Advantages of sponsorship in sport and sponsorship benefits
Sports sponsorship truly is a 360° marketing tool. Your content marketing, digital media, PR, hospitality, and
many more activities can be based on your partnership with an athlete a team or sports league. Sponsorship can
provide a strong increase in brand awareness and better brand positioning: the two combined elements will lead
to brand preference and improved sales.
The passion ignited by riders, drivers, athletes, or by teams or any other sportsman in other disciplines, can’t be
rivalled. Also, often their audiences and fans have longstanding and deeply-rooted allegiances. If you select
carefully a sports team or individual to sponsor that matches your brand’s ethos, you’re well on your way to
seeing all the advantages of sponsorship in sport and sponsorship benefits come to fruition.
Sponsorship could be a very powerful weapon for your business in your social media and storytelling strategy as
well, (think of the excellent job done by Etihad in the Premier League, or Repsol in MotoGP). In short, the
advantages are numerous – and all of these things can combine to achieve a great ROI for your brand.
Advantages offered to your business by sponsorships
Sponsorships offer many advantages. Whether you opt for sponsorship in MotoGP or in another motorsports discipline such as Formula 1, or
in any other sport, the benefits of sport sponsorship are not exclusively and merely connected to brand awareness. Visibility is only the tip of
the iceberg: it is definitely very important, and it is the obvious advantage that everybody immediately perceives. However, the list of
benefits is much longer.
Let’s have a look at the main advantages that a brand can get by sponsoring a sports team or an event.
Increased Brand awareness
This is a tier-one objective for every large or small business approaching sponsorship: getting your name out there and increasing your target
market is a priority for any organization. Thanks to the extensive media coverage of most major sports series, sponsors can promote their
brand to millions and create more efficient advertising campaigns for their marketing strategies.
Jelf Racing can offer sponsors a wide, international demographic and extended exposure on various media, from television to social media.
A targeted fan base
The fan base, including ticket buyers and people interested in and chatting about sport online, is out there, easy for teams to reach and use
for their own marketing activities. Brands involved in sponsorship activations have the opportunity to come into contact with their fan base and enjoy the resulting commercial benefits. The more the fan base of your ideal target is close to the fan base of the team sponsor, the greater the return on investments. Having in-depth knowledge of the target (sports lovers in this case) offers the brand the opportunity to accurately select the best suited discipline to establish – through the sponsorship – a strong bond with the fans, who are interested in the sponsor’s products/services, and to engage them at precise times to successfully convert them into actual customers.
