CMS4Schools Touch makes it easy to help offset the cost of your app through our Sponsor Program. School/District-friendly businesses can show their love for your school/district and promote their businesses by advertising in your app. These businesses get great exposure to your school community by advertising on your app. They get an unobtrusive, clickable banner that shows their support for your school; and you get to hand-pick those businesses to include.

Here’s how the Sponsors program works:

  1. Create your Sponsor Prospect List - consider the following:
    1. Parent-owned businesses

      4. Orthodontists
      5. Pediatricians
      6. Party venues
      7. Sports facilities such as indoor soccer, climbing, trampoline parks
      8. Dance studios and gymnastics
    3. Companies your school does business with:
      1. Printing companies
      2. Janitorial services
      3. Lawn services
      4. Suppliers
      5. Food services/catering
    4. Businesses that advertise frequently:

Dear Contact Name:

As a business leader, you understand the power of targeted advertising. (School/District Name) has an exciting and unique opportunity to put your message directly in front of our teachers, students, and parents- right on their phones!

(School/District Name) has partnered with CMS4Schools Touch to provide the (School/District Name) app that is available for free in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store and is used daily by our students, teachers, and parents to stay current on the latest school news, check event calendars, post assignments and much more. When you sponsor our app, your investment helps offset the cost of providing this valuable tool. You’ll be helping us while helping your business grow!

As a sponsor, you get a clickable banner ad within our app. Your ad will feature your business logo and can be set up to link to your website, contact you via email, or even to open a video. Annual plans start as low as $XX/year and there are options to be an industry exclusive sponsor or a premier sponsor where yours would be the only ad on the app. There’s even an opportunity that would allow your business to send regular targeted sponsored notifications with your chosen message!

(Business Name) has been selected as a business we would be proud and honored to have represented in the (School/District Name) app. We hope you will consider this opportunity to show your support for (School/District Name). Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or to begin your sponsorship opportunity.
