Presence Marketing Is Dead (Isn’t It?)

I thought we all agreed some years ago that the idea of a company showing up, being seen, putting its name on something and then counting eyeballs and impressions was a marketing concept whose time had come and gone, made obsolete by new technologies and no longer relevant in a world of consumers who demanded to be engaged. Well someone forgot to tell the many sports marketing experts I have seen quoted the past few days regarding Tiger Woods’ return to golf at The Masters. The consensus among this chattering class—many of them academics—is that Tiger’s return, in and of itself, will be a huge boon to the companies he still endorses because of the attention it will attract to him and, presumably, those marketers. Really?  more

The occasion was the school’s inaugural sports business conference. “The Business of Sports Sponsorships” panel—which featured Bank of America sponsorship chief Ray Bednar, Cleveland Indians SVP of sales and marketing Vic Gregovits and IMG College SVP Lawton Logan in addition to me—covered a lot of ground in our 75 minutes.  more

Eight More Things from Dallas and PCMA 2010

We had a great four days at the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) Annual Meeting this week. The event’s host city, Dallas, repeated its catchy “One More Thing” theme throughout the event. With my thanks to Dallas for a great job as host, here are eight more observations from PCMA—I promise at least seven of them have real-life applications, and I’ll let you decide about #8.  more

Does Selling Short-term Sponsorship Weaken Your Brand?

The NFL has been on a recent kick of signing short-term sponsorship deals in the quick-service restaurant category. Most recently, the league announced this week a deal lasting through March 1 making Papa John’s the official pizza sponsor of the NFL and Super Bowl XLIV.  This sponsorship is very similar to the league’s relationship last year with KFC, in which the fast-feeder was the official wing of the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl XLIII.  more

Add This Sponsorship Resolution to Your List: Measure Everything

Is a new-year’s-resolution post a tad predictable? Yep, and I’m embracing it, as you should embrace the idea of embedding predictability into your world in 2010.  Put measurement (and results-driven action) at the top of your 2010 To (Really) Do List and you will have a more prosperous new year and a more bankable future.  more

Sponsorship Research and Measurement

The topic of sponsorship research has been on my mind lately. Sponsorship research can help both properties and sponsors with their decision making. There are many applications for sponsorship research. It can be used to determine the fit between a property and a sponsor; it can be used by a sponsor to measure an audience’s response to its sponsorship and activation programs; it can be part of return on sponsorship or ROI exercise; a property can use information garnered from research to demonstrate to its sponsors some of the benefits of the partnership; and it can be used to track trends or changes related to the sponsorship. Some properties and sponsors have the luxury of hiring an outside research agency. However, a lot of properties and sponsors have never conducted any research, or the property or sponsor conducts its own research (which is preferable to not conducting any research). I would encourage sponsors and properties that don’t do sponsorship research to consider it, but there should be a clear purpose to the research, and the findings should be actionable, otherwise the results will be disappointing. Although the findings won’t be as specific, as a first step, a property or sponsor could consider using syndicated third-party research such as Scarborough or MediaMark (MRI).  more
