We receive requests for sponsorship quite a bit and are sometimes appalled at the lack of ability in writing these letters.

if you want to be noticed try and stand out, no offence to the posters above but this really doesn't cut it for me,

make a page on your website showing as much information as possible.

give website hits and listener stats and what can be done for the host in terms of what's on offer in return,

i have seen some of people create media packs and sent them in which do show that someone has taken a little time and interest in getting a sponsor and also shown the the host that they are capable of putting a little effort in.

make the media pack rich in content and show them you are cut above the rest if you want to be noticed.

good luck..

Good advice,

Make sure you include things in a nice media pack (pdf or word document)..

Introduction (What your stations about, your statement and background)
Why you want to sponsor or get sponsored. Explain.
Show statistics, as many images and figures as possible.
Explain how you found the company you want to sponsor or who want to sponsor you. (So it doesnt look like your just emailing every company you find)
List references, you you know anybody at the company?
Conclusion & Thankyous.Hopefully thats enough, thats what i do when a potential advertiser requests prices. I dont give them prices, i give them info ;)

Dear , ( company name )

and come back again and again.we play music from the 80s 90s and today.
We have a website forums and listed on other radio directories aswell.
Now the bigger we get the more money we need to keep going server costs website,royalties so on.

now onto what i can offer you , with this deal i hope to maximise
your site traffic with advertising on my main homepage and radio shoutcasts.
Also if possible it would be great if i could interview you on live radio

I think James has most of it covered and it would not be fair for me to post other peoples requests and docs.

a pdf file or a web page with as much information as you can manage.

Website history
web stats broken down by country.
pictures of advertising/sponsorship positions of your website that will be available to the sponsor.

it really is best to build a station before looking sponsorship from the start as its not worth a lot of peoples time if your only asking for a 10 slot server for your listeners as it isnt a big enough audience for the host to get any return from.

I hope this helps.

I think if it helps others to know what sponsors need i think its fair myself i might be wrong..But we here to help not work it out for yourself??
Like what software you use well I use one that can cue and play as i demand..But unfair to say what?? work it out for yourself m8..We here to say what we do not tell you what we do?? And tell how to do it.. or why here?? To get to know what we gotta do and help not guess what I do.. or this not a help forum ? Just saying that wont cut ... no good show us what will :)

Im sorry but things are sent to us in confidence and it would not be appropriate for me to post them.

It was only a post to try and help you arm yourself with information in your quest for sponsorship and not to tell you to work it out for yourself.
