Finding the right people to deal with at your target brand/sponsor is a critical yet sometimes difficult task. Wasting time and effort talking to people who don’t have the authority to make sponsorship purchase decisions is a common mistake.
There are many tools available that can provide contact information for the decision makers at your target brands. Some are paid services that give you access to large databases of contact information, and others such as LinkedIn can help you identify key decision makers at no cost. SponsorPitch also provides sponsorship contacts. You'll save time taking advantage of our ever-evolving contact database and account management service, here to help you find the right contacts.
In general, sponsorship decision makers tend to work for a brand's marketing department.
