As switched-on sponsors continue to evolve their sponsorship programs, other sponsors are falling behind - not because they are less intelligent, but because their approach and tools have not kept pace with recent big changes in sponsorship. It isn't about awareness or exposure any more. In an era of unprecedented consumer power, sponsorship is the single most potent marketing tool you have to create and foster relationships and relevance with your target markets.
'The Sponsor's Toolkit' and the accompanying CD provides a no-nonsense approach to harnessing the power of sponsorship for your brand. This Toolkit thoroughly covers all aspects of sponsorship, providing you with the tools, techniques, resources, and streetwise advice to make your sponsorships really deliver for all of your stakeholders.
Who will benefit from this book? Anyone involved in achieving corporate marketing objectives, including: brand management, marketing, sponsorship, loyalty marketing, information technology, business development, promotions, trade relations, advertising, business-to-business, public relations, corporate affairs and media.
Anne-Marie Grey and Kim Skildum-Reid met in 1996, when both served on the board of the Australasian Sponsorship Marketing Association. In addition to their own pursuits, they have been working together since then, developing and presenting a series workshops for both sponsors and sponsorship seekers around the world. Their first book, 'The Sponsorship Seeker's Toolkit', was published in May 1999 to rave reviews and continued strong sales. It is considered by many to be the definitive guide for sponsorship seekers.
