Take media advertisements as an example; it doesn’t target your direct target audience who are more than likely to be your potential customers, it targets anyone who clicks on the channel and stays on it during the break of a show. The outcome will not be as successful as when you are able to target who you want directly and make a difference to their experience through the sponsorship activity.

Unlike any other types of brand awareness, sponsorship allows you to choose exactly who you want to target and you can craft exactly how they would feel about your brand through the sponsorship by giving them an unforgettable experience.
