Comic conventions attract huge crowds of all ages and incomes. Las Cruces Comic Con is no different. Last year the estimated attendance was over 6,000 individuals. Last year was the first year EVER for Las Cruces Comic Con, or any type of pop culture convention for the city of Las Cruces. It was run completely from our personal savings. We are looking to make the convention bigger and better each year. In order to accomplish this goal we need sponsors. You can sponsor a celebrity, an event, or any part of the Con. Imagine the visibility your business will receive with advertisement such as “Your business name here presents Las Cruces Comic Con costume contest”. Another option is naming rights to any of the event rooms. There is also a plethora of cross-promotion opportunities like having ticket give-away contests at your business.
Las Cruces Comic Con has also started a scholarship for the Arts Department at New Mexico State University. This scholarship will begin in the fall semester this year. A portion of the overall profit from the convention will be donated to this scholarship. Las Cruces Comic Con will also be conducting a Pick-A-Prize raffle with the proceeds going to the scholarship. A donation to the Pick-A-Prize raffle will gain visibility for your business as well as giving back to the community. Definitely a win-win.
If sponsorship isn’t your thing, you can still help Las Cruces Comic Con and make money at the same time by selling tickets for the Con on your business website. We can provide you the code to place on your website that will track all ticket sales that originate from your website. You will then be paid a percentage of each ticket sale…just for having the code on your website! These tickets are popular and almost sell themselves. Easy, free, and profitable.
