The Sponsorship Landscape – Understanding 3rd party Influencers is Vital to Success

February 15th, 2018 Posted by

From the outside, the sponsorship landscape looks pretty simple: There are rights holders (those looking for sponsors) and there are brands (those looking to sponsor). Rights holders reach out to brands, they meet, they pitch, and deals are negotiated and eventually done. In reality, the landscape and the process is entirely different and more involved.

For those looking to succeed in this space, understanding 3rd parties, who exert influence on the relationships, and are vital to their success, could be the difference in you being great at your job or not surviving in this  cut-throat industry. (more…)

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.

Whether you are a brand, or a rights holder, you’ve no doubt been in situations where a sponsorship has gotten off on the right foot, and with all the right intentions, but then one, or both, parties have struggled to bring the sponsorship to life and activate it well. (more…)

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.

Trend #4 in Nielsen Sports’ Commercial Trends in Sport 2017 looks at The Greater Fusion of Sports and Entertainment. Whilst the trend discusses more than just music and makes mention of fan zones, access to talent etc, the statistics within the report are phenomenal. (more…)

How Rights Holders are being forced to adjust sponsorship because of changing attention spans

September 5th, 2017 Posted by

As I sat down to write this blog, I got completely side-tracked by a man outside my office window who was hosing a piece of dirt. My interest was drawn elsewhere and I forgot what I was doing.

Oh, that’s right!

I was about to write about trend 3 in the Nielsen Sports’ Commercial Trends in Sport 2017 – Changing Attention Spans Prompting Rights Holders to Rethink.
