Sports Marketing | SPM610
In an ever globalised world, where the greatest sport events are now followed by millions of people around the world, managing and distributing broadcasting rights is a highly professional business where sport agencies are becoming increasingly required for the added value they are able to generate to the product conceived by federations and event organisers, optimising audience, exposure and revenue, using segmenting distribution and brand positioning in collaboration with television broadcasters, marketing agencies, federations and event organisers.
Every day companies are more aware of the importance of communication in business strategy to meet the world’s demands. Pitching the right message at the right time is paramount in branding and therefore in the company’s value. Regarding the internal performance or employee performance, the adequate flow of information proves the functioning and creates a greater emotional bond between the staff and the company. Sports companies, or companies related to the sports industry, must be particularly aware of communication, understanding it as part of their strategy plan and using the values in sports as the base of their projects.
Finally, the communication department, as well as all the other departments, should have a contingency plan prepared to respond effectively in the event of a crisis situation. Avoiding improvisations that may negatively affect the brand’s value built over time. It is difficult to create a brand image, but it can literally take only a few minutes to destroy it.
