Sponsorships are set up each season - this is where you define the sponsorship relationship with each business, organization and/or family for the current season, and you’ll assign a sponsorship category (usually a level) to each sponsor.
➧ Copy Sponsors To Your New Season
When you have returning sponsors, you can easily copy them into your new season.
Select the season from the left where the applicable sponsor resides.
Select one or more sponsorships from your list, then copy those sponsors to another season.
You can also Remove sponsorships from each season as needed.
If you need to update their category level for the new season, you can do this from the season you copied to by clicking on the blue Edit button.
➧ Re-Order Your Sponsors
To change the order your sponsors are displayed on your website, you click and drag using the up and down arrows as seen below.
» Note: After adding a Sponsorship, if you are wanting to move that sponsorship in the list, you may need to click off to another tab or season and then come back to actually be able to do the move.
➧ Add a New Sponsorship
To add a new sponsorship, click on the green Add Sponsorship button. From there, you’ll assign a sponsorship category, and then you’ll choose from a list of existing sponsors or set up a new sponsor
➞ See Add Sponsor for more on setting up a new sponsor.
The Sponsors tab is where you’ll find a list of all sponsors from all seasons. This is where you’ll initially create/define the businesses, organizations and/or families who will be sponsoring your team.
You can add new sponsors or edit existing sponsors from the Sponsors tab. This is where you can enter the name, contact information, and logo (image formats only -- jpg, png, and gif).
➧ Image Sizing
Images should display at the best size, but large images could be slow to load. It's best to resize them per our recommendations below before uploading, for an ideal result based on the requirements of the image processing library utilized:
- Pages with Sidebars - The ideal sizes for images for pages with sidebars should be no wider than 600 pixels for page content areas (best is 580px), and images for the sidebar should be no wider than 280 pixels.
- Full Width Pages - Full width page images can be as wide as 900 pixels (best is 880px).
➧ Add Sponsor
If you select to Add Sponsor, you’ll see a new dialogue box where you can add the sponsor’s information (contact info, URL, etc.), add the logo (image formats only -- jpg, png, and gif), and click Save.
The Categories tab is where you define your sponsorship categories. Many teams use terms such as Gold, Silver, Bronze; or Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4; etc.
To create a new sponsorship category, click on Add Category.
When you use the Sponsors Snippet, you’ll have the ability to control how the sponsors are displayed on your website, based on their categories.
Heat Sheet Banner Tab (Meet Maestro Users)
We have an easy way for you to get your sponsor logos onto the bottom of your Meet Maestro heat sheets. (only available for Meet Maestro users at this time)
① Use an image editing program to create a single image file that’s 700 pixels wide and no more than 150 pixels tall with your team sponsor logos.
>>Tip: If you do not have an editing program, add the Sponsor Snippet in the footer of one of your website pages (using Edit Page Template from the Welcome menu) and then take a screenshot of a collection of sponsor logos to save this as your single image.
② Upload the sponsor banner in SwimTopia: Manage Team > Website > Sponsors > Heat Sheet Banner > Choose File (choose your 700x150 image) > Save
③ Display the banner on your heat sheet in Meet Maestro: Gear Icon > Reports > Heat Sheet > Display Sponsors For > Choose your team
Once you’re ready to display your season’s sponsors on your website, you’ll use the Sponsor Snippet to control whether a logo is displayed and what size the logo will be for each category.
