6 Reasons to Support us
1. Great Publicity
Even if it’s only for a few hours, putting the spotlight on your business can have some major long-term benefits. You’ll gain significant exposure over the most important meal of the day and can get your brand in front of an influential audience in this community.
2. networking galore
Building solid relationships is the key to opening new doors for any business. The more quality contacts you have, the more opportunities will come your way. If you’re looking to quickly expand your network and gain meaningful business relationships, sponsoring our Speakers Breakfast is a great way to do so. We offer a planned networking format that requires very little effort and energy on your part, and most contacts will come right to you.
3. improved reputation
Reputation management is serious business these days, especially when you consider how quickly a brand’s reputation can spike or plummet because of online reviews and social media. A positive reputation is a fundamental component of generating initial leads and is integral to long-term sustainability. Sponsoring our Speaker’s Breakfast is great because it shows that your business has a legitimate interest in local causes and that you want to contribute to the enrichment of this community.
4. stronger brand equity
An improved reputation almost always results in your business being perceived as more credible and trustworthy. In turn, your demographic is more likely to associate your brand name with something positive, which automatically strengthens your brand equity. This is important because it goes way beyond the day that you sponsor a community event and can have a long-lasting effect. In some cases, this can be the catalyst for increased customers and clients for years down the road.
5. it's affordable
While it’s true that this type of sponsorship comes at a cost, it’s pretty minimal when you compare it to many other forms of local marketing. For instance, print and radio ads can greatly exceed the cost of sponsorship and may only yield a fraction of the results.
Philanthropy helps build relationships with clients and potential clients. It helps build and support your brand. It promotes employee engagement. And let’s face it: good corporate citizens want to do business with others who share their values. The Community Foundation of Mississauga is managing endowed funds in excess of $22 million, and cumulative grants back to the community, 360 degrees, are more than $12 million.
