FIFA World Cup 2018 – How Budweiser Overcame The Bleak Commercial Opportunities That existed in Russia

July 4th, 2018 Posted by

It’s June/July 2018 and the world is going Football (Soccer for some of my Australian counterparts) mad about the FIFA World Cup in Russia. There has been a heap written and said about how different this world cup will be for commercial partners given the limited ability to capitalise on a ‘commercial culture’ like Russia’s. This is where I have been blown away with some of the activation, content, and advertising executed by Budweiser (an official FIFA partner). I think can all take something out of their innovative approach. (more…)

Inside Sponsorship – Paralympics New Zealand – Ian Sargeant – Ep 54 – Feb 18

February 28th, 2018 Posted by

How many of you, who rely so heavily on traditional inventory, things such as signage, uniform branding, home game activations, tickets, and hospitality, would struggle if you could no longer offer them to your sponsors?

 

What about if you are a rights holder who enjoys long and regular periods of sustained awareness and engagement, like an annual twenty plus week season? Would your job be tougher if you couldn’t rely on that high-profile regularity?

 

How would you even approach your job without those things?

 

While they are interesting hypothetical questions for most of you, they are the reality for Ian Sargeant, Commercial Manager at Paralympics New Zealand. In this episode, you’ll learn about how Ian and the organisation deliver a highly successful commercial program, without the plethora of traditional benefits most rights holders boast, as we go inside sponsorship at Paralympics New Zealand.

You can learn more about Paralympics New Zealand, connect with Ian on LinkedIn, or email him directly on isargeant at paralympics.org.nz.

You want more? Lucky that our MD, Mark Thompson, also joins us to discuss a very interesting topic, and not one that is talked about a lot, that being the sponsorship landscape in terms of understanding third-party influencers who could be vital to success.

 

Enjoy.

Inside Sponsorship – Roberta Vigilance – Event Sponsorship – Episode 52 – January 2018

January 25th, 2018 Posted by

Events, either stand-alone or as part of a rights holder, such as team community days or end of season functions, bring people together where they are highly engaged and usually with really positive attitudes.

For rights holders, there is a finite amount of time to deliver the event and, in turn, deliver for sponsors. There’s not a lot of wriggle room if something goes wrong. Still, for sponsors, events can be highly attractive because of a large gathering of highly engaged people from their target audience.

Whether you are a rights holder or a brand, all of this presents not just a big opportunity, but also a unique set of challenges in executing sponsorship.

Someone who is well placed to discuss the unique challenges, how to navigate them, and enjoy success, is Roberta Vigilance. Since 1997, Roberta, through her event planning company, Vigilance Style & Grace, has consulted and taught how to plan sponsored events and secure sponsors from local through to corporate brands and Roberta joins us on the show to discuss all things event sponsorship.

If you would like to connect with Roberta, you can do so on LinkedIn, Twitter or visit www.eventsandsponsors.com

Mark Thompson, our MD, also joins us to discuss his latest blog – Sponsorship Reporting in a Bad Year – How to Tell a Good Story in Hard Times

Enjoy.

Five Things I’ve Learned From The Big Bash League

January 4th, 2018 Posted by

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past month, in Australia at least, you will have heard about the Big Bash League. Australia’s premier T20 Cricket Competition has taken off like a rocket and is now in its seventh season (for the male players). This hugely popular format of an ancient sport (I mean that in a positive way) has been taken to the next level by Cricket Australia and I can’t help but sit back in awe and marvel at some of the learnings we can all take away from the BBL.

“Snapchat isn’t about capturing the traditional Kodak moment. It’s about communicating with the full range of human emotion — not just what appears to be pretty or perfect.” Those are the first words on the Snapchat blog, written by Evan Spiegel, Snapchat CEO and co-founder. That was back in 2012 when Snapchat only worked on iOS devices and users could only send photos.
