New Developments in Sponsorship and Social Media Come Fast and Furious

Although it was only last December that I presented an IEG Webinar on the topic of sponsorship and social media, preparing for this Thursday’s live webinar on the topic illuminated how quickly social media is changing and how deeply these changes are affecting sponsorship. Indeed, rather than update the presentation, I scrapped it and started over.  more

Mommy Tested, Mommy Approved?

As a mom of a toddler and a soon-to-be mom of two (22 days to go but who’s counting?), my attention has turned lately, not surprisingly, to “mommy marketing.” Companies such as Procter & Gamble are all over this trend for brands including Pampers, Tide and Bounce.

So why aren’t they optimizing? Why isn’t FIFA advising them to do so?  more
