Product Description


""The Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit" is a fascinating and insightful read that makes you see the world of sponsorships in a different light. Kim is at the forefront of understanding the formula for sponsorship success and her insights will give you a distinguishable advantage in the marketplace."
--Brian Gainor, Partnership Activation, www.partnershipactivation.com, @BrianGainor

"Entertaining and highly applicable to marketers and sponsorship professionals anywhere in the world, "The Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit" is packed with inspiring success stories, along with one or two train wrecks (so you know what NOT to do). It provides clear, concise and creative ways to navigate the sometimes treacherous waters of acquisition, internal buy-in, leverage and measurement--ultimately landing you on the beautiful shore of best-practice sponsorship. This book is a hands-on, must-read for any sponsor ready to advance to the next level."
--Josefine Hadell, Swedish Sponsorship Association, www.sefs.se

"This book is a delight. Kim has used all the experience she's gained over many years in the sponsorship business to provide a complete toolkit for anyone working in the industry--whether you are a sponsor, a sponsee or working in an agency. Kim's style is straight-talking and you'll find yourself laughing at her directness. Anyone who can't make their sponsorships more successful after reading this is in the wrong business. It's a must-read--buy it now."
--Karen Earl, Chairman, European Sponsorship Association, www.sponsorship.org

5.0 out of 5 stars The Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit 20 Sept. 2012
By Tripp Braden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm always asked by clients what one book I would read if I needed to know more about the world of corporate sponsorships. I always recommend The Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit by Kim Skildum-Reid to my clients. Many of my technology clients are just starting to explore this exciting marketing opportunity for their businesses. The book provides them a complete understanding of what they need to know before investing their marketing dollars into the sponsorship. This single book helps them understand how and why they should consider sponsorship and also why they shouldn't. This newest version of the book won't disappoint.

The best news is if they decide to move ahead, Kim provides the required tools to get you started and keep you moving with the least possible struggle. For my Managing Director and CEO clients it provides a great framework to help them get the best out of their marketing team's efforts. For many of them, it provides the required confidence and knowledge to better understand how sponsorship strategies are changing and how to do it right from the start. The book explains key concepts quickly and easily and provides worksheets they can use or work on with their marketing teams.

Can this book provide marketing people with what they need? For most marketing people today, they are almost always overworked and underappreciated. Why would I pick up a copy of The Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit? The book is a quick read and broken down into usable sections and could serve as a just in time tool for your sponsorship research. I keep a copy by my desk when I'm at work on different sponsorship programs. The tools and worksheets speed me on my way no matter what my current sponsorship challenges are.

For me the best part of the book is the preparation section. It walks you through how to evaluate if sponsorships are right for your brand. It's an invaluable overview to work through. If the book had no other section, this would be worth the price. Sponsorships can provide your brand something that so many other current marketing strategies promise but almost always under deliver: customer engagement and results.

I hope this review provides you with the information you need to decide if you could use The Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit by Kim Skildum-Reid. For me it's an easy investment decision.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Anyone in the Event Business! 28 Aug. 2012
By Debbi Grogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Once again Kim has written a book that is informative, creative and insightful! Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit is a book everyone in the event business should read. Kim's knowledge of sponsorships, brand building, and activation cannot be denied, but it's her sense of humor and the examples she uses that makes this book easily translated to real world application. As a sponsorship seeker, I have relied upon her books and blog to help me navigate through these difficult times, and this book will be used many times as I take my sponsorships and events to the next level.

5.0 out of 5 stars A toolkit anyone can use for brand promotion 30 Aug. 2012
By Tracey T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author of The Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit definitely has a passion for this topic! Her experience shows as you read in a stepwise process how to utilize sponsorhip in the most effective way. The toolkit was very thorough in not only walking you through the process of aquiring sponsorship, but great examples of her ideas along the way. This book also walks you through the value of sponsorship by allowing you to measure it. It is so important to find the right partner to market your brand, how to negotiate with that sponsor, and the legalities that surround the deal. The author stresses not only the importance of a great fit, but how to attain it. I also found the templates and tools made available easy to understand and very thorough. I definately recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than an MBA in Marketing! 15 Sept. 2012
By Angela Bushman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Skildum-Reid demonstrates once again why she is the premiere voice in the industry with this tome filled with practical, step-by-step information and tools for building brand love through sponsorship.

Having spent more than two decades in sponsorship and experiential marketing, I've crossed paths with hundreds of sponsors, properties and professionals, none with the depth and breadth and knowledge of Skildum-Reid. Her insights, clarity and straightforward delivery make this book a must-read for beginners and pros alike, not only in sponsorship, but in marketing in general.

Because sponsorship is the most integrated of all marketing platforms, you'll learn more from this book than you will in an MBA-level marketing course. Get schooled in objectives, infrastructure, strategy, leverage, negotiations, measurement, ambush prevention and literally everything you need to know to build your most successful sponsorship in this book, complete with questionnaires, worksheets and checklists. You'll want to keep this book on your desk and refer to it over and over!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Win-Win-Win! 5 Sept. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a business owner and event manager I deal with sponsorship often. This book provides great reminders, new information and wonderful checklists and forms that you can start using today. It's well thought out, broken up into nice chapter sizes and easy to read. I found myself nodding my head in agreement with the author more than once. The Corporate Sponsorship Toolkit is a recommended read for people who manage or create corporate sponsorships as it reviews the importance of brand, strategy, leverage, negotiating tactics and so much more. And it's all about creating a win-win-win. When everyone wins, it's a winning sponsorship! Now I have to go update my sponsorship packages...
