Both businesses and nonprofits regularly have sponsors for their organizations, events, fundraisers, and more. As such, recognizing them on their website is important.
This article will walk you through setting up Locable's Sponsor recognition tool including:
Creating the sponsor recognition embed
Adding sponsors to it
Adding the embed to your entire website, a single webpage or an event
You can use this tool to recognize sponsor logos as either a grid layout or a carousel (slider). Depending on the situation, you may also want to use a directory to recognize sponsors on a dedicated page.
Like our other Local Connections™ tools, this Sponsorship embed leverages the data in your CRM for Companies and Causes which means sponsors must be added to your CRM - as you can see below, you can add them directly as a sponsor or through a few other channels.
Creating Your Sponsor Embed
Start by clicking CRM > Sponsors then Add Sponsors to create your first embed tool.
Here you can add a few initial settings - all of these can be changed later if necessary
Name your embed - be clear and descriptive, if you create many of these it will help you stay organized
Optional - add a public Header label, alternatively, you can add information to the page wherever you embed this.
Choose between a static grid and a sliding carousel
Select how many items to show on the grid or carousel, a lower number will show larger logos - note, all logos will be used - this must be an even number
Paid accounts can hide Locable branding when embedding on 3rd party websites - Locable branding is hidden automatically on Locable-powered websites.
Add sponsors on the next step after saving
Managing Sponsors in your Embed
Once saved, you manage the sponsors that are included.
Add a Sponsor
Save settings to apply any changes
Note, Deleting this embed will remove it permanently and any page it's been installed on will show an error message - be sure to uninstall it first. You can always save it for later without it being used.
When you click Add a Sponsor you'll be able to add sponsors a few different ways.
Browse and add Companies & Causes that are already in your CRM one-by-one
You can search by name
Add Source to include that organization as a sponsor
You can also add many businesses at a time by using our Local Networks feature, click into that tab to browse the networks you've already defined
