  • The Impenetrable $25 Billion NFL Brand  in Marketing: Sports on 12/15/2015

    Nothing quite compares to the $25 billion brand, not the World Series, not the NBA playoffs, certainly not the Stanley Cup. While other brands may have more widespread awareness than the NFL, it is unlikely that their consumers - and their sponsors - are filled with such unwavering fervor and forgiveness as those of this all-powerful sports league.

    Your brand uses Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, but what about Snapchat? It seems like once we master one social media platform, there's another one waiting to be downloaded. But Snapchat, which has been around since 2011, is gaining value as it is increasingly being used by Millennials. Sports brands should take notice of this, and many have indeed begun to include Snapchat as part of their social media marketing strategy.

  • Female Sports Fans: A Home Run For Sports Brands in Marketing: Sports on 04/21/2015

    If sports brands and teams want to win their licensing game, market to the female fan. And with the start of the baseball season, you can see the growing evidence that MLB teams are taking notice of the value a women's touch can bring.

  • Beyond The Field Of Play: A Celebrity Athlete's Rights Of Publicity in Marketing: Sports on 03/17/2015

    Rights of Publicity (ROP) are defined as the inherent right of every human being to control the commercial use of his or her identity. And much like typical Hollywood celebrities, athletes can increase their personal brand value by capitalizing on their own celebrity status.
