Do you own a business?
Spirit Ad Sponsorships are a great, low-cost way for business owners, independent sales consultants, and others to promote their products and services. With Spirit Ad solutions, you can advertise online, via e-mail and in print. To build awareness, create goodwill, and generate sales use Sagepoint & Spirit Ad features to:
- Promote through family & friends
- Form an advertising co-op
- Sponsor community groups and causes
Promote through Family & Friends
The planning tools at www.sagepoint.com make it easy for anyone to feature a friend or family member's business. By checking the "Fundraise" box when creating event invitations or sign-ups, friends and family can easily add business info so it displays on the event view where people RSVP or sign-up and in related e-mail messages and automatic reminders.

Once created, the business info from a sponsored event can easily be included in other Sagepoint invites, sign-ups, schedules and group pages by pasting the "Fundraiser Code" from the original event into the "Fundraiser Code" box on the new events.

Form an Advertising Co-Op
Leverage the power of your community networks. Join together with a group of co-located or complimentary product or service providers to create a shared sponsor page - a Sagepoint fundraiser where each of you purchases a sponsorship listing. Copy the Ad widget code to everyone's websites to multiply exposure for the entire co-op. Include the Fundraiser Code on everyone's Sagepoint invites, sign-ups, schedules, and group pages when organizing activities and events for even more visibility.
Use the commissions Sagepoint sends your co-op to cover group costs, celebrate everyone's success or donate the funds to a community group or cause to build goodwill for the entire group.

The "Special Offer Pop-Up"

The "Logo Widget"
Shown to the left, the "Logo" widget is a vertical column of logos and business names with active URL links that can be added to just about any website. Clicking the logo takes visitors to the business' website.
Click on any of the example logos to visit the websites for those businesses.
For additional visibility, use the automatically generated printable view as a flyer that your friends, family and co-op members can use as leave behinds, post on bulletin boards or place in reception areas.
Here's an Example:
When new sponsors sign-up or existing sponsors change their information, coupons, or special offers, all the widgets and related* online views are automatically updated as soon as the "Organizer" clicks approve.
All this makes it easy for anyone to promote their business online with a Spirit Ad sponsorship or campaign.
