Virtual Advertising as New Sponsorship Inventory and Activation Platform

Reading this month’s Partnership Activation newsletter (a must read for sports business professionals), I found the utilization of virtual advertising during in-game broadcasts by several NHL teams compelling. While in-game virtual advertising is not a new concept (baseball has been utilizing it for behind-the-plate advertising for 10+ years), it is becoming more prevalent amongst NHL teams in recent years.

“Really?!” No, “REALLY?!” How many times have I heard this in the past year and a half as it relates to the way my little smart phone is permanently glued to my hand? Let’s see… just about every family function I attend, a few times out with my girlfriends, on a handful of dates, hell, even running the Cleveland Half Marathon. I’m the person the new Microsoft Windows Phone 7 ad pokes fun at. And I love it. If you haven’t seen it, take the minute to check it out. It’s well worth it.  more

Stress-Testing Your Sponsorship: Are You Advancing a Movement or Marketing in Circles?

The “movement” is the thing for sponsorship heavy-hitters these days. Moving people to action—causing measurable behavior change—is the highly evolved, holy grail of return on sponsorship measurement. But instead of just counting coupons redeemed or pages “liked,” sponsors and properties are building real relationships, tracking long-term behaviors, and making changes in their businesses using the audiences, information and people-power they gather.  more
