7. Sponsorships Agency Services

Process:

The “Sponsorships Agency” service is only active for players, teams, coaches and competitions in India as of May 2019.

This section will give you a clear idea on how we operate and how we can help you with sponsorships.

The process is fairly simple - After you have made an account on caanhub - you need to go on ’Sponsorships’ page.

(If you are already registered as a “PLAYER, TEAM, COACH” - you DO NOT need to create a new account - please use ‘Register New Competition/Event’ button from the menu to create profiles for as many competitions/events as you may wish. You can switch between your personal profile and your competition/event profile by using the button ‘Switch Profile.’)

On the ’Sponsorships’ page you can provide all details on what all you can offer to the sponsors in exchange of their sponsorship. These are called as deliverables.

You can also upload a PPT or deck of your competition/event on this page. You can e-mail your presentation to info@caanhub.com as well.

You can offer deliverables on 2 ends - Online and On Ground. Please pick and choose only those things you are absolutely sure you can offer.

Once that is done - We will call you and verify you.

If needed - we will send a representative on ground to meet you or see the venue in person. We can also do a Skype call and ask you to show us the venue.

Who can Apply-:

You might seek sponsorships for yourself as an individual, or on behalf of your team, or for your competition, tournament, event, screening, workshop, academy, venue, etc.

Barter Deals-:

We might get you a barter deal. Which literally means a Trade-in. Instead of cash, a sponsor might like to give you their goods or services. In exchange he might ask you for certain deliverables.

For example - A bottled water company might give you 1000 water bottles and in turn you can give them space to place 5 banners, 5 standees, posts on all social media and the tag of beverage partner.

Branding Material-:

This is highly subjective and case-to-case basis. All the branding material (Banners, Standees, signage) will be either provided by the sponsors or Caanhub.

In case materials can-not be provided, we will inform you and in that case the materials will have to be printed by you.

Responsibilities-:

* As someone receiving the sponsorship - its your utmost duty to fulfil each and every commitment that you have made to your sponsor. You confirm that you will absolutely ensure that you are going to keep all the promises and provide all deliverables.

* Its also your duty to submit proof and evidence of delivering on your promises. You have to submit photographs, videos, and other materials within 14 days of delivery date.

Audits, Checks & Penalties-:

* Please know that there can be announced or surprise checks from the sponsors team or Caanhub. You guarantee that you and your team will completely co-operate with sponsors audit team and answer all their questions as and when they have.

* In case you are not found to be in compliance or falling short of what was required of you, we can ask you to return full amount or partial amount. This is non negotiable.

* We can also enforce penalties legally and can force penalties on top of the full sponsorship amount that was given to you.

* We can take legal action if required and also ask you to pay for the legal fees.

Non Obligation-:

We do not guarantee that we will be able to get you a sponsor. Please understand, and know this clearly - We in no way commit that we will be able to get you a sponsor or sponsor your competition, workshop, event, team, or you an individual. We will try our level best to get one for you. Please plan your budgets and know that you are the one fully responsible for your expenses We do not charge you any fees/amount upfront for this service.

In such a case where we are not able to get a sponsor for you, you agree that you will not hold us responsible, sue or take any legal action against Ahsan Alliance Private Limited (owner – caanhub.com) or any of its affiliated or subsidiary entities. Including any entity now, in future or hereafter controlling, controlled by or under common control with Ahsan Alliance, including but not limited to, CAAN, CAANHUB.COM – the website and CAANHUB phone app, which is a property of Ahsan Alliance Private Limited.

Or against any of Ahsan Alliance Private Limited’s shareholders, officers, directors, agents, partners, sponsors, successors, representatives, employees and assigns.

Permissions-:

Our core mission is to financially empower athletes and competition organizers. For this purpose we get sponsors on board.

For this purpose we might need to share your information with them. We never share personally identifiable information – until and unless they might want to speak with you directly and get further details.

* When you register your competition on Caanhub.com - you give us the unconditional permission to represent you or your competition, workshop, academy, event or any other role or form you have enrolled as for sponsorships. You are giving us permission to pitch, negotiate and close deals on your behalf.

* You give us permission to ask for an inflated amount or a higher amount than what you have quoted. We have to do this so we can keep all services to our users free. The amount you need, we will never quote below that, but in order to generate some profits on the sales and keep a buffer for negotiations, we have to quote a slightly higher/inflated amount.

* You give us permission to advertise, market your event/competition – to promote and advertise.

* You also give us the permission to promote/advertise your profile and details online - on other social media channels, and through our advertising partners, and on ground where ever we deem necessary. This will primarily be done to promote you and your competition at no extra cost to you.

* You allow us to collect the Sponsorship amount from the sponsor on your behalf. We will then deduct our commission & other fees if any (example - agent fees) We will then remit the amount forward to the organisers bank account.

* In case the Sponsor decides to make the payment directly to you (The Organiser) You fully understand that you are liable to pay us the commission. This can be done by us issuing you an invoice for the same, and you can send a check to - “Ahsan Alliance Private Limited” or do a bank transfer. Please know that you are legally bound to pay our commission within 7 business days of receiving the funds.

CAANHUB Fees & Commission-:

Caanhub never charges any fees upfront. All the services are free. We will represent, pitch and negotiate at no cost to the user.

We will also give free consultancy service & might also create presentations for your event/competition to help you. All this is for free.

We do not sign a retainer either.

But when we close a sponsorship deal, there will be certain fees and commission that we will deduct.

There are 2 ways broadly in which we carry our sponsorships sales-:

1. In House Sales Team-:

We have an in house dedicated team of sales people who will work on your account. If we are able to get you a sponsorship deal through our in house team, we will charge a flat 20% commission on the total amount.

For example - If the sponsorship amount for your event from brand X has been closed for Rs. 10,000. We will keep Rs. 2,000 & transfer Rs. 8,000 to you.

2. Sales Agents, and Agencies-:

We work with multiple sales agents and agencies. They work on commission basis. This varies from agent to agent and agency to agency. In such deals, we will drop our commission to 15% - but we will deduct their commission/charges from the amount and then pay it forward to you. Usually it falls anywhere between 5% to 20% - Can be higher or lower. We will absolutely be able to present the invoice copy for the same.In such cases, the overall commission charged might go higher & may end up being around 35% as well. Please note: This is mostly only for high end events & competitions that seek very high investments.

For example - If the sponsorship amount for your event from brand X has been closed for Rs. 1,00,000. An outside agency worked on your account & charged a 15% commission. The Total Commission that will be deducted will be 30% of 1,00,000 = 30,000. (15% Caanhub & 15% Agency Commission)

We will keep Rs. 30,000 & transfer Rs. 70,000 to you.

3. Printing and Shipping Charges

If the sponsor wants us to print and ship the branding material - Again that amount will be deducted from the sponsorship amount.

BULK Sponsorships-:

We have sponsors who might not like to buy the whole package that you offer. But they might like to have some presence at your competition. You can generate some quick income by allowing these sponsors to place a couple of their branding material. Like a Banner, standee, and a couple of online posts on your social media pages. The amount you will receive, will depend on how many people attend your competition and how many you reach online. Usually the amount is between Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 80,000.

The Branding material in this case will be provided by CAAN. Its a super simple way of making some quick easy money.
