Some friends have mentioned some businesses may be interested in sponsoring my business. Our business is effectively web hosting but greatly simplifies things for people saving them lots of time.
In certain places (on the website somewhere in example) it would be appropriate/expected to display the sponsorship, other places would be considered inappropriate. The main segment of this question though it what would be the greatest value we could give the sponsor? We expect to grow at least moderately aggressive post launch. Secondly as a sponsor that obviously involves money and I am aware that sponsors don't give out chunk change. What would be an appropriate amount to ask if we encountered a willing sponsor though they inquired what we'd be interested in? Our goal is to make such a scenario as beneficial for both parties as possible.
