The Partnership for Economic Development in Sullivan County recently revamped its Investor Program, the basis by which the organization raises private sector revenue while providing for marketing and general business development offerings to its membership.
“After more than two decades of a membership dues model, the organization seeks to maximize exposure, local market recognition, social media advertising tools, and direct messaging for our over 215 members,” said Marc Baez, President & CEO. “By providing a mix of investor options, members can now tailor their messaging dollars to a product(s) that best fits the needs of a given investor.”
These options include Investor, the entry level, followed by Executive Investor, Gold, Platinum and Landmark levels.
The Landmark Level, which is the highest level, provides all of the bells and whistles, including sponsorships of many Partnership events, feature story in the Business Edge , complimentary admission to all Partnership events and access to the Partnership’s growing member list . Investors can select certain options to better budget early on for specific events, advertising, sponsorship and other opportunities during the time of their initial membership or their annual investment renewal. Landmark investors enjoy premium positioning, prominent location on all communications mediums, inclusion in all major media outreach campaigns, direct access to potential prospects among many other benefits. While this simplifies the process for budgetary reasons, investors are open and encouraged to sponsor various opportunities a la carte if so desired. Partnership investors are local, regional, national and even international. They are big and small, mission and market driven.
At the very core of the Partnership’s mission is providing value and assistance to its investors to best maximize the success of all and by extension the greater Sullivan County business community as a whole. Look to a series of new projects forthcoming as well as added value opportunities in the coming year.
