Sponsorships can be more than a logo placement. 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. 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.

We live in a digital world, surrounded by the most
powerful innovations in human communication since
the invention of the printing press. We document our daily lives on a global scale. With Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media sites, we are always plugged in, consuming and producing content every minute of every day.
Understanding the power of social integration is
half the battle; finding the right tools and strategies
to help you do this easily and effectively is equally
important. Knowing what to look for and what to get out of a social experience platform is extremely important in creating a successful campaign, product launch, or dynamic brand experience.
The old adage, "you get what you pay for" may no longer be true when it comes to traditional paid media investments. Effectiveness of traditional advertising and paid media - TV, newspaper, print - is on the decline, so marketers are choosing to push their dollars to social advertisements. In fact, 62% of marketers expect to increase their spending on Facebook marketing, along with other social media sites, over the next year.
Marketers now must focus their attention on getting more from their advertising efforts by making sure that their media strategies work together. This means their paid media must work with their owned media to get more consumers to engage and participate - thus driving more earned media and amplification for their brand.

We are living in the most revolutionary era in human communication since the invention of the printing press. For the past few years, marketers have ‘woken up’ to consumers who have the power to express their views anytime and anywhere. ‘Social’ is hot, and if nothing else, a response to this awakening. Now, the lines between paid, owned and earned media have been blurred, if not erased. Social media crosses the barrier between the three. It’s fast-paced and chaotic.
We partnered with the research firm Sentient Services and surveyed more than 200 consumers about their attitudes, opinions and beliefs about brands and social media integration. The respondents come from all over the country, with all different incomes, lifestyles, and social media habits. Universally, the data supports what we’ve already seen in action: consumers want to engage with brands that integrate social media, and they prefer to do business with social brands.
Let's get started!
The new world order of media and advertising demands that brands experiment and search for new ways to drive consumer engagement. As marketing and media strategy becomes ever more important, brands must look for ways to optimize paid, owned and earned media. Paid media is everything that you spend advertising dollars on such as TV, radio, print, digital advertising, and sponsorships. Owned media includes your website and other “owned” assets, and earned media is defined by the social amplification and interaction you “earn” through active participation with your customers.
How do you create the perfect “owned media” experience for your customers, and what is the right formula for paid media to maximize your earned media opportunity?
