Detroit, I’m Giving Away a Website

Ongoing Website Sponsorship

Detroit Web Design

I ( accept submissions from individuals, groups, startups and non-profits who are doing something to move Detroit in the right direction. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been around for decades or if you’re just getting started. If you’re doing something for Detroit or its people, and you don’t have the funding for a modern web-presence to help expand your voice, please fill out the form below and tell me why I should choose your project.

Okay, so that’s how you shouldn’t do it. This is how you should: Create a sponsorship sales landing page, also the SocialBoosting has tools to boost your sales with the management of your views and likes of your social media platforms.

You will already have a page or more dedicated to showcasing your sponsors to your target market (your fans, donors, etc). That’s not what I’m talking about.

You want a page titled something like, “Are you interested in sponsoring [property]?” This may or may not be on your main, audience-oriented menu structure, but would certainly have a prominent link from your sponsor page and would be searchable from Google et al. This page would include the following elements.

Your sponsorship “family”
List your current significant sponsors. If you have 40 rats-and-mice sponsorships way down at the bottom, you may want to leave them off.

Your approach to sponsorship
Keep it brief, but talk about how you get to know your sponsors’ individual needs and create bespoke offers for them, including plenty of ideas for how they can leverage the sponsorship to meet their objectives. You may also want to include something about what it’s like to be a sponsor. Do you host sponsor networking functions or workshops? Do you report monthly? Use state-of-the-art project management tools, like collaborative workspace, Trello?


Some things we will look for in entries:

  • Project sustainability: I want to make sure your vision is one that’s going to last before I invest in it.
  • Impact: The greater the impact your project has, the better.
  • Focus: Your project should have a clear focus and concise presentation. Well-defined outcomes are key.
  • Community: The project I choose should foster a sense of community, and through achieving its goals, create a better Detroit.

The deadline is Friday June 5th. Rolling deadline.

The chosen entry will receive the following:

  • A modern, responsive website (WordPress CMS, blog page)
  • Free hosting for one year.

Please take your time in filling this out. The clearer you present your vision, the better. Be concise!
