fotoShout was designed to create new sponsorship opportunities, and generate revenue. fotoShout does not draw down on the event budget, fotoShout increases income for associations, charities, trade-shows, and sporting events.
e.g. At an annual conference we completed a themed event. The sponsorship opportunity generated a $5,000 fee for the association, we received $2,400. The association generated $2,600. in positive revenue. For conference/trade-show producers in several states, a $5,000 to $10,000 fee is charged to engage the sponsorship opportunity. Our fee might range between $2,000 and $5,000. Thereby generating the event producer, a positive income of $3,000. to $6,000.
Does fotoShout place an extra financial burden on the current sponsors? NO!
- fotoShout opportunities attract new/additional sponsors.
- Sponsor spend thousands reaching attendees visually at the event, and prior to the event. fotoShout services are an addon opportunity, allowing sponsors to have an additional touch point during the event, and numerous times post event (with signed permission), at pennies per interaction.
- A company must justify the sponsorship/activations investments, demonstrate how the events benefited the company, while maintaining privacy standards, and keeping regulators happy. fotoShout drives guests to specific sites, uses permission based data collection, allowing for reports, and metrics to assist marketing directors in justifying their investment.
