SponsorHub was founded in 2011 by Chief Executive Bob Johnston. Within three months of its formation, it attracted investment by a wide range of investors including CloudBlue chairman Randy Altschule, Quotidian Venturies and many more. The $750,000 investment round was concluded successfully. In 2012, SponsorHub united with Eventbrite to provide a more complete service for people looking to sponsor events or event organizers who are looking for sponsors.
SponsorHub is unique among marketplace apps in that it serves the community of event organizers and producers and companies or individuals looking to sponsor them. Other marketplace apps don't serve this particular community. Meanwhile, other apps that serve this community do not bring it together in this way.
The app is fairly easy to use for users with some experience in the world of sponsorship. Events and other items up for potential sponsorship are searchable by geography, industry, and other features. Users can save search terms after their first search, saving time on future searches. The process of offering to sponsor an event is also pretty straightforward - requiring you to click the green button within the app name "Sponsor an Event" and then fill in the terms of your offer.
Registration for the free trial version of the app can be done quickly and easily. Click the "Create an Account" button in the upper right hand corner of the pricing page of the app and select the Free Membership option. You will be taken to a form where you have to fill in basic information such as your name, title, your company name and more. You will then be asked whether you are a sponsor or are looking for a sponsor. Once you accept the terms and conditions, your account will be created.
The application costs between $49.95 and $249.95 a month to use. The cost depends on what kind of package you want. The cheapest option allows you make make as many as five listings a month, allows you to search current listings and includes unlimited image and video uploads. The most expensive option includes all the same features, plus it allows up to 20 listings a month, a free telephone consultation, and more.
The application is great for event organizers. The usefulness for them will be immediately obvious and the app will be well worth the price. Public relations and advertising professionals and others may also find the app useful.
