  • 1. NEW APPROACH. NEW INVENTORY. NEW REVENUE. 3 STEPS TO INTEGRATING SOCIAL MEDIA INTO YOUR SPONSORSHIP OFFERINGS
  • 2. SPONSORSHIPS CAN BE MORE THAN A LOGO PLACEMENT. LOGO
  • 3. 3Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships Still need proof social is the way to go? We’ll give you 1,700 reasons. That’s the number of banner ads consumers get served every month.* On top of that, people are (over) exposed to more than 16,000 commercials annually – and struggle to recall any.* It’s not an exaggeration to say consumer attention is fragmented. So how can you ensure the packages you sell create affinity between brands and the consumers they desperately covet? By giving everyone a chance to connect with each other. After all, your audience is probably already talking about your event on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. SOCIAL SETS SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES APART. • Differentiates your packages from other media outlets • Allows for new revenue while increasing value of owned properties • Enables unique, consumer- centric experiences • Lets sponsors communicate with audiences in a way they love • Enables a dialogue that is one-to-many • Sparks relevant conversations and word-of-mouth IN FACT, THEY SHOULD BE. Don’t just put a sponsor’s logo in your ads (and vice versa). Instead, give interested brands a way to really grab the audience’s attention. 80% People who skip through commercials 33% Display ads paid for, but never shown 0.1% The average click-thru rate for banner ads *Sources: Solve Media, A.C. Nielsen
  • 4. 4Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships $ PUT THE “I” IN SPONSORSHIP When in doubt, think of opportunities to interact — polls, conversations and more. By asking your audience what they think, it moves the focus to them. Companies are drawn to this dynamic new sponsorship model as it amplifies their brand and delivers greater ROI. Sure, this is a big de­parture from showcasing sponsor logos, but it can have far more impact, too. Don’t be afraid to try it. 62% of consumers would rather engage with a social brand. ONE RELATIONSHIP DEEPENS THE OTHER By creating experiences consumers want to take part in, you’ll make brand sponsorships less passive. Whether it’s at a venue (jumbotron, touch walls) or online (websites, second screen apps), social sponsorships allow advertisers be a part of conversations that are already happening without them. Instead of merely being affiliated with an event, sponsors can now be viewed as an integral part of it. WHY TRADITIONAL SPONSORSHIPS LACK ADVERTISER APPEAL— HERE’S A HINT: IT HAS TO DO WITH ROI.
  • 5. 5Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships Social sponsorships can happen almost anywhere a traditional sponsorship can — at a sporting event, on-air or across the web. Just ask yourself where your audience will most likely to want to interact with these experiences. Is it on a jumbotron? During halftime? On their phones? Choose wisely and you’ll spark conversations while spurring word of mouth. WHY EMBRACE SOCIAL? The question should be “why haven’t you already?” • Attract more attention • Create communities • Encourage participation • Increase reach and amplification • Drive traffic • Spur discovery TURN YOUR FANS INTO WELL, FANS. 1 STEP OFFER SPONSORS AN ENGAGED AUDIENCE— INTEGRATE SOCIAL MEDIA THE ADVANTAGE TO BRANDS: A DIALOGUE WITH CONSUMERS THE ADVANTAGE TO YOU: A NEW REVENUE STREAM
  • 6. 6Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships GAME. SET. MATCH. THE US OPEN + XEROX Live Event, Website Integration When sponsorship demand exceeded the available opportunities, the U.S. Open needed to get creative. The result: this 8’ X 50’ digital installation, which was placed right outside the venue. Both the wall and its companion web page displayed the most compelling U.S. Open posts from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. By showcasing fans’ passion in real-time, it pulled in those who were on the sidelines. Limited inventory doesn’t have to limit revenue
  • 7. 7Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships SCORE! THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS + VERIZON Facebook App GAMETIME, a Verizon-sponsored second- screen experience, was the right call for fans looking to compete in contests with other fans, weigh in on the game via polls, and tweet what they thought about the players and plays. With a live-stream of every game and ESPN radio feeds, GAMETIME was where fans headed when they weren’t heading to FedEx Field. 41% of all TV-related tweets are about sports programming
  • 8. 8Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships The key is making sure what you’re asking companies to sponsor is something that aligns with their brand – and is something that they could own long-term. For example, Home Depot has been sponsoring ESPN’s College Game Day for nine consecutive years. Attaching themselves to an experience year after year, Home Depot has leveraged a lasting value on an ongoing basis. When the match is sustainable and ownable, it will resonate with brands, consumers, viewers and readers over and over again. 5 TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL SPONSORSHIPS • Look for partners that will appeal to your audience • Find ways to grab the audience – follow hashtags, conversations • Use what you’ve learned to tell authentic stories that captivate • Constantly re-evaluate your sponsorship relationships • Continue to provide new ways to keep sponsors (and audiences) interested BUILD TO LAST 2 STEP CREATE “OWNABLE” SPONSORSHIPS THAT BRANDS WANT TO INVEST IN LONG-TERM INNOVATIVE SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES OFFER SPONSORS REPEATABLE EXPERIENCES YEAR AFTER YEAR.
