Hi! I’m Jessica Chinyelu and I founded The Sponsorship Lady, LLC to help influencers, entrepreneurs and nonprofits increase their sponsorship revenue in a systematic and reliable way. I’m the creator of #SponsoredandSecured, an 8 week online intensive that helps people secure funding for their events whether it be an in-person or virtual experience. Consider me the expert that will help you understand what makes you incredibly attractive to brands and how to land corporate sponsors.
Before I got into the world of corporate sponsorships, I thought they were solely for athletes and established non profits that hosted programs with thousands of people in attendance. I had no idea there was another world of booking the same (or more) money for things like intimate workshops, conferences, live events and virtual experiences. If you would’ve told me that the world existed years before, I probably would’ve let out a huge belly laugh.
Years ago, I decided to dive in as a complete newbie, not knowing anything besides what I Googled. Little did I know, I was doing so many things wrong. Leaving money on the table countless times. Not having the right contacts. No clue about my numbers. And don’t even mention negotiation!
Although I was hosting amazing sold out events, I was funding everything out of pocket and even used student loan money to host my first conference. Eventually, I figured out a formula and booked over six-figures in corporate sponsorships for my annual conference! I developed a pitching system, and it’s the gift that keeps on giving. My pitching method has only gotten sweeter with time.
Secured over 7 paid campaigns in less than 45 days.
Locked down $200,000 in sponsorship contract in less than 90 days.
Landed a brand partnership agent for a Motown Gospel recording artist
Helped clients acquire sponsorship contracts with Microsoft, Cricket Wireless, Toyota, Compassion International, Hallmark, Origin Bank and many more.
Racked up more than 6-figures in sponsorships for my conference (The Woman of Purpose Conference)
Successfully captured partnerships with The Container Store, Stella Rosa and Pottery Barn Kids for combined 6-figure campaigns.
