In addition to managing Pages and Navigation, the Website section of Manage Team is where you manage Sponsorships.
Go to Manage Team > Website > Sponsors to manage your team sponsorship information.
Sponsorships are set up each season - this is where you define the sponsorship relationship with each business for the current season, and you’ll assign a sponsorship category to each sponsor.
You can easily manage your Sponsorships from one season to the next—you can select one or more sponsorships from the list, then copy those sponsors to another season or remove them from the current season. And once you've copied a sponsorship to a new season, you can edit the category assignment by clicking on the blue "Edit" button.
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).
The Sponsors tab is where you’ll find a list of all sponsors from all seasons. This is where you’ll define the businesses and organizations 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 business’s name, contact information, and logo (image formats only -- jpg, png, and gif).
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 (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, use the Sponsor Snippet in the footer of your page template to take a screenshot of a collection of sponsor logos.
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.
