MAKE YOUR BRAND STAND OUT THROUGH SPONSORSHIP
Brand Association: Both TV channels and programmes are themselves powerful brands. Their prestige, popularity and perceived values can rub off on those brands that associate with them.
Emotion: A sponsoring brand can create a deeper emotional relationship with the hearts of loyal viewers.
Isolation: Sponsorships can be seen by viewers are separate from ad breaks, with a guaranteed prime position and maximum visibility with your chosen target audience.
Multiple Strategies: Sponsorship can be used to fulfil a wide variety of roles for brands, from launching new products with scale and importance, repositioning, increased recall, creating fame and influencing purchase decisions.
Increased Exposure: Sponsorship can deliver a consistency of audience, time of day and environment.
Please take some time to look through the opportunities and if you are interested in aligning your brand with any of the programmes or channels, please contact your SKY Advertising Business Director for more information or simply email us a brief and we will come back to you with a solution.
