- Sponsorship Opportunties
We thank you for your interest in a Headsweats sponsorship. In order for your sponsorship to be considered we require that you follow the steps below:
1. About Headsweats Sponsorships
We look at our sponsorships as bringing another person into the Headsweats family and expect that before you even approach us that you already have a great passion for our products. On the same note, we like to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with an event or individual sponsorship. Please consider your willingness to commit to this type of relationship before applying.
Though we’d like to sponsor everyone that submits an application we can only do a set number of sponsorships per year. We are honored that you would consider Headsweats as a potential sponsor and will respond to your request within 45 days, if we are considering your sponsorship.
Because we are a growing company, our sponsorship budget is given as “in kind” product support rather than cash funds. Quite honestly, we think our products rank right up there with cash and we hope you agree.
2. Read our FAQs to See if You or Your Event Qualifies
First of all we want to thank you for your request! All sponsorship requests MUST go through the website or they will not be considered, as we receive too many to keep up with otherwise. Thank you in advance for your understanding and we look forward to seeing your applications!
Please allow 45 days for a response from our Sponsorship Team. We do receive a large volume of requests and it takes quite a bit of time to get through them. We do our best to get back to everyone in a timely manner, however, if you don’t get a response within 45 days we apologize, but we were unable to fulfill your request.
Feel free to email your follow-up questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will go directly to our Sponsorship Team. Please don’t email any earlier than 4 weeks, as we probably won’t be able to give you a solid answer. Please refrain from calling the Headsweats office, as our office staff will not be able to assist you. Thanks in advance for your understanding!
A 90 day lead time is appreciated and those who get their applications in early will be reviewed first.
We sponsor many kinds of events…triathlons, running, cycling, rowers, non-athletic, you name it. Events that are centered around a cause or a non-profit entity that is tied to our values of an active, healthy lifestyle is an ideal fit. If your event maintains a blog, Facebook and/or Twitter profile for the event, we want to see that you are actively updating it.
We look for the most visibility from our involvement as possible, particularly online. This includes social media interaction, text links, logos on websites, e-mail inclusion, printed inclusion, etc.
We typically sponsor professional athletes but will consider anyone who is reaching for their goals that appear to be a "good fit." More importantly we expect that you are a self-promoter. Having a website, blog, Facebook or Twitter profile is just a start and if you have one or all of these they should be updated at least weekly.
We expect you to keep us updated on what’s going on in your world. This includes sending us your calendar of races / events, 2 blogs for Headsweats website a year, 1 monthly post on Headsweats Facebook and/or Twitter, 2 hi-res photos for Headsweats to use at their discretion, testimonials for website and catalog use, Headsweats logo on your uniform and website and staying on Headsweats message when referring to brand. Basically we want you to be proud of being sponsored by Headsweats!
We look for a sponsorship to be impactful and lasting. We feel like those we sponsor will be part of the family. So what if you’re the most amazing trail runner to ever put on running shoes! Do you play nice with others? Are people excited to be around you? Do you leave the ego at home? Do you return e-mails and phone calls? This stuff matters to us.
