The Global Gap and Sponsorship Willpower

I recently traveled to Sao Paulo, where I addressed a media and marketing conference and met with a number of brand marketers from Brazil’s largest companies. As happens whenever I travel to places away from North America or Western Europe, sponsorship practitioners I talk to bring up “how far behind” their country is compared to the “advanced sponsorship markets.”  more

Formula 1: A Sponsorship Example Not To Be Followed

Much has been written and said about Bernie Ecclestone, the brilliant, mercurial puppet master who pulls the strings of the Formula 1 international racing circuit. While I am not expert enough in the details of F1’s business to join the polarized debate over whether he is the best or worst thing to happen to the sport—although I’m sure the answer as it always is in these cases is somewhere in the middle—I do believe he has made a major misstep in the sponsorship arena.  more

Why Aren’t Corporate Sponsors Optimizing Search Terms?

Official corporate sponsors of the 2008 and 2010 Olympics failed to optimize social media opportunities by ignoring search engine optimization. Now the official corporate sponsors of the 2010 FIFA World Cup—including Adidas, Coca-Cola, Emirates and Hyundai/Kia—are missing the boat. All are failing to link their activation to online search terms such as “soccer world cup” and “world cup 2010.” There is a huge volume of traffic surrounding these terms and sponsors have the rights to use them. So why aren’t they optimizing? Why isn’t FIFA advising them to do so?  more
