This time last year, Spend Matters only had four sponsors. Now we have ten. And only two open spots remain -- one Lead Sponsorship and one Associate Sponsorship. The last time a Lead Sponsorship slot was available, it was taken before it hit the open market (we limit the number of Lead Sponsors to four at any one time ). This time, I suspect it will not last long. We've also managed to fill seven out of eight available Associate Sponsor slots in just over six months. In this post, I'm not going to give you the detailed reasons that sponsorship makes sense -- and why our sponsors see compelling returns from branding, channel development, media/analyst influence, overall web traffic and lead generation perspectives. But if you'd like to learn more about why our sponsors find Spend Matters so compelling compared with other online (or offline) opportunities, reach out to William Busch, our VP of Sales: wbusch (at) spendmatters (dot) com or by phone: 215-508-7414. He'll be happy to tell you more about these and other opportunities to leverage the Spend Matters brand, influence and reach.
Whether you've been considering this targeted investment for a while or recently realized that freezing your marketing spend is not a good strategy, I'd suggest moving quickly. While I'm not a gambling man, odds are that both spots will be taken by June, if not earlier.
