Authenticity in Sponsorship: Does Keeping it Real Need A Reality Check?

This past Saturday night, my husband bet me 15 bucks to ask Anthony Bourdain whether his Chase Sapphire product integration deal cost him his soul. He needn't have made that bet. Tony launched into it within the first five minutes of his storytime/stand-up/Q+A concert Saturday night at The Chicago Theatre. (For those who don’t know his work, Anthony Bourdain is the chef/author/badboy foodie/world traveler who has a great show on Travel Channel called No Reservations emphasizes finding the authentic experience of a place.)  more

Festival Sponsors Get Creative With Activation

Festivals are going from strength to strength, especially in Europe. Just one indication of their prominence is the special limited edition jeans Diesel produced for Denmark’s Roskilde Festival.

How Social Media Is Impacting Sponsorship, Part 3

The opportunity presented by digital is huge in terms of access to new markets and audiences, deeper fan experiences through leveraging digital technologies and longer event access through distributing new content in fresh ways. Social media plus sponsorship gives people a reason to share brand messages. For example, Colgate’s Facebook application called Smiles languished for months, until Colgate recast the tool, offering donations each time users shared Smiles.

And on April 15, I will be in London for a similar session with Burson Marsteller on the topic.

Maximizing the Value of Social Media Sponsorship

As a property, incorporating sponsors into your social media presence is a logical way to enhance sponsorship value. However, similar to the old adage that you can’t put the horse before the cart, you cannot successfully incorporate sponsors into social media without a well-established social media presence.  more

Project Runway is No “Loser” When it Comes to TV Sponsorships

Last week, my colleague Carrie posted on Ziploc’s brand integration into The Biggest Loser. I shared her confusion at how the show or the brand would think the final cut was acceptable. As Carrie put it so well, “I actually debated whether the feature should be considered branded entertainment, product placement or brand integration.
