CarSponsors.com Sponsorships – Sponsorships range from full sponsorships, partial sponsorships, in-house sponsorships, perks and sometimes just coupons from sponsors. You should be aware of some potential costs and promotional efforts that could occur with your sponsorships; If you get a full sponsorship there is no other cost except for your time promoting your sponsor. Full sponsorships may require you to promote sponsors products or services on the internet before products are released. If you get a partial sponsorship there is no promotion of the sponsor required. If you want to take advantage of your partial sponsorship, then you will be paying for the discounted part itself. In some cases, if you ask us to get you a sponsored part, we may ask that you put a deposit down on that part before we contact the company to get your final sponsored price. This is to ensure that you are serious about buying that part before we spend our resources negotiating with the sponsor. To streamline our application and sponsorship process, we do not always manually review each application. We give everyone an opportunity to be sponsored.
CarSponsors.com In-House Sponsorships – We offer in-house cash sponsorships via our Sponsor Rep program, cash-back sponsorships for product installs, partial and full sponsorships, and sponsorship vouchers in addition to our sponsors sponsorships. CarSponsors.com in-house sponsorships may require you to promote and/or sell CarSponsors.com services, products or special promotions prior to receiving your cash and/or products. Cash sponsorships are equivalent to earning referral fees. This is accomplished by signing up at no cost to be a Sponsor Rep. When you refer a person who becomes a paid CarSponsors.com Member, you will be paid a referral fee.
Sponsor Reps earn high commissions (50/100%) for everyone they refer to CarSponsors.com. Sponsor Reps can choose to take either 50% in instant cash sponsorship for each membership referral (up to $500 per month or a total of $3,000 per year) OR Sponsor Reps can choose to apply 100% of the membership referral towards a product from one of their sponsors they have requested a full sponsorship from. The 100% option is capped at $3,000 in free products per calendar year. Our referral fee percentage/payout can change at any time. All cash payouts are paid via PayPal only and only when they are requested by you, we do not send notices. You can visit your earnings by logging into your dashboard and clicking on the Sponsor Rep link. You must be an active CS Member to receive your earned cash/products. Sponsorship accounts that have expired for more than 90 days will lose their earned cash/products. You will need to successfully complete all sponsorship guidelines as set forth by Carsponsors.com before receiving your sponsored products or cash. Sponsor Reps are not allowed to advertise on Google Adwords, Facebook or other search engines as the Official CarSponsors.com Site. This special program is meant to bring awareness to car enthusiasts through social media networking. If a member wants to advertise in a way that is not a standard social media networking, please contact Bob at CarSponsors.com for pre-approval.
CarSponsors.com 20% cash-back sponsorship program allows you to receive up to $500 total cash back during a one year membership for submitting install photos or videos for products that you purchased through your CarSponsors.com sponsors. Cash back amounts are determined by CarSponsors.com and are generally judged on photo or video quality and sponsor.
Sponsorship Vouchers are supplied to members as a way to help entice companies to sponsor. If your application approval includes sponsorship vouchers, you can offer them to automotive companies in exchange for free or discounted parts and services. Vouchers are a valuable tool for landing sponsorships as they offer companies free advertising on CarSponsors.com in exchange for them giving you a sponsored product. As long as the company is willing to trade, you get the sponsored part and they get free advertising up to the amount of the voucher. We do not guarantee that companies will accept them and there is no monetary value to sponsorship vouchers. Sponsorship vouchers expire when membership expires.
Companies, Retailers, Manufacturers, Sponsors, Affiliates, Partners – All of our featured sponsors offer special program sponsorships through CarSponsors.com but we can not and do not guarantee that they will uphold the agreement. Usually if the company is listed on our site as a sponsor they are actively sponsoring. Sponsors also have the right to cancel, not honor or change their sponsorships at any time for any reason. Regarding sponsors that are not part of CarSponsors.com: If you ask CarSponsors.com to negotiate a sponsorship from a company outside of our program, it’s possible that the sponsors you choose may not even have a sponsorship program or have no intentions to sponsor you or even deal with CarSponsors.com. We will do our best to get you sponsored but any form of sponsorship negotiations is a risk and are never guaranteed. We also refer to some sponsors as affiliate partners which means they have not agreed to offer sponsorships but instead have agreed to give CarSponsors.com a discount that we can pass on to you our client.
