How To Get A Sponsor

Zero Day 2:15 AM - 16 September, 2010
Been hearing Dj's tell me i need to get a sponsor and someone to sponsor me. Any of you guys have one and whats the best way to get one?
DJ Michael Basic 2:38 AM - 16 September, 2010
Be such a good DJ that it benefits someone to sponsor you. To do this, people need to have heard of you.

Huh, that's interesting, because all I've heard from people who know you is that you need to slow your roll and not try to get everything all at once.
eder 3:43 AM - 16 September, 2010
I've been told the more you practice in your bedroom, the more sponsorships roll in. I don't have any b/c my gear is set up in my living room...go figure.

I think Kotex would be a good sponsor.

i got some good advice a couple years ago

"Do NOT come to them, they will come to you"
trust me, they need you more than you need them, if that makes any sense :D

The key to getting a sponsorship is exposure, like having a website to let people know about you

most sponsorships come from a know someone basis,
BMX, skateboard, clothes sponsors all come from knowing somebody on the team and having them recommend you to the company go that route

slightly negative ghost rider

well in skateboarding atleast
BERTO 2:57 AM - 18 September, 2010
not really even the companies will admit it, most of them say in the FAQ "how to get sponsored" thats how most say, contests are a definite way to get noticed i agree with you there
sponsor me tapes is like giving a record producer a burned cd they just toss them

...Contests are a great way to earn a sponsorship, like DMC or ABDJ.
Other than that, if you're not spinning to at least 2500 people every weekend in a major city, don't even think about a sponsorship because you don't count.

Just got a clothing sponsor. Saw us do a few shows and came to us. Basically get free clothes (hats, shirts, hoodies), custom and theirs, few bucks as well.. Just have to wear it to meet and greats, specific shows (usually concerts or bigger events).
thats about it

Recently started a DJ Club at my high school to teach high school students how to DJ. A friend of mine who has been DJing his whole life was telling me that if i go on the NAMM app, that would put all DJ companies in my hands. I would like to get sponsored for my club. How do i go on doing this?

I’m trying to reel in sponsors for my brand too, I’m doing research and reading about it everywhere...

A very difficult question, especially at this time.

I have a music tech platform that connects hip hop and grime artists with DJs and producers called Tapes. Through Tapes we are going back to Atlanta for the A3C Festival in October and we are looking for sponsors too.

Any new suggestions will be welcome.
