category as described above is approved and promoted in app, in all emails, videos, events and marketing.  Some sponsors may choose to be the title sponsor in more then one country, however it is not required.

National Sponsors are included in every email banner and receive the added benefit of monthly product promotions, product reviews and direct links to product and sales pages.

National Sponsors participate in a sponsorship program.  Taking advantage of marketing budget and increasing exposure to a focused audience using our marketing teams as an extension of your own.  Only better, faster and cheaper.  Sponsorship is an investment into a marketing team in return for daily and weekly emails, videos and campaigns.  In return you get daily exposure for your brand.  We do all the work.  You get all the glory.  You also will receive all the Player, Parent and Coach contact information annually.

YUP… when we add contacts to our niche focus lists you benefit from our efforts.  As we grow our contacts, you grow your contacts and return on investment.

National Sponsors also participate in our monthly prize program, state winners and national winners prize programs.

What that means is, National sponsors provide TWELVE prize packages per country (in participation), plus ONE national prize package and ONE prize per state/province.

EXAMPLE:

A US National Sponsor would provide a total of 53 prize packs or products.

40 (hockey) states + 1 National + 12 monthly prizes

WHAT SORT OF PRIZES?  The types of prizes depend on the National Sponsor.

For example, Bardown Hockey, might want to provide 12 shirts, 40 hat shirt and shorts combos and 1 complete Bardown wardrobe overhaul prize pack.

A company like Warrior, Bauer, Nike, CCM, might like to coincide their prizes with new product launches like a new stick, glove helmet combo for national annual winner.  Whereas they may only offer a helmet or gloves or stick for our monthly prize program and one of the same for the state winners.

Retailers may offer a retail coupons or cashback bonus of sorts.  For example: twelve $25 gift cards, forty $100 gift cards and one lucky national winner $1000 in store gift card.

The options are endless.  All prizes are to be confirmed in contract and provided to 10000shotschallenge.com in advance for in video promotion and award to winners.  Prizes will be shipped directly to the winners by 10000shotschallenge.com

EMAIL SPONSOR

What the heck is an email sponsor.  Well for those that are not ready to commit to a larger marketing plan, we make available the level of Email Sponsor.  This is a chance to run one time emails.  Consider this your call up from the minors to the bigs for a one day contract.

It’s a hit or miss kind of opportunity.  You either light up the red light or you blow it and it’s back down to the minors until next time.

Good news is, if you hit a home run or light the red lamp, then you stand the most to gain.  All the sales are yours.  All the emails are yours.

This is a great sales booster to make quarterly targets.  It is also a fantastic and very inexpensive way to build your list without investing the time and money.  While we do not sell our list, we do make it available for promotion to our email sponsors.  With the right content and compelling offer, you stand a good chance to gain many of our list as your own for future marketing programs.

These are one off.  It is Pay-for-Play.  You write your content, you craft your promotion.  You supply the details, the links the whole playbook.  We review it like the GM of the team before you tell us to execute.  We will give your team pointers, best practices and even the cheat sheet to what works from experience.  In the end, we will send whatever you tell us to.  The results are all yours.

PRIZE SPONSOR

Some companies are not ready to dive in and sponsor programs with hard earned marketing dollars.  However they (your company and you) may just be interested in reaching our fast growing community to promote your brand or product.

One of the best ways to do that is being a prize sponsor.

Prize Sponsors are just what you think.  Companies submit prizes for review.  Our team reviews the products, records a video, creates a product specific video, blog post and email that focuses on the product donated by the prize sponsor.  Then…

WE GIVE IT AWAY!

Yes, we review your product, push it out to our community via email distribution lists, youtube, facebook, twitter, instagram and other social media programs (even the ones not yet created).  After that we make sure everybody gets a chance to WIN your product.

THREE WAYS TO BE A PRIZE SPONSOR

1. State & National Winner (Random Draw) – Every year we have shooters from around the world in different sports competing for their sports 10,000 Shots Top Shooter.  Well being the player with the most shots is cool, but its not about the quantity of shots, its the quality.  Everyone who completes 10,000 shots is entered into their state random prize draw.  We also have a national winner package.

2. Monthly Subscriber Challenges – Every month we have different prizes to give away to our subscribers.  You donate 12 products for review and giveaway, we do the rest. We review, we promote, we give it away to some lucky winner!

3. Special Challenge Sponsor – This one is special.  We work with our prize sponsors on a unique shot challenge to generate excitement and buzz.  It also creates a unique video trend for companies to use to market their products well beyond the challenge.  With the right challenge, crafted and managed with our teams help, your company gets exposure that goes viral for years to audiences you may never have been able to reach without the challenge.  Sponsors select the challenge, we run it, you provide the prizes, we help you select your winner and send the prize.

An example of the Special Challenge Sponsor for hockey would be “3 Bar Special” as in ping all three bars and in the net for a chance to win.

Another example for hockey is the “Nut Cracker”.  This one is cool and needs an assistant.  Set up your camera’s, we recommend 2 for best footage.  With your friend at the side of the net, they throw (or hang) a Walnut in the air and with you standing in the high slot you shoot the puck and pick it out of the air.  The bonus is if you actually crack the nut open with the puck.

Don’t like what we are shooting out there?!  Do you have a better idea or something you would like to propose to reach our community.  Just ask.  Contact Us and fire some shots at us.  We are pretty easy to work with as long as its a good idea, safe for our athletes, reputable brand and products and benefits our community and members.
