About.

LORI A. MANNS

Hi there! I’m Lori A. Manns, a trailblazing business strategist and sales coach based in Atlanta, Georgia. Welcome to Sponsorship Sales Secrets. This is the premier platform where you will find information on how to secure corporate sponsors and partners, as well as master your sales.

You see, my background is in radio sales and marketing. I spent nearly 20 years of my professional career, working for top radio stations in Atlanta and Nashville, where I called on Fortune 500 corporations. I sold them advertising/media plans, managed marketing campaigns and sold event sponsorship packages. My clients were mostly C-Suite managers. Selling sponsorships was and still is very challenging, but a lot of fun.

When I became an entrepreneur in 2009, I didn’t immediately get corporations to work with me nor did I have sponsors right away. I had to build my own company brand and my relationships as an entrepreneur. I had to prove myself and establish trust and credibility as an entrepreneur, not a corporate professional. So I did just that. It took time and I’m glad I put in the effort.

Experience

SOME OF MY SPONSORS.

Here are just a few of the sponsors I have worked with as an entrepreneur.

You see, I realized that I had to go back to my sales roots and develop partnerships with corporations if I wanted to truly grow my business. Now I regularly work with corporations and local companies who partner with my business.

It was only after being asked by so many entrepreneurs, “how do you get sponsors?”, that I began to realize it was time for me to share the secrets. Shortly after, the Sponsorship Sales Secrets brand was born.

My goal is to share the knowledge and help entrepreneurs just like you to learn the trade “secrets” for working with sponsors.

Sales is both and art and science. Without sales you don’t have a business. If you’re in business, you’re a salesperson.

I teach soulful sales mastery and combine it with the art of sponsorship selling to help you reach your business goals.
