The Canadian Imperial Business Network


What Is The Pillar Sponsorship Program?

The Pillar Sponsorship Program is part of the Excalibur Project with the Canadian Imperial Business Network. It is the first level of sponsorship that small to medium sized businesses can participate in to establish themselves as Pillars in the network and position themselves in the business community.

Pillar SponsorshipThe Advantages Of Pillar Sponsorship

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 hard copy newspapers that go out by the thousands to restaurants, waiting rooms and business clubs across the city. We have become The Connector in the business community bringing warm leads and new strategic business alliances together. Would you like us to be looking for leads and warm referrals for you? If you have time to attend a weekly lunch meeting you can get a membership and come, but what if you are too busy to attend? Sponsorship may be a better answer for you!

Is your target market the business community of Calgary? Do you want to have more impact in the local market? Do you want your presence to be seen more online? Do you want business owners talking about your products and services? Are you looking for more business? Are you needing to get your story out to the marketplace?

Pillar Sponsorship Is For You!

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 can do for a Pillar Sponsor.

Marketing For Pillar 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!
