Do you or have you considered sponsoring a local athletic team in your area. Such as little league?

Have you ever sponsored any other local event to get your name out?

My father used to own a softball complex. We had two diamonds with a lower level concession (ball field level) then a upper deck with a walk in bar with seating. We had 8 teams a night playing (at least 80 ball players) and dozens of spectators, mostly all adults.

Ok, now to the point. We had large signs (4x8 with whatever you had designed on them) along the outfield fence. It looked real nice with the warning tracks and all but they did not do a good job at generating direct sales. They were great for name recognition though. I would imagine it would be about the same with little league. To tell you the truth I can't remember who sponsored my sons team last year (it was a trucking company). They had the name on the shirt (no phone number) and name on hat.

The one thing that might work is that the kids parents on your team might want to thank you by giving you the opportunity to bid their lawns (not that you save the parents any money they still pay their dues). Out of 10 parents you might get 1 or 2 to sign on (just a guess). I doubt it will get any business outside of the team itself. Unlike signs you only have spectators at one game seeing your message.

This is just my opinion and why I didn't offer to sponsor my sons team. In my situation I figured I would just drive the company truck to the games.

What's error is it saying? It seems you were able to post the door hangers just a few posts ago. Maybe it's too big?

Email me the file support@gophersoftware.com and I will get it on the forum to share with others.

Everytime i try to post it. it just goes back to the forum frontpage and nothing happend.

well heres what i was gonna type with my pic, but it kinda doesnt go w/o the pic


well i have been doing this for about 2 years now. And gonna do it again this year. Not only do i get good advertising, but i can order extra shirts and not have to do the 12 min order thing.

I advertise for my lil bros baseball team, basketball team, and football team. So my name and logo is getting seen year round.

And you cant beat a ad like this on the front page of the sports page. Not to mention a 12-0 season! We were in the paper twice a week for 2 months, maedgen's lawn care wins

The guys with the arrows next to them, one is my dad and the other is my brother.

I think it does that if the image is too big. Maybe can you make the file size smaller?
