If you can think of a brand that sells to your audience already, you can get sponsored and close brand deals!
Lee Jackson, host of Trailblazer.fm
You've got a podcast, an email newsletter, or a blog...
You not only want your audience to enjoy and get value from your content. You also want to make money doing work you love.
Being a solopreneur is fun as long as you've got people coming to you to buy your products, subscribe to your SaaS, or invest in your services.
What if I told you that you could also get paid by brands who have the same audience as you? You're working hard to create stellar content. Brands want to be a part of that content and will pay top-dollar for it.
Imagine what you could do with an extra $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, or more in sponsorship revenue each month.
Following this proven process, you can already start speaking with brands in the next week - even if your biggest account has less than 1000 followers.
Below are two screenshots of just a few of the invoices I've sent to sponsors in the past months. After working through Get Your First Sponsor, you could be doing the same.
This course is designed for content creators. If you build your audience on social media, run virtual events, host a podcast, or have an email newsletter or blog, you can sell sponsorship packages.
This course has five modules with short, actionable videos and relevant templates that'll walk you step-by-step through the process of winning sponsorship deals. You'll also get a bonus module with templates to make getting your first brand deal easier.

Hi, I'm Jan Koch and I made over six figures in brand deals despite having less than 10k followers... if you're looking to learn from somebody who's walking the walk, look no further.
After selling my first sponsorship in 2015 and setting up long-term brand deals that make me four figures a month for years, it's time I start teaching how to make money working with brands you already love and use.
A little personal background about me:
My beautiful wife and I have one daughter and a silver labrador. In my spare time, I enjoy doing obstacle runs occasionally, researching on and investing in cryptocurrencies, or playing around in the smart home space.
And I have time for all of that because of the brand deals that give me 100% control over how I spend my time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will this course work for me? If there are companies who run ads, create content, or sell products to people in your audience, this course can get you in the position to get sponsored and close brand deals. If you take action on what you're learning, you can start pitching brands within a week after enrolling into this course.
How does this course work? I've been selling sponsorship packages for my events since 2015 and am currently recording the training videos for this course. The course launches on September 9th - until then, I am selling it at a discount for early-bird members. You also get a 1-hour coaching session with me if you enroll before Sep 9th.
I'm just hosting my first virtual event. Can I get sponsors with this course? Yes. You can get sponsors for your first ever virtual event if you follow the strategy taught in this course. After watching the training videos, you'll understand why companies want to sponsor first-time virtual events.
What types of content creators is this course for? As long as you have an engaged audience for your email newsletter or podcast or run virtual events, you can get sponsors with the strategy taught in this course. Companies want to be in front of your followers, podcast listeners, or virtual summit attendees.
What problems will this Get Your First Sponsor help me overcome? If you have no idea why a company would sponsor you or have no strategy on getting a paying sponsor, Get Your First Sponsor is for you. You'll learn how to create sponsor packages, approach the right companies, and sell your packages to them.
Will this course teach me how to sell? You will learn how to pitch and sell your sponsorship packages without sleazy sales tactics. However, this is not a full sales training - that would be a way bigger course in itself and dilute the focus on getting sponsors.
How long does it take me to see results after finishing Get Your First Sponsor? You can finish your sponsorship packages within 1-2 weeks after working through the course. Within 2-3 weeks, you can have the first conversations with sponsors.
How long is the course and what format is it in? Get Your First Sponsor is less than 2 hours long and is a video course with short, actionable lessons. You will also receive templates for contracts and messages in Google Docs and a website template for Elementor (WordPress).
Do you offer refunds? No refunds. For two reasons:
Reason 1: You can buy the best course in the world but you won't get results if you don't work through it. If you get stuck at any point, you can email me directly or leave a comment in the membership area for other members and myself to help you out.
Reason 2: I've been selling information products since 2015. Since then, I have seen my fair share of people jumping into my courses, downloading all materials, and then claiming refunds or chargebacks.
These people won't get anywhere in life because they don't know how to follow a process and do the work. I don't want people in this course who aren't serious about taking action and getting results.
