1. Choose Your Sponsorship Package(s)
Virtual Player’s Pack Sponsor
Provide an Online Discount Code (% off or $ amount off) available for all registered players of the WGE to be redeemed on sponsor’s online retail store. Competitors will access their Virtual Players Pack through a hidden link on the PDGA website featuring buttons with the company’s logo or a graphic promo code on the page listed by sponsorship level, first come first serve. By clicking on the button, competitors will be directed to the sponsor’s landing page of choice. We expect 2,000+ players for the event this year and are assuming that at least 50% will take action on these discount promotions.
Donate item(s) for every Women’s Global Event (expect 60-80 events around the world) who register before March 22, 2018. Sponsor will ship all donations to PDGA Fulfillment Center to arrive by April 2, 2018 who will then ship to each individual event. Distribution of these donations to the players will be up to the Tournament Director.
Donate prizes (min. $50 retail value total) for winners and/or Top 3 in each full division (3+ players). The event anticipates offering 17 total divisions and with 1-3 prizes per division will come to 17 - 51 prizes total. Sponsors will cover shipping for the prizes to the individual winners with addresses provided by the WGE staff after the event.
Donate a product(s) for a Sweepstakes-style Giveaway. Sponsors would need to create a form on their website to collect email addresses from WGE participants/potential sweepstakes entrants providing all details to go along with their sweepstakes. Sweepstakes entry web page should be available 2 weeks before the event with a set deadline for announcing the giveaway after the WGE. (This is a great way to collect email addresses for future contact of interested customers).
Donate physical products or vouchers for a free item (min. $100 total value) on your website and the WGE staff will use this item for promotion through social media contests. Winners will be chosen and announced through the WGE social media pages. WGE Staff will collect the winner’s contact information, and sponsors will cover the shipping costs to the individual.
