How to Assess What to Sponsor in Your Marketing Mix

An increasingly common form of promotional activityeven at local and grassroots level is sponsorship.

Networking - a 20 minute job?

Posting comment's to an NiS member's wall

May I suggest that comments posted to someone's wall are good, as long as it is restricted and used only as a commendation or a general reference to encourage trust, confidence and business referrals between members.

All other communications should be sent as a direct NiS message AFTER you have "connected as friends" or by private email.

Regards etc, Arnie Fabius

What is sponsorship and why should a commercial organisation agree to sponsor a sporting event or club?

Simply put, it's the endorsement of a product or brand by an individual, team or event. A detailed definition comes from the International Chamber of Commerce. Sponsorship is:

'any commercial agreement where a sponsor contractually provides financing or other support, in order to establish an association between the sponsor's image, brands or products, and a sponsorship property (club, event or athlete/player), in return for the rights to promote this association and/or…

A start up to help the self employed


I'm trying to get a new web tool off the ground for self employed workers and wanted to know if there was any interest from members on how to work out monthly self employed taxes..

Modern Technology - Travelling by public transport!

On Tuesday 3rd August 2010 I am/was planning my trip to Slough to see a new client.

Environmentally friendly approach - is it worth it?

Rather than taking two cars, I will be travelling back from Slough in Berkshire, via Paddington to Wimbledon to meet another new client.

  1. Do I have to get off the train at the first Zone 6 station (West Drayton) to swipe my Oyster Card?
