Reality Check - Straight Talk about Sponsorship Marketing Book

Reality Check-Straight Talk about Sponsorship Marketing

Sponsorship is a very big business in Canada.  The 2013 Canadian Sponsorship Landscape Study estimates that sponsors invested $1.57 billion in this form of marketing in 2012 with each sponsor that participated in the survey sponsoring, on average, 42 properties (recipients of sponsorships).

Every kind of business incorporates sponsorship in its marketing strategy.  With so much money and effort in this industry, you might think that sponsorship is a successful, clear-cut endeavour.  But it is not.  Every year, many sponsors are disappointed in relationships, implementation and investment outcomes.  And every year, properties overlook what they have to offer, what their audience, members or supporters are worth, and what their sponsors and potential sponsors really need.
