    i am not sure if should be putting this as a complete lesson on this bases..
    i had a sponsorship opportunity last year in December as one of the Pageant who was a participant in Mrs. Universe New Zealand had approached me for the same and had exchanged the nail services for advertising my salon logo and contact details for advertising. the event took place in January 2021, last month. They had different stages of sponsorships like gold, silver and bronze asking for a gift hamper + $$ . and they had an option in the end of the list, if not able to sponsor that can go for sponsoring gift voucher presenting to the winners and your logo will only be display on the screen and no where else (which i agreed to) . It included 1 free ticket to attend the event and to personally give the vouchers to the winners. now i must say i performed everything as promised but the event was not organized that well. the appreciation certificates were given on stage like a teacher distributes the answer sheets to students. None of sponsors guessed who connected with what brand name as they said the names back to back and I was not comfortable with it at all. i was hoping to get some business exposure as they mentioned i will, but i guess i did not. There was not much audience and the once who were there, were the family and friends of the final participants. it was a weird experience to be honest. i am not expecting anything from this event anyways. and i do know i went wrong somewhere for sure to understand this sponsorship. i should have been more specific saying that i want the participants to do a post for me on their social media to spread the word, which i did not as my brains did not work at that time. The winner will be coming to redeem their voucher anyways and i will be taking that opportunity to make the most of it.
    what and where did i go wrong? i was very positive about this opportunity but it did not work for me. saying that means this is a good platform for nail tech to show off their work, isn’t it? or i choose the wrong platform?

      You did great and your learned lots – you definitely needed to set clearer expectations about what they would do to promote you, that’s the main thing. Did they breach the agreement? No, it sounds like there wasn’t one. So yes they might seem disorganised, but they did everything you got them to agree to, right? So next time you are more specific in what you get a sponsee to agree to 🙂
