Sponsorship is a great way to build mutually beneficial relationships between businesses and other local organisations, such as sports clubs. Their players and fans appreciate your support, and the club are all too happy to display your branding prominently, where it’s seen by a wide range of people who might not be reached by your other promotional material. It’s a real win-win situation.
We have a very good relationship with Exeter City Football Club and the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club, as well as smaller sports associations which particularly welcome sponsorship by local businesses.
We can also arrange for our clients to sponsor one-off events, such as awards evenings and gala dinners, where your branding is associated with a high-profile, upmarket occasion, and where plenty of photos will be taken and shared on social media. Or you can show your company’s caring side by sponsoring a charity fundraiser, such as a concert, or the locally well-known and high profile Nello’s Bike Ride in aid of the Force cancer charity.
DM PR & Marketing arranged for the Exeter lettings agency Kirkham Gould to become one of the sponsors of Exeter City Football Club in 2017. We helped arrange a corporate hospitality deal which enables Kirkham Gould to entertain guests in the club’s VIP lounge; Kirkham Gould have also sponsored the club’s ticket booth, which now carries their branding and is seen by all visitors to the football ground.
Director Matt Gould said: “We’re really pleased with the way Dana and her team have raised our profile generally, and also helped arrange our corporate hospitality deal with Exeter City Football Club – we’re big football fans and it’s great to have our branding there, as well as being able to enjoy their VIP facilities.”
Fellow director Tom Kirkham added: “Kirkham Gould are very proud to be working with Dana and our business has seen genuine results in the short time we have been working together. Professionalism and an unsurpassed knowledge of her field gives Dana the edge over competitors, ensuring that you and your business feel in safe hands. Not to mention that she has also made ‘networking’ a fun and rewarding part of our job, she knows everyone!”
