That. Is. You. ?

First rule about sponsorship, you don't talk about sponsorship.

^^^True but also untrue. For that site you are REQUIRED to mention their site and who your sponsor is for promotional purposes. Other companies do not want you to disclose certain information, such as exact pricing and that sort of thing.

I am working on developing show vehicles. The decals are just who supports me. Their products are on/in my vehicle so I represent them. (If you are referring to the video, the current sponsor to promote was DecalKits.com, which specializes in graphics and decals. That is why the video showed the decals being applied, etc. Simple promotions.I have other sponsors but that was the one I was required to do at the time.)

you bust your *** for years draining your own money and getting respect in the sport before someone recognizes that with more support you could go to the next level and represent their company and yield a return from the exposure.


pretty much how it works 90% of the time.

^^^ Agreed. You have to spend money to make money, and/or you start small before going big. (I suppose is a good way to put it.)

public relations in general makes a fair point, in my opinion. Big part of it.

No. I tell my sponsors what I need to build a crazy JDM, Z06 killing 240 and they pay to overnight the parts from Japan. It is pretty str8.

haha, i used to list my mom as a sponsor when i raced bmx.

op, if you have to ask, you're doing it wrong. if you're doing a great job at whatever it is you're doing someone will notice. nobody likes an attention whore.

The air force sponsored me.

Told me they'd pay below minimum wage if I came to work for 60+hrs per week.

Seemed like a pretty sweet deal.

Exactly.

My friends 300zx got a sponsor from Southbend clutches and BW turbos after years of winning shows, dyno events, and attending multiple races.
