Why Content Matters

Competition for content is skyrocketing among sponsors, rightsholders, broadcasters and new media. Reasons include: cheap bandwidth, the proliferation of tablets and smartphones, new broadcast forms such as IPTV and web TV, new distribution outlets—Google and Apple are bringing their own TV subsidiaries onto the market—and the need for content to populate owned media. more

Sponsorship Activation Meets Gamification

Combine geolocation, image recognition and augmented reality technologies with smartphone adoption—31 percent of mobile users have one, according to eMarketer—add in massive gaming participation (183 million Americans report playing a game for an hour per day, according to author Jane McGonigal), and it is no surprise that we are seeing more sponsors use games to activate their sponsorships.  more

Should Art Have Brand Attributes?

According to this article from the Vancouver Sun, Absolut is holding a $120,000 competition for an artist to develop a work of art or project for the city of Vancouver. The effort seems like a natural fit, considering Absolut’s history of collaboration with artists. Still the program highlights the continuing tension between artistic freedom and corporate patronage. As the Sun article points out, the artists’ proposals are expected to reflect Absolut’s brand values and to incorporate Absolut in some meaningful—though not overtly commercial—way.  more

Social Media and Sponsorship Join Forces for Marquette Basketball

This past week, Marquette University started posting from a Pepsi-sponsored Twitter account focusing on the home opener for its men’s basketball team. This development is unique in that very few (successful) forays have been made into the world of sponsored social media.

There have been no tweets or links posted regarding Pepsi or the sponsorship and the posts have largely focused on information aimed at building excitement around opening night.
