Sports Sponsorship Author : John A. Fortunato Publisher : McFarland Total Pages : 228 Release : 2013-07-31 ISBN 10 : 9780786474318 ISBN 13 : 0786474319 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Sports Sponsorship Book Description: This book focuses on how the sponsorship of sports works: the costs, the goals, evaluation and selection of the property a sponsor chooses, how to activate a sponsorship, how to create a brand association, public relations and brand image possibilities. Anything is possible in a sponsorship, it is simply what the sponsor and the property can agree to during their negotiations. There is, for example, the opportunity for product category exclusivity--no competing brand at a particular location. With the audience being harder to reach because of technology, sponsorship continues to be a viable way to obtain brand exposure and better connect a brand with a consumer. With global sponsorship spending totaling more than $51 billion, it is clear that many companies see this as an important promotional communication strategy.
