If you are offering your sponsors social media exposure, allow your sponsor to “create a conversation with consumers” says destinationCRM.com.

Some sponsors may already have a  page on Facebook [TikTok, Twitter, etc.] for fans to Like. However, you can ask your social media network why they like or dislike your sponsor’s brand and if they have any ideas on how to improve your sponsor’s brand.

Tell them about your sponsor’s upcoming promotions and events. The up side to doing this is your social media network group will provide a more honest feedback with you verses the sponsor.  

In addition, prospective consumers and ex-consumers will give your sponsor a second chance or a first time try because people in your social media network actually knows You or are avid supporters of Your brand.
