The Canadian Imperial Business Network


What Is The Ambassador Sponsorship Program?

The Ambassador Sponsorship is the mid-level of sponsorship in the Excalibur Program with the Canadian Imperial Business Network. These are usually mid-sized businesses, franchises, or smaller corporations that are not necessarily interested in attending weekly meetings with small business owners, but may want the market of business owners and entrepreneurs from across our region. They may have a special offer that they want to publicize to the business community.

Ambassador SponsorThe Advantages Of Ambassador Sponsorship

Would you like to have influence and a voice to the business community of Calgary? The Canadian Imperial Business Network has over 500 meetings a year where over 350 business owners are getting together to share leads and referrals every month. The CIBN has more than 1000 first time visitors each year at their educational events put on by the Calgary Business Network. We have The Connector that goes out by the thousands to restaurants, waiting rooms and business clubs across the city. Are there strategic connections that you need in the business community?

The CIBN customizes the sponsorship for our Ambassador Sponsors. Ambassadors may have events that they want to have promoted to our network. They want entrance into the oil and gas market. They may desire face-to-face meetings with a particular market of people. They may want video promotions going out to the business network. We have several special perks for this level of sponsorship!

Ambassador Sponsorship Is For You!

Ambassador Sponsors enjoy all of the benefits offered to the Pillar Sponsorship level plus a whole lot more! How would you like to have positive third party, articles written about your business and then have those articles published in multiple locations? How would you like to have these articles posted online, and then re-posted on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and in blogs over and over again all year long? How would you like to have business people talking about you and your services right across the region? Those are just a few of the things that we would do for a Pillar Sponsor, but we do twice the work for an Ambassador Sponsor. More articles, more blogs, more commentary online and just way more interaction.

Ambassador Sponsors also have a beautiful banner created for them with their logo and their offering. This banner is displayed at all major CIBN tradeshows, and networking events around the city.

Marketing For Ambassador Sponsors

When you buy an add in a magazine someone has to buy the magazine, open it up to that page that you are on, and then sit still and read the article. That one piece can cost $2,500 or even $10,000 and the coverage is limited. Where does the magazine end up?

What if a wonderful story is written about you and then posted online on an active blog? This is not a static website where we hope and pray that someone comes by and clicks on it. This is an engaged audience where staff are being paid to post about you and your business, and then other staff are being paid to comment positively on that posting. This is not just one Twitter account with 300 people following. This is the combined efforts of multiple people consisting of staff, CIBN members, marketing personal from, other Sponsors and their staff and a whole lot more. One article can be posted and then reposted hundreds or even thousands of times a month. The overall engaged audience of the CIBN is over 300,000 in the Calgary region alone each month!
