Finding sponsors

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

What is the best way to find sponsors for a mod?
I am planning on building my own nas during the upcoming vacation, but I could use some sponsors

Can I just mail/call a curtain company or isn't that the best idea?

Thanks in advance,

-Rex

Usually when you go around asking for free stuff from companies they want to know how it will benefit them to do so.

In other words a "return on investment" - This is the key word(s) here.

Companies are not stupid they got to be successful by being smart investors. They will expect a nicely written paper explaining your plan, what you are gunna do that will separate you from all the other people asking for free stuff.

Sorry if I rained on your parade a little but a few years ago when I drag raced (Subaru WRX) I thought I too I would get sponsored and have them pay for repairs and new parts. Well I finally got in with a local (Portland OR) shop, But they asked me to do a crap load more than the parts were worth. I pretty much would have worked for them and would only have been payed in garage time and some minor upgrades.

Nah, you didn't rained down on my parade, I was expecting this a little bit. I was just wondering if any of you have any experience with getting sponsors for customs build.
and if so, how they managed to get those sponsors.
