Just FYISponsorHouse is one of the best sites I've ever signed up for. I originally signed up for the free account, which lets you submit up to 5 sponsorship applications. There are currently 99 sponsorship opportunities listed for my sports - cycling and running. I decided to upgrade to the Premium Athlete account on SponsorHouse, which costs $39.95 per year and lets you submit unlimited sponsorship requests. I have submitted 28 applications so far, 2 applications were rejected, 12 offers were made to me and I accepted 10 of those offers. I'm still waiting to hear back from the other 14 companies.
Not too shabby for a 44 year old soccer mom. Who would have thought anyone would want to sponsor me? But I don't think I'm the average soccer mom. I'm really enthusiastic about cycling, especially road biking, and have just begun to get into running. I am a freelance writer, so that is probably attracting more sponsor offers. The companies see that I have two active sports related blogs, Bike Diva and Charity Fitness Events, so they know they will get lots of write ups about their companies on my sites.