  • 9. 9Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships VERY HAUTE. STYLE.COM + MAC COSMETICS Website Integration MAC Cosmetics brought the runway to fashionistas with an “as-it-happens” feed of photos and conversations from Fashion Weeks around the world. Visitors to the MAC- branded experience could track fashion shows by Style.com reporters or popular hashtags, plus use an interactive map to see where their favorite designers’ collections were being shown (as well as find a MAC retail location). This program was the very definition of fashion forward, and as a result, over 30% of the interactions with the pins on the Social Map were with MAC Cosmetics’ pins. Over 80% of the interactions on the social page were with photos
  • 10. 10Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships GIRLS NIGHT. HBO + URBAN OUTFITTERS Website Integration What do you do when your audience and a company’s audience are the same? Socialize. To celebrate Girls’ season premiere, Urban Outfitters asked their followers and the show’s fans to upload apartment pics to HBO’s very own platform, HBO Connect. One lucky urbanite was given a year’s rent and a $5,000 gift card to decorate their space with Urban Outfitter’s home line (perfect for furnishing that hip Brooklyn loft). An interest in fashion-savvy millennials made this the perfect partnership
  • 11. 11Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships Give your audience an opportunity to see their responses. Serve up polls, hashtag battles, chances to vote and celebrity Q&As. These won’t disrupt the experience; they’ll enhance it (along with increasing your KPIs). TURN HEADS. 3 STEP OFFER COMPELLING EXPERIENCES CONSUMERS WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN MEANINGFUL WAYS. SOCIAL SPONSORSHIPS GIVE THEM THAT CHANCE. 5 IDEAS TO SPUR CONSUMER PARTICIPATION: • Hashtag Battle • Celebrity Q&A • MadLib Fill-in-the-Blank • Photo Wall • Social Heat Map
  • 12. 12Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships GRAND SLAM DUNK. INTERSPORT + DENNY’S Live Event, On-Air Promotion Taking advantage of ESPN’s live broadcast of the 25th annual College Slam, sports marketing agency Intersport worked with Denny’s to incorporate real-time social content into the viewing experience, both onscreen and on the venue’s jumbotron. With Intersport’s Fifth Judge program, those watching were able to shape the event’s outcome. Fans tweeted to vote for every single dunk and the 60,000 topical tweets on “Denny’s Fifth Judge” accounted for 75% of total content around the College Slam event – results worthy of Denny’s signature breakfast. @DennysDiner gained 54% more followers during the week of the event than on the week prior
  • 13. 13Mass Relevance | Social Sponsorships STAR PERFORMANCE. AMERICAN IDOL + AT&T Live Event, On-Air Promotion, Website Integration Already known for their second screen experiences, these online and on-air executions allowed American Idol to reach their audience across multiple touchpoints. AT&T-sponsored Tug of Wars around hot questions happened online and were shown onscreen, encouraging viewers to keep watching. Of all the Tweets around American Idol during AT&T’s sponsorship week, 27% contained the sponsored hashtags #IdolAgree and #IdolDisagree. Not surprisingly, a spike in social activity followed every on-air call to action. Talk about hitting all the right notes! 100,000+ tweets posted in a single evening
