There are different ways to market your brand. But one strategy that has been growing in popularity and importance over the last two decades is sports marketing. Marketing through sports with promotional sports bottles, for example, is one way to boost brand awareness, reach more customers and even build customer loyalty.
Just take your cue from all the big brands that are taking advantage of this marketing strategy. From Nike to Adidas, Slazenger and other big names, there are three ways these huge brands market their products through sports:
One of the most common and oldest strategy business use is through sponsoring promotional events. Slazenger, for example, sponsors Wimbledon events by supplying the official ball for the games. Another notable example is Adidas sponsoring FIFA including the World Cup. Adidas provided the official ball in exchange for their logo clearly displayed on the side boards along the field.
While your brand may not be as massive as Slazenger and Adidas, you can sponsor events too to market your products effectively. Local and school sports events are less expensive to sponsor for smaller businesses.
Businesses also sponsor teams. Just look at basketball, football and other popular sports. Most, if not all, teams have sponsorships from a wide array of brands. From sports-related brands like Adidas, Nike and other major apparel brands, they have a stake in sports teams because it's an effective marketing strategy with huge payoffs.
Even brands that are not completely sports-related are sponsoring teams too. From airlines to beer brands, restaurants, fast food chains and more, any business can take advantage of this marketing strategy for brand expansion.
Big brands don’t stop with simply sponsoring teams. They also sponsor athletes paying them by the millions. Kevin Durant, for example, signed a whopping $30 million per year contract with Nike. Stephen Curry also received millions from Under Armour.
Sponsoring athletes is a pretty lucrative marketing strategy for many brands. They're willing to pay athletes millions because sponsorship is one way to effectively reach out different fan bases, where millions of potential customers belong to.
While you probably wouldn't be able to afford to sponsor an athlete at the moment, this marketing tactic is worth noting. It may come handy in later years when your business is big enough to afford to pay millions for sponsorship.
