How we quantify the sponsorship impact and demonstrate success

Quantifying a partnership isn’t straightforward, but rEvolution’s research group specializes in measuring the efficacy of sponsorships. From its proprietary sponsorship ROI model developed in conjunction with MillerCoors to surveying fans outside the stadium gates, a customized research plan is developed to meet brand objectives.

Adding onto the research, rEvolution contextualizes the results from its normative database, built from more than a decade of studies across industries and platforms. A comprehensive analysis will leave each client with KPIs among its target audience, attributable sales from the sponsorship and where its results stand compared to other brands. In short, leverage rEvolution’s expertise to make data-informed decisions and optimize results.

Using data from multiple sources to provide comprehensive analysis, our 360-degree approach is developed based on specific client objectives including all major points of investment.

Featured Case Study

Turner Sports – Brand Tracker & ROI

Turner Sports and CBS hold the exclusive rights to marks, logos and promotions around NCAA championships, as well as the media rights for the Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament.

For three years, rEvolution has helped Turner track key measures for partners as well as attribute incremental sales as a result of the sponsorship. Leveraging its proprietary ROI model and experience with properties, data from this study is used to illustrate the value of the March Madness platform.

Across its partners, rEvolution tracks awareness of the sponsor’s involvement in March Madness, the impact of the sponsorship on brand share, perceptions, brand opinion and purchase intent, as well as the return on investment based on both rights and media spend.

I have been collaborating with rEvolution for several years and find their model for attributing increased sales to sponsorship awareness to be unique, important and highly informative. I have determined it to be the best methodology available for evaluating sponsorship effectiveness.

Featured Case Study

Continental Tire – Path-to-Purchase Segmentation

Continental had historically concentrated on the B2D (Business-to-Dealer) audience but needed to evolve its media strategy to target consumers. rEvolution conducted focus groups alongside a segmentation study to make the brand more effective in identifying, reaching and messaging to its target audience.

  • Segment the marketing into key groups according to buyer attitudes and behavior
  • Determine the profile of each segment, specifically, demographics and interests
  • Identify which segments hold most opportunity for Continental Tire

As a result of the study, rEvolution’s media team leveraged the results to target two specific groups, representing half of the tire buying market.
